Tag Archives: Reduce Reuse Recycle

I am a Bibliophile

Today, I am beginning to go through my books. I probably have hundreds of books, not including children’s books. I really did not know where to start because every time I do, I start making excuses as to why I should keep the books.

I did a quick internet search and found an article with some helpful hints. It is on the website “becoming minimalist” .

Time to find a notebook so I can write down my sentiments, ISBNs, etc., and a box or two or three.  😉

If you are a book lover, collector, like me and have some tips on how to reduce your collection – please share!


How to Make a School Work Box

Step 1: Choose a cracker or cereal box. Make sure your work or books fit in there first.


Step 2:  Cut off Flaps or leave a few…


Step 3: Glue Construction Paper on



Step 4: Decorate


Step 5: Put your stuff inside!


Another option can be to leave the box without decorations and students can earn stickers on the outside of the box for each achievement.
