I am a very organized person too.
When I labeled my tubs, boxes, containers, etc., I used the clear pockets and clear labels. These are the type you slide your own piece of paper into for labeling.
I am so glad I did that! After years of teaching at a grade level, I was assigned to a new grade level. If I hadn't used the clear pockets, I would have been picking labels off my containers. I didn't have enough storage room to keep all the old units, so I gave most of the "stuff" away to new teachers.
I replaced labels like "Native Americans" with "Space" for example, and was ready to start collecting information, ideas, and creative projects for my new units.
