Awesome tips! By the way, you can purchase those giant ziploc bags at the grocery store on the shelves with all the other ziploc bags. I'm guessing KMart, Target, and Walmart also carry them. I like to use the crates for packing up. I know they're not waterproof, but they hold up better than boxes. If you get the right ones, you can also hang both letter and legal size folders. I also color coodinate everything in my classroom by subject. For example, math is red. I give the students red folders, all my binders for math are red, the crates, buckets, and baskets of manipulatives are red. Besides labeling, it's a great way to see what's what at a glance.
