Last year my mom complained that she can never remember which grade dd is in because she has the same teacher every year. So dd took it upon herself to give her teacher a new name each year. Last year for 2nd grade ...

That is one amazing storage unit. My daughter just walked by, saw the picture, and said, "Wow, we'll never be that organized." I wonder if my husband could build something like that. It might be difficult to find the right hardware. I need about a dozen of those shelves -- one or more for each room ...
