(Cheap!) DIY Paper Sorter from stacked IKEA Magazine files. Just tape together with packing tape.
Great to email or give out to students and parents at the beginning of the year introductions. Maybe have the students fill one out too to help break the ice of the first week of school.

Awesome way for students to remember where they got a book from!
Dish drainer used for organizing files, etc.! The cup in the corner could be used for pencils or dry erase markers (if your file folder games are laminated). Or take the cup off completely.
Table captains - Oh how they would love these!!
Dry erase circles made out of "sticky vinyl." The blogger said that they are available at Hobby Lobby. She said that they stick to the tables, and she leaves them there permanently. She cleans them daily with Magic Erasers. The kids even cut and glue on top of them and they clean up nicely, but she would probably replace them all at the end of each school year.
2 filing cabinets back to back covered with material make a great magnetic inboard!
