Storage for Math Manipulatives

Easy and inexpensive way to organize math manipulatives
I love math manipulatives!  What Primary teacher doesn't!?!  I especially love using mini erasers or seasonal goodies as math manipulatives.  However, organization and storage really becomes an issue when you are scouring and shopping the Target Dollar Spot every chance you get.

I was at the Dollar Tree the other day buying wrapping paper for some upcoming birthday parties, (Side note: They have the best wrapping paper.  Super cute and way cheaper than anywhere else!) when I stumbled across these plastic organizers.

Just for reference... the larger container is about 7.5" wide by 6.5 tall.
The smaller container is 6.5" wide by 5" tall.

The small container easily fit 180 mini erasers.  (Pumpkins, Black Cats, and Spooky Aliens)
These would be perfect to use in math stations, small groups, tutoring, or for independent work.
