### HOW DO I ORGANIZE THE UNITS?

I chose to store the math centers in Sterilite bins because they don’t take up too much space. It is a tight fit, but I find that they work nicely for me. However, if you choose, you could store the centers in a larger container as well. Within the bin, each math center is stored in a gallon-sized ziplock baggie.
