Hi friends! I'm Jodi from The Clutter-Free Classroom and one of my absolute favorite things to do is transform piles of furniture in a bare space into a colorful, organized home away from home for teachers and students.

Although educators don't know what the new school year will bring, it is always fun to dream about what your teaching space (either at school or in a corner of your home) will look like this year.  

The good news is it is easy to create a customized, beautiful space on a budget. 

I am excited to share some tips and links to my FREE Classroom Decor Guide with you so you will have them when you are getting ready for the new school year.


It is helpful to start by picking a color scheme for your classroom. 

Picking a main color with only 1 or 2 accent colors will make your classroom look great without feeling overwhelming. 

Once you have your color scheme selected the real fun begins.

Use these colors for bulletin board fabrics, trim, and containers.

The key to sticking to a budget is thinking outside the box and using materials that are not found in the pages of a teaching store catalog. 

This will allow you to make the most of your color scheme, save money and create a look with patterns and textures that make it one of a kind.

The Classroom Decor on a Budget FREEBIE details ten of my personal favorite items that look AMAZING when used as classroom decor (although that is not their main purpose). You'll see how to use all ten when the free guide lands in your inbox, but you can get a sneak peek of two of them in the photo below.


Another great way to make your classroom look fabulous on a budget is to get organized with the items you need in your classroom space anyhow. 

Repurpose cans and containers to house colorful school supplies.Pair them with a neutral background for an organized and functional look with pops of color.

I welcome you to download the Guide for Classroom Decor on a Budget for FREE here.

I would love for you to stop by my personal blog, The Clutter-Free Classroom to find lots of tips and photos to help organize and manage your classroom.
