I had seen the pic below on Pinterest, but it didn't have a working link, not sure who to give credit to. I liked the idea a whole lot, but I noticed that the bucket used was one of those really large Home Depot buckets.
I really needed a smaller version for my classroom. I don't have a desk, so I thought a smaller version would work well by my computer or at my teaching table. So, with a few inexpensive supplies from Hobby Lobby, my bucket was complete! I bought a plain bucket from the party section, a craft tote for $6.99, and some sticky back velcro. The totes came in other colors as well. I know I saw black and white and a pink one for sure.
Here's the finished bucket.
