Raise your hand if... have TOO MANY passwords!

Did you raise your hand? If you are a teacher I know you did! We have passwords for everything and not only that but we have passwords for our students now too! I can promise you that one hundred MILLION is probably not an exaggeration! So what can I do about it? Nothing? Actually...

I recently saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be the perfect addition to my desk as we begin the school year. It is always hectic and the one hundred MILLION passwords that I need to remember tend not to be in the forefront of my mind.

Enter "Tolsby" (hey, I didn't name it...) the $0.99 frame from Ikea. This little guy is going to be the keeper of my one hundred MILLION passwords.

All I did was create a document on Microsoft Word listing all of my usernames and passwords. I then cut it to fit the 4 x 6 frame and {voila}! I had an instant spot for all of my...well you know...all those pesky passwords.

I obviously did not put any personal passwords on the list and listed only those that would be extremely uneventful to "hack" such as Scholastic Book Clubs and BrainPop Jr. The other great thing about this idea is that in the event that I am not at school and a substitute teacher (or my student teacher) need to get onto one of our bazillion programs they can! All they need to do is simply turn that bad boy around and sneak it off my list. Organization at it's best people. Love it.

Oh and yes, I will add a photo soon. I just didn't have a good one handy.

  1. I love these little frames! I stocked up on them when I was at IKEA. They have so many fun uses.
