In a conversation that my husband and I were having the other day, he stated that I always manage to find a way to spend money, even if it's only $2.... Yea, duh.... why wouldn't I spend it. Dollar Tree, Target (especially The Dollar Spot), Ross, TJ Maxx, Hobby Lobby, Michaels and so many others were made just for people like me and some of my fellow classroom shopaholics. I think he is just jealous because when I shop, I manage to get waaayyy more items than him.... what do I mean... I'll explain.... We both plan to spend $20 in a store. The ONE item that he needs is $19.99, the TWENTY items I need to take up more space all over the house is $1.00... Yep, I WIN!!!
But anywho... one hundred and something dollars later, I'm back at home. Here are some items that I purchased to use in my classroom:
Dollar Tree Purchases:
Student Work Grabbers
Storage Bags ( I will probably use these to store buddy reading materials/center supplies.)
Student Table Storage Containers
Hanging Monkeys ( I plan to use them on a bulletin board.)
Hobby Lobby Purchases:
More Scrapbook Paper.... Whoo Hooo!!!!! Love, Love, Love!!!!!!!!
I will be using this fabric to make cushions for some crates for the reading center! Yes, MY PRINT AND COLORS!!!!!! I may never change my theme again! LOL!!
File folders and ribbon paper clips
OMG!!! MY COLORS.... CURTAINS!!!! There are two panels in each pack for $5.99. I have two large windows in my classroom to display these babies!!
Storage boxes... Idk how I will use these, but "I couldn't just leave them in the store. ARE YOU CRAZY?!?!?" (Those were the words that I said to that husband of mine.) HA!
PENS, PENS, PENS!!! JOY, JOY, JOY!!!
"You better shut up!!!" is what I said to myself when I saw this bad boy! This is going to be perfect for the classroom library area. YES.... It's a RAINBOW ZEBRA RUG!!!
Target and Party City Purchases
My future "Snack Bucket" (its rather large) and a shoe organizer that I will use for something. I haven't figured that out yet.
Ok... the picture is upside down, but oh well.... I will be hanging these from the ceiling somewhere!
MY WORK FOR JUNE IS DONE, BUT JULY IS A COUPLE OF DAYS AWAY! I CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED!!! tee-hee..... My husband would be ready to cash in on the insurance policy if he heard me say that, so let's just keep that secret to ourselves. Please and thank you! Haha!!
Thanks again Kristen for this linky!! I will definitely be sharing again! Too much fun not to!
