More Shopping

Round 2 of back to school shopping was just for me. 

My little two STILL do not have a school supply list. Okay people...  it is 9 days until parents are suppose to drop off school supplies at the school and still no list. I will ask tomorrow.. again... when I am at the district office. All teachers were suppose to have them turned into Wal-Mart a week ago.

Bad News: 
I will be shopping when everyone else in town is. 
Just imagine Christmas Eve shopping.
Its like that every weekend as there is only Wal-Mart & Fry's here. 

Good News:
That means there is still at least one more trip coming up!

Okay... whining over
Let's get onto the good stuff!


I heard through the blog vine that Target was carrying some Lakeshore style teacher products... namely the book bins (ya know the set of 5 in a different color for every day of the week) and the heavy duty page protectors. So I ran over there first AND... nothing. =(

But I did find red pocket charts, yellow plastic folders (those are for spelling), monster lunch bags for ummm... I don't know, and Dr. Seuss Stickers.

3 Prong, 2 Pocket folders... paper or plastic? I know most supply lists want the regular paper ones but I say no way. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the plastic ones. They wipe clean. They last longer and look better while lasting longer. Why do they still make the paper ones? Am I the only one obsessed with the plastic ones?

Time and Math Bingo (centers), black and white frames (family photos), black and white paperclips and sticky notes, clear bins divided into 4 areas (ear bud holders?), and tape. Grand Total:  $18.23! The duct tape was $4.50! Ouch! 

I have this 100 hundreds chart that I was gonna outline in the black and then use the green to turn it into a rounding chart. However, when I got home and finally opened the hundreds chart, I realized it was a 200 chart. So that is why some teacher gave it to me. Now... do I keep the 200 or chop it down to 100? The green tape is see-through so it won't work for my plan either. I can buy some red for it. It would match better but now... I don't know if I still like this idea. 

Do you all recognize this picture? It is Dandelions and Dragonflies classroom with the shelves that I have been drooling over forever it seems. Well... they are on sale at Target right now for.... $24.99! RUN... HURRY... BUY SOME!!! I would but then the kids would have to go to school naked this year and I am pretty sure that it is still against the rules. So sadly... they did not come home with me. 

Moving on.

I stopped and had lunch with my amazing husband. Shopping is hard work and a girl gets hungry. Besides, if I go with hubby he will pay and I will have more school money to shop with. Shhh! Don't tell him my secret!

Next Store. 

I happened to pick the exact right day and moment to venture into Dollar Tree. So much so that I had to call and tell hubby all about it on my way home. The district manager was there and was planning on surprising a few teachers with 50% off their shopping for the day. WOO HOO!

Now if I had known this before I had reached the register I would have gotten more but alas I bought 5 puzzles (race on the first day of school), 30 clipboards (its how they knew I was a teacher), 4 sets of ear buds (in red & black!), checkers (for a center), and state capitals (another center?). 

The one thing I went to town for... glass pebbles. I FORGOT! Oh and I wanted to go to Michaels and Home Depot and I FORGOT! I was so excited about my other finds and I spent less than $40 between both stores that I figured I should hurry home before my sweet husband realizes what I am up to.

You really had fun, and you were lucky finding the manager. I haven't done my back to school shop trip YET

WOW... you got a lot of great things! I dont think the Dollar Tree around here will be doing that, but it sure would be nice! Congratulations on all the great finds!

WOW, I wish the Dollar Tree would do that around here! Plastic folders all the way!! I only use the paper ones for meet-n-greet papers for the parents.

WalMart has the bookshelves for $15.88 ( I bought 8 of them for my room!)

What school are you at?
