Today was staples. Now, you might remember, I work at a title I school. So, a lot of my kids won't come with all the supplies I ask for. So, I try to get what I can before school.
Today was great though. I used like 4 coupons from my weekly staples ad (check online for yours!).
I got 20 composition books so I could do my phonics notebooks.
(available in all my stores - TPT, TN, or Shop on the Blog!)
and 20 spirals. These, I use for writing journals. But I also have a stack at school that are cut in half for math journals!
Yep...that was me, last year.
I had to have a practice run at it, but then I achieved perfections! lol
(update! I was getting a lot of questions on what size blade I used, and hubs said it was a 12" blade, but that you don't need one that big. That just happens to be the size we had on it.)
I also had a 50% off coupon for dry erase markers...so I bought some for my white board, and then my centers.
I also stocked up on some gluesticks and crayons....because it's like they EAT them...does this happen in your room?? I mean, seriously!?! And this glue is probably good for like 1 week - haha!
annnnnd of course I stalked up on ink...I had a $15 off coupon, so why not?!
AND I went to Target today...
I got more gluesticks and bottled glue...and a class set of 3 pronged folders for our poetry journals! Can't wait to show you those!
And my trip to Lakeshore? (if you follow my instagram, you saw that last week), I only bought TWO things...yep...that's right. I bought the big money because I needed the coins. I've had this box for a few years, but this year, my coins went missing...grrr....so I needed to get the box again because I use that ALL the time with my Numbers Every Day pack.
And this isn't even HALF of my pile to take back to work with me....and people think teacher make enough money...they just don't' know how much of our own money we spend on our classrooms...
what have you bought so far?!
