Shop 'til I drop!

I'm so excited to blog have no idea!

I want to share a couple of things I bought yesterday.

First...I've been trying all summer to find sand chairs at a reasonable price. Last night I was at Walgreen's looking at school supplies when my boyfriend found the best thing ever in the clearance aisle. SAND CHAIRS 75% off; making them $3.74 each! WOO! I really wanted sand chairs for around my room for reading spots. I grabbed one of each color: blue, lime, and orange. Feel free to snag some up at your Walgreen's!

Second... I really want to recreate this image with my kiddos during the first week of school:

So I picked up a new black dry-erase board at Wal-Mart, along with a pack of Crayola Dry-Erase Bright Crayons. While students are holding up their dream job, I will be holding up something that looks like this:

Cute, right?! I know, I know. The link on Pinterest took me to a photographer's blog, so I can't credit the teacher, but what an awesome idea! I'm sure the parents will appreciate it so much when I send their child home with a 4x6 of their class' "When I Grow Up..."

Third...isn't something I purchased, but something I'm in the process of making. At Open House, I want to put these bad boys out for parents to take home and stick on the refridgerator! I picked up some flexible magnetic sheets {3 pack} at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon so it was only about $6. I plan on printing them right at home. I may tweak it some before I I'll post a pic of the final product when I print them! They print 10 a sheet, so I will have 30! I may print more depending on how many students I have. You never know how many divorced parents you will have and some parents may like one for work, too!

I want to share a couple more things, but not until they're fully finished. Maybe I'll get them done when I get back from Des Moines tomorrow, then post in the evening.

Until then, have you found any amazing buys for your classroom or made anything from Pinterest that you're just in love with?! Share by commenting!



  1. I love it all! The picture idea is so cute- I might try it! I was nervous about making my own magnets, but you make it sound doable. :)

  2. What program did you use to make your magnets? They are adorable! Love bargain shopping! :)

  3. Thanks! I used Microsoft Publisher. I started with a template but ended changing it a lot! Post pictures if you make some! :)
