Now on to those fabulous finds of mine from the wonderful land of....TARGET!  I actually owe these finds to my sister who was browsing in the $1 area and passed the word along to my mom.  So thoughtful of her.  <3

 For some reason, this won't turn the right way despite being edited and saved the proper way.  Anyways, it's a dry erase board for a whole dollar that has handwriting lines.  My mom bought me 8 which would be perfect for a teacher group or center if I teach younger grades.  I'm currently going to use it with the twins I tutor to work on word work and handwriting.

 I love these wire trash baskets!  My first grade mentor teacher has the larger ones that are sold at Bed Bath and Beyond for the college students, and she places them in the center of the tables when students are doing projects that create a lot of trash.  Saves the room from being completely littered and from students getting "lost" on their way to and from the trash.  Price: $2.50
 These are essential for any classroom organization for art supplies!  I haven't bought them yet since I don't know what I will be teaching, but they are on my wish list if I get a primary grade level.  Price: $2.50
 And last but not least, this find is actually from Wal-Mart.  I snuck away from the Mr. to wander down the school supplies claiming I wouldn't buy anything....which I had planned not to, until I found this.  I just HAD to have it!  Absolutely adorable.  It was a whopping $0.97!!

Well that is all I have for now!  I should probably get to bed so the Mr. doesn't get mad at me.  I have lots of household things to do tomorrow AFTER I get my beauty rest of sleeping until noon.  :)  hehe

PS.  I still could use some advice for coming up with questions for the interview on Monday!  Please help!


  1. Love the idea of mini trash cans for messy projects. Genius! I'm a new follower. Congrats on your award!
