School Supplies!

I am linking with Fun in Room 4B on Fabulous Find Friday. 

It's July. Which means that school supplies start coming out and we all start stocking up. Well, I hope I am not the only teacher that might go a little crazy when it comes to buying it.

I have always had an (unhealthy and expensive) obsession with school supplies. In college I worked at the BYU Bookstore in the school supplies section. I loved it. Eventually I got to help pick out supplies and order them. And got free samples. It is hard to leave a gig like that.

So this was some of my winnings from tonight.

This is all from OfficeMax. For $1 each, I got 2 binders, 2 100 sheet spirals, 12-ct box of Sharpies, white out, 2 of the 2pk of mechanical pencils with replacement lead, 2 of the 5pk of dry erase markers and a cube of post it notes. The 4pk of glue was $.25 each and the 10 folders were free. 

I have to say I am just happy with all of that. I am tempted to go back and repeat tomorrow. At least for the Sharpies and dry erase markers. 

Then I stopped at Target for the dollar bins. I cannot resist any new sticky notes. I probably have at least 25 packs of them at home right now. Even more stored in my classroom. 

Then I found my perfect planner for the year. I absolutely loved it!

Head over to OfficeMax and get some cheap school supplies. Take your husband/significant other/friend, check out twice and double your winnings!
