I went shopping...

...and now my dining room table looks like this:

I found these cute chalkboard label buckets in the Target dollar spot. Right now I have pencils and glue sticks in them...I'm not sure what I will use them for yet.  

While at Target, I got these pencil pouches for .49 each.  I plan on using these for my kids supplies.  The boxes drive me nuts...they always fall and open and crayons go everywhere.  I know that these will get picked up while they aren't zipped closed and the same thing will happen but I still like them better.  I plan on having the kids bring their bags with them to different stations so they aren't walking around when they need something.  

And I bought these box sets for $5...Target had blue, pink, and this dark gray.  I figured dark gray would go with any color scheme I do in the future so I bought all of them (Sorry if you wanted this color and live by me!).

Then I went to Kohl's and bought some Skippyjon Jones things.  I have plans for Skippy that I'll post about later.  

After Kohl's, I went to Staples to get the 1 cent folders.  I asked about their new teacher rules and they let me get 10 folders for 1 cent and I paid the .20 for the next 15 of them but I will get a full refund (in the form of a credit) on the ones I paid full price for meaning they are free.  We will see if it works! 

I also needed spray paint for some projects...the buckets I wanted to paint were sold out :(

 ...and $1 stamps form Michaels for another project that I will be sharing soon! 

Now it's time to clean the house and start some of these projects!!

Wow! Your shopping day looks like mine, just a little more organized! I bought those bins too. I bought some for my classroom and then some to organize my bathroom! I'm well aware that I'm nowhere near being finished shopping!
