Back to School Shopping!

It's officially back to school season when I head out to shop for school supplies!

Today, I met up with my friend Melissa from The Autism Adventures of Room 83 and we headed out to the Lakeshore Outlet Store in Carson, CA. Shopping is always better when it's down with a fellow teacher who gets the excitement of shopping sales and getting quality goods for rock-bottom prices!

After we had lunch, I headed to Target to hit up their Dollar Spot section. While I adore Target as a whole, the dollar section is where I spend the majority of my time (most of the time on my hands and knees, craning my neck to reach goodies that are shoved to the back of the shelves - the diamonds in the rough!)

I was particularly proud of this "building blocks" (wannabe Legos) find in the dollar section. (My students LOVE Legos…but I'm not about to drop some major change for them, just to have kids lose, chew, and "borrow" them from the classroom.)

I also found these great bins! They look very similar to the ones I already have in my classroom (that I purchased last year through Lakeshore - see here.) I found the green one and BY CHANCE a Target employee was putting the orange one back from a pile of go-backs. I loved them so much that I tried two other Target stores to see if I could round anymore up…but to no avail. (Sad face.)

Although I don't go back to work for another three weeks, today's shopping outing only makes me excited to return to work!
