    I need to do my bulletin boards, and I wish I didn't have to drive 20 miles to the teacher supply store. Where else do they sell paper - Walmart? Office supply stores? Anyone know? Thanks!

    My Office Depot sells it, but usually I just get it at school. We've got huge rolls in the main office for us to use :)

    dw1,
    Before you buy anything, check with your school. Every school I've ever worked at has had huge rolls on paper on a big metal cart for everyone to use -- free for the teachers!

    I still buy paper sometimes because I prefer the fadeless paper for boards I plan to leave up all year -- but the other stuff is great, and it is free. Check first. Ours is hidden away in a back hallway behind the auditorium -- if someone didn't clue you in, you'd never know it was there.

    I use plastic table covers. They are hard to tear. They never fade and quite durable and much less costly than paper if your schoold doesn't supply it.

    Our school doesn't provide it, most teachers just hang up construction paper.

    Another idea is $1 clearance fabric.

    I know a lot of teachers that use fabric and love it.

    I did fabric and I'm sooooo happy with my BBs!

    I got my fabric for $1.99/yard at JoAnn's and then I used my 15% off :)
