    I went looking for a rug today. All I want is a solid colored rug that is not too expensive. I can't find one anywhere. :(

    I do not have $200 to spend on a rug.

    Have you checked Goodwill/ thrift stores? My rug was less than $20 at the Goodwill.

    I got a pretty large rug at Walmart this time last year for around $20. It was in the dorm area stuff.

    Love the rug!


    If you're looking for deals on rugs...

    Bed Bath & Beyond (sales in their college section)
    (They also have 20% coupons you can use)
    Lowes (remnants & clearance)

    So I assume if you do this then you are not getting a classroom rug big enough for the whole class like you see in teacher catalogs?

    I am hoping to find a decent rug at a thrift store within the next couple of weeks. I have a fairly large remnant left from my living room carpet that I will use if I cannot find anything else.

    Be aware... I think we are not allowed to have rugs of our own b/c the custodian has enough work to do just mopping the tile floor.

    We have carpeted floor, which the cleaning company vacuums every night. :)

    The one I got was 5x7 I think. I only had 16 kids last year so we fit ok on that.

    Mine is definitely going to be too small for them to fit on...I think I might buy beanbag chairs for them to sit on, as well...

    So I guess if they all don't fit its not a huge deal. I'll go looking for one this weekend.

    Mine is probably 6 x 8, and I think I paid $15. You could always buy two and lay them next to each other. I think I got mine from Target.

    So 52X66 is too small right? I am looking online at target. It looks so big though.

    Yeah, that would be about 4' x 5', so it might be a bit small. Is that one affordable enough to get two?

    Its about $45 so I would not want to get two. I would rather buy one for that price.
    Pigeon let us know when you get your new rug.

    You might want to try looking with the college/dorm stuff, too. That's where I found mine.

    I will. Target, Walmart, Ikea, and Bed Bath and Beyond is where I am going to look.
