Teacher Catalogs

Its time to STEP AWAY from the teacher catalogs! I've already placed orders from Really Good Stuff and Carson Dellosa. I received Trend for Kids in the mail today that has all the really, really fun stuff. Plus, I still have to buy pocket folders/spiral notebooks and other random school supplies for the upcoming year. I wish people realized how expensive teaching actually is.

This will be my 1st year teaching full time. Every few trips to the store I tell myself I/m finished shopping. Then I wind up buying more stuff. It seems never ending. Of to buy 12 pairs of scissors and more glue this morning.

One of the wonders of teaching older kids-- I don't really buy much.

Teacher catalogs definitely are addicting. Everything always looks so necessary.

I stopped buying all of those things and started using things like bedsheets, ribbons, etc. I love the crafty, personal feel to it and it is so. much. cheaper.

I love the idea of sheets because they can be used over and over. However, do you have to spray them with a fire retardant or are they already labeled as fire retardant? Our fire inspector makes us take down any fabric that has not been soaked in a fire retardant spray. I have curtains on the open parts of my build in cabinet and velcroed around a table and I only wash them every two years because the spray is very expensive and I just hate the hassle of getting permission to use it.
