What's a good place to buy clothes pins? I need them for a punch of things in the classroom.
I'm pretty sure most dollar stores have them, don't they?
Some dollar stores, Walmart, Target. I got a pack at Target of 50 for a little over a dollar. Just go to the section where they have hampers, clothes baskets and such.
All of the above...Kmart, hardware store, some grocery stores.
I saw a huge section at my local Dollar Tree yesterday!
Thanks! I'm off to Target tomorrow so I'll take a look there. Also going to the Lakeshore store to (finally) shop for next school year. So excited!

If you're not moving them around a lot, get the Target or Dollar Tree ones. But I suggest investing in one pack of "good ones" for heavy use. The cheap ones always broke on me last year.
Beware - from my experience the dollar store ones do NOT last at all!
Where would I get "good ones." The ones I'll need will be pretty heavily used for keeping track of reading responses, the bathroom sign out and hanging student work, possibly even charts. Thanks!
Walmart, Dollar Store
I've always gotten mine at wal-mart and never had problems with them breaking.
I got some nice ones at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I didn't realize there were "nice" clothespins until I compared these with my Dollar Tree ones! haha
Are they wooden? I need wooden ones so I can write the kids names on them.
They're not wooden, but the best clothes pins I've had were from Japan.
For wooden ones, I was able to buy a huge bag and they lasted for a while. I'm pretty sure I got them from Target. This was years ago, though. If I were you, I would go to a hardware store, first.

Yes. I used them for the same thing.

Separate names with a comma.
