    I know I do..a big container full of stuff I find at yard sales, dollar stores, Target, the teacher store, etc!


    If it is cheap I get it, it will eventually get used!

    I have two boxes filled with the stuff I accumulated from Student Teaching. I had to stop myself from buying other stuff because, really, I have to place to put it.

    Hopefully I'll be able to start buying again soon....

    Oh yeah... since exciting teaching 6 years ago to be a SAHM I have 15 to 20 "teacher" boxes that have been sitting in my basement. I can't wait to go through them... I am sure some stuff is waaaayyy outdated!

    I actually don't have any books. I am literally living in a 11X12 room in my parents house and don't have any place to put them. In fact, I have about 8 or 9 boxes stacked almost to the ceiling with my stuff (mostly personal stuff...clothes, books for me, etc) (thought I was moving last December--plans changed when I didn't get a job). My mom threatened me that if I bought anymore stuff, she'd kick me out :D.

    Once I get a job though, I'm going to have a hard time NOT buying everything I want :)

    I have 2 closets full of boxes and crates. :( Wish I had a classroom to put them in, right?

    Yes! I have two huge bins of children's books that weigh a ton!! I just finished my student teaching, and my second grade mentor teacher gave me a lot of kindergarten files she had. I also have lots of things piled on top of those two bins. Hopefully I will have a place to put them soon! :)

    Whenever I go in Target, I have to shield my eyes from the dollar section.

    I have an office full of stuff -- does that count? :)

    It's hard right now not to buy even more. I have to curb myself!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one! I'm always buying books and stickers and whatnot. Sometimes I feel like such a creeper. :lol: But I do have a legitimate job in 2011/2012. And some will get used this year during my residency. This is my rationale for all the boxes stacking up. :eek:hmy:

    My apartment's basement has a ton of stuff! My apartment is also filled with teacher stuff. I can't wait to get back into the classroom and get all of this stuff out of here :)
