I was in Dollar Tree yesterday with another a friend who is also a teacher. There was a woman who was pretty much wiping out the teacher and classroom section. I mean she was buying everything! My friend asked her if it was her first year teaching b/c she was buying so much. She said "No I don't teach I buy this stuff and sell it at the flea market for double what I pay" as she laughed. It made us very mad! My state as well as most of yours have not received raises in years and we also do not get our supply checks this year. So, I have to shop as cheap as possible. I was going the the dollar tree just to get a new alphabet for my room, name plates, and teacher post cards to send to my new kids. She took all of that type of stuff. My friend asked if she could be so kind to let us have those items, and she said no. We only have one Dollar Tree that is in my town, so I hope they are able to restock soon. I know the woman has every right to do what she did. It just irritated me a bit! It brought we back to when I worked at Victoria's Secret in college. We would have a sale on the bath products during Mother's Day, Christmas ect. This group of about 10 would come in and wipe us out. The really liked to buy the stuff that was seasonal too. They would then wait until our sale went off and sell the product for full price at the flea market. If it was seasonal they would make the price higher since it was hard to find.
