    After a three day marathon, I have finished all shopping for next school year. I spent less than $100 and this is what I got.

    60 packs of pencils .60 cents
    70 3 ring binders, $20
    180 notebooks, $18
    30 pencil cases .30 cents
    30 pencil sharpeners .30 cents (I will have them in group buckets, but I expect at 60% loss rate)
    Stencils 5 in a pack $3.29
    Pocket folders 70 .70 cents
    Glue sticks .20 cents for two, got 20
    Scissors .50 cents a pair
    Erasers 80, $2
    Dictonaires and Thesarus, .50 cents each
    Pocket chart $1
    10 cooperative group supply buckets $10
    Historical coloring books for sponge activities (15 topics) FREE

    Last week I got small white boards for me to use as daily agendas for my three classes at $7 each, 50% off, and a white board with a calander on it in a custom made wooden frame (it beautiful!) $4.99

    And I am better outfitted than I thought I would ever be, I have stuff everywhere and I am actually getting excited for next school year. I might actually crack open those 10 textbooks for my classes and actually, umm read them.

    I wanted to thank you all for telling me about the sales, I would not have known otherwise, because of you guys my kids will have better lessons than I could have provided on my own.

    So give yourselves a pat on the back for a job well done!

    Awesome! I plan to hit the stores tomorrow--or later today I guess. It's pretty late right now.

    Where did you get the free coloring books?

    I know what you mean.

    Yesterday during my Staples run I bought myself a new binder to hold all my algebra I notes.

    I guess that means that today I need to start making some, huh??

    Don't put all your supplies out the first day. Save some back and add as needed.

    If you expect supplies to disappear, maybe you ought to go back today and buy a few more to put out after Christmas break.

    I have piles of things I need to take to my classroom and start to organize. I figure I'll wait until the first week of August so I don't burn myself out to fast.

    OK, Target, here I come.

    Even though I'm math, I like having those in my classroom for my homeroom kids.

    Free coloring books, well from the internet baby. I typed in free historical color books and got tons of free printable pages. It took a few hours to go through and print what I wanted, but now I have coloring books which I will use as sponge activities, and allow students to hang it when they are done, so I only have to decorate part of the classroom. (got most of the idea from someone here) It only took a few hours of work, but now I have it free.....so it was worth it.
