What kind of personal things do you keep in your classroom or office? Stuff for emergencies? Stuff to make your day smoother? Stuff to remind you of home? I keep: Tampons Advil / Tylenol / Alka-Seltzer, Decongestant Lotion Hand Sanitizer Nail clippers Nail file Sewing kit Safety pins Extra outfit (Comfy pants, tank, sweater, underwer & socks) Umbrella Lightweight jacket for days it's chilly and I didn't expect it Chocolate, lots of chocolate Spare change for the vending machines Personal ink pens, pencils, etc., because the ones my school supplies are crap A few breakfast / lunch items: tuna, soup, cans of V8, granola bars, crackers, snacks, etc. Okay, I think that's about it. I don't have a lot of personal items as far as decorations go... it's mostly just "in case of emergency" kind-of stuff.
