I’ve been wanting to post something new for a week or so but our internet is running PAINFULLY slow and with two of us in grad school now (my hubby is working on his Administration degree), it’s even more painful!
I stopped by Target yesterday for some retail therapy and to pick up some things my sister told me about. She said that she got some microphones for $1.00 in the party section (for my niece’s b-day goodie bags) and when I asked what kind they were, my son said like the ones I have in my classroom that echo when you talk into them. I went to Target a few weeks ago to try and find them and they had some back near the toys but they weren’t $1.00 ($1.99). I got four of them from the toy area. Yesterday though, I found them!! I also got some cool glasses to go with them (think–Buddy Reading Work Station!!!). I’d really like to try adding a new station this year to my LWS and I think that these will work really well!
I also noticed a new “teacher-y” section on one of the end caps near the office supply area at Target. Bulletin Board stuff, name tags for desks, write on/wipe off charts, and some other cute things–very reasonable too!
I would get some of it, but my goal this year is to pare down as much as I can–I’m tired of not being able to put things away and find things when I need them! 🙂

I also purchased the microphones at Target but found them in 2 places for 2 different prices. In the party section, they were $1.00 and in the toy section, they were $1.99. I purchased them from the party section 🙂
Your sister sounds so cool. Do you need more?
I feel the same way. I’m trying so hard not to buy more stuff this year unless I absolutely need it. It’s very hard not to though.
I’m pairing down myself – trouble is, I see stuff I like and feel twinges to buy it. I am managing to fight the urge though! Thanks for giving so much to the rest of us. It is (you are) appreciated!
