Frugal Friday #1
Welcome to my favorite day of the week! 🙂
During the summer on Friday’s, I will share with you some frugal ideas I use in my classroom.
First up…black socks!
Yes, black socks!!
Best idea ever!
We use black socks in our classroom for a couple of things, but mostly as erasers.
We used to use tissues as dry erase erasers on our whiteboards, but each child would have to get up and get one each time we needed one…wasted too much time!
I thought that there had to be a better option–I started thinking of things that could erase the dry erase marker and came up with SOCKS!! Black socks of course…they hide all the mess that gets erased, so they are perfect for the job!
The best part is that when they get dirty, I can bring them home, toss them in the washer and they are good as new!
They work great on dry erase boards, sheet protectors, clear pockets, and my dry erase stick on stars! They even erase dry erase crayon. 🙂
We have also been known to use them as mitten substitutes if someone cannot find one of theirs. 🙂
