Target and Michaels: cheap classroom supplies this week! Save on your classroom purchases!

So I will start with the motherload of books I found in the dollar spot at Target! There were 8 different level 1 and 2 readers and 4 class readers. The books are fun science an social studies books as long as just for fun level 1 readers. Now you know why I am so excited to get these for $1, because they are normally $4-5 at any other store! You can also see that I stocked up on sticky dots (150 per pack) and french fry holders (not sure what I am doing with these yet but I am sure they will come in handy for a center or game). The dollar spot also had spring themed BBQ stuff and gardening supplies.If you haven't been this week I would suggest a trip! And now for my Michaels score: I went in looking for a scrapbooking punch and came across this great set of perfectly sized alphabet stamps, can you guess how cheap they were? $4.99, yes that is right $4.99 for an entire set! I bought 2 plus got my 15% off for being a teacher what a steal! So of course I loath the Michaels waiting line because it has their enticing in line junk but this time I was pleasently surprised to find a bin full of DVD's that were appropriate for my kiddos at school. Now I rarely show a movie becasue I don't believe kid are at school to watch tv, but when one of those days comes where I am tearing my hair out these will come in handy. At $6.99 with 15% off I was happy. Altogehter I would say I had a very succesful shopping day today. And don't forget Michaels and Joannes give teachers and extra 15% off their entire purchase plus you can use your smart phone to pull up coupons to use at both stores and Hobby Lobby!!!!!
