I HEART School Supplies and a GOOD sale! #impulsebuyer

Can we be honest here?  I have an unnatural obsession with school supplies!  Like… I need to have (hoard) soooooo many school supplies because they are cute OR (even better) on SALE and could make something in my class MORE cute?!?!  Yepppp… that is the story of my life!  Between Staples, Michael's, Walmart, Amazon, Lakeshore Learning, Target … I mean even Home Depot … I can find something "cute" to enhance my classroom.   AND … I am sure I am not alone in this obsession!

Some current habits:

My cousins and I make dates to go to the teacher's store (they really just want to go to Buffalo Wild Wings because they are OBSESSED with the nachos).  They also find many ways at the store to entertain themselves!

For instance, playing with a playground ball … sitting criss cross applesauce?!? #love

AND… their real reasoning on coming ...

My reasoning for the teacher store trip ...

So, I have been thinking a lot lately about next year and my classroom.  We still have more than 6 weeks (thank the snow), but I have started cleaning out and organizing some piles, etc.  I am in LOVE with my class colors, neons and black, everything matches.  So basically, I just need to make a few changes to the actual decor!  But, there is one spot in my class that needs some LOVE and that is the library!  I have 8373937 books and I have like 7 different colored bins, different sizes and shapes, so I have decided that I am going to go with black and lime green in the library.  I have started making some labels for the bins and fingers crossed that Really Good Stuff has a really good sale on bins … SOON!  hahahaha I am also impulsive and when I want something … I WANT IT … ASAP!

So … some stuff for NEXT year … and because it was NEW it was 15% off!  

AND … what I NEEDED to have for NOW!!!!
With a coupon, so it was like on SALE!?!

Also, a peek at the labels that I have begun creating for my class!  

So … yes … I have a shopping addiction for school supplies!  I mean I think it's necessary, not everyone in my life … agrees! :)

Well… off to Home Depot … no joke I am sure I will find a MUST have there hahahaha!


  1. I'm so glad I'm not alone! I have been thinking a lot about my classroom next year. You're so lucky that you want to keep the theme and colors you have. I've had boho birds for the last few years and I'm starting to tire of the theme. I think I have some serious money to be spent in my future...uhoh! I hope you have a great rest of your weekend, love the library labels you're making!
