Shopping Linky and I Have an Issue....

Hello all!  Um, well, my name is Tara and according to the following pictures, I have a HUGE problem!!!

Super cute bins from Hobby Lobby...clearance!!!  Woop! Woop!!

Little zipper pouches I'm going to use to put word work pieces in.  Dollar section Target:)

Exhibit C:
Black/White file folders - 3 different patterns - Staples

Exhibit D:
Duct Tape for my new quilt that I haven't made yet - Walmart

Exhibit E:
The little black things are expandable files.  I'm going to use those to hold letters and again word work pieces. - Target Dollar Section
The picture frames were on clearance at Hobby Lobby:D  

Exhibit F:
More little cute zipper pouches for pieces of something.....little containers for dice and microfiber clothes to cut up for dry erase boards. Staples (Thanks Molly!!)

Exhibit G:

So there you have it!!!  My haul for June and the majority of it bought on clearance or in dollar sections.
Ok all.....gotta run, the hubs just pulled up and busted me with all this in the living room.  Oops!!!  It was all in a big bin before, you know, hidden, camo, piled........................

  2. Ahhh!!! I am so jealous!!! Everything on here I want!!! I am doing a black, white, red, and gray color theme in my room for the new year! I LOVE IT ALL! When I go to Staples, Dollar Store, and Creative Teaching Press to get everything. If my husband finds out I am going to have him come see you because you will be to blame! Lol...

  8. HAHA I do this all the time!! Thanks to your linky party this summer it's more of the crafting I'm shopping for now :o). I'm also making (or trying to make) a duct tape quilt! I just love your black expandable folders. Are you doing an all black and white theme or throwing in another color?

    Love it all!

  11. I absolutely LOVE those polka dot baskets. I am going to have to find myself a Hobby Lobby. I have never been to one and nor have I been to Target. I am feeling deprived of all this goodness. Thanks for sharing your great finds :)

  17. Oh SNAP! I have some catching up to do! I LOVE everything! and I ALWAYS camo pile hide new purchases so by the time they are discovered I can non chalantly say...oh that's not new...

    ReplyDelete
  18. I LOVE the Hobby Lobby bins! Your other finds will be so cute. Your camo piling made me laugh. I totally do that, too! My teacher stuff is all under the stairwell in my basement, so if it's under there hubby would never know what's new or old!
    Happy July shopping!

  19. Too funny! I have a ridiculous stock pile as well. Hidden of course. I debated the borders for so long and I love them! I ended up with the dots collection though this year to go with all of my primary colored tubs. I spent so much time and energy spray painting the tubs that I cannot change color schemes yet.

  21. Oh my girl! You have been busy!! I love all your stuff! I really want to get colored duck tape like that too. I just need to find some in my colors. I really want to make a quilt like I saw on Pinterest with the students pictures in it! Can't wait to see what you keep buying over the summer so I can make my list a little bit bigger! Teachers love to shop!

  22. Man, you are an awesome shopper!! And everything is so matchy and cohesive and just lovely to look at. I wish we could go shopping together!!

    I especially love all of those borders you found--that middle one is so pretty! Thanks for linking up my friend!

  33. WOW-just WOW. You remind me of me spending money on my classroom. If I had all that money now--no-I am thankful that I have been able to purchase things for my classroom. One assistant principal at my school (coming from middle school) thinks it is so neat how much stuff elementary teachers have. I enjoy reading your blog and I am nominating you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Check out my blog for the details.

  40. Hello! I just recently started following your blog and noticed you are doing a black and white theme with bright colors. I have a free download of black and white letters on flowers for word walls if you are interested. Just thought I'd share with a fellow teacher :) I'm working on some other black and white themed things as well!
