First up, cheap but bright little accessories from Walmart. At 88 cents each, I don't even think these count toward the whole "don't spend a lot of money on your classroom" rule. My husband asked what I was going to put in the box (um, stuff) and what the decorative tape was for (um, more stuff?). I had to have them because they fit right in with my classroom makeover. We'll worry about the pesky little details of how to use them later.
After that I moved on to Marshall's so second up, a purple glitter desk organizer-thingy. Yes, please. I love glitter (especially the not-real-glitter-so-it-won't-stick-to-everything kind) and I was wanting to replace my desk organizer anyway because it doesn't match my new theme. Sold! The hubs didn't even try to put up a fight on this one. As a bonus, I must have totally broken his will to disagree at this point because he even volunteered to make me a few extra little dividers for the larger end sections. What a guy!
Finally, another Marshall's find: contact paper. Which, to be completely honest, was actually what we had gone out in search of today. I keep seeing those decorated filing cabinets on Pinterest. I'm not really a read directions kind of girl so I didn't save one, but I'm sure you could easily find them with my friend Google too. PS, do you know how much ugly contact paper is floating around out there? If you find cute stuff, buy it in bulk.
I know I said finally up there, so you're probably thinking this post is finished. Nope. We have a new teacher-friend on our third grade team next year. She's decorating her room with a rock star theme in bright pink, blue, and zebra. She has a guitar and lighting truss and everything (don't worry, I'm totally taking pictures to share when she's finished) so I had to grab her a couple items too. Shhh, don't tell. I'm pretty sure she's too busy
Okay, enough of my stuff. Go link up with Elizabeth so I can see all your scores too.
