Summer Shopping Spree!

So I'm visiting my family in Northern California. I have waited until now to do the majority of my shopping because all my favorite shops are in a 5 mile radius and I don't have to drive all over town in traffic like I do in L.A. Now I just have  to figure out how to explain to my boyfriend why the car is three times as full as it was when we left.

Here's the loot!

My sister and cousin love thrift store shopping. So when I visit that's basically all we do. I was in heaven when I walked in here and saw all this stuff! So cheap!

1. Games were a $1.99. I can't believe I ever played full price for games! I got checkers, battleship, sorry, and mancala (a class favorite)

2. Book were .25 cents. I couldn't believe it. I got some picture and chapter books. If you have a small library I highly suggest checking out thrift stores. They had some really good ones, in decent condition.

3. Pattern blocks 49 cents!

4. World erasers also 49 cents. I'll either put these in the prize box or give them as gift (maybe for Earth day)

Target is always a favorite. Most of this stuff was found in the dollar spot

1. Magnetic holder. I'm going to use it for whiteboard markers.

2. Buckets for sharp and dull pencils

3. curriculum binders

4. stress balls. They were cute. I couldn't help it.

5. first day pencils

I went a little crazy here

1. Happy birthday ribbon to decorate number two

2. basket to keep birthday supplies (stickers, bookmarks and certificates from my pack)

3. Picture frames to hold cute quotes for the library

4. Baskets to use a reading luggage

5. Robot stickers, I have a sticker addiction

6. Tubs to hold group math manipulatives

7.Sock monkey puzzles, for group team building on the first day. I got the idea from one of you in blogland.

8. Desk organizers

9. More puzzles

10. Basket I am going to keep my stress balls in.

Our Wallmart didn't have that wonderful 88 cent section everyone has been blogging about. I was sad. I did however get sheets to use on my bulletin boards. 

Check back tomorrow because I am having my first linky party! I am super excited about it!


  1. Looks like you found a lot of goodies! I love the sheet idea, I bought fabric but sheets are just as good! I think I need to go to our local thrift stores today!
    Check out my blog, I am having a 300 follower giveaway with lots of goodies!
