Back to school sales started today at most office supply stores. I didn't really see much I liked in the Office Depot ad so I just stuck with Office Max and Target. I may go to Staples tomorrow, but there wasn't too much I found intriguing there either. I'm hoping the ads will get better as it gets closer for school to start. My Office Max trip went great. I brought my mom with me so I could get double the limit. The total for everything in the picture below was $12.16! Also, just as a warning the guy at Office Max was trying to say that their had been a misprint in the sales ad, and now there was a limit of 2 for the glue bottles. He still allowed me to get 10 since my sales ad said limit 10, but I don't know if all stores will be as kind.
|20 bottles of glue, 20 file folders, 10 composition notebooks, 4 pairs of scissors, paper mate led pencil starter kit, 12 pk of fine point sharpies, 4 pk of gluesticks and 4 pk of expo markers.|
My next stop was to the dollar spot at Target. They had several racks of items marked 70% off! Each item I bought below was only 30 cents! I bought a couple of books for my non-fiction section and some awesome Let's Cook pads. I plan on using the note pads as a fun way for my students to practice writing informational text/how-to's.
My favorite find at Target were these little bookmarks. They are in the shape of a digital camera and are magnifiers. I thought these would be great bookmarks to keep by my classroom library for students to use. I especially like them for EC students who may want to chunk smaller pieces of text to read.
After Target, I went to Michael's to buy some craft materials to use this week. I will share that in another post though. To end the shopping adventure I stopped at Moe's to get some dinner. Nothing like a Joey Jr and some queso dip to end the day.
