Monday Made It, My Baby & *DEALS*

I'm late to this party because I had to take my baby girl to Pre-School.  It wasn't an easy morning for either of us.  
I found this green basket at the Dollar Tree and I found the birdie at Wal Mart for under $1.  I added ribbon and voila.  I think I'm going to use it to house my dry-erase markers.  I can never find a good spot for them. 
 
 I also mod podged these X-large coffee cans and added bling.  I tried to add stickers that say "bling buckets" b/c I don't have a cricut, but low and behold the stickers wouldn't stick.  So, I'm borrowing a cricut this week.  I bought a bunch of pens and mechanical pencils - they will go in the bling buckets.  


Onto my *Deals*
Target & Walgreens actually paid me this week to walk out the door with school supplies.  Yup, they paid me!!!   I got a great deal for about *D*I*M*E* at Office Depot!
 Walgreens had Bic Cristal Bold Pens on sale for .49c and I had two $1 off coupons of 2 Bic items!  I got 4 sets of Bic Cristal Bold Pens and I had .04c overage.  At Target I had two $1 off 3 Roseart items.  I bought 4 pkgs. of crayons + 3 glues and Target paid me .52c to take them out of the store!!  Of course I spent around $20 at both locations (darn that Target Dollar Spot), so I didn't walk out with change in my pocket!!

While I was @ Walgreens, I found 2 chairs that I think I'm going to put at my writing station.  They were on clearance for $3.50!  Yup, 2 chairs under $8, WOO HOO!  I'm not showing them to you just yet...you'll have to wait for my classroom pics;)




I ran out of ink last night (big shock), so I ran to Office Depot (they are having a 20% off sale for all teachers this week) and while I was there I got these awesome deals!!  5 notebooks and 6 zipper pouches for .11c!  You heard saw that correct!  By the way, I love those Foray pens and they were $2ea  .50c ea.  Yippie!  I love, love, love deals!!


If you're looking for some hot deal this week...check out Walgreen's.  4 Expo's for $2, 6 highlighters for .49c, composition notebooks for .59c and Crayola markers/crayons for .99c!

Thanks for sharing these great deals! I have been trying to stay away from 'shopping' since I have spent so much money on my classrooms already but everyone loves a good deal!

The Expo house is adorable!
