The one good thing about school starting!

Ok...I am lucky. Every year, I get to join parents everywhere in buying their children's school supplies. I set out with lists and scour the sale ads for the best bargain. Just today I got notebook paper for just one cent! Seriously? This is not why I consider myself lucky. I am lucky because, as a teacher, I get to shop for my supplies too! I returned used ink cartridges to Staples and got a lovely check for $27 to use there. After getting the last few things on Nate's list, I got some things for me. Post-its shaped like stars, pretty pens, an awesome notebook and Mr. Sketch skinny smelly markers! (If you could see me now, you would see me smiling and jumping around!) While I am not quite ready to head back to school, I may be willing to take my new toys, I mean tools, out of the packaging!


  1. I didn't realize that you could turn in ink cartridges for credit :) Since I'm lazy..... I will save mine for you :)Looking forward to your blog.... mine's like therapy to me ... :) Kristine

  2. Oooooooh! Blogging as therapy! Ummmm... uh oh! Does that mean I was *seriously* messed up????

    New school-ish supplies are so much fun!

  3. What a delightful blog! The idea of blogging "the little things" will make your life richer...and ours too. It's an online notebook - did you see that blogger will print them too? Thank you for inviting me here. I think you'd also like the "Slice of Life Challenge" at the Two Writing Teachers blog.
    This is a great layout, and I look forward to coming back. You know, I swear half our our teaching genes come from falling in love with school supplies.
