My state has this pretty awesome resource for teachers. It is called Resources for Rhode Island Education. It is a big warehouse full of amazing recycled products for teachers to use. A lot of the products they have are items that stores and factories would normally throw away, but a teacher would love! For example, they have HUGE piles of different size and color poster board. They have ribbon, empty jewelry boxes, pieces of cloth, petri dishes, and so much random stuff. It is a great place to get things for classroom projects.
They also carry quite a few Avery products as well. Binders, labels, post-its, business cards, postcards, etc. Some of the items are individually priced but the products are mostly sold by weight. They have a giant scale and you put everything you want on the scale and pay by the pound.
Today I walked out with this:
for only $2.00!! It would have cost me over $25 at Staples. They also accept donations, which I always give! I am so thankful that I can get a lot of the resources I need (and many I don't!) from this place. There really are people out there who want to help teachers! Click here for more information.
In other news, I think I have a sticker problem:
I kinda organized it:
But I'm sure it will get messed up as soon as I touch it again! I need a better way of storing my large collection of stickers.
Also, I have hit 400 blog followers and 100 FB followers (at the same time)! Look for a giveaway soon!!
