Not Really a Dollar

I just found a new blog through Pinterest.  Amanda over at Mrs. Terhune's First Grade Site!  I thought I was organized, but WOW!  She has some awesome pictures of her organization in her classroom.  I was especially impressed with how prepared she is ahead of time.  One thing that helps her stay organized for the week is the All-Purpose Teacher's Organizer from Lakeshore.

But, $49.95?!? Dang, that baby is expensive.  No thank you.  Thennn it was Target Dollar Spot to the rescue!  They had almost the same exact bins.  They didn't come with the fancy wire rack, but I think I can handle keeping my bins on the shelf thankyouverymuch.  They also had only 4 colors, but, hey green is my favorite color - I got two!  They don't have those labels either, but I made my own!  (which, I think, look better)  Here they are!

And a close-up:

Oh, and one other thing.  They weren't a dollar!  Apparently the "dollar spot"  also includes items that are $2.50.  What's up with that?  But $12.50 is wayyy cheaper than the Lakeshore ones!
I'm so excited to start using them!


  1. Ooh...looks like I need to hit up target! although, a lot of times what y'all post you find in the dollar spot, I never are in my dollar spot. poo....

  2. This looks awesome! Much cuter than my plastic drawers I have, I have a drawer for each day of the week.

  9. Great find! I am a sucker for the Target Dollar Section. In my mind, "Hey, it's only a dollar." At the cash register, "Your total is ......{never a dollar}" :o)

  10. I love the Target dollar spot! I did the SAME thing in my room (I'll have to take a pic) and I love using those bins! It's great to be able to just pick it up and move it around the room during the day, too :)

  11. Wow, what a great find. I'm going to have to start keeping a list of all the things I need to find at Target. It's about 30 min. to the nearest one. I've tagged you in a post...
