Best places for supplies

Okay, so I have seen a lot of people doing some summer shopping.  I haven't done much yet, but I have been looking.  Here are some good deals I have seen:

Binders:  Walmart has some of the Avery Durable binders in 4 packs for around $15 online.  That is an awesome price!  Sometimes the Durable binders are like $5-$8 each depending on where you buy them.

A 3 subject notebook:  I like using a 3 subject notebook for meetings instead of keeping staff meeting notes in a teacher binder.  Usually your teacher binder is heavy and bulky to drag to every meeting.  A notebook is much easier.  I also like a notebook with pockets to put all the handouts from the meetings.  I love the Spine Guard 3 subject notebook at Staples.  It is on sale right now for like $2.50 off.  I bought a new one yesterday.  I use the first section for meeting notes, the second for planning ideas, and the third for professional development. It even comes with little flags.

Pens:  My sister-in-law introduced me to Injoy pens.  They are cheap, come in lots of colors, and write very smooth.|prodPage~15^freeText~ink+joy+pens^paramValue~true^refine~1^region~1^param~return_skus^return_skus~Y

Can you tell I love school supplies...for myself?  Lol...I also just told my husband I was taking a break from posting tonight.  Oh, well - I wanted to share some of my favorite supplies.

Side note: How does one break into the guest blogger world?  I think it would be fun to be a guest blogger or have guest bloggers.  Would anyone be interested in being a guest blogger here?  What about doing a guest blogger series on differentiation or anecdotal records - two things I find to be teacher challenges?

P.S.  It looks like I won a Versatile blogger award.  Yay!  So, now I need to think of where to pass that on to.


  1. Congrats on your award! That is wonderful and well deserved! I love school supplies too! I can't wait for the Back to School sales to start. It's like Black Friday for me!

  2. Congrats on the award! You might also check out Big Lots for supplies...I saw some good deals yesterday.
