Dollar Spot and Dollar Tree Tuesdays!

If you're like me, getting things for $1 is the best thing in the world {maybe even more fun than using coupons...maybe...}. Especially on a teacher's budget! And especially if you are supplying your classroom with goods that come out of your own pocket! So finding a deal at the Target Dollar Spot, or the Dollar Tree is like striking gold!

I love reading about what you guys find for $1! But my most favorite thing is getting ideas from you guys about how to use the amazing finds! I'm pretty good at finding the dollar stuff, but I don't always know what to do with it! For example:

I bought this adorable pinwheel at Target yesterday and that was that. 


I really didn't think I could use it other than getting joy from looking at it.

Then I see Heidi's post and her amazing spinner idea! I tell you!

So I thought it would be fun to share our deals and finds! And I only chose Tuesdays because it sounded good with Dollar Tree ;)

Believe it or not, I try not to shop at the Dollar Tree and Target Dollar Spot every week {try is the underlined word in that sentence} so I might not have a post to go along with the linky party every week. But you can still see the cute ideas that other people post! Or, if you're like me, you can show us what you got and we'll help you figure out what to do with it! And it doesn't have to just be teacher stuff either!

Check back on Tuesday for the link!

  1. Did you see this idea? http://fun-in-first.blogspot.com/2011/03/pinwheels.html

    I'm planning on making one of those. I also made a "blends" spinner - with "gr" in the middle and then endings on each flower petal. The kids spin it to make different words and record them on a sheet, then draw a picture of the word. They loved it yesterday!
