Sprucing Up Your Space for Cheap!

I'm back to share some more fun things I created with my dollar finds!

I found these adorable magnetic containers and the magnetic board on two different occasions! I found the little containers first and of course had to have them because they're my colors ;) And when I found the magnetic board I was even more excited because I could use it to hold my magnetic containers AND it was already in pink and green! Score!

All I had to do was personalize the board with some cute stickers and voila!

I put some pink paperclips in one. Now I just gotta figure out what to put in the other!

But I think I might do this!
{thank you Pinterest!}


  1. You always find the best buys at the Dollar Stores! I was just there and apparently didn't see those. Great idea to use them for those box tops!

  2. I am SOOO digging that Box Top idea!! LOVE!

  3. Cute! I got the magnetic boards and attacked them with tape to make ten frames to use for number talks (check out my blog for that post, it was my my first Monday Made It topic). It's fun to see many different uses for these great, cheap finds!

  8. What dollar store do you go to? I went to the "Dollar Tree" looking for the foam cubes to make the dice and didn't see them anywhere. Maybe different regions have different products. But I'm still curious to know what store you visit, because you find the best stuff! :)

  9. Love your box top holder. I need to do this. My box tops are all over the place.
    Thanks for sharing

  10. I saw that today at Target but didn't get it - Man!!! I am kicking myself! :)

  12. So the other day we were on our way to Target and my 2 year old (Sophia) yells, "Yay! Target!!" I thought of you:)

  13. I saw those yesterday but didn't know what I could do with them. Now I do! I'm going back to Target!

  15. I had to have the same little magnet holders. HAD.TO.HAVE.THEM. Not sure what I'm using them for yet---was thinking a center storage for letters? I dunno? Box tops is a great idea!

  16. I adore your blog. I'm in a jam and I'm wondering if you can help. I saw a great post, and I thought it was your blog, but I can't seem to find it....

    It was a post of a teacher with her yearly lesson plan outline by theme and general ideas of what she was going to be doing for the year. Seemed like she was either Kindergarten or First Grade. Do you remember a post like that or a linky party like that?

    I'd love it if you did... just comment back if you know where to guide me to! Thanks.

  17. What I love about your article is that it is unique and loaded with substance which really captivates me. Some of the blogs today are not very informative and that is why site visitors will not read the full post. But yours was different. I'd like to thank my friend also for referring your blog to me. Hope to see more of this. Keep it up!
