Fridays are Fabulous!

Yeah another Friday!!!
Except that I should be saving my money for vacation, but no worries I got good deals!

Recently The Christmas Tree Shops opened up a store within 50 miles of me. The closest one before this one was approximately 500 miles or so away. So 50 miles is a little more convenient. Also near this fabulous store is a Lakeshore Learning. So my teaching buddy suggested we go visit them on Wednesday.

We went to Lakeshore first...yeah 20% off, plus 70% off's my good finds:

Can you see the price tag on those circles calendar pieces? $0.99...and the cute bag was a text then FREE!!!...I also picked up....

This cute Vocabulary display (I'm going to use it for more than just one word)

And of course some BEE related goodies....I left Lakeshore and only spent $21...I also picked up two BEE themed character education books too, I just didn't take pictures of them! (Maybe I should mention what my teaching buddy spent, but if her hubby sees this blog, she'd kill me!)

Our next stop to shop was  The Christmas Tree it's not a Christmas store, per say, it's a seasonal menagerie and cheap prices. I've been on a Pinterest kick these past few weeks and I have found the cutest ways to de-clutter your desk. Use a cookbook stand for your lesson plan binder, so it's off the desk and gives you some room...

Can you see the price? Yep only $4.99...then I found these:

Only $1.99 each, I am going to make the dry erase "to do" boards, that are all over Pinterest right now..yellow and black for my BEE Theme! Maybe that will be my Monday Made it??? many things to get done before I leave next Tuesday...look what I found at Target's dollar spot too...

Too cute to resist!

Well have fun shopping this week-end, I think I am done...need to start making things now!



  1. Thanks for NOT ratting me out:) He may see your blog if I leave it up on the screen... I sorted through that mess and made a small pile of returns and yet another list of things I "forgot" so (hopefully) I break even!

    I do love the cook book stand! I have one at home and since I don't cook, I could just use that:)

    1. I too have a cookbook stand at home, I cook but don't use ot for that, it is holding up a very nice souveneir! When are you going back?

    2. I think Monday. Do you need anything?

  2. I am SOOO going to the Christmas Tree Store when I get back home. Those finds are awesome. Thanks so much for linking up!
