I have a Serious Problem

 I need to be banned from Target in a serious way--In all actuality I should probably be banned from all stores that cater to teachers.  So any store  that has organizational items, or sells anything that can be mistaken as manipulatives, I should be banned from.  Today I stopped into Target, just to see what they had- the one nearest me, never has anything and the one in the next town seems to always have things I need.  Today they had these boxes-I say HAD because I bought all they had including the ones from the back stock.  I'm using them for my my Math Work Stations they were $3.99 each, the ones they usually have are $4.99 and have lime green handles.  I also stopped in the Dollar section- BIG MISTAKE.  Now I won't show you the cute sweater and tank I bought- hiding that from the hubby too.



 I think they only have these for the Back-to-school Dorm stuff
ETA: Just found them on Line at Target HERE




My Dollar Spot Finds 

Bulletin board stuff
Dry erase boards and markerrs
beads to string (pattern work station)
Dr. Seuss pins (just hope I remember in March)

Oooo I am gonna have to check those out! I love the back to school organizing stuff they have each year. Last year I got the cutest lamp too and I painted it with polka dots! I am really hopping they have the dry erase boards at my target too! Thank you for sharing!

I hit that kind of sale on those containers last year at Target :-) I use those containers to sort my personal books into themes etc. Isn't it great to be organized though?!!

I am the same way about Target! My hubby has just come to expect now that if we visit Target, we always hit the Dollar Spot first. I was just there yesterday, though, and mine didn't have any of their school stuff out yet. I can't wait for that!

I just KNEW this post was going to be about Target! hahaha! Same thing happened to me today! I only bought 4 things, and then ran...ran away as fast as I could!!!!

Seriously, can anyone ever leave Target without spending at least $90.00? That always seems to be what I spend!! I am sure I will be there soon looking for stock for my classroom!!

The dollar section will be the death of me! I always spend way to much there!

Please keep sharing the great finds that you discover in the various stores! Living in a small town with no stores, it is great to hear about sales and great finds so I can head to the nearest city to do some power shopping! HeeHee!

I used to say the only place I could actually NOT get into trouble was a kitchen store...then I did my scrapbook room in all IKEA kitchen ...My dad used to say my mom and I would buy Cow Poop if it was marked sale! LOL....My sister is coming from MD on the 1st and that usually gets me in LOADS of shopping trouble! Thanks for enabling :)

I may have to check out Target tomorrow. . . I wonder if it's worth shipping it all back up, or if I should wait till I get home.

At My Target I found Dr.Seuss erasers,Dr.Seuss markers and Dr.Seuss silly bands.They also had dry erase boards and small dry erase boards that we use to write words or sentences on. All for $1.00 each!

Mrs.S said...

First of all, I am the same way. The bad news is that I live across the street from Target! It's evil. I always tell my husband that they should just direct deposit my paycheck to Target. Thankfully I have a little one that will be here any day now so I haven't ventured over there for fear of spending money. The dollar spot is always a hit during back to school time. Our Target doesn't put that stuff out until late July though. Do you have an IKEA nearby? They are the best for organization!!!

Those bins were EXACTLY what I was looking for to use with MWS! I snapped them up (and there were 10 of them!!). I also got a class set of the dry erase boards. Thanks for sharing!
