Bargain Shopping for Math

So I was out yesterday on a mission to find math manipulatives.  I wanted button, sorting trays and bingo markers.  I found all but the bingo markers.  My Dollar Store just never has anything good.

My first stop was to Joann's.  They have all their buttons at 50% off right now, so I bought 3 packs.

My next stop was the Dollar Store.  There I found these trays and some cool dice.

With summer vacation in full swing- I seem to have a lot of time on my hands to get creative and to shop.  Just wish I could find those Bingo Markers- I could order them on-line from the Dollar Store, but do I really want 72- probably not.

I am a bargain shopper, Here are some places to look, Walmart, Oriental Trading, Ebay, Amazon...let us know if you can't find any I will check my DT if all else fails and mail you them....If you do the online route always Google the store for coupon codes!

What do you use the trays for?

Kim- I use the trays for for sorting. I have a few older ones that have deeper wells I think these will be easier for the kids to sort through littler items.

Leea- thanks for the other store reminders.

I am queen of the coupons and always search for codes before I buy.

I just bought the dice at Dollar Tree too. I bought bunches of them. You can get the bingo markers at Amazon. (I shop there lots!) Some of the daubers have shapes too!!
