I am SO excited about teaching 7th and 8th grades next year. I have all kinds of ideas for my classroom. So, I've been out shopping, and today I went to get a ___________ which I found for FREE on Craigslist! Score #1. I will fill in the blank later, when I do a post on the ___________ . I cannot do it now because it is a surprise for my new students and I have discovered that some of them read this.
So, for now, it stays a secret. (If anyone wants to guess and gets it right, I will personally go to Ken's Joys for you and buy you anything you want from there, within reason of course.)
Anyway, my son and I went to get the free __________ and on the way I saw the above sign. Score # 2. Below is the one I found about two days ago. Perhaps there is an impending epidemic?
And of course, since it was Saturday, I stopped at every garage sale I drove past and snagged these two amazing Mission arts and crafts (his favorite style) chairs for hubby. Score #3. He was happy!
And yesterday I got this entire bin of brand-new math manipulatives for $5, and a handful of ex-library books for 75
cents each. Yay for summer. Yay for thrift stores, garage sales,
and free _________s.
