I always tell myself that I need to stay out of my local thrift shop. I realize I spend money there, but I always end up getting such good deals. I guess the same is true for the Dollar Tree!
I found these baskets at the Dollar Tree today. Perfect in color, I only needed 3 but I bought 6 of course (in case of breaking in the future...lol).
Another great find at the Dollar Tree was this word-find book. Each page has an historical event and arond the box of letters there is a paragraph explaining something about that event. All of the words in the word-find are written inside that paragraph in all capital letters. I bought this for or Social Studies teacher. It's great!
At my thrift store, I got two great Webster dictionaries for $1.25 each. I plan to keep collecting them because my middle schoolers need a bigger dictionary than the kind I bought at the dollar store in years past.
Oh, and I also found two kitchen stools that match perfectly to our butcher block counter tops for jst $25 each (of course, I had a coupon).
Perhaps someday my kitchen will be finished and I'll post a picture of that online. For now, I cannot let anyone see what it looks like, since it's so embarassing.
