So I went to Target to buy a vacuum...

...and I spent over $40 in the dollar section.  LOL

I did buy the vacuum.  I stay up super late in the summer and recently saw an infomercial for the Hoover Windtunnel Air and fell in infomercial love.  We have a Hoover Floormate hardwood floor cleaner that we love, so I figured it was worth a try.  With friends coming to stay this weekend, I think I'll be cleaning tomorrow. 

Anyway, got some awesome stuff in the dollar section at Target.  I usually try to avoid that area because I end up getting stuff I have no use for.  Here is a photo of the loot:

Purple pocket charts!  I have them in lime green and turquoise from years past, but I prefer stuff that isn't primary colored.  I got two packs of the puzzle border for our Autistic support teacher.  My 7th graders read two novels that center around Autism and end up volunteering in her room during centers.  I had one student ask me how many years of college are required to become an Autistic Support Teacher.  :-D 

The key chain is for my classroom key and the master key to the lockers on our floor.  I got the magnetic container for our refrigerator as a place to store our BoxTops for Education.  Finally, I SCORED with the dry erase pouches.  Class size in my district goes up to 34.  My Target had exactly 34 of them, so I knew it was a sign.  Here's a closer pic:

I guess it's a good thing my vacuum rung up at $20 less than it was marked!


  1. I am the same way when it comes to Target Dollar Spot, the Dollar Tree, anyplace that has stuff I can use CHEAP!! I bought out the supply of the dry erase pockets last time I was there. They are a great way to cut down on having to make millions of copies.

  2. Loved your graphic organizers - thank you for sharing them with other teachers. :) Mike
