School Supply Deals for the Week of August 11 - Tales from Outside the Classroom

School Supply Deals for the Week of August 11

My meltdowns for this week…..walking into my classroom today to find that they tore down my bulletin boards while changing an outlet below it.  Makes no sense to me.  I may or may not have shed a few tears and I most certainly did some whining.  It was the only thing that I had actually gotten completed.  And it’s gone.  Meltdown #2 was realizing that I’ve misplaced a bunch of stuff.  So far I can’t find my chalkboard paint, my fishing line, and my new hot glue gun that I bought.  Seriously, I bought them at different times and different stores.  And, unless I was having some crazy dreams, I know I bought them.  So, even though I declared my shopping done for now, I’m heading back to the store.  Blah!

Here’s this week’s deals.  I hope you have some better luck than I have had.

  • My heart broke a bit for you when I read that they tore down your bulletin boards!! I cannot even begin to imagine! That really stinks!

  • So sorry about your week. 🙁 Just wanted to let you know that at Office Depot they will let teachers that have their rewards card 40 folders at a time!!!! 🙂 I walked in and out a few times in a row this week AND gave my girls each their own 10. 🙂 I needed 160ish folders. I'm a few shy so we will head there again tomorrow! 🙂 Also… last year I think Office Max price matched.
