    spending woes...lol.

    Like they say, ya gotta laugh to keep from crying...lol. ;)

    Last year, I had two classrooms...which I loved, but buying materials for two classrooms, and decorations, so the place would look nice, was a nightmare. I didn't want to have to haul all of my office supply items from place to place, so I had to buy for two classrooms.
    This year, thankfully, I'll be at one school all day, everyday...so I have already spent...a grand total of....$30 to completely decorate my room(I'm doing a Hollywood theme)...and another $35 for organization things from the Dollar tree, Target $1 section... cubbies, and things to make my life at school more organized.folders, ..afterall...I will be teaching 44 sections of music this fall...so I need all the organization I can get. AND...I will be re-using things from last year that I can, so that will save me some money right there.
    AND...I spent about $20 today on things that my classroom will need, stapler, three-hole punch (this is the first year I've ever had one), letter trays (Target had a 2 pack for $1.87), magazine file storage, and things of that nature.

    So, I will probably be getting a couple more items, like an inexpensive lamp, (I might just bring one I already have from home to save money, though...since it's black), but other than that, I've spent about all I plan on spending to start off the year....so far my total is about $85. This has been a shopping on a strict budget summer for me, so I think I did pretty well, considering all the cool finds I got this summer, that I know I will need in my room this fall.
