Lovin' Amazon Prime!


Amazon Prime Day has come and gone, and I'm anxiously awaiting my finds to arrive on my doorstep!  Okay, so maybe only one out of the four things I ordered was on sale.  And it had nothing to do with school stuff.  So what!?!  I still saved around $30 on my purchase, and that will always be just fine by me!

So what did I find that I just COULD. NOT. live without???  I've been eyeing this pencil sharpener for literally years.  But I'm such a penny-pincher when it comes to replacing something that still works.  My dinky little electronic sharpener has been doing the death rattle for months, but it could probably stick it out for a couple more.  However, it's the beginning of the year, and my classroom will soon be all clean and shiny.  Who wants a banged-up old sharpener sullying the absolute freshness that is my August classroom?  Yes, said freshness will last approximately seventeen seconds into the first day of school.  But I will cherish it in the weeks before school starts, and that grumpy old sharpener just will not do!


SO excited about my new sharpener!  Is this normal?

Let's see, I also got these RAD stools because I'm going to give flexible seating a go.  And shhhhh...don't tell my daughters, but I'm totally stealing the bean bag chairs that Santa brought them a couple of years ago.  Seriously.  Check out where they live now.  The girls won't even miss them.  Right??? Right.  (I fear there will be an update on this in the very near future.)

I love the sleek look!  I hope they are STURDY.  You get it.

She will soon be able to open BOTH of her closet doors!  Selling point???

There it is, under that pile of (hopefully) clean clothes.  Clearly, her pile of clothes gets a TON of use out of the chair.

I got two sets of these FANTASTIC lime green write-on dots for my math and reading tables.  I'm a little iffy on them because I've always covered my tables with fun fabric.  It usually lasts several years before I have to replace it, but last year, my little darlings picked and Picked and PiCKeD and PICKED until they shredded parts of it.  Rather than lay on my bad back underneath those tables to try to fix the damage, I decided to rip those suckers right off, and try something new.  I'm a little nervous, because, well..........you know how much teachers like change.

I hope they are kid-proof!

Finally, I ordered some Chaco's.  They are totally cute, and they were the only item in my basket that was discounted on Prime Day (HELLO 30%!!!  They were practically screaming, "BUY ME!!!").  I TOTALLY rationalized the purchase after my orthopedist told me I needed to be wearing more supportive shoes because my knees are angry at me.  Clearly, he is unaware that it is summer and flip flops are the National Shoe of Summer.  He is also unaware that I am absolutely UNPREPARED to be told that I need to start wearing more supportive shoes.  In honor of that nasty statement, I also rationalized the purchase of a pair of Birkenstocks.  Go ahead.  Judge me.  But I'll totally be there for you when you get told that you need to start wearing support hose.  Promise.

So comfortable!
Okay, it's only mid-July so I'll shut up now and go back to the pool in my NEW CHACO'S, thank you very much, Dr. Navarro.  But before I go, here's a gift for you in honor of the (belated) Amazon Prime Day!  Head on over to my TPT store and get some FREE Meet-the-Teacher goodies!  They'll only be free for the next 24 hours, so go NOW!!!  And don't forget to follow me while you're there, so you'll be updated on discounted and FREE new products when they are posted!  I also offer free and discounted goodies RIGHT HERE, so go ahead and click on that FOLLOW tab!  You know you want to!
