Thrifty Finds and a Giveaway {Stephanie from The Learning Chambers}




I love finding new things for my classroom and of course I try to save money as much as I can.  My favorite places to find thrifty things for my classroom are Dollar Tree, Target Dollar Spot, and Craig's List.  I really do love finding good deals!  What teacher doesn't?!?!

My all time favorite thrifty find has been my school rocking chair.  It was actually a hand me down from my grandma but it needed some love to match my classroom decor.


My husband tightened all of the screws and then I decided to go with a teal spray paint.  We covered it with two coats of spray paint and let it dry over-night.



I can sew a little but recovering the cushions was a little out of my sewing comfort zone, especially since the cushions were oddly shaped, so I found this patio chair cushion at Garden Ridge (now At Home) for just $5!  I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out.

I loved the spray paint color so much, that I decided to spray paint my metal big book tub too.


I know that everyone is just loving the Target Dollar Spot right now, so I wanted to share my latest finds.  One of the things on my summer to-do list was to re-label my math and supply tubs.  I found these chalkboard labels for just a $1.  I have so many ideas for these chalkboard labels.


My last Target Dollar Spot find is this awesome clip strip.  My kids are always forgetting their names on their papers, and I thought it would be a great place to hang no name work to be claimed.




I was thinking they would also be great to display student work in my classroom.  Oh the possibilities!  I'm in love with this clip strip.

I've been super blessed to be a part of the Elementary Entourage and even more blessed lately because our family is growing!  These teachers are super talented and I'm looking forward to reading their posts.


To celebrate that our family is growing, we are having this awesome giveaway.


Good luck friends!
