I can't control myself friends.
I try to curb my school spending. But then I don't. Because it's more fun to buy stuff than to pine away over it. I may need an intervention.
The other day I went to Michael's to get ONE THING. Before I left for the store I wrote this on my hand:
I got this DVD set on Amazon for a steal. I have most of the episodes downloaded from Discovery Education, but I decided it would be a good idea to own the DVDs too. That way I could delete the digital files to free up some storage space, and I feel like I should pay for it considering how often I use these videos. This is the complete season, with EVERY episode ever made. I got it for $25, but now its $42.
I also got these on Amazon. I haven't purchased any professional development books in years so I figured I was way over due. I wasn't going to buy the WBT book, since you can find pretty much anything you need online for free, but I decided it would be a good idea to have the information handy for myself.
I got these next few items from Vista Print. There was a great Groupon not to long ago that gave you $70 worth of product for only $17. How could I pass that up???
Postcards. I designed these so I could use them anytime, not just to welcome students at the beginning of the school year. I've already sent a few to former students.
I also got a custom stamp made.
Really good stuff from Really Good Stuff.
I found a coupon for $50 off $200 and used that as an excuse to buy some things I've had on my wishlist for a while. I love these binder holders for individual book bins and I needed a classroom mailbox because my new school doesn't provide one like my old school did.
There's tons more buried away in my garage but I don't plan to come to terms with that unnecessary spending until I unpack my boxes in my new room. It will take me that long to come up with a good rationalization anyway.
