Best Sharpener Ever

There is another giveaway for the "best sharpener ever!"  I really want one of these!  If you would like to have a chance at winning one of these, go visit Teaching Joys. Good luck! :)

P.S. You can also go to the Classroom Friendly Supplies website and enter a separate giveaway!

As of right now, I don't have any fabulous finds to share this week.  I'm about to visit a consignment shop that was mentioned yesterday by Cyndi at Lacy's Letters.  Hopefully, I'll have some luck! :)

The consignment shop "Once Upon a Child" was a success!  They had a ton of books, but I walked out with 16 (if I counted correctly).  All of these books were in GREAT shape.  I spent $20 which I don't think is bad.  Hopefully, they're books the kiddos will read!  I know Black Beauty is a classic, but I read it when I was in 6th grade and fell in love with the book.  I finally found a copy that had the great color illustrations! :)
Last fall, I bought this stamp off of Etsy.  I like the look of stamping my name in books instead of writing it or putting sticker labels inside.  I can't remember, but I don't think it was too expensive.

I haven't purchased anything knew but I really wanted to join Kristen's July Summer Shopping Linky Party, so I'm going to reiterate some of my favorite purchases in July! :) 

(You can click on the pictures to go to the blog entry to read more!)

My #1 favorite purchase is my Clemson rocker!!  Expensive but worth it! :)
My favorite purchase in the 2nd picture is my chevron rug from Big Lots! - $16!!!

I got these flower from Michael's.  It will be nice to have bright, fake flowers all year!
My #2 favorite purchase is this Scotch Laminator!!  It has been so incredibly handy!

I got this cart from Michael's on super sale! $28
The buttons I found at the Dollar Spot and I personalized them to be Ron Clark test buttons.

My last favorite purchase is an Ikea Magazine rack that I painted and will use to turn in homework! :)
