Currently and Fabulous Find Friday

I'm linking up to 2 linky parties I really want to join with, even if that means I will be posting twice in a day.  You may not hear from me tomorrow...

 Oh' Boy Fourth Grade is hosting her August Currently:
 The 3 top things that I LOVED this summer were the Penny Deals at my favorite office supply stores - I went to so many different Staples, Office Max, and Office Depots to pick up their cheap supplies.  I don't know if I really needed a million portfolios, but I know I will use every single thing this coming year.  

I also picked up a personal laminator this summer.  I actually bought 3 of them.  The first one came from Target - but then I couldn't justify spending $30 and having to buy laminating sheets separately.  The 2nd one came from Costco for $20, and it came with 100 laminating sheets... but then I talked myself out of needing it... until I decided that I really did need it - so I bought it again.  Then my hubby found laminating sheets on Amazon for cheap 100 sheets for $10.  Couldn't beat that, just hoping they are great!  

I love my paper cutter - and my new circle cutter.  They sure beat having to use scissors... you know?  

Rule of 3... I love the Rule of 3...

I'm also linking up with Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B to share my most favorite find of the week.  


 Let me tell you a little back story of the ink - I dropped my older boys and husband off at the movies, then littlest boy and myself were on our way to meet my sister and go shopping... only I was running a little early so decided to stop in to the Office Depot to see their deals.  These were on the clearance rack - originally $15-20 a box - down to $4 each!!!!!!!!  Can I tell you how excited I was?!?  I mean, what is the chance that you actually find ink to your printer on clearance for so cheap.  I immediately called my husband, who thankfully hadn't turned off his cell phone yet in the theatre, and he made me check for expiration dates, etc... no expiration dates at all - and I will totally use all of this before it goes bad!  I have decided that I LOVE printing in color, and now I'm not going to give myself a guilt trip about using up the ink.
  This was my most favorite find of the week!

Hope you had a great week and will have a great weekend!  Check out my classroom pictures in the post directly below this one - I've been busy and I'm so happy with the results!

  2. I love Penny Deals and my circle cutter, too! Now going to check our your classroom pictures...

    1. Aren't they wonderful? This weekend is Teacher Appreciation at Office Depot - and portfolios are 1 cent each - AND they still give teachers a 30 limit on them. I just wish they were closer...

  3. Ohh! A paper cutter! I forgot about this when I was making the long list of things I want!
    I just started following your blog!

  4. I have talked myself out a personal laminator all summer. I have now decided it is time to just get it but I plan on using my bonus points for Scholastic to get mine.

    1. I love my bonus points from Scholastic too! Happy shopping!

  5. Omg! I am soo jealous of your ink find!! I forgot about the circle cutter, I need one of those too!! I bought the Costco laminator too, but I need to find the deal on those sheets for $10!!!

    1. Here is the link - but the price is now at $11 (instead of the $10 that we got a couple of days ago.) - Still a deal since supposedly they are down from $41.
