Treasures from the Dollar BIn!

So here's my take...

You know you are ready for the next school year when you get a HUGE adrenal rush from the dollar bin! I hit Target yesterday and came away with a truck load of awesomeness!!! 

I plan on redecorating my classroom this year with colors from my blog. I couldn't believe my luck when I hobbled over to the dollar bins (thank goodness those are in the front of the store!)

Today I decided to create recycle bins inspired by a pin I found this past week from 

I used the pink/blue bins above and then I made the "got paper?" signs. I absolutely love the end result! I only hope it inspires my kiddos to make sure to keep paper off the floor!!!

I can't wait to create more things from the treasures I bought yesterday! It amazes me how a good shopping trip can put me in the back to school mood!

I hope you find some treasures in the dollar bins this summer too! 

Enjoy the Recycle Bin Signs.

I love the idea of the little recycling bins! I have a classroom one, but I'd love to make a little one for each table to minimize getting out of their seats during cutting activities.

I downloaded your labels, thanks! =)

Love the signs! You know I'm a polka dot addict, and I just bought mini cans for my groups at Target! Looks like great minds think alike!

LOVE your $1 bin finds! I just raided Target's $1 section for more pocket charts! My kids almost have to drag me out of there! :-)

SOOO cute!! I can't believe all the amazing things you found at Target!! That is awesome!!!! I love the recycling bins and I love the blue and pink for classroom colors!!! I have a problem in that I can't pick just two (or even three) colors!! I love them all! Even for my wedding we had a bunch of different colors!! haha I love all the classrooms I'm seeing with two or three main colors though, so I may have to try harder! :)
