Fabulous Find & Newbie Blogger Hop!

First off I could not be more excited about the deal I got this week! I was browsing Michaels weekly ad online and found this!

It was on sale for $37.99 and I found a 25% off your entire purchase including sale items! That rarely happens at Michael's! I ended up getting this for less than $30! Score! 

Does anyone else use this storage in their classroom? Would you recommend getting a second? Thanks! 

Also, I found this fun linky! I still feel like a newbie so I figured I would join!

1. What state are you in? Arizona!
2. Your current teaching position? 1st grade!
3. Your teaching experience? This will be my first year teaching! I did my methods and student teaching in 1st!
4. When you started blogging? April 2012
5. Share a blogging tip/blogging resource. I would definitely recommend hosting giveaways with rafflecopter! They make it so easy!

Head on over to see who else is new to the blogging world at Grade Three is the Place for Me!


  1. I almost bought that! I may go back to Michaels on my way back from the gym today!!!! What are you planning on using it for? I have an old plastic drawer set that I use for storing random things I need while teaching- it sits close to wear I teach from, but it is getting all bent out of snap... I think this will be better....Thanks for sharing and congrats on your first year teaching!!! My first year was my FAVORITE year.

  3. I have a small plastic 3 drawer thingy that I use for odds and ends. I also have 2 big and 1 small file cabinets that I don't really use but are filled with junk. My plan is to start getting rid of the junk and get rid of one of the file cabinets. We will see=)

  10. I saw that cart yesterday! I was so tempted, but I didn't have the 25% off coupon. I definitely would have bought it if I had!! Lucky you!! :)

  13. Congrats on your teaching job. I remember what it felt like to finally be teaching even if it was 2 years ago. Last year I bought the rainbow organizer and did not use it for what I wanted to because I ran out of time. This year I want to use it for my ABC/Word Work station and maybe even label one drawer for each of my reading groups so that they will only do what is in their drawer first before going on to other things in the cart. I have seen others use it for their guided reading groups/activities. You can make it so that the drawers are moveable stations that they can take with them anywhere in your room, that was another idea I found this year.
    I have enjoyed my "stay" at your blog. Stop by mine and enter the Thirty-One giveaway ending today at 11pm. Good luck.

  18. Ahahaha that was my friday find too!!! I am soooo excited for this cart. I have another one like it, but instead of tall, its long. 5 drawers x 5 drawers. I found it at a garage sale and couldn't love it more. Can't wait to get this bad boy up in my room now too. Not sure what I'll do with it yet... but I'm sure something! I was thinking of housing my lessons for the week. What are you going to do with it?
