I love Target as much as the next teacher, but sometimes Walmart does not get the credit it deserves. I found some incredible deals when I went shopping today, and I wanted to share!
Seriously, I’m loving the mint green theme Walmart has going on this year!
The first thing I found were these mainstay latch lid boxes. Let me start by saying I LOVE Sterlite (clearly, majority of my purchases were Sterlite brand) but I know that sometimes we need cheaper options. The mainstay bins were roughly $3.50 in store, which was $1.50 less then Sterlite. They seemed to be sturdy and will be perfect for sensory bins.
I also got rainbow book bins similar to these. The ones I found in the store were about $10 for a set of 5. I will be using these to organize file folders on my bookshelf.
I love these Sterlite shoe boxes with the colorful lids. I found these value packs of 10 for $7.98 at my Walmart! Cheaper than anywhere else I saw. I will be using these to set up my new work task system, store task cards, hold toys and more. In fact, I might go buy some more tomorrow!
I bought one of these mini crates from Sterlite because it was cute and cheap (under $1). I ended up loving it and getting 2 more. I grabbed 4 additional mini crates today. I got rid of my teacher desk so these will be perfect for storing supplies on a table in the back of my classroom.
Don’t be afraid to shop around! Pinterest pretty classroom are fun to look at, but it’s okay to save money and get other materials. Whatever helps you stay organized!
