This linky party is devoted to the die-hard teacher-shoppers. The ones who leave the house on supposed "normal" shopping trips. You know, food for the family, basic supplies for the household.
But we all know our secret. We are teacher-shoppers. And we represent a unique group of consumers.
Only the truly skilled (i.e. teachers) can achieve our form of shopping. It involves distracting loved ones ("do you want to check out the ___ section while I look here?"). It involves (at-times) embarrassing situations, especially for family members ("They don't have 25 of them!" or "It doesn't come in blue!!"). You know what I mean. I hope.
Because you are the ones who manage to find treasured items for your classrooms in the cheapest stores in your town. You are the ones brave enough to dig through an entire bin of items to be sure the one thing you are looking for is not hidden at the bottom. You are the ones flagging down tired employees, imploring them to check the stock out back. You cannot be stopped. You are a force to be reckoned with. No typical shopper is safe in your path.
This linky party is in honor of all of you bold shoppers. We must come together to share our loot. Whether they are items to decorate your classroom, supplies for your students, new books for your classroom library, that undeniably cute and necessary stuff from the cheap bins in Target--you must share it here!
