My kids start school this week!! Any one else starting this week?? Now that the backpacks are purchased and new clothes are ready, don’t forget those fabulous teachers who will be teaching and helping your children for the next 9 months. Teacher gifts for the first day of school have become a tradition around here. Last year we gave them highlighters with a cute tag and the year before we made these cute pencil cans. Or these gumball pencil tubes are a fun idea too!
This year for our teacher gifts, I headed to my local Office Depot to pick up some supplies for our teacher gifts. If you’ve read any of my other posts on this here blog, you’ll know that I LOVE the Office Depot that’s just a few minutes from my house. I get all my printing done there and I’m a huge fan of their Small Business Program and the Office Depot Rewards Program, where you earn points for purchases and copy/print services that you use. On this shopping trip, I picked up some of my favorite Sharpies, mechanical pencils for my son, some cool new EXPO Window markers and a few goodies for myself Almost everything I bought was on sale for great prices, too!
This week at Office Depot/Office Max, save $5 Off your purchase of $20 or more on Select Newell Rubbermaid Brands (PaperMate, Expo Neon Window Markers, Sharpie, Uni-Ball, & Mr. Sketch) AND all Sharpie singles are $.25 (while supplies last) – you know I’ll be stocking up on those Sharpies because I love them so!
With all the new names to learn and supplies that are used in the classroom, I thought teachers could use a little help keeping everything organized. So I made some printable labels, cut them out and had them laminated at my local Office Depot. SAVINGS ALERT: There’s a coupon in the newspaper this week for 40% off laminating services in the copy/print center – that’s awesome!
I decided to have the tags laminated so that teachers (or you at home!) could re-use the labels in the future. Use the EXPO Window markers I bought, or any other form of Dry-Erase marker to easily wipe and re-write.
Bundle your laminated labels together with a fun binder clip and wrap the markers and labels with a cute bow.
Add our colorful printable tag and you’re all set to start the year off “bright”!
