“Key Buys” and a blog award nomination!

My mom always called good deals that she was able to take advantage of key buys.  So, I’ve taken part in the TpT sale, and did not forget to use the coupon code!  (I tend to be bad with details, and cry later!)  I’m going to call them all key buys, because by doing so it will counteract the terrible guilt I feel at going so crazy!!! I waited and waited and just lost all control today!  Sigh...
Knowing I’m teaching 1st and 2nd grade next year has me agonizing over every purchase.  I want to get the most bang for my buck. 
Here are some of my key buys that I’ve been drooling over for a while:
The 3 AM Teacher’s lovely graphic sets:
Cara Carroll Creations:

Amy Lemons stuff (super excited!!!)
The Teacher Wife:
And finally one I almost forgot, but then didn’t (sorry bank account!)  But who can resist this author study?  HONESTLY!

And like some other bloggers I’ve noticed today, I received an email that informed me I’ve been nominated for the “Most Fascinating Blog of 2012 Award”.  I’m really excited that my blog was noticed outside of my blog circle.  The post that warranted the attention is, my clutter linky x2, which is a bit ironic considering I’ve pretty much failed to live up to my plan.  PLEASE keep in mind that I’m moving classrooms and have just put off the organization until my stuff is moved to the next classroom, PERFECTLY REASONABLE!

AT some point there is voting for the blogs nominated – I’m not entirely sure.  I will keep you posted!

  3. The blog is nice for reading. The nomination information and the blog post is interesting. The words is understandable. The online journalism degree helps for college students can making the college journals and getting the tips for making.
