If I Had A Million Dollars….
Well, let’s be real. If I had a million dollars, I’d move to Tahiti or buy out the shoe department at Barneys…
Anyhow, if I had a million dollars and decided to stay in the classroom, this is what I would spend it on- fabulous school supplies to make me feel chic amid all the mouse poo. Clearly all this talk of Back To School shopping has gone to my brain!
Am I the only one who believes that fancy school supplies are like porn for nerds like us?
Here are some of my current too-pricey-for-the-classroom-when-I-have-to-buy-freaking-pencils-for-my-students favorites…all of these images are brought to you by the fabulous peeps over at See Jane Work. I just love a virtual shopping spree! (Even if it is imaginary.)
Clearly, I will need one of these lovelies to plan out my time. I might keep this as a To Do List/Everything Else calendar and use it in conjunction with my planner – ‘cuz you know those little squares are never enough space!
Because I am
anal retentive an organizational freak a dedicated teacher, I’ll need another outlet for my incessant list making. I am all about these….decisions, decisions.
Of course, because teaching requires a great amount of “flexibility,” I will need some post it notes to help me juggle lessons that must be moved around due to all the
freaking interruptions to our day *cough cough* supremely important goings on. Feast your eyes on these babies:
And I’ll need a vessel to store all my fabulous pens, pencils and Sharpies. This one caught my eye:
How about something gorgeous to open up all those oh-so-important memos?
Everyone needs a little shiny in their day, no?
SPEAKING of shiny, I was totally digging these desk accessories too…
But if I was in a more colorful mood, or needed a pick me up, these super cheerful guys would totally do the trick:
Can’t forget about paperclips….how I love me some paperclips!
At the end of a long day, how wonderful would it feel to slip our mountain of paperwork into these?
Those portfolios are real leath-ah, friends! Mmmmmmm…..I think it would make it a little easier to roll my eyes at the asshats who insist on making comments such as, “Must be nice to be done for the day at 3:00.” Or, I could just smack them with my fabulous leath-ah folio…
I hope these images made you smile. You know what? It’s the beginning of the school year – you deserve something fabulous! Go nuts and buy yourself something pretty to make all the correcting, all the list making, all the filing, all the paperwork, all the notes home (holy crap, I’m tired already) a little bit more fun.
