August Currently

Wow... August... where has this year gone?!? I'm linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for my August Currently!

B2S Must Haves:
1. Costco Photo Center - For most of my classroom designs (banners, schedule signs, teacher binder dividers) I use my scrapbooking software to make it look pretty! Because colored ink is so expensive, for most of my colored printing, I use Costco Photo Center. I like how inexpensive their printing is and the photo paper is a little more substantial than printer paper. So, needless to say, I've spent a lot of time uploading and picking up my things from Costco this summer!

2. Lamination - After I print from Costco, I still have to laminate! I'm waiting for someone at my school to cut me off... We have a wonderful aide who has been coming in periodically throughout the summer to do our copy room work, so I haven't been the one doing my own lamination. Hopefully she's not keeping track... ;o)

3. To-do lists & my planner - I'm obsessed (OBSESSED) with making lists and crossing things off! I'll add things to my list after I've already completed them, just so I can cross them off!! Pathetic... I know... But I've relied heavily on making my To-do Lists in my new planner. I have sooo much to get done by next week that I would be lost without it!

Now it's time for me to tackle that To-Do List...


  1. I am addicted to laminating! It's pretty costly, though. We aren't really allowed to use laminating at my school :( (boo!) I linked up with Farley too!!

  2. I love laminating!!! It must be a teacher thing!!! The cutting out part not so much, but I love the end products!!! We aren't allowed to laminate our own things at school we have to have a PTA member laminate for us then they also cut things out so I'm not complaining!!! I also linked up with Farley!!!


  3. I agree about wanting to go back but need a little more time! I really want to look into a Cameo too! Everyone is talking about them!!

  4. I love laminating too! I just picked up 200 envelopes today at Sams Club. And of course--needed printer cartridges so I would have things to laminate!

  5. One more laminating addict!! Costco is a great idea! I would hate to see what I actually spend in ink!!! Do you love your MAC Pro? I'm a bit obsessed with mine!!

    Peace, Love, and First Grade
