Five for Friday

I am linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her Five for Friday linky. I know that I am posting twice (and that breaks the teacher bloggy rules Winking smile) but this is after all, a Friday linky!
Let’s see…
1. I am on a no buying (except for groceries) spree! I cleaned out my closet and realized that I truly do not need any more clothes.  I haven’t even attempted to organize my craft room/office, but I really am set for oh, about 100 years with all types of crafty supplies.  AND I have way too many d├ęcor items – I don’t have space in my tiny little house for them!
2. I am anxiously awaiting my very last purchase before the new year!  I ordered some items from Maurices and a bunch of jewelry from Forever 21 and am dying to get the packages in the mail.  I hear about all these great things that people find there, but the store just drives me crazy.  I can never find anything and it always makes me dizzy when I walk in there.
3. I am in the middle of changing my classroom around for about the millionth time!  I am one of those teachers who just can’t feel comfortable in my classroom until I find the perfect arrangement. I have a long, narrow room and just find it hard to arrange everything. II am still loving the Dots on Turquoise scheme I went with this year.
4. I have yet to take down my Christmas tree. We always take a picture in front of the tree and it takes forever for us to get around to it.
5. I have resolved to use up things I have before buying more  I have lots of make-up, skincare products, and general household items that are half full and I haven’t/don’t use them or multiples of items.  I have so many bottles of scented lotion and don’t want to throw them out.  How many eyeliners does one person need?  How about blushes? Really?
Anyway, those are a few random things that popped into my mind!


  1. I am trying to buy less too! It's one of my resolutions for this year!!

    Thanks for linking up with me! come back next week too :o)

    Happy 2013!

  2. I'm so glad you found me! I love reading other teachers' blogs!

    I'm on a no-buying spree, as well. Solidarity in our thriftiness! :)
    (We for real need a support group...)

  3. I am in a whole nesting phase but it is more like classroom focus so I been reorganizing my classroom students are like...teacher you keep moving things. hahaha Good luck!
