Picture Perfect Work....Clips on Sale!

My hubby and I celebrated our fourth anniversary this past weekend.  We've made it a tradition to go away somewhere for a weekend every year.  It's only been four years, but we're four for four so far!  :)

While we were gone, we did some shopping of course!  We went to one of my favorite stores, The Container Store!  If you enjoy organization, this is the place for you.  They have anything and everything.  

We were just walking around dreaming about this wonderful closet they can build for you when we came across the clearance items.  I found these picture hooks on sale.  

 I only bought two packages because I wasn't sure how I could use them. After we left I thought about a place in my classroom where they would be perfect.  I have put something different up each year in this spot but I've never been really happy with it.  I think this year I'll use that wall space to hang up my Kiddo's Rockin Work!  

Once I realized how I could use them, I sweetly asked my hubby if we could go back the next day so I could get some more.  They only had two packages left.  So now I have 24 hooks, but I'm going to have 27 kiddos.  I'm thinking I may use half of them and tell my kiddos that those who finish neatly and on time can hang up their best work.  Maybe this will be enough incentive to inspire neater work that doesn't take days to finish.  We'll see I guess....

I can always use painter's tape for the rest....however, there's always a few kiddos who would rather take their work home so I think it will work out!   :)  

I went to school today to work for a few hours in my room.  Oh my goodness did I leave it in a mess?!  I'm reorganizing my books again this year and right now I literally have piles of books around my room with post-it notes on them.  

I have a lot to do this week before I leave on vacation this Friday!

Wow, you are going to have 27 kids! Do you have an assistant? Bless your heart, that's a lot of kids! I wish I had a container store near me. That's a steal for hooks! :)

Don't you LOVE the Containter Store?! I DO!! Very cool that you found the hooks on sale...I've been looking for hooks as well, but the nearest Container Store is in Nashville, which is an hour and 45 min away from where I live...booooooo! lol

Congrats on your great find!

Happy 4th Anniversary :) That is a great deal. Once again, I have never been or even heard of the Container Store, but it sure sounds like a place I would spend hours in.
