… Dollar spot sections at Target, Michaels and to a Dollar Tree store. It’s funny, because generally I hate shopping. I only go shopping for clothes, when my current set gets beyond embarrassing and simply doesn’t fit any longer. But I just love to browse through dollar spots and find it difficult to stop myself. There is always that I simply “must have” for my current theme – stickers with ocean creatures, little toy sets of ocean creatures, “grow a sea creature” from foam capsules, “Go Fish” game . Then there is something “for the future” – construction paper, new crayons, glue sticks, foam stickers, puzzles,  workbooks, fact cards. My “for the future” bin at home started to overflow into the second bin and spill into the closet under the stairs. But the funny thing is that I still didn’t introduce to Anna half of the things that I bought for our ongoing Ocean theme. It never seems the right time. I am determined that today I will try the “grow a creature” – I have never seen it in action, and I am very curious how these capsules will look like after transformation. Hopefully all of us will have fun with them :) What is your guilty pleasure?

I too have a dollar spot addiction at the same stores! I have so many things that we haven't even done yet, but there is always a great buy that I cannot pass over!

We grew creatures recently. It was fun. We measured and charted their growth every day, and then measured and charted them as they shrank after we removed them from the water.

I too cannot pass up looking at the dollar sections of Target and Michaels. The Dollar Tree is my favorite place to shop for things we can use in our homeschool. I recently started picking dollar items at Walmart in their party favors section. Last week I picked up mini sun erasers that we can use for our montessori tub activities.

Oh, I am right there with you on this post! I love, love, love the dollar spot at Target (especially now that it's full of school stuff), and Michaels. And the Dollar Tree? Well, I practically start drooling just thinking about it. I could do a post weekly of all the finds I bring home from these places. Hee hee... I could go on and on! Great post!
