I can’t believe it’s September already… where did the year go..
It’s the start of a new school year and lots of families are busy getting their kids off to school.. I love this time of the year because it’s the best time to shop for your craft room.. The back-to-school supplies section has lots of cool things for kids but I take advantage to check out sales for my craft room. 🙂

This year, I found a few great items. Staples and Walmart had $2 and $3 deals for back to school.

Pen Holder
For $2, I got these great pen holders that you can stick anywhere. I can put these where I need a pen. It’s flexible to fit different size pens. I also put one to hold my laptop charger cable off the side of my desk so it’s I can reach of the charger easily.

 

Lock-Ups Twist Stackable Containers
For $2, I also got these great Lock-Ups twist stackable containers in 4 different sizes to meet all your crafting needs. 🙂 These are designed so that multiples can be connected to create a “tower” of storage. The lids twist and lock each one in place.

 

ClosetMaid Cubeicals
For $3, I got a set of mini ClosetMaid Cubeicals. They are usually $7 or more so when I saw these for $3, I had to get one. These mini sizes are great to put near your sewing machine to dump your thread and fabric pieces. I was debating on making my own thread catcher after reading a blog entry from This Mama Makes Stuff but when I saw these mini Cubeicals, I decided, these would be a perfect alternative. I used a potato chip clip to hang it off one of my drawers next to my sewing table. Voila..my very own thread catcher or mini garbage bin..

Hope you can find great back to school deals to enhance our craft room.
Happy Crafting..
