If you are a teacher, chances are you have a classroom store or something similar. Well, I’ve discovered the hard & expensive way that, even though I want to, I cannot afford to spend as much money as I want. So, I figured out the cheapest way for me is to:
- Only let the students buy twice a month, as opposed to weekly,
- shop @ the discount stores. I rarely ever spend more than $1 per item,
- buy multiple items. I’ve found that students love erasers. I’ve bought some as cheap as 12/$1.
- Buy it when you see it. Do NOT wait for a better time to buy it because chances are, it’s not going to be there when you get paid.
DO you have any tips you’d like to share? Feel free to leave a comment.
