Clutter Free Challenge Week 2: It's in the bag!


My little sister and I took JoAnn Fabric's offer of 20% off the entire store on Saturday. 

We went and bought the fabric below. I love, love, love polka dots! This will go around my round table once I replace my desk.


 
This is the ribbon to go around the top of the fabric on the round table.  I'm hoping I can call in a favor with one of my friends who knows how to sow!  So, that fabric and trim on the table below.

I also picked up these nifty plastic snap lock containers instead of using the baby food jars (see below).  I figured the less glass I have in my classroom, the better.  Plus, they're a little bigger (bonus!).  I'll still use the ribbon and magnets, though. 






Then, I walked next door to Big Lots and picked up these lovelies.  The containers were only $1 a piece, and the mini organizer was less than $10.  Yes, please!

Then I saw this cute crafting bag for $2.  Perfect for hauling my new finds into work tomorrow!  Yep, it's in the bag!

Cure fabric! Isn't JoAnn's additive? I swore off that store for the New Year. Good luck with your decorating!
