Re-purpose, Recycle, Reduce...& a WiNnEr!

Like most teachers, I try to re-purpose whenever I can. The hubs loves those animal crackers, and when we go on car trips, we usually get a big container to much on in the car. Again- like most teachers-- I always wonder, "What can I use this for?" (Can you relate?) There HAD to be something for these containers! I mean. Seriously. They're great big bears!

These friendly guys became containers for our unifix cubes. Are these seriously cute, or what? They just look adorable sitting on our shelf!

I also had the opportunity to try out some super cool 'green' paper made by Roaring Springs Paper Products. recently: a couple of notebooks geared toward kiddos made of recycled paper, some really neat paper that's made of sugarcane (have you ever heard of this? so cool...right?), and a couple very teacher-friendly recycled paper notebooks. They're called cross overs and each sheet has one side with landscape lines & the other with portrait. Love it!

I'm actually hosting a giveaway right now, too. Roaring Springs would like to give away a sample pack exactly like the one that I got to one lucky person. Click on over & get in your entries! You'll love this paper!

I'd also like to announce the winner of my Pin It To Win It...'s YOU!!
