Well...here we are at snow day #13. Don't get me wrong, I am certainly enjoying my time at home and appreciate that our school system takes into consideration the safety of our students. However....I have had a touch of cabin fever here and there! ha ha Thus...leading me to THIS post.
On Monday, I decided to Spring Clean and go through my closets, drawers, shelves, etc. After cleaning out everything, I managed to fill 3 garbage bags full and gather a basket of books! Because obviously a yard sale is out of the question right now, I figured I could make a little money back somewhere. I plan on taking my clothes to a consignment shop and selling them (after my sister picks out what she wants first) and made plans to sell my books to Mr. K's. Mr. K's in a used book/CD/movie store in town and they do buy backs for either cash or store credit. If you choose to accept the cash you receive 30% of what they'd sell the book for vs. earning 40% in store credit. Check it out - this store certainly played a huge role in building my classroom library! Nothing wrong with gently used books. :)
You can check out their website and learn more about used book store policies, here: Mr. K's Online. Now, let's get down to business....this is what I was able to scrounge up during my cleaning rampage:
Well, that's all for today. I'll leave you with this quote...A classroom without books is like a body without a soul. Happy Thursday! ~Miss E
