This past week, was teacher appreciation week. Every day we were given ideas of what we could do or bring into our childs teacher.

This also happened to be a CrAzY week for me, and the idea of getting 3 different teacher gifts together every day was just not going to happen.

I was at Target one morning. I am there a lot. However, our store is converting into a Super Target (: So because of all the construction going on, there is a ton of stuff on clearance. I *heart* clearance.

When I spotted these huge tote bags on clearance for $5 I knew they were a must have. (*Side note, I almost bought one of these when they were just 30% off. So glad I waited!!) I grabbed 3 for myself and happily went on my way. But then I had that nagging thought in my head..."you need to do something for teacher appreciation week". So I went back and grabbed 3 more!

Later, I filled each bag with different items out of my STOCKPILES!! Each bag had lotions, hand soap, paper towels, kleenex, hand sanitizer, a few school supplies, chocolates...All stuff that a teacher needs! I was going to throw in a bottle of Advil ( I mean who wouldn't have a headache after dealing with my kids all day?!) but in the end I didn't (:

When it comes to gifts, think out of the box and into your stockpiles! BTW: the teachers LOVED them (:

OMG, I wish I could get a verbal thank you for teacher appreciation. You are so wonderful to do that for your children's teachers. So as a teacher who rarely gets gifts or thank you's from her students, I want to say a great BIG Thank You for thinking of us.

So, I was just at Target and guess what? Ours is turning into a Super Target, too. Cool.

@ Booksnob, I think teachers have one of the most important jobs! My Mom was a teacher and I always saw all the hard work she put in! I hope that you get some recognition for all that you do!

@Susan, Ben is a little nervous about it. He thinks I already spend too much time and $$ there! lol
