Some Shopping Help For You!

I get asked a LOT about certain supplies that are shown on my blog often: tweezers, tongs, trays and more!  Many of the items I own, I have collected over the years and some I have no clue where they came from!

Recently a reader of mine shared a link on my Facebook page to some tweezers and droppers, which I immediately fell in love with.  I also noticed that Discount School Supply has a 15% off coupon active right now {FABFALL}, and they don’t offer too many coupons so I thought I would share!

Take 15% Off Select Curriculum You can also get free shipping is you place a $79 order…maybe you could combine with a friend to share some items!

Below are links to the tweezers and droppers shared and a few other things I found at Discount School Supply {some on Amazon too, which I linked beneath to help you comparison shop} that would be great for Tot Trays and other Montessori works.  We do not personally own all of these exact items, but things very similar!

There are obviously many more items they sell that are great for homeschooling.  These are just a few of my favorites.  We have variations of everything listed above except the geo boards, I really want those!   I did find smaller plastic tweezers on Amazon here, we have these tweezers too.  My medium sized tongs are here {I got them w/free shipping, now they are charging way too much so watch them!}. 

I also get asked a lot about my porcupine balls and a few other things we use often.  You can see my

imageSchool Tools Blog here for links to many of our school tools {I am continually adding to it}.  Here are a  few posts about where to get some of these frequently asked about and used items…

Keep in mind that even if you have NONE of this, you often have so much just in your house that will work. You do NOT have to spend tons of money to create a wonderful learning environment for a young child.  Always look around your house first and use what you have, especially if money is tight! 

1+1+1=1’s School Tools

I am in the process of organizing our school tools on a blog.  Sounds weird, right?  Trust me, it’s not.

It is a perfect way for me – a total blog mind – to sort things!  I was going to take pictures and create a notebook for me to use when planning {since I am brain dead and forget things we own}.

I then realized that I can tag posts and sort my learning tools online so YOU can see them too!

This is a low-key blog mainly for me to use for planning.  I can search for particular toys/printables by label and quickly see what we have on hand.  As I was preparing my list I realized how wonderful this would have been a few months ago considering I forgot to pull out our Automoblox during our transportation week-DUH!

We own or have everything I list-that’s the point!  Feel free to peek and browse, I am no where near done, so check back!  I am in the process of trying my best to archive our many tools.  I added tons of labels, including a “favorites” label.


I would LOVE for many of you to do this, as I am always looking for new ideas {especially for holidays and birthdays}.  Feel free to copy me and create your own school tools archive, and share it! Send me your link via email or leave a comment here if you take the plunge!!
