I love grocery shopping. I know I’m weird. I never say no to a trip to Sam’s Club. FOOD AND PAPER TOWELS IN BULK? Sign me up. There are many memberships I regret, but my Sam’s Club card isn’t one of them. I regularly shop there for my household, and my classroom too. Here are 5 supplies all teachers should be shopping for at Sam’s Club.
1.) Flair Pens – Ya’ll. Sam’s Club has the best deal on flair pens. 20 for $14.99! I have purchased several sets for myself and friends.
2.) Cardstock – You can never have enough cardstock. You can pick up a pack of 500 pieces of Rainbow Astrobrights for $8.32. I keep two reams on deck at all times in my classroom.
3.) Children’s Books – My go to location for picking up new releases is Sam’s Club. They are reasonably priced and you can count on Sam’s to always have them in stock. My classroom library is stocked thanks in part to Sam’s. The books in the picture below are all relatively new and range in price from $6.98 to $12.88
4.) 3 Tier Utility Cart – This cart is awesome. I have one in my classroom and one in my office at home. I store goodies that I use regularly in my classroom on this cart because of its portability. I can wheel it to my small group table, to my Activeboard, or back to my desk. It’s functional and cute. This cart will run you about $35.00.
5.) Permanent Markers – HOLY MOLY. All the heart eyed emojis for this set. I saw this baby for the first time last weekend and didn’t hesitate to pick it up. I used to use flair pens for grading papers, but have since started using markers so I can preserve the life of my beloved pens. These BIC markers do not disappoint. You can get 40 markers for $9.98.
