I have been visiting my favorite school supply hang-outs and must say I am a little disappointed. Lots of the same things as last year. But I haven't given up hope! It's still early! I did find a few things,
so watch for a post about that!
I use a lot of Rubbermaid and Sterilite Containers in my world.
I love the 3 drawer units for all kids of things.
But I also love the IKEA Expedits. (I think I love them, I don't own any YET.)
So my shopping "savviness" is struggling. I think that the IKEA price tag is to steep to cover on my own, but if I actually do the math..... let's see.
The 3 drawer unit could be found for $12.88. So 3 of those units would be comparable to one IKEA Expedit unit. This cute red one is $89.99. Bummer, I was hoping I could do the IKEA number..... So let's look at uses.
Pros: price, versatility, easily moveable, lightweight
Cons: not as durable as wood, may need to be replaced sooner than Expedit
Pros: sturdy, could be used as room/area divider
Cons: price, possibly tippy if used as a divider, needs storage cubes or tubs to store things on shelf,
Okay - How about if I don't buy anything yet....... and plan my room arrangement and classroom space...... and then MAYBE I can justify the Expedit :O)
