Happy Back to School!

Let the fun begin!





My first tip is to sign up for Instant Ink RIGHT NOW!! Seriously, what are you waiting for?! Everyone's doing it (seriously, everyone in my school is learning about it and couldn't be more excited)!! You will save sooooooo much money! I pay $5 a month to be able to print 100 pages. You do the math....yep $60 a year! I used to spend that on one trip for ink! HP monitors my ink and sends me new ink before I even run out! This means that I don't have to run to the store at 10 P.M. because my printer ran out of cyan! In all honesty, Instant Ink has saved me so much money and has allowed me to not worry about the amount of ink I'm using. As a result, I can print as much as I need for my kids!




My second tip is to buy a paper cutter. I actually have two. One for school and one for home. I bought them when they were 40-50% off at Joann's and they have been my best friends from during the school year. I'm not sure why, but I am a horrible cutter. I couldn't cut in a straight line if my life depended on it. Not to mention it just takes too much concentration and time. Since I teach kindergarten, I consistently have piles of things that need cut out and my paper cutters allow me to do that in a timely manner! Plus they have that wire line so I can make sure every thing is straight! :)





My last tip is to sign up for bloomz! Basically it's like Remind on steroids! You can do everything that you can do on Remind and so much more! You can share pictures, share announcements, schedule parent-teacher conferences, send group messages, send individual messages....I mean the list goes on and on. I have always used Remind in the past but Bloomz now allows me to do everything in one place. I used Sign Up Genius for conferences, Remind for reminder text messages and email for sending random pics of the kids. Who has that kind of time?! bloomz gives you a little bit of time back and allows you to take care of all of those things in one place.
I'm sold!

  2. Hello! Thanks for the awesome post and recommending Bloomz. I noticed the link to Bloomz was broken, and it may be because it is missing the B in Bloomz. Would you mind rectifying it? Thank you!
