August Currently & Box Tops

AAAaahhhhhhhh! It's already August!?!?!? What happened!?!?!?!?

We don't go back to school until after Labor Day, so I still technically have a month. But I know that month is going to be filled with laminating and cutting and hanging and prepping and copying and begging (my family to help me!!!) and planning!!!

Here is my August Currently:

My B2S must haves- I always always always have a Sharpie on me. Always. 

I cannot say enough about this laminator- it's made my life so much easier! And it works SO well!!! And now I can laminate all my stuff, at home, in my jammies, on my couch, and not worry about my hair getting caught in the big old clunky one (that always works and never ruins my stuff) at school! :)

And my friends- especially school friends who understand just how stressful this time of year is. It's just nice to be working alongside people I consider good friends- it makes going back everyday at 6:30 am not so painful! :)

Thank you for hosting Farley!!!

****Side note- I made this for my Box Tops:

Happy Friday!!!


  1. Hey Sandy---that's awesome you get to go to Disneyland!! I would love to go there! What a nice treat for the summer. We used to go back after Labor Day but not this year...aaargh I'm getting nervous!

    Glad I'm not the only one with noisy drinking dogs!!

  2. I hear you on the laminator! How did we survive without these at home for so long?!

    Enjoy your time at Disneyland! I'm headed there on Monday as well for some last minute daytime summer fun. I have an annual pass, so I am a frequent visitor (but usually on the weekends).

  3. I love the BOX TOPS!!!!! Yeah!


  4. Sandy, your "currently" could have been written by me :) Ahhh...Disney, so magical!

    Oh, how I wish we went back to school after Labor Day!! This year we go back the Monday before.
    I really need to invest in a personal laminator. I have one currently on loan from a coworker.

  7. I love my laminator! I can't imagine life without it. Have a blast at Disney. What a great way to finish out the summer.

    Sharpies are a must B2S :)

  9. The happiest place on earth when you don't go on a weekend during summer (I hope)! What a fun way to wrap up the summer and gear up for your new crew! Love us some Sharpies as well! The more colors the better!!!
    Have a blast girl!

  11. I so need a laminator, because I don't think stopping by your house to use yours would work. California is a little far away! :)
    Have so much fun at Disney!

  12. Oh my GOSH! Seems like a simple idea, but a box top container??!? I LOVE! How many times a week do children give me handfuls of box tops? Too many to not have a bin for them! I just never had the forethought to do that. Haha. Thanks for sharing. :) I'm a new follower!

    Check out my giveaway if you can!
