Living in a poor, rural community, I often take advantage of Aldi's weekly seasonal specials. This January's low price items include a lot of must-have items for working with kids. I have purchased all of these from one place or another.
Bonus for adults at the end of the list!
- 3 level rolling cart
- 8.5"x11" laminator and pouches
- Reusable serving trays or appetizer plates to sort projects
- Baking mats to contain messy work spaces
- Collapsible shelves to increase usable space
- Trampoline with handle (I can't say enough about this one! Essential in our house!)
- Neutral colored holiday tins (on sale after holidays)
And most importantly for adults working with kids...
- Fair trade, organic coffee in K Cups, grounds, or whole beans!
You just can't beat Aldi prices, so stock up on Wednesdays when those weekly specials come in.
