Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up and I thought I’d share some ideas to show your child’s teacher just how much you appreciate them putting up with your child.  Seriously, God bless teachers.  I have no idea how they handle all those children without losing it on a daily basis.  I totally understand why you see teachers at Happy Hour on Fridays.  Teachers are definitely special people, especially those (like my Mom) who use their own resources and work countless hours after school to make sure their students succeed.

Here are a few teacher appreciation gift ideas to show your appreciation. Continue reading “Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas”

At the end of every Target trip when you’re checking out you’re always faced with the same question, “Would you like to apply for a Target REDcard?”  Now I’m a Dave Ramsey Girl so my automatic response is always “NO” ( see post on finances if you’re curious why).
