Summer Shopping Linky Party!

Hey there! I'm linking up with Kristen over at Ladybug's Teacher Files for her Summer Shopping Linky Party.
This linky party came just in time, because last night I went to Target and this morning I stopped by WalMart and The Dollar Tree.  Here are my awesome finds:
Yes, that's right.  There are FIVE purple pocket charts in the picture.  I could not help myself.  I know they have these perfect little pocket charts every year, but I honestly was in awe over the purple!  I truly don't think I've seen purple pocket charts before.  Anyway, I had to pick up the cute star border and the sponge brushes.  I love the glitter pom poms and will use them for many things throughout the year.
On to WalMart...surprisingly I've found way more at WalMart this year than Target.

Love these name tags in rainbow-ish colors!
I could not resist these folders.  I don't {love} all of them...I bought them for the striped rainbow pattern and the polka-dotted pattern.  I am OBSESSED with the striped one.
These were just way too cute to pass up.  There are about a zillion things I can imagine using them for.
These are for my "jewel jar."  It was broken at the end of last year, so one of my projects is making a new one.  I'll share that with you when it's finished.

Last stop, Dollar Tree...

Why so empty?  Well friends, sadly I found not.one.thing. at Dollar Tree. I've been so disappointed with their teacher materials lately.  I used to go in there and find all kinds of unique stuff to put to use...but this summer, nada.  Anyone experience that? 
Hope you enjoyed reading about my shopping! 
Keep sparkling!
