Dumpstering "Teacher Style"

So a couple of teachers and I went dumpster diving "teacher style" yesterday. Instead of household items or food like other divers seek, we go keeping our classrooms in mind. My first dumpster experience yielded 2 easels and posterboard. This time, I was able to snag 50 portfolio/scrapbooks, several camera bags, white labels, a large amount of photo printer paper in different sizes, and white butcher paper. Altogether, these items would have probably cost me in the neighborhood of $150. Talk about great savings for a poor teacher's wallet!
