On vacation...

Hi my friends,
Have you been wondering where I am? I have been away at Camp Abilities CT. We had the BEST year of camp and I am quite excited to blog about it! But right now camp has worn me out and I am packing my bags for Miami for a besties weekend. I will be back August 30th with a new great post about organization! Until then, check out the Camp Abilities Connecticut website, www.campabilitiesct.org.

See you next week!

Community Event

Hey blog peeps,
I received this email the other week with something fun to share. Read below for more information!

 I have a visual condition known as Nystagmus and a slight case of Albinism, as well. I stumbled across your blog through FamilyConnect.  I have been organizing the first ever Nystagmus Walk.
 It will be held on April 13th, 2013 in Nashville, Tn. The main purpose of the walk is to raise awareness and monetary donations for Nystagmus and Nystagmus Research. The walk has a Facebook Page, Twitter, and Blog all under 'Nystagmus Walk 2013'.

More super finds at Target!

I was doing my usual walk through at Target and stumbled over to the back to school dollar bins and found another "super find"! I know we are in the middle of summer on vacation but have no fear, I am out finding good finds for the upcoming school year for you.
I saw these great little finds and thought they were perfect for calendar box systems. [Not know what calendar box systems are? I've blogged about it before so stop reading this little post and hop over and read about calendar box systems.] I also thought these finds were great for organization for preschoolers and great for sorting and sequencing for our MIVI/ASDVI students. 

Best part? The price ranges from $1-$2.50 in the dollar
 bin section at Target. 

These trays are great because they have a good size but they aren't too deep. They can also double as little work stations for our preschool crew.

Okay, this was a tougher pic to take because a lot of other things got in the way. I wanted to get a shot of all the different types of buckets. Sorry for visual clutter!

Perfect buckets for "finished" or "all done" boxes! The handle is also a little super find because it works as an attachment aid. I saw a teacher loop a nice fabric through the handle and attach it to their students' chair. I also liked that they had these in black. These are also great sorting buckets or "now" & "next" buckets. So many possibilities....
