As much as I adore Montessori, I recognize that the materials are quite costly. I’ve recently gone through a big move, and I’m trying to rebuild my stock of classroom items that didn’t make the move. Here I have been rather lucky and have found many awesome items – However I’m rather short on cash, so I’m thrifting everything. Is it possible? Let’s look!
This is just a small sample of the things I’ve gotten. Forgive the somewhat dim pictures, my camera’s flash has decided to quit on me. My husband and I go to the local Goodwill every Half-Off sale and see what we can find. Yard-Saling has also been great to me, however I can admit I do need work on my bargaining skills. I feel somewhat guilty taking things away from people so I tend to give what they ask for. Everyone keeps telling me to just walk away if I think it’s too much, but I really only offer to pay for what I’m very interested in! Oh well, it’s a skill I’ll keep practicing each Saturday morning.
