Post Holiday Blues
I don't know about you guys, but I've got some serious after vacation blues going on. I let myself get out of the regular work day routine, so I am SO not interested in getting up in the morning! It's SO cold here (polar vortex! Boo!), which only adds to my disdain. Beyond that, the bank account balance is seriously low. You all know it's not easy to do it all on a teacher's salary, which is why I'm loving a newly discovered blog, Surviving on a Teacher's Salary. Crystal blogs tips for saving money and also posts great deals as she sees them online. The deals she posts are for anyone, not just teachers, so I was even able to pass a few good deals on to my parents. Check it out!
While you are at it, don't forget to check out my Teacher Discount Directory! There are so many places that will give you a little (or sometimes big) something off your price if you show proof of your profession. This has totally been a lifesaver for me. Offsetting the cost of classroom supplies can be tough, especially since congress let the educator expense tax deduction expire. If you know of any that I haven't listed, let me know and I will update it.
