It's Taking Over...

I am linking up today with Christina today from Buntings, Books, and Bainbridge to show you my summer piles!  This is supposed to make me feel better about my piles! Right?!

I don't know whether to be excited about the things have found this summer for school or to have someone stage an intervention!  Just like Christina, my piles are bad!  They have taken over the dining room and the garage!  I've tried to make myself feel a little better by telling myself that I have all of my stuff stored in the garage because I am changing schools and I can't get into my new school yet, but the truth is my pile has grown over the summer and is encroaching into the house. 

No longer is my dining room table used for family dinners and guests, but for my latest project that needs cutting and laminating. It also is housing my classroom library.  

My garage (well half of it) no longer holds cars and lawn equipment, but a classroom worth of supplies, manipulatives and books! 

Oh my!  When I look at this in picture form it looks WAY worse than I thought. Man! I have got to get in school soon, because I'm looking for a new corner to pile stuff in! :)

I feel the need to go the Dollar Tree or Big Lots! ;)


  1. I know exactly how you feel! I am not sure why my large piles keep urging me to add more to them! hahaha

  2. heeheehee
    I love that last comment about Dollar Tree...
    I'm running out of corners too!

  3. Oh my gosh! I feel so much better after looking at your piles! ;) But at least you have the excuse of changing schools!

    Thanks for linking up!

  4. Your piles look like stacks of fun! It is great to have so many manipulatives. I wouldn't be ashamed at all.

  5. I am changing schools too! I however refused to bring all of that stuff my new room is ready and the custodians are going to transport my goods to the new school. Sounds like a batch of brownies to me! Good luck with your move and your piles.
    Trust me, I am not looking forward to unpacking.
