School supplies can really break the bank, and often teachers buy a lot of supplies for the classroom using their own cash.
There’s a store that makes it affordable for teachers.
Treasures 4 Teachers has all sorts of innovative and unique items for the classroom at a fraction of the cost.
An annual membership costs $35 per teacher or anyone who deals with kids including Girl Scouts leaders.
This gives you access to a warehouse filled with donated materials from fabric to binders, markers, staplers, paper and more.
Teachers get a reusable bag for $5 that they can fill up with all the supplies they need. They may fill as many bags as they would like.
There is also a specialty shop where teachers can get fancy paper, craft items, paint and teaching supplies anywhere from 50 cents to a couple of bucks.
There’s even an entire free section with everything from binders to organizers.
It's a great place to get the classroom stocked.
