That woman cracks me up y'all! I totally envision the carpet squares ending up this way when I tell the kids to bring them in. SOOOO... to solve the rug dilemma...I bought my OWN 8x12 rug from Lowe's for $72 bucks. Now the tag said it was "charcoal", but once I got it in my room it said "black". To be honest, I am feeling some serious love for it, but I already know that my teaching partner is going to beat me. Beat me, I tell you. My brand new rug is not so good at hiding stuff, what with it being "black - supposed to be charcoal" and all. I bought a Shark vacuum cleaner to solve that. Now that woman can vacuum to her heart's content and fall in love with the rug too. But...I digress!!!
So how did I solve the whole "island, peninsula, what kinda order is this"seating dilemma? I bought SitSpots. I did y'all! I really did. And I swear I believe in my heart that it may just be the best $55 dollars I have ever spent.
They look SO bright and happy on my rug. EVERYBODY has a spot and this OCD teacher is happy for some order! AND the best part is the rug and spots came in at just $135 total! Way better than $400+. And to be honest, I think it's WAAAAY cuter. No offense to my old rug, this one just matches my class decor perfectly. And did I mention I can wash those SitSpots and keep that rug looking beautiful! And did I also mention that this suckers stay put. You can vacuum right over them with no worries, and you KNOW that will make my teaching partner very happy. And did I also also mention that they come in all sorts of bright colors and even other shapes like stars and hearts and fish, oh my! People...it's my JAM! I am one happy girl! Now...let's just hope none of my sweet new babies even CONSIDER pulling up 1 of my SPOTS!
And do you remember when I said it was the best $55 I have ever spent? Well...here's YOUR CHANCE for it to be the BEST $50 you DON'T have to spend! That's right! You get a chance to win $50 in SitSpots for FREE! I know, right!!!!
I emailed Joyce over at SitSpots to see if they had any coupon codes going on right now that I could offer to you all. And that sweet woman, well she did even better. She said "How about you give a $50 SitSpots gift card code away to a reader!" And I was all like "Woman, I love you! Sit Spots are my new JAM and now I get to share them with a bloggy friend". (Or something along those lines...I was so excited who knows what I emailed her!) It was a happy moment I tell you!
