We've all heard about shopping your own wardrobe, so what about shopping your own workplace?I am a Kinder teacher. The kinder that I work at is a small semi-rural one and has had nothing thrown out for many years, that is until I started there in late January. In the recent holidays my assistant and I spent a whole day tackling the storeroom. We could have filled a skip with what we threw away. The worst offender were lids. Lids from icecream containers. Lids from margarine containers. Lids from containers that were apparently long gone. Enough lids to sink a ship!
I did manage however to find a few little treasures to take home. I even found the vintage button in the playground last Thursday. I've also seen some pieces of fabric that deserve a second look!
But sssshhh - please don't tell anyone, just in case it's not the done thing!
