With school about to start back I began to think about the friends of mine that are teachers and since I know that I have to get a few things for little diva this week (all new composition books, pens and stuff like that). So I know that teachers have to be going through the same thing and I thought I would put together a list of stores that give you a discount year round for teachers. While most of these just require you showing school ID some require a sign up but all of it is FREE!
The Container Store
The Container Store provide provides various discounts throughout the year when you sign up for the Organized Teacher Program. Register online for a free discount card to use for in-store and online purchases. If you visit a store, make sure to have your school ID.

You also get 15-percent of the price of all copy and print orders placed online or at a brick-and-mortar location. The best part is this is FREE to sign up. Have your school ID.

Speed Stacks (FREE)
What are Speed Stacks, you ask? Essentially it’s a game where kids stack 12 cups in various formations as quickly as they can to improve hand-eye coordination and ambidexterity. If it’s something you’d like to try at your school, teachers can ask for a complimentary set. However, there’s a limit of one per organization.
