Have you searched for seat pockets lately for your students? I have, and I knew there was no way I was going to spend more than ten bucks a pop for some. Nope; not here for that! I got on Pinterest and found a great solution. These are spandex book covers.

They were even cheaper and less effort than the pillowcases that I was going to buy in bulk from Ebay and rig up! Then it hit me, my son’s teacher had this on her school supply list last year, but I never did see him bring a book home with the book cover on it. I was looking through his old class pictures, and sure enough, there it was on the back of his chair. Teachers are the freakin’ queens of improvisation! I scored about 30 of these at Target. They were marked down from $1 to $0.49, and my co-worker who got hers after me, paid only $0.30 a piece for hers.
