Fashion Dorms and Classrooms the Way You Want With Command Strips

Preparing for the new school year doesn't always involve the essentials for class. For college students staying in a dorm or a teacher determined to utilize the entire classroom, feeling comfortable in their environment is vital. Faced with enough challenges and stress as it is, why not make it easy to transform your allotted space into something that's actually you? With space at a premium, the easiest way to do that is to utilize the walls, and Command strips make that possible, even when you can't put holes in the walls.


Command strips are easy to use adhesive-strips that attach both to the object you're mounting and the surface you're mounting it too. Once the adhesive is allowed to set, they attach together securely. Once it needs to come down, the adhesive can be removed from either surface. Different strips are available for different weights. Basic 1 lb. strips can hold clips or small pictures. Larger pictures and hangers have special strips available, while specialty hooks are designed for hanging.

It's easy to transform your space with Command strips, even without nails and pins. This Pinterest board has all sorts of ideas for sprucing up your dorm room using the many products Command has available. For the classroom, consider using hooks to hang coats and bags, mounting educational and motivational posters to the wall, and other d├ęcor to encourage yourself and students.

Savings on Handy Post-It Note Products

It's no secret that we love Post-It Notes around here. Given how useful they are for work, school or the home, that's no surprise. Seems like nobody can have enough of them, and now's a great time to stock up in the middle of our massive sale on Post-It products.


From now through the end of the month, this page will have an assortment of Post-It products featured and marked down. This includes your basic 3x3 pads in both regular and Super Sticky versions. The Super Sticky notes use a strong adhesive to cling to more surfaces longer and more reliably. Color sets range from standard canary to the more vibrant palettes offered in their World of Color series. Pads are also available in a variety of shapes such as stars and functions such as arrow flags for signatures.


Of course, if you'll have these on your desk, you'll want a stylish dispenser to hold them. We're featuring the pictured cat this month, but there are several options to choose from. For example, this dispenser holds both standard pads and smaller flag sizes, and even has a built in photo frame!

3M is also currently running a rebate where a $300 purchase of Post-It Brand products will net you a nice Vera Bradley duffel bag! This rebate runs through the end of the year.

Keeping the Classroom Clean

When teachers and schools are planning for class to be back in session, the priority is often on educational items- school supplies, writing utensils, art supplies, and other classroom essentials. It's not enough. Because just as a classroom is a place for learning, it's also an environment where both children and teachers are hard at work. That means keeping the room clean can be an ongoing battle, and not every mess can wait for the custodian.


The standard tool in the arsenal is the paper towel. Spills involving all sorts of liquids from milk to paint are inevitable. Yet how often are the closest towels thin brown restroom towels designed for hand drying? Keeping a roll in every classroom handy will allow messes to be absorbed quickly and activities to continue with limited interruption.


In addition, with dozens of children in the room, hands are bound to become dirty and the risk of spreading germs is high. At the first sign of a dirty surface, having disinfectant handy will reduce the spread of germs and provide for a cleaner, healthier classroom. Many cleaning wipes also include disinfectants in their formulas, so it's a simple matter of wiping down the surface.

Finally, another recommendation for the classroom to avoid germs is hand sanitizer. Keep some around for both personal use and for the class to share in order to keep kids healthy and promote good hygiene.
