It’s that time of year once again – time for the TeachersPayTeachers Back to School sale! I spend all summer putting items on my wishlist and filling up my cart in anticipation of this sale because it’s one of the BEST ways to get the most bang for your buck!
Today, i’m going to show you some of my tips and tricks for saving BIG during this sale every year!
Many sellers want to make this time of year a little less stressful for teachers so they offer up TpT gift cards through giveaways. These giveaways cost you nothing (except some time) to enter, but can save you a lot! I’ve actually won a few of these giveaways and i’m someone who never wins anything, so i’m a big fan of the giveaway!
I’m giving away a $10 TpT gift card on Instagram right now! All you have to do is be following me and like and comment on the picture. How easy is that?!

Ok, this is probably something you already know, but it’s worth mentioning again. Did you know you can earn FREE resources by leaving feedback on past purchases? No catch!
Every time you leave feedback, you get credits equal to the dollar amount you paid ($5 = 5 credits). Those credits become dollars you can spend on future purchases. Every 100 credits is worth $5, but you don’t have to wait until you have that many credits! You just need a minimum of 20 credits to redeem them.Bundles are an item that are usually a great deal, but during the sale they’re a STEAL. Sellers generally offer bundles at 20-30% off the price if you were to buy all the items within individually. During the sale, most sellers will also put those bundles on sale with the rest of their store for an extra 25% savings. If a bundle was 20% off, it now equals out to a 40% savings. I’m going to be buying a LOT of bundles during this sale!
BUT you can save even more – by purchasing growing bundles during the sale. Growing bundles only contain some of the products they will eventually contain, and they are offered at a deep, deep discount as products are being added into it.
For example, my Differentiated Math and Literacy Centers for the Year will eventually be worth $110, however I am currently offering it for only $20 as I add in months. During the sale, it will only be $15. That’s a HUGE savings!
My Themed Writing Center for the Year will also eventually be worth $117, but it is currently only $15 as I add in centers. During the sale, it will only cost you $11.25 to have everything you need to keep your writing center engaging all year long!
My Guided Readers and Guided Math Curriculum are also growing bundles, although the math curriculum is almost complete, and they are also going to be greatly discounted during the sale! You can get a whole year’s curriculum for very little money.
The first unit in the guided math curriculum is Numbers to 5. The unit contains lesson plans, whole group activities, partner games, follow up worksheets, and home extensions. Here are some pictures so you can see some of the activities included:
I hope these tips were helpful to you! For all my teachers going back to school (or who already went back!), good luck!
