Buy Nothing Groups - Classroom Supplies


Almost 2 years ago, I learned about Buy Nothing Groups.  The buy nothing group is just like it sounds, you buy nothing.  Theses groups are all over facebook and are based in your area, so it's neighbors helping neighbors.  At the end of last year as I packed up my classroom to move, I had supplies that I couldn't move with me so I posted them on the group and was able to help other teachers.  These groups focus on helping fill neighbors needs and sharing out of your abundance.  

This year, people have posted needs for supplies, clothing for students, and more and they are met by neighbors.  During the pandemic, people posted extra food they had to share and ways they could help someone.  I know that teachers spend a lot of money on supplies for students so I'd highly recommend seeing if you have a group in your area to join.  It's also great if you have extra supplies from a classroom project, you can give to another teacher or family who could use them instead of throwing them away.
