How My TPT Wishlist Changed My Life . . . Not Kidding . . .

You know how when you download FREE items on TPT, they don't transfer into My Products? 

Well I , ALWAYS, "shop" for freebies on TPT at HOME and e-mail them to myself because I am CONSTANTLY losing my flash drive.
I'm the kind of girl who is going to need to download something at least 10 times. :) 

AND . . . sometimes when I'm reading blogs, I just don't have TIME to stop and download!

SO . . . I came up with this GROUNDBREAKING idea!!!! 

Are you ready??

I started adding all of the files that I download for FREE onto my WISHLIST!! Ta-da!!

This is also perfect for when a coworker is like "cool, where did you get that" and you can just WHIP it right up, instead of having to do a search, and wait . . . . . and WAIT (if you are on the servers at my school). :)

Maybe you already do this . . . maybe I am behind the times, but I think its revolutionary. 

Okay  . . . . yes, I know that your quality of life has only SLIGHTLY improved but I don't care because: 



  1. Thanks for the idea, Casey! You rock! I always end up with multiple copies because I can't remember if I've downloaded a file already or not. Now, I can keep track. :)

  2. I've practiced this for a while. Now my wish list has too many items that I need to download onto a flash drive. Actually, I think I'm going to invest in a portable external hard drive. Love the elephant on water skis.

  3. You are a genius!!!!

    Oh, thanks for downloading Purrfect Place Value!!! :)

  4. Love it! I've been doing this for a few months, and it is groundbreaking how easy it makes it when you need to find something again!! :) The elephant is making me giggle constantly as I type this... Hubby thinks I'm losing my marbles. Ha!

  5. Need to start doing this so I don't look so silly waiting to show a fellow teacher why they should get excited about what I am using and our serving taking FOREVER

  6. This is an awesome idea !! I am just like you~ I download everything 10 times and sometimes STILL can't find it when I need it :) Also, thanks for stopping by & I agree... next Wednesday and Thursday are going to be treacherous!

  8. Hi Casey! You have me laughing! That is a fabulous idea! I've been trying to pin them all to my pinterest board, but this would be much easier. My problem isn't that I lose my flash drives, but that I keep breaking them.

    Have a great week!


  9. LOL you are too funny. What a great idea to do that - I love it. AND I absolutely LOOOOOVE that meme. Elephants are my fav so it's perfect <3
