So Many Ideas, So Little Computer Memory

I have been spending a lot of time reading other teachers' blogs this summer.  I have found so many amazing ideas that I have been saving to my computer.  Many teachers do post their ideas or freebies on Google Docs.  Since I have a gmail account, I just save it to my Google Docs and I don't use any of my computer's memory.  I'm also not worried about my computer crashing and  losing my information.  Other teachers post their ideas on Scripd or you have to go to their TpT store and download the ideas.  I have found a wonderful way to save all of this information.  It is called Dropbox.  Dropbox saves my things online.  I can also log in and access my items from any computer.  That means I can save things to my Dropbox on my home computer and then print it out at school.  If you use the following link, both you and I get extra space on Dropbox.  

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out my giveaway.

Loved browsing thru your blog! I wanted to share with you some information about BRAG TAGS (plastic laminated award "Dog-Tags"). I have been involved in the printing industry for many years, and have been able to use my contacts and save my daughters’ school a significant amount of money on their laminated tag costs. With school budgets being so tight, I wanted to offer other schools the opportunity to take advantage of the savings as well. The costs are over 50% off any other companies making them now! The designs are so fun and you can even personalize or customize make any tag. Contact me for more info and special discount info.

Sue, I've got a question for you on the Dropbox site :) Do you use it only for the stuff You create? and...can I use it for saving the stuff I find and save from the net? :)
Thanks, Laura

I use it for both actually. I downloaded it to my computer. When I go to save something, Dropbox is one of the things I can choose to save it to. Or I can save the things to my computer, then go to my Dropbox account and upload the files. It is very handy because I can access the files from any computer. So I can save things on my home computer and then get to them from my Dropbox account when I'm at school.
