TpT Seller Challenge Week 2- Dare to Dream

      It is the second week of the TpT Seller Challenge.  This week's theme is called Dare to Dream.  I am linking up with Sparkling in Second, Third in Hollywood, Teach Create Motivate,  and Peppy Zesty Teacherista for this next challenge.  

      I started my TpT journey, like many of you.  I was simply introduced to the website and I began purchasing items that I could use in my classroom.  After purchasing items for a while, I knew that I could begin creating items.  I have always been creative and I felt like this would be the perfect new adventure.  So, originally, I was making things I needed for my classroom and wasn't concerned about the profit.  As people started purchasing items from my store, I realized that I could really turn it into a business, in which I could make somewhat of a profit.   I am no where near the level of seller as many on TpT, but my little store is working for me.  I have enough products, that I can go for periods of time without creating new products, and still make money  That is one of my favorite things!!    
      This past school year was my best year yet on TpT.  With that being said, here are my "dreams".  

1.  My boyfriend and I are currently house hunting.  We have looked at a few houses, but mostly have been searching online or through the links our realtor sends us.  I have been saving most of my TpT money at this time, to go towards a down payment on a house.  
2.  I love traveling.  Whether it is a one day trip or a long vacation, I enjoy traveling.  I love having my TpT money in a Paypal account, so that if I want to book a plane ticket or hotel room, I can use this money for those purchases.  I hope to continue to save this money and use it for other fun adventures in the future.  
3.  As, I just mentioned, currently, I am using little bits of these profits for traveling/fun adventures and the rest is being saved to go toward a down payment.  So, I hope to later on, down the road, build up a savings with this money. 
4.  Last, I use my profits on TpT to purchase other products on TpT!  Even though I create my own products, I still purchase many other products, especially when I want/need something last minute.  I have found so many amazing products on TpT.  I also enjoy using this money for other shopping expenses on Amazon, etc.  

     So, while my dreams for my TpT account aren't crazy, I hope to continue to build a business that allows me to save and spend on items that I may or may not have had the ability to do so other wise.  I can't be MORE THANKFUL for my TpT followers and customers.  It truly is an amazing community.


  1. Oh, yes! Purchasing on TpT using TpT funds is pure heaven! :) Good luck finding your dream home.

  2. TpT has helped so many of us in so many ways... it's amazing what a difference (no matter how small or large) that money makes for teachers! :) Good luck with achieving all of your dreams!

  3. I love that you also purchase other sellers items on TpT! I love being able to find something that I would never have thought of, buy it and it works just perfect!! You can never know it all - there's always another teacher out there who has come up with a fabulous idea that is just PERFECT for your students!! Your goals are great and I hope TpT continues to grow for you to be able to achieve them all!

  4. Our dreams are very, very similar! My fiancé and I have begun the process of buying a house, and oh my goodness...I wish I weren't a new seller so I already had some funds in savings! Haha. You are super smart for thinking ahead on that! I hope all of your dreams com true!

  5. House hunting is one of my favorite things to do! Good luck finding one you love. I, too, want a little extra income to travel. I would do it full time if I could! :)
