TEMPE, Ariz. -- Every year teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of their own salaries on school supplies for their students.

3TV's Heidi Goitia took us to a place where teachers can stock their classrooms with much-needed items at hugely discounted, below-resale prices.

Barbara Blalock is the founder of Treasures 4 Teachers.

Teachers pay an annual membership fee of $35, which gives them access to all kinds of supplies for pennies on the dollar. Members are given a reusable bag that they can fill as often as they like with whatever they like from the warehouse. The cost is just $5 per bag.

All of the supplies are donated so the inventory changes often.

Blalock is hoping to expand to other locations throughout the state.

Treasures 4 Teachers is located at 1230 W Southern Ave., Suite 105 in Tempe. For more information, call 480-751-1122 or check out
