Have you heard of Copy?

Oh my ya'll; it was a crazy weekend. I was fully prepared to post a Five for Friday last Friday, but the photos were on my phone. I went to add them to my dropbox so that I would have them on my laptop for my post. Well my Dropbox went in to overdrive and froze up.

I spent many hours working on it over the weekend. I gave up on it fixing and decided to set up another Dropbox account. I added my files to it and because of the whole ordeal some of my files were messed up. I finally decided to break up with Dropbox. I have been a diehard Dropbox fan, but I was running out of space and after all of these problems I decided it was in my best interest to just move on.

And boy am I ever glad I did! I found my new love! I did a little research and came across Copy. Have ya'll heard of it? Well it is pretty awesome. It is VERY similar to Dropbox, but it starts out with 15 GB instead of the 2 GB that Dropbox starts out with. And for every person you refer you get an additional 5 GB. I will be set on space for a good while.

Copy has an app for all of my Apple products so I can access my documents on every device I own. Have I mentioned that I am a diehard Apple girl? Well I am. I don't personally own any devices non apple brand anymore. There are some non Apple items in my classroom, but that is completely out of my control...sorry I got off on my obsession with Apple. Back to your regularly scheduled blog post.

I highly recommend Copy to you all especially if you're really into TPT, whether a buyer or seller. I now have the ability to store all my free and purchased products that I have found, all my fonts/backgrounds/frames/clipart, and all of my own created products. Plus so much more.

Now if I have you totally convinced to jump on the Copy bandwagon I would super appreciate it if you would follow this link Copy. If you do you will find yourself with 5 GB of additional storage! I call that a big WIN!

A little update on my weekly challenge for Whole Brain Teaching. Today I tracked my Attention Getters (well I tried...I think I missed a few). I recorded a total of 16 times. I would like to see an improvement on that tomorrow. We'll see how that goes!

I am linking up with Fourth Grade Flipper for Tried it Tuesday.

Good night ya'll!


  1. Thank you for the information on copy...I am a die hard dropbox user so to switch makes me a little scared. I will check it out and at least set up an account. Also, I read about the WBT master class you posted about and I subscribed to the channel. I am going to start that myself. WBT is something I believe in and I can see it working as long as I stick with it and really own it, master it etc. I follow you so I will keep reading on how it is making a difference in your classroom!!

    1. I understand being a die hard Dropbox user. I was that way until I had all of the issues with Dropbox. After discovering Copy I am actually kind of glad that things happened with Dropbox because now I don't have to worry about running out of space for a while.
      I am so glad that I found WBT. It has completely transformed my teaching and I haven't even fully implemented it yet. I will be posting an update sometime in the next couple of days about how this week went.

  2. I will definitely give it a try! I have used Dropox - but somehow it has lost my files - I need an extra place to keep things in case my computer ever fries! I have a ton of resources I don't want to lose!

    1. I'm glad I could refer you to Copy. You should feel pretty good about having enough space for all of your resources! I already have a total of 35 GB available. I have a feeling I won't be running out of space anytime soon!

  3. I'm so excited. My Dropbox was almost full! Thanks!!!

    1. I'm glad I could help. Copy has plenty of space to keep my items. I transferred all of my Dropbox items and it hardly put a dent in my storage. This weekend I plan to get all of my backgrounds/frames/clipart put on it so I can always access those!
