Could You Use Some Fun Money?

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by School Outfitters to help them celebrate the launch of a new line of preschool supplies and manipulatives.  But guess who gets the party favors?  You!

They are giving me $100 to spend, but they are also giving one of my readers the same amount!  I couldn't believe it.

Periodically I get contacted by companies wanting me to promote their product, but I only like doing so if I can give back to my readers. So, when they offered to give one of you the same thing they were offering me, I agreed to look into doing it.

I'm glad I did!

I can't believe all of the organizational tools available there!

And you know how this girl loves organizational tools.

Here's a little blurb from the email I received:
"Known for its educational furniture and equipment, School Outfitters’ new preschool line includes must-have manipulatives that offer tactical learning opportunities, as well as pre-school art supplies and other age-appropriate equipment. This new line features reputable brands teachers recognize including Crayola®, Melissa & Doug® and Guidecraft."

Um, they had me at "Crayola®".

So, I went looking and check out all of the goodies they have.  Check out just a little portion:


See, I told you they had me at Crayola®!

But, wait...there's so much more:
 See, I told you...so many possibilities!

Check out their website by clicking the image to learn more:

This giveaway ends on Sunday at midnight.  I can't wait to share the School Outfitter Fun Money with you!
The $100 credit is good for School Outfitters merchandise only and doesn't apply towards shipping.  Some products on their site do have free shipping.  The winner will receive a code to use for $100 off a one-time purchase.  The code will expire on Dec. 31, 2013.  Good luck!

  46. As a new teacher who hasn't gotten a first paycheck yet I sooo need some fun money. Since my school is Title I, the teachers are given no money to set up their new classroom - this would sooo come in handy. I would love to put the money towards bookshelves and some supplies which the students are not able to afford.

    Thanks!
