Back-to-School Must Haves: A Teachers Wish List

Summer is quickly fading away and it is time to start making that shopping list of items we need to start our year off right.  With the help of  School Outfitters I will be crossing off a few items on my wish list. They have generously given me a gift certificate to use in their store and have given me a second one to give away to one of my lucky readers.  As I perused their on-line catalog, I began to add items to my cart.  Before I knew it, my cart was a little full and way over budget.  Here are a few of my great finds.

I was thrilled to find these great containers.  I have been searching for some colorful containers and they are a great price too.
 
I added a few jumbo ink pads as well.  I intend to use all my stamps this year and need more than just basic black ink.  I like that these are big and the ink is washable.
I just learned about this bell at the I Teach K conference.  It seemed magical and I think my kids will really like it.
I've had my eye on these magnetic white board spinners for a while.  I can't wait to use them.
Now it is your turn to make your wish-list. What would you do with a $100 gift certificate to School Outfitters.
