Win $100 to Spend in Your Classroom!!!

Like many teachers, I am guilty of spending too much money on my classroom each year.  Typically, every summer I will buy myself one "big ticket" item that I've wanted {like new wood cubbies or a fancy library cart}, plus I stock up on the regular supplies needed to make the year run smoothly.  And that doesn't include the money spent on snacks and goodies throughout the year!

So, when an opportunity rolls around to go on and give away a little shopping spree...
I JUMP at the chance!!
  School Outfitters is an awesome school supply company, and they have offered me $100 to give to one lucky reader, as well as $100 to spend on my classroom!  Woot woot!  Now comes the tough part... what to buy?!  The possibilities are endless, for real!  I could pick up a new small group table for my classroom:
Or perhaps I could replace my whiteboards with a brand new class set, and still have money leftover to spend:

Maybe I could even snag a brand new filing cabinet for my room:

School Outfitters also offers a wide variety of teacher resources and supplies, too!  So, you can see my dilemma... and it can be your dilemma too, if you win! ;)

To enter this giveaway, just use the Rafflecopter below!
Good luck!!!!

Disclaimer: A representative from School Outfitters contacted me to do a little shopping as well as an honest review of their store.  The opinions expressed in this post are my own and were not influenced by the company or the incentive given.

starting in a new school and grade this year--i'm sure i would find TONS of things i would need/want. I haven't been in my classroom yet, so i'm hoping the bigger stuff (easel/whiteboard, small group tables, rug) is already there. then i would just have to add all the materials to use on a daily basis (individual whiteboards, letter and number games, manipulatives, and cute storage things to go with my color scheme).

thanks a lot! kristinknny@yahoo.com
