Teacher’s Black Box January 2017

Teacher’s  Black Box is a box of items which will include “basic and innovative supplies to enhance their educational impact”.  Now I am not a teacher but if you put a chance to get stationery in front of me, there’s only a small chance I’ll turn it down.  They also say there will be a snack in every box.  Boxes start at $20.00 but go down with longer terms.  Normally the shipping on this one would have stopped me from ordering but they were offering a promo code “ONETIME” that gave you free shipping on orders over $50.  That code is still valid so make sure you use it if you want to sign up.  Let’s see what joy they have delivered to me today.

Scotch Removable Chalkboard Tape

This is a very neat thing that I would never have bought for myself in a million years.  It does tell you not to stick it to walls or anything with a texture.  It is around 2″ wide and there are 5 yards in the roll.

How convenient that they included the chalk to use on the tape above.  This will be more than enough for any use I may have but the girls have a chalkboard so any extras will go to them for artistic creations.

This is a 4-in-1 tool that might just get you through any office presentation you can think of.  It has a red laser pointer, a LED flashlight, a stylus, and a pen.  The laser is strong and easily showed up across the house.  The flashlight gave plenty of light to see by and the stylus and pen worked as well.  I’m impressed with this one.

They always include a treat in the box and it has mostly been these in varying flavours.  I know I should give them to the girls but I love gummy snacks so I eat them all by myself.

I hate regular pens and pencils but I understand why they would be included in this box.  There are two blue ball point pens and two NO.2 HB pencils.  They will both be good for the kids or the Hubby.

Inside that Amazon box was this stapler.  I break staplers on an amazingly high schedule so having a full sized one in the house again will be fantastic.  This is just a basic regular model and that will work for all the uses that I need.

This mug has an insert that lists all sorts of qualities that a teacher would have and use.  Since I am not actually a teacher I will probably remove this and add something of my own or leave it plain.  It’s good to get another mug to have just in case, though.

This month was better than last time for me.  A few of the things are really great and a couple are not for me, but that’s only because I’m not a teacher.  I can see how these things would be useful for a teacher and they also work well for those of us who love these things.  I’m not sure how any of these particular items are innovative but maybe I’m missing that part of it.   You can find this box on CrateJoy if you are interested.
