Teacher’s Black Box May 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.


There seemed to be some really useful things in there this time.


This is also the first time they’ve included a little card in the box.  It has a poem telling you about the items and at the top, it tells you why they put these items together.  This is a great addition to the box.


I can always use more of these for work since the ones in the meeting rooms are dry more often than not.  I like that two of them are fun colours as well as the basic black.


It doesn’t matter that my children are past the diaper stage, I have wipes in my purse all the time.  Sometimes I use them on my husband.  These ones say they are for toddlers but I’m sure they are regular wipes that have been branded up.


Somehow, we never have any packing tape in the house.  There is not a ton on this roll but it’s a 100% increase over what we had and so, so useful to have around.


Basic pencils and pens are good for the littles to use.  I prefer a fancier pen so I’ll leave these in a common area and keep hiding mine.


I haven’t had a soft pink eraser since I was in elementary school so this brings back memories.  That first use before it gets all rounded and used is the best.


This is a portable charger and I don’t think you can ever have too many of them.  They are so handy to keep around and have saved me more than once.


This is the second pack of wipes in the box and these ones might not make it into my purse but probably will live in my car.

This month was fantastic for me.   Normally 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.  There was no treat this time but the rest of the box more than made up for it.  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.
