Can I reach 1,000 fans?? And a giveaway!!

Hey friends! I am rapidly approaching 900 followers. That is simply unimaginable to me - thank you so much! Seriously, if I ever reach 1,000 fans....you'll probably hear me scream all the way from Tennessee! ha ha Can I do it? 

I have neglected to host any type of giveaway lately and was recently presented with some goodies. I arrived home on Tuesday night to find 2 BIG boxes on my porch full of products from Samsill Corporation. If you're not familiar with Samsill, you need to be. It's like the Cattle Act (as Junie B. Jones would say) Cadillac of notebooks/office organization. Needless to say...when I opened these boxes, I squealed with delight! 
Um, hello jackpot! Is the new school supply smell resonating through your computer screen? #yum And how stinking cute are these polka dot binders? Samsill binders are smartly designed for the ultimate in functionality and convenience. I strongly encourage you to browse their site and become familiar with their name and products. You'll often see their items listed in educational catalogs, office supply catalogs, magazines, etc. 

So, I know you're wondering....ok, what's in it for me?

Well, 2 lucky winners will be selected to win the following:
Winner 1: 
a orange letter size padfolio
Estimated value - Well, I dunno...but, a LOT! ha

Winner 2:
a orange letter size padfolio
Estimated value - Well, I dunno...but, a LOT! ha

You have 4 opportunities to win and leave a comment for EACH:
1) follow my blog and state you do so 
2) tell me your favorite/must have school supply
3) blog about my giveaway and post the link
4) visit the Samsill website, browse around, and tell me you did so

This giveaway ends Saturday, April 21st at 10:00 (eastern/standard time). I'll announce the winners on Sunday and ship out the loot, asap! Best of luck and thanks for following!

My back to school must is Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. I use them to erase my board daily, but they're a life saver. They'll take permanent marker off anything slick (desks, dry erase boards, etc.). They are really magic. Plus, I cut them into tiny pieces for kids to use on their little whiteboards.

My must have school supplies are pencils. My students are constantly getting new sharpened pencils, but are not putting any dull/broken pencils in the can. I think I have a black hole in my classroom that only sucks up pencils.
