Tried-it Tuesday: New Bulletin Board Storage from SmileMakers!

Happy Tuesday, blogging friends!
I'm linking up with my bud, Holly,
from Fourth Grade Flipper, for another exciting week of:
For today's "Tried it Tuesday," I am going to share about an AWESOME product that I received in the mail yesterday. Two weeks ago I was contacted by Smile Makers, a Staples company that sells everything a teacher could want, from classroom set-up supplies to craft activities to treasure box toys!
I began perusing their site - it took me FOREVER
to decide what I wanted to try :)
Here are some of the items I was considering 
(clicking on the pictures will take you directly to the SmileMakers website)
Word of the Week Pocket Chart
SCH2484 - Word Of The Week Vocabulary Pocket Chart
Class Scrapbook Pocket Chart
I mean, seriously - how CUTE is that?
TCH1196 - Class Scrapbook Pocket Chart
Cute Library Pockets:

The product I DID choose was...
A new bulletin board supplies holder!
If there was one thing that got damaged from the move across the country, it was my bulletin board boxes. 
And damaged is an understatement :)
Here are how they arrived after being squished
in a moving truck for 8 days:
 This was my BRAND NEW BOX - literally bought
on the last day of school:
*NOW: this is not a bash against this box company - they were very sturdy and held up perfectly well under normal classroom circumstances. However, the moving 2,826 miles was just too much for them...

Anyways, so I KNEW I needed a new one (if not two!)
I was SO excited when the friendly UPS man dropped this off:

I opened the box and saw this:
 It came with very easy-to-follow instructions:
I put the bottom together:
 And then I used duck tape to solidify the bottom, because I have A LOT of stuff:
 Secured the inside flaps too:
 I folded on the lid and...
Isn't it beautiful?
I *LOVE* the quotes - keeps it from being an eye sore in my classroom.
Now, another cool feature about this product is...
it comes with dividers!
I pulled all of my stuff out of my damaged green box and filled up this new puppy! 
The dividers are actually like file folders, so I put the display titles and activities INSIDE each divider and the posters and anchor charts BEHIND each divider.
The sheer organization of it makes my heart pitter-patter :)
I think I need to order another one!
And when I do order something, I'll make sure I take advantage of their "Teacher Perks"
So now I'm off to peruse the SmileMakers website
and fill up my wishlist :)

Question for you: if you could have $100 to spent at Smile Makers, what would you buy?
