Win Some Awesome Book Boxes!

Hi. I'm Denise. And I'm a contain-aholic. For serious. I have more containers, bins, boxes, and baskets than I could probably use in two teaching careers. But does that stop me from wanting more? Nope. Can you relate? So when I was asked by Steps to Literacy if I'd like to review and give away some of their book bins, it took me about a half a second to say "YES, PLEASE!"

And look how pretty they are!



I was sent a set of 8 bins in assorted colors, which I initially was a bit bummed about because I like my things to be matchy-matchy. But now I'm actually looking forward to organizing my teacher read-aloud library with these in a fun rainbow pattern.  They are so vibrant  and cheery - and sturdy!



You can see I've got two large hardcover books and 4 paperbacks in this bin and it's standing tall, no wobbles at all! Uh, please disregard the coffee mug in the sink... ;) Soon enough school related pictures will once again be taken at school!

Here's the fun part. I get to give away a set of book boxes to TWO lucky winners. If you win, you will receive a set of 8 boxes, in your choice of colors (based on availability).

Just enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!
