Gotta love the delivery to the door with Amazon to save time and running around!

Here is a deal for a 10 pack of Drawstring Backpack Bags with a reflective stripe.  They come in 4 different colors (16.5″x13.3″).  Only the black ships with Amazon Prime and therefore the least expensive.  Roughly $1.60 each.  The other colors with shipping are just a little more.
Sharpie Pocket Highlighters, Chisel Tip, Assorted Colors, 12-Count As a little extra, I like to tuck something fun into my pencil cases.  Here are a pack of 144 fun bookmarks with various religious sayings.  Some say “God is Love”, “Great is the Lord”, etc.
