So our wonderful school PTO gave us each a $50 gift card to Staples. I usually can find some things there that come in handy...Sharpies, staplers..etc. This year though...as I was walking around...I saw this Kodak EasyShare for only $49.95! I had been wanting a new camera that I could keep in the art room. Ours from home is always full of baby pictures, and the schools camera could be about anywhere at anytime?!?! Since I am the yearbook team(ha ha)...I knew that something like this would really come in handy. It only has 3x zoom, but really...when you are taking inside pics...you don't need much more than that. I LOVE IT! Best purchase with a PTO gift card EVER!!!!!!
