Hello Friends!! It’s that time of year again, Back to School! I can’t believe it! Summer is almost over! My kids still have another month left, they start school the day after labor day, but I’ve heard some people say their kids start school on August 16th! WOW! That’s EARLY!! And, what’s up with starting school on a Friday? Is it for the teachers so they can meet their class, see what they’re in for the rest of the year, before starting them out with a whole week in front of them?!! 🙂 LOL I don’t know, but I’ve always thought it was weird.
I was going through everything I need to buy for my 2 kids going into the 2nd and 3rd grades this year and I couldn’t believe how much it was!! $80!! Holy cow, that’s a lot more than I remember spending last year!! But, none the less, the numbers don’t lie and I’ve started splitting it up by weeks. I’ve been buying a little at a time and I’ve realized that Staples is my new favorite store to buy from at this time of year, so my cost will actually be cut in half, hopefully!
And, since I was going to have to spend $80 on my kids’ school supplies I figured a lot of other moms or bloggers or students out there will have to be spending that much, if not more, as well and it might be a little helpful, and fun, to do a giveaway! So, I got together with 6 of my blogging friends and we have come up with a great giveaway for you today!
We are going to be giving away a gift card to one lucky reader for $80 to the store of their choice, either Target or Amazon. And you can spend it on anything you want, really, it doesn’t have to be school supplies, but, we thought this might help with those expenses too.
So, without further ado, here are all 6 of us bloggers. I hope that you will stop by all of their blogs because they really are GREAT ladies! I’ve loved getting to know them better and hope you do to!
Thanks for stopping by today! Remember to tell your friends about the giveaway and come back for more fun posts later this week!
