$50+ in coupons & a surprise Giveaway-Back to School Giveaway Hop


Photobucket


Time has arrived for the much anticipated Back To School Giveaway Hop hosted by Tammilee Tips! In the spirit of this very special time of year, over 75 blogs have joined together to participate in this giveaway blog hop. Make sure you use the linky below to see what everyone has to offer...and ENTER!!

In my county in NC, school bells will be ringing and the kids will be heading back to their learning institutions on August 25th! When I was a kid, I was always excited to get out for summer vacation, but even more excited to return to school that fall. I always loved getting school supplies and new clothes, and I loved getting to see my classmates again! My daughter won't admit it, but she IS excited to be going back. She is an 8th grader, so this will be her last year of middle school.(Boy, do I feel old!!)

I've been doing back to school shopping, and saving money any way I can! The best way I have found to spend money is by using coupons, so I decided to share that with you! I am giving away over $50 worth of coupons to one Shelly's Bits and Pieces Winner! The winner will also be getting a special bonus prize, but I'm not saying what that is!! Interested? Simply fill out the simple rafflecopter form and you're all set! Thanks for stopping by!






Disclosure: I am giving away these coupons and surprise prize. No monetary compensation was given!

I wait until school is going then I shop! Catch it while it is all marked down.

Susan said...

I buy school supplies at the beginning of the year or whenever I find a great sale with a coupon & keep stocked up on stuff as I find it. It is so much easier to do this & have the stuff on hand when my kids need it rather than going out at any random time & buying the items at full price!
