It’s Time for Back to School & a GIVEAWAY-CLOSED


Summer is sadly almost over and if you’ve had a chance to step inside of a Target or Walmart lately or looked at your Sunday newspaper fliers you know it’s back to school time! Every store is already having back to school sales or they’ve put up their back to school sections for school supplies. It’s everywhere and I love it! I wanted to share with you some tips on where to shop for this back to school season! These are the places where I personally like to do my back to school shopping and I’d like you to check out these stores too since I think you will enjoy doing your back to school shopping with them also.

So first off, I personally have a mad obsession with the store Target.

I do most of my back to school shopping there for my teen and myself. I’m going back to a community college in hopes of building my computer skills so I can get a better job to support my family. I digress…

Words can not express how much I love target. Some times I feel like writing a letter to Target and I would include a copy of my bank statements so they can see how much I spend there on a monthly basis and maybe they will make me their spokesperson like that Jared guy from Subway.

Target has a fantastic section for Back to School. Each store lays out their back to school section almost the same way with small changes depending on the store. You can easily find Back to school products with every character your child or teen loves! While passing through the store the other day as I bought a few things for my teen for back to school, I noticed they had characters ranging from Hello Kitty, Twilight, Harry Potter, Iron Man, Disney Princess, Toy Story 3, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Transformers, and our family’s favorite STAR WARS!

I managed to get my teen these STAR WARS Folders for only .99 cents each!


I also snagged this stretch to fit fabric TOY STORY 3 book cover for him since he loves 3D animation and hopes to do computer animation one day.


Check out some of this weeks great Back to School bargains at Target in their fliers!


The flier for your local Target Store can be found in your Sunday paper or online at Target.com!

PersonalCreations.com

Another great site to check out for some amazing BACK TO SCHOOL items is PersonalCreations.com. This site has adorable back to school items that include Sesame Street characters.


I used to love Sesame Street as a child and so did my teen when he was a child. We all still love the characters to this day. Elmo is one of the most adorable characters ever created for children’s television. At Personal Creations you can have your items personalized with your childs name on everything from Backpacks to water bottles, lunch boxes, hooded sweat shirts, towels, and even custom pillow cases.

They have the most adorable Elmo back pack and water bottle that I love and is absolutely perfect for any child starting school for the 1st time. It allows the child to recognize which back pack is his and also lets the teacher know too! It’s always good to place your child’s name on their belongings when going to school and Personal Creations does the work for you and their prices are very reasonable and there products are very well made so they will last the entire school year if your kids don’t play very rough with them. The Sesame Street and Sponge Bob products that they have are my favorite and they should be yours too! Visit PersonalCreations.com and have fun personalizing your childs back to school gear!

Sanrio.com

Sanrio the home of HELLO KITTY is celebrating it’s 50 year anniversary this Back to School season.


They are having anniversary celebrations and sales at all their retail locations and on their website www.sanrio.com. Sanrio has everything and anything a little girl who loves Hello Kitty would want for back to school. It was my place of choice as a child. I grew up with hello kitty and I love that she grew up with you. I still have wallets, bags, and watches that I use to this day! There are hello kitty products for both kids and adults online and at the retail store. Sanrio makes it fun for the whole family this back to school season. Check out www.sanrio.com and if you spend $85 dollars or more on www.sanrio.com you get a FREE hello kitty watch!

My final back to school tip is A MUST HAVE product for back to school and that is The Wrap-N-Mat! I’m not sure how many of you read my review for the The Wrap-N-Mat, but this is a necessity to have when you’re getting ready for back to school! It does exactly what its name says. It wraps your food and when you’re ready to eat it opens back up into a cute place-mat to eat off of.


In these times of swine flu in schools and germs that can be very harmful to you and your family you should want a mat to put your food on top of. WRAP-N-MAT® Wraps are the only RE-USABLE sandwich wrap and place mat in one. They come in Original sized wraps that are approx. 13″ x 13″ which are great for regular sized sandwiches and Grande’sized wraps that are approx. 14″ x 17″. They can save you tons of money on packing your children’s lunch for school. You won’t have to wast money on sandwich baggies or aluminum foil and you will help cut back on waste and help save the environment. And they are adorable!

They come in a variety of colors and designs as well! They don’t cost a lot either and I recommend buying more than one so your whole family can use them or if you’re cleaning one, you can have another one handy. You can get your own WRAP-N-MAT® at http://www.wrap-n-mat.com also check out my review for the Wrap-N-Mat!
