As not only a bargain shopper, but also as a crafter I am always on the lookout for good deals and bargains. One of the more expensive times of the year is Back to School time – many times there are lists of items that need to be purchased, and at times the need to go to multiple stores is needed.
As I was recently walking through my local Dollar Tree I realized that those classrooms lists that forced my father to numerous stores, could be purchased at Dollar Tree.
Send a Bear Hug to a Student Away From Home with a Back To School Bear Hug Care Package Review + Giveaway
I remember the first time I moved away from home. I was a couple weeks out of high school and totally naive to the experience that lay ahead of. Those first couple weeks were an adjustment and I began to miss home quickly. I craved anything that reminded me of home, and I made many phone calls during that time.
Remembering that feeling, when I recently received the Back to School Bear Hug Care Package from GourmetGiftBaskets.com I wished I would have had something similar during those hard first weeks.

Keep Love on the Schedule – Love Today Planner by Stampin’ Up Review + Giveaway
There are busy days ahead, there is no doubt – the school season has returned. With this new year comes appointments, meetings, carpools, assignments due and somehow finding time for you to breathe.
One of the biggest struggles is keeping all these dates and schedules straight. I have tried to make sticky notes in strategic places that I know I will see. These fall and inevitably end up doing nothing more than assisting me in forgetting the event. I have tried phone reminders but I end up “snoozing” those, and before I know it, I have snoozed through another event. There is one method that helps me keep events and dates in order – a nice planner. I am a simple gal and need a calendar, room to write events and places to put random pieces of paper.
A couple of years ago my favorite planner finally had met it’s fateful end while I was sad, I never anticipated that it would be so difficult to replace. Ever since I had that loss I have been on a search for an adequate replacement. When I saw the new Love Today Planner Kit by Stampin’ Up it was the closest thing to my beloved planner.

With its combination of sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, water, butter, salt, food coloring and flavorings nothing can remind kids of home quite like taffy. Taffy Town uses a whipping process and 24 hour-long batch conditioning process that results in the purest and tastiest taffy around.

When I was young, I looked forward to back to school shopping. My father would take me to the store and I would choose the perfect notebook, pencils, pens, erasers and crayons. Each year my goal was the same – stock myself for the year ahead.
