Question of the Week 
***

How do you shop for back to school? Do you get deals here and there, shop online, or do you make one big back-to-school trip?
My answer:

I start back-to-school shopping in August once the clearance sale starts. I pick up uniform tops and bottoms, and whatever else school supplies I can get my hands on at a discounted rate. All the school supplies goes in a box, where we use a little throughout the year, and some is saved for the start of the next school year. Once the back-to-school sales start in June, I start picking up a few things here and there, but if it is at a good price I stock up. I do not go out of my way to get the deals, but between Publix, Target and the drug stores, I usually manage to get a good deal on everything between coupons and sales.

I just finished my kids back-to-school shopping lists today, I have a bag ready for each of my sons, and they are ready to go. School starts in the end of August, so I am happy to be have the bags done already.


You can see some of my back-to-school shopping trips below:
Back-To School Shopping at Target – Erasers and Sharpeners $0.20
Target Price Matching with Walmart and Kmart
Target Uniform Shirt Clearance Shopping $3.98 each
Free School Supplies at Publix
Walmart Uniform Clearance Online
Target Clearance Sale – Uniform Pants
Target Clearance Sale – Jeans and Uniform Pants
Uniform Shorts at the Thrift Store $1 Each

Question of the Week 
***

How long have you been blogging? What got you started?
My answer:

I have been blogging for two years, and it has been an amazing journey that has led me places I never knew existed I originally started blogging after friends at gather.com continued to tell me I should start blogging, but I had no idea how to do so. With some guidance I figured it all out, and today I am so thankful that my gather friends encouraged and helped me start blogging.
