back to school supplies


school supplies... naturally working for BIC... I love school supplies... I love when crayons are $.24 a box because there is nothing I love more than coloring with a new box of crayons... but that is about all I love in the quest for finding supplies... I"m the lady looking for that one random item they are out of... water colors... some strange kind of 3 ring binder etc...

last year finding all the supplies on the list was such a pain... I was wishing for some place I could send away to have it all taken care of for me...and then this year I get this email from Ez school supplies wanting to place an add on my blog... I said send me the stuff and I'm in...

the box is full of great stuff... only would rather have gotten BIC pens :) but my favorite part about the starter pack they sent me... the box it came in...

B brings home an insane amount of "stuff" and I am a ruthless mommy when it comes to weeding out the "stuff"... I do my best to recycle right in to the bin in the garage so he doesn't see it in the one in the house and ask why I got rid of it. There is still a huge pile left over and I never know what to do with it... Now I can put it in this handy box...
front of the box

back of the box... check out all the recording spots... love it...




Thanks EZ...

I just went to EZ Supplies. That's brilliant! I'd totally do that. How did they get ahold of you?

Thanks for your comments about Favre's 'Stay Home' pay.

I love school supplies. My boys aren't old enough to need them, but I always stock up on arts and crafts basics at this time of year. I'm actually looking forward to getting the list next year when my older boy starts kindergarten.

that sounds like a cool site too.

We've always liked the back-to-school part of the school year, especially the school supplies! Hey, do you have a new header on this here blog? I'm sensing some Nemo vibes goin' on here, and I like them a lot!

You know, I got that same email and thought to myself, what's in it for me? I should have (and maybe still will!) done what you did and told them to show me the money (ahem, stuff).

I'm sure you find it no surprise when I tell you I cannot remember the last time I purchased a pen, highlighter, or anything in that category!!!

Hey, I got the email too, but already deleted it. Alas, my preschooler doesn't have needs really for school supplies.

Way to go, they got an ad AND a post out of you!
