Back to School: Time to Pay It Forward!

It’s that time of year when the kids start going back to school. Whether they can’t wait to start or they are dreading the first day, every child loves beginning the school year with a backpack full of new supplies!
This year I was able to take part in a great Back-to-School Pay It Forward backpack event! With just a $25.00 budget (generously provided by Campus Book Rentals) I was able to pull together all these school supplies to give to a child who needs it for school. And, as I had two almost-new backpacks on hand, I was able to get enough supplies to fill two backpacks! We have a neighborhood family who been struggling financially and I know this anonymous donation will thrill the two elementary school girls!


I found most of the supplies at my local Walmart  as there are some huge savings to be had right now with school just around the corner! And, they had the cutest Despicable Me minion folders for just $.97!

Here’s a quick rundown of what I bought:

(2) Dixon Pencils $.47 each
(1) BIC for Her pens (2ct) $3.97
(1) BIC pens (10ct) FREE
(2) Elmers Glue Sticks $.50 each
