*CLOSED* Oh, The Places You’ll Go! Back to School Giveaway Hop – ends 8/23

Welcome to the Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Back to School Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island!  This hop helps you celebrate getting those kiddos (or even yourself!) back off to school with tons of prizes to be won.  The complete list of participating blogs (over 100!) is at the end of this post, so be sure to check that out.

We don’t start for almost another month, but that’s how it is in the Northeast.  However, we’re pretty much all supplied and uniformed up, as we’re taking a nice long vacation now, so I had to be all ready to go before we went.

One thing I’ve done the past couple of years is buy a few supplies on Amazon.  I have a favorite deal blogger I follow on Facebook for these deals (Extreme Christmas Savings) who alerts me to deals on stuff I need, like pens, pencils, erasers, and the like.  With these deals, I’m all set!

So, to help you snag those deals on Amazon, either for school, the holidays, or whenever, I’m giving one of you a $10 Amazon gift card!


This giveaway is open to US residents ages 18 and older.  Giveaway ends Wednesday, 8/23/17, at 11:59 pm ET.  To enter, just use the giveaway widget below.  After you enter, keep scrolling down to see the complete list of giveaways in this hop.  Good luck!

    My youngest is Top Dog at the elementary school this year — 5th grade! My middle schooler is top at his school, too, as an 8th grader. And my daughter is a high school junior. And, thankfully, the 2 school districts finally got their holiday schedules coordinated! (The high school is under the care of a neighboring district.)

    My son is 13 and heading into the 8th grade, He has outgrown every single piece of clothing except a couple tees and shorts that he will be able to wear the first week or two of school. It is truly amazing how he shot up so far this summer. At least we have until September 6th before school starts.
