Fall is right around the corner and that heralds the beginning of back to school season. I love summer vacation, but my year actually begins when the kids return to school in September and ends when they finish the school term in June.
StickerKid knows that getting your kids ready to head back to school is no small task, and they have designed an amazing array of stickers that can withstand all the torture your little ones can put them through. After spending a small fortune on school supplies and clothing, you want to be sure that if something gets misplaced it will find its way back to the rightful owner – which is where StickerKid comes in!
With the crazy amounts of snow, sleet, ice, and freezing rain that has bombarded the United States this year – I know that, like me, you are dreaming of warmer temperatures and getting you and your brood out of the house. Time to break the cabin fever for good (for a few months anyway) and enjoy the sunshine!
Today’s guest post is from our friends at Frugaa, and they are going to get you out of those four walls you are trapped in, get you out, get your kids active, and give you a chance to save money and have a moment of peace and quiet to yourself! Enjoy my dear readers!

For years I’ve scrambled for plastic baggies, paper napkins and plastic utensils for school lunches and field trips. Did you know that using those disposable items cost you roughly $435 a year? Our friends at ECOlunchbox did a study in 2009, that calculated the savings for a family that had two kids and one adult packing lunch five times a week.
EcoLunchbox has a stunning line of products that includes super cute bentos, sandwich boxes, snack containers, lunchbags and more, all of which are plastic-free and waste-free and that help you and your family avoid health risks associated with vinyl, plastic, lead and aluminum. This is one of my favorites for the kids – the Three-In-One Lunchbox Set:
Back to school shopping for two kids who think they were born with silver spoons in their mouth just sucks. There it is. Thankfully, Walmart has always come through and enabled us to get what we need for back to school without breaking the bank.
Tax-Free Holidays for back-to-school shoppers can save you a pretty penny with anywhere from a 4 to 7 percent savings on supplies and clothing!
Why Should I Shop Now?
If you have multiple children, or a long list of school supplies you need, then you know that being able to save 4 to 7% off your school supplies adds up, quick!
In the United States, these tax-free holidays usually take place during August to help parents (and teachers) save on their back to school supplies and clothing. The best way to tackle a tax-free holiday is by:
Please join us for the Life in a House of Testosterone and Friends Back to School Roundup event! We are hosting an open roundup for other bloggers to participate in and showcase your back to school articles and giveaways that are hosted on your blog!
We are holding this event from July 11 to August 10 for our friends around the country who begin their school term in August (here in Virginia we head back to school the day after Labor Day in September). The Back to School Roundup Event is a FREE event hosted by Life in a House of Testosterone.
Prepare your child for the elementary school to middle school transition with Case•It binders and ease one area of stress for your child!
If there is but one thing that I could impress upon elementary school educators it is this – take the time to prepare your rising 6th graders for what middle school is going to be like.
My eldest was not prepared, and he had a really difficult time getting used to the new A/B day schedule, not being allowed to tote a backpack throughout the day, changing classes, and having to be prepared for class with what he would need. There is no “let me run to my locker and grab that quick” in middle school!
I was traveling the world wide web the other day and came across this truly unique site – thredUP. It’s just like a consignment store (which I absolutely love, love, love!) but ONLINE.
They purchase consignment-quality kids and women’s clothing from families just like ours, and then they hand-select the best clothes and post them in their online store for you to purchase, and then they are “wrapped with love and shipped from sunny California” as their site says!
I am pleased to bring you my review of www.kidecals.com and the free product that I received for purposes of this review.
Was so excited to see this in my mailbox today!
