Shop Dollar General For Back To School Supplies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have three kids who are going back to school in a little over a week.  I have gotten Brandi a few things off of her  back to school supply list, but I still have so much left to get for not only her, but Ryan and Kasi as well.  I wish they only needed notebooks and pencils, but their lists are outrageous.  Kasi is taking an art class that requires her to have special pencils and sketch pads, and Ryan needs a calculator for math. These things alone are going to cost me a smal fortune.


It helps that I have a Dollar General right up the street where I can get the majority of their school supplies at great prices.  All of my kids need binders and notebook papaer, and so far, Dollar General has the best price on both of those things.  If you have a mobuile phone (and really, who doesn't these days?) you can use this QR code to save even more money.  


You can also text "bts" to 34898 to take advantage of Back to School Saving from Dollar General. I know from experience that Dollar General is a great place to shop.  I get all my cleaning supplies from there, which can come in handy for those students who are moving back into a dorm room soon.  I also buy my toilet paper from there.  I don't see spending money on the name brand toilet paper when their store brand works just as well.  In fact, I think it is softer than the name brand.

My point is, no matter what you are looking for, you ca probably find it at Dollar General at a great price.

I Love BOGO Deals!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am all about saving money, which is something I am sure I have said over and over agin the last couple of years.  As a mom of three kids, this time of year saving money is even more important to me.  You see, it's back to school time (YAY!) and my kids need all kinds of supplies before the first day arrives in just two short weeks.

Right now, I can shop for their shoes at Famous Footwear and take advantage use their BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon.  The coupon is good from now until August 18th, and I wish I had the money to go shopping this weekend, because our state is doing their tax free weekend this weekend, and I could save even more money.  But I don't have the money to shop this weekend, so I plan on signing up for Famous Footwear's FREE rewards program so that I can save 20% instead of 15% off my total bill.  Signing up will also earn me 1 point for every dollar I spend, which I can accumulate over the year to get up to $100 in certificates.  Now that is pretty awesome! Being a rewards customer also gets me inside deals and perks, and I love me some perks!


When I finally do take my kids shoe shopping, I don't have to worry about leaving the store disappointed.  With hundreds of brand name shoes and styles, the kids are sure to find something they love.  The best part is, if they find a shoe they like and the store doesn't have it in their size, they can have it delivered to me at home! I even have the option of shopping online at and having what I buy shipped to the store of my choice.  

All I know is that Famous Footwear makes back to school shoe shopping easy!
