I am honored to tell you that I was able to take part in the Madame Deals Media Pay It Forward Back To School event again this year! Last year was such a success! Everyone knows how expensive school supplies can be so being able to help a child in need is awesome. This year Campus Book Rentals sponsored this event and gave each blogger $25 to buy as much school supplies as they could.
I love having the opportunity to pay it forward and could not wait to shop for the items. I contacted our local school and told them what I was doing and was very excited when they said they knew of 1 boy and 1 girl that were in desperate need of help with school supplies.
I wanted to make sure that I could get as much back to school stuff as I could so I checked all of our local store. Here are the items that each child will receive:
2 Composition Books
2 Glue Sticks
2 Packs of Filler Paper
1 Colored Pencils
1 Pencil Holder
For the above supplies I went to Five Below and got the backpacks for $5 each. These were the 2 biggest expenses but every child needs one for school. I got a few other things when I was there as well but the majority of the supplies came from the awesome sales at Office Max. Some of the items were only $0.01.
Total Spent after Tax = $26.62. I added the crayons, colored pencils, markers and ruler from my stockpile that I previously got.
Campus Book Rentals was extremely generous to provide this awesome opportunity to us. Campus Book Rentals is a company that offers students up to 90% off their textbooks! It not only allows students to save money, it helps students make money by providing services for students to rent out their textbooks to other students. Campus Book Rentals has been around since 2007, and continues to help students live a more affordable life. Campus Book Rentals is proud to sponsor such an amazing pay it forward event!
Disclosure: I received $25 from Campus Book Rentals to use to purchase the school supplies to donate. I did not receive any compensation.
