Dorm Room Supplies Savings Tips

college

The cost of college is expensive enough before the cost of Dorm Room supplies and necessities are factored in.

With these Dorm Room Supplies Savings Tips you can send them off to school with everything they need without breaking the bank.

  • Make a list of what you need and then go back over it and include quantities of each item that you need. Mark it off as you buy it so that you don’t buy more than you need.
  • Use Organizing Totes to transport your stuff because they will double as storage when you move in your dorm.
  • Save on Sheets by purchasing Twin Sheets in Jersey Knit. The jersey knit will stretch and fit on Twin XL beds. Twin sheets are cheaper than buying Twin XL.

  • Start shopping early and don’t wait until right before you leave.

Giving Back Packs 2015 – School supplies are so important!

Giving Back Packs 2015

Hello and welcome to our 3rd annual Giving Back Packs event. This year we were blessed with very generous sponsors and lots of bloggers who volunteer to help. We are so fortunate that we are running 3 separate campaigns.
Aldi Giving Back Packs Campaign 2015
So the idea behind the #GivingBackPacks project is that each and every one of us can do something to help others and we should. If a large number of people come together to give back in a small way we can make a BIG change. We asked bloggers to participate and help one child by filling one back pack and donating it. We search for and secure sponsorship so that we can help those bloggers help someone in their community because we truly believe that we can make a huge impact in the lives of just one child each and that ripple will grow and grow and someday make a huge impact on the world. We are overwhelmed by the response of the blogging community and the sheer numbers of bloggers who want to help out. We are also so very grateful to our sponsors who have great enthusiasm for our Giving Back Packs project and whose generosity makes it possible. A little bit more about our sponsors:

5 Ways to Save Money When Packing School Lunches

Packing School Lunches

packing school lunches

When school starts, you want to be sure that your child is eating a healthy lunch. Having lunch at school can be expensive and lets face it, they may not be as healthy or as tasty as something you made at home. If you follow a few of our 5 ways to save money when packing school lunches you can be sure that your child is eating something that tastes great and is also good for them.

5 Ways To Save Money When Packing School Lunches

1. Make or buy large batches of things like pudding, chips, cereal bar treats, cheese slices and veggie sticks. Put them in reusable containers or snack baggies to make your own individual servings. This will save lots of money compared to buying pre–packaged single servings for school lunches.

2. Bento box lunches are similar to Lunchables except you have control over the ingredients that go into them. These containers have different sized compartments. Use fruit, veggies, crackers, sandwich meats to fill the different compartments. Your kids will love the bento box and the variety of foods they get to have at lunch.

3. Invest in a Thermos. Make a big pot of soup/stew or even a favorite casserole. The Thermos will keep your child’s lunch warm until it’s time to eat and this will save you money in the long run.

4. Leftovers from last night’s dinner can be packed for lunch. Use a Thermos to keep food warm. Certain foods like leftover chicken or pizza may even be enjoyed cold.

5. Go to the dollar store and stock up on baggies, napkins, plastic forks, spoons and different sized containers. The dollar store savings will quickly add up.

By using some of our 5 ways to save money when packing school lunches, you can rest assured that your kids are getting a healthy and delicious lunch. Packing your own school lunches give you control over the ingredients, flavors and the cost. Your wallet and your child will thank you!
