Paying it Forward is Gutzy!

Recently I was given the opportunity to do some Pay it Forward for the new school year by Madame Deals Media and Gutzy Gear.  I was given $25 to go back to school shopping! How fun.  I LOVED back to school shopping growing up, and even though I graduated college several years ago, and my baby is many years away from going to school, I still get giddy when I see the back to school ads and aisles of new school supplies at the store.  A fun bonus to the backpack and supplies is that Gutzy Gear sent me some strap covers and Gutzies too! After we got everything together, we then needed to donate the items to a child in need. 

My school supplies!
I did all of my shopping at Target and Wal-Mart.  They seemed to have the best deals in my area, and I wasn't going to waste a ton of gas (and drag an infant around) just grab a few super deals here and there around town. Now I choose to donate my items to a fabulous co-worker who has two elementary school aged sons who could definitely use some school supplies, so that is why there is a lot of duplicated items in my picture. 
I was able to get 2 packs of lined paper, 2 spiral notebooks, a few folders, 2 pencil cases, 3 packs of different study flash cards, 4 bottles of glue, a ruler, 6 pink erasers, 3 pairs of scissors, a pack of color pencils, a pack of #2 pencils, 8 glue sticks, 3 highlighters, a protractor, box of crayons and a pack of colored pens. Add that to the packback, strapcovers and Gutzies and we're good to go!

This pay it forward event was sponsored by Gutzy Gear and powered by Madame Deals Media.  I was given $25 to buy a backpack and school supplies.
