Project Back To School 2013 – Round Up Week 8, August 25 – 31

My Kindergartener celebrated her 10th day of school on Friday – wow! Already she seems older and wiser to me somehow, coming home with stories about what she has done and learned. But most of all, she has made the transition wonderfully  and she is happy.

This will likely be my last week of school supply roundups for 2013. There might still be deals next week, but most people it seems have done the majority of their shopping. So until next year…

The hottest deals are in red! Happy shopping.
