Happy Labor Day Weekend! Since most kids will be back in school as of this week, this will conclude my 2012 Back to School round up. I hope this series has helped you take advantage of tons of hot deals this season for your kiddos and to donate to local kids and schools. In six weeks, I was able to accumulate all of the supplies pictured below for just $26.79 (including sales tax). While I kept a few items for art projects around the house the majority of the supplies were donated to two local schools.
Happy school year!
