We were recently contacted by Wal-mart to take their back to school shopping challenge. The challenge was to find and buy 5 outfits for $75 at Walmart. Since our 11 year old son’s school started back up in early August and we already had his school shopping done, we decided to take our 8 year old son on his very own shopping spree. Being homeschooled, he normally doesn’t get to do the whole back to school shopping experience therefore he was thrilled to be a part of this!
At first I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get 5 outfits for $75 so I logged on to Walmart’s Back To School Shopping Closet application for some preparation & inspiration. After I saw their awesome budget friendly prices I was ready to get some shopping done!
Bathing suit season has ended here in most of the United States. However, it’s never too early to shop bathing suits for next season. Plus a tropical destination or warm indoor pool may be in your near future and you need to look good, right?
Sauipe Swimwear, a Brazilian inspired swimwear company, recently asked us if we would like to try out one of their suits. Since the opportunity arose right before I left for vacation to the beach I couldn’t say no. Plus I was interested in how these supermodel-ish suits (they were featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition magazine this year) compared to the basic swimsuits that most of us Moms wear as far as comfort, usability, and style.
If you have pre-teen girls you’ve probably heard of Nickelodeon’s newest hit show True Jackson, VP starring Keke Palmer. Now True Jackson has it’s own fashion line called Mad Style for young girls everywhere. This line of clothing, shoes, and accessories was crafted by Jane Siskin, the same person that created the Olsen Twins previous successful Wal-mart fashion line. If your kids like True Jackson they are sure to love the Mad Style fashion line available only at Wal-mart.
By now most of you have probably seen the fun “spendervention” commercial featuring both Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Every time I visit my family in the city, the first place I go is to Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Every time we go on vacation and need something the first place we look is Marshalls or TJ Maxx. So, when we were asked to share our very own spendervention story we were happy to participate.
As part of the Marshalls & TJ Maxx Spendervention campaign we were given $25 to spend at each store and then share our finds!
