I look forward the the kids getting out of school for summer break every year. Then two weeks into the summer, I start looking forward to them going back to school. Thankfully, that time is fast approaching, and I can not wait! I love the routine we fall into with homework and bedtimes, and I can not even tell you how tired I am of hearing the kids complain about being bored. The only thing I don't like about them going back to school is the amount of money I have to shell out for school supplies.
This year, all three of my kids need new sneakers. In South Carolina, physical education is not a yearly requirement like it was when I went to school in New York. That said, this just happens to be a year where all of my kids have gym first semester. They usually wear flip flops, sandals, or even boots to school, so I hardly ever buy them sneakers. Now that they need them, they have all outgrown the ons they have. THankfully, Famous Footwear is having a great back to school shoe sale, where I can use a BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon to save money.
They also offer a FREE rewards program, and signing up can save me an additional 5% off my total purchase. The rewards prgram also gets me i point for every dollar I spend, and I can save those points to get up to $100 in certificate each year. Becoming a member also gets me special discounts and perks, and I love that! they have hundreds of name brand shoes in their stores, so I am sure my kids will find something they like. Plus, by taking advntage of the BOGO, I can get myself a new pair of shoes, which is something I hardly ever do. The coupon is good until August 18th, and if I can't find the time to get to one of their stores, I can shop online, which is awesome.
And after I get them shoes, the only things left to buy are pens and pencils and bookbags and notebooks and rulers....the list goes on and on and on. Wish me luck!
