Thanks to Great Clips for sponsoring today’s discussion.
Back to school can be an especially hectic and stressful time for families. As a mom of three boys I know all too well the expensive this time of year can be. While I’ve learned a few tricks in the last 6 years of back to school planning that help me manage the financial challenge there are many families who simply aren’t able to provide their children with the proper resources they need for school. This combined with tightening school budgets leads to a lot of teachers spending a LOT of their own money to purchase things for their classroom.
The need is great, but that’s why companies like Great Clips are stepping up and trying to help out.
- First of all the Great List contest allows you to submit your school supply list (up to $100) and a randomly selected daily winner will have their list sent directly to them! Contest ends 9/5/14!
- Secondly, Great Clips has partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org to help teachers equip their classrooms. Watch the video at the #GreatList page to see how they helped one school. The download the check in app and Great Clips will make a donation to Adopt a Classroom for every app download.
- If you download the app, which I have used and LOVE for finding a location with no wait for quick and easy last minute cuts (yup I’ve even managed to get all three boys in with no waiting!) and YOU will get a $2 off coupon from Great Clips. Be sure to check with your local salon to see if they are offering special back to school pricing for even more savings.
