Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward Program

Virtual-Elmers-Bag-it-forward

The back to school shopping season has arrived! Are you excited? I sure am because it’s a chance to score some awesome deals! :)

For the past 2 weeks I’ve been scouring the ads for the best deals and markdowns on paper, pens and notebooks. I realize that statement might sound kind of funny to some, as I’m a homeschooling mom. {It certainly did to the lady I met in the paper aisle last year.} But believe it or not, even us homeschoolers require a hefty stash of supplies to keep us going!

And even though prices will continue to drop toward “dirt cheap” status, there are many families out there that cannot afford to buy supplies, no matter how inexpensive they may seem to you and me.

Enter the Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward program! :)

I first became aware of this great program through my sweet friend, Heather. She sent me a virtual bag of school supplies on her blog (thanks, Heather!) and asked me to pass it on. Here are the rules of the program:
