Win-It Wednesday: $250 Bealls Florida Gift Card!

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 10, 2011 · 284 comments

This post brought to you by Bealls. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's back-to-school season. The number of days left spent poolside are numbered. The sun is slowly losing it's heat, and the stores are stocking shelves full of pencils, colorful notebooks and folders and crayons as far as the eye can see. In addition to supplies, the kids have likely been growing over the summer. Pants that once fit well now look as though a flood is headed their way. Shoes that graced their feet just two short months ago have become tight and uncomfortable after a summer's worth of sandals and sun.

Inevitably, a trip to the store is in order. As we head to the store to stock up for the kids we generally focus on essentials: t-shirts, socks, jeans and other items that can be layered once it gets colder. Start by for deals in the sale and clearance sections on summer items, searching for t-shirts and shorts that can be paired with long-sleeve undershirts and worn for the first two months of school. Once the weather truly starts to turn cold, the back-to-school items will all be on clearance to make room for holiday wear, and you can jump on those sales.

Back-2-School at Bealls has all you need for the back-to-school season, from uniforms to trendy styles for boys and girls. You'll have all your back-to-school shopping done in no time.

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom winner will receive a $250 gift card to Bealls Florida (can be used online too)!

To enter, tell me how you would spend $250 on back-to-school shopping at Bealls.

I just got my degree in Sign Language Interpreting and the attire required is ALL BLACK! Who has that in their closet? I need work clothes so that I can go to some interviews, start working and get off of WIC, Food Stamps and Medicaid. I'm ready to be independant. I have an 8 year old who needs new school clothes and a baby 9 months old who keeps growing. So between the three of us, I would definitely be able to stretch that $250 to cover our needs.


45 LynnHZ August 10, 2011 at 6:19 pm

ID and Class photos are first thing on the agenda and the highschool- so is THE OUTFIT! That's what we need!
