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 would love a giftcard to Bealls! How would I use it? I'd take the knowledge that I've learned from this site about couponing and saving that I've learned from the Deal Seeking Mom to maximize my back to school purchasing to cover my whole family. A little can go a looonnnggg way when you know how to work the deals!
