Now that school’s back in session, the focus has shifted to helping our schools raise money to afford new supplies, equipment and programs to provide better education for our kids! This year, Avery Dennison has partnered with Box Tops for Education, and Avery school supplies now include coupons to clip and turn in to your school to be redeemed for cash.
Avery Dennison sent me this great gift basket of products so I can share my thoughts on them, plus I get to give the same basket away to one of my readers! I wish I could say I’m an organized person, but I subscribe more to the organized chaos theory. However, products like these inspire me to file things away in a more orderly manner. I enjoyed sorting and filing and labeling my papers with Avery’s easy-to-use systems. Now if only I could keep them that way!
And who could resist the handy tote it was all packaged in? I have baskets and totes like these all over the house to corral all of our stuff. We have far more “stuff” than we actually need, but that’s a project best tackled when I give these crutches the boot. Anyone want to help?
One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a back-to-school prize package (worth over $50!) full of Avery Dennison school and office supplies, including: Hi-Liters, labels, GlueStics, binders, dividers, sheet protectors, Marks-a-Lot permanent markers, and t-shirt transfers!

I home-educate my kids, so I guess you could say I volunteer for EVERYTHING! : ) They’re little, though, so it’s more like playing than work.

I would be so excited to get a basket of school supplies! I miss not “going back to school”.
I love to cook. So I have provided breakfast for Teacher Appreciation and Christmas spreads for Christmas along with a small token for each teacher for the school (small private school) just so they know they are appreciated. I also had my son create his own gifts for them and tried to make the gifts completely about them and no the classroom (Bath and Body Works items, jewelry, etc)
I like to help in the class room when ever I can

I am not volunteering just yet, but I’m hoping to help out during lunch as a monitor. I’m really excited about being at school with my son.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I get involved as much as possible. I always volunteer to chaperon field trips, bring treats for parties, or just let the teachers know I am available if they need me for something!
I bake cupcakes on like every holiday. Including St. Patricks day cupcakes complete with green icing.
I bake goodies for the PTA bake sale and my son and I sell raffle tickets for the beautiful baskets that each class makes for fundraising to aid in free school field trips and activities.
Just subscribed to email updates. Thanks!
I’m a brand new school mom! My oldest is in kindergarten this year and I’ve signed up to be a part of the PTA and to be a classroom helper.
