Back To School #givingbackpack

I was provided $25 by our sponsor Ebates to purchase a backpack and school supplies. I was not compensated in any other way for this post. #givingbackpack #ebates

Giving Back Packs $25 Challenge

This is my second year participating in the Pay It Forward Back Pack Event, and I am so glad I am! Last year, I was able to fill a new back pack for a family friend, and this year I am able to help a family member in need. Being able to pay it forward is so important to me! Growing up, we did not have much money, and I often did with out. Now, I am able to help make it a little easier for the back to school rush for a child thanks to Ebates.

The challenge, buy a back pack and fill it with school supplies for $25. This is not an easy task! Thrifty shopping is my specialty though, so I welcome the challenge. Here is how I did:

Back Pack : $10.00

Highlighters: $2.00

Colored Pencils: $1.50

Crayons: $1.88

Washable Markers: $3.00

Scissors: $1.00

Glue Sticks: $2.00

Pens: $2.00

Note Books: $1.00

Pencils: $1.00

Total spent after taxes: $27.55

I was able to shop online through Ebates, and am earning cash back for my Walmart purchases. Bonus! Getting some cash back made it that I just went over the $25 I was given. It is a real challenge to get school supplies on a budget. My niece was super excited to get her supplies.

It is so rewarding to give back. Being able to pay it forward is an amazing thing, and I am so thankful to Ebates for sponsoring the event this year.
