Weekly Best School Supply Deal Round-ups
This year, I’m teaming with bloggers from around the country to provide you with the best school supply prices at a number of nationally-based chain stores including Target, CVS, Walmart, Walgreens, Staples and Office Max. Each blogger is responsible for compiling the deals for their store and then all the stores’ data are added to a Google Document which will be updated and available at the blog each week. Additionally, we’ll be providing the detailed matchups for Target (the store I’m contributing) as well as Fred Meyer and Amazon.
Best Back to School Prices = updated each Monday morning through August 21st
Best Fred Meyer Back to School Deals = updated each Monday morning
Best Target Back to School Deals = updated no later than each Sunday morning

School Lunch Ideas & Tips
I’ve shared many lunch recipe ideas over the years. Here are some of my most popular:
Mini Calzones. With or without pepperoni, these freezer-friendly calzones are much loved by my kids and one of my most pinned recipes.
Pizza Spirals. Another take on pizza for lunch and another freezer-friendly recipe!
Crustless PB&J Sandwiches. Another super easy lunch idea you can prep in batch and freeze!
Homemade Cereal Bars. A healthy, homemade alternative to pre-packaged cereal bars.
