Ebates Back to School Pay It Forward Backpack Event

I love to be able to give back and pay it forward wherever I can especially when it comes to helping families, children and pets in need in our own community. Back to school is a great opportunity to help in your own community. Let’s help children get the proper school supplies they may need so they can get the best out of their education. This is so important!

You do not have to be rich to give back. Offer your children’s second hand clothing or backpacks to children who may otherwise go without. Offer to cook an evening meal for a family or provide them produce from your garden. It can be so simple. I try to pay it forward whenever I can and I prefer to do it anonymously. It is a great lesson for my son. Who else needs to know besides us and the family?

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

Once again we are a part of an amazing back to school campaign. Ebates has helped us with the purchase of a backpack and school supplies for a child in need. I love to be able to match this and give more if I can. This year I purchased supplies for a boy and girl in our community. The mother is absolutely amazing and so giving herself.

I was challenged to be frugal and find the best deals. I’ll admit, I’m not a couponer. I think I’ve told you all this many times. I always want to coupon and buy the newspapers but never get the time to go through all of them. Time is money to me. I can spend that time working or with my family. Why would I want to spend an hour cutting dollar or fifty cent coupons when I could make much more working? I know, I’m sure someone will tell me why… haha! To me that’s an hour spent I could do something else and well, I just don’t want to do it! Yes, I was stomping my feet when I said that…

So, how do I find deals? I do a lot of online shopping. I always find a good deal online. I love to get free shipping. I mean, isn’t free shipping a must these days? I also check out sales in-store.
