Back to School Giveaway Bash - Southern SaversSad as it is, I think the days are gone where all you needed for back to school shopping was some paper and #2 pencils. Technology is catching up with the school system and we want our kids to have what they need to excel in school.

Kindle Fire Giveaway - Southern Savers

Tablets are popping up on school supplies lists here and there, but it hurts a little to open up your wallet to buy a tablet for one of your children.  We’ve been seeing some great tablet deals on the market, so don’t buy on before you do your research. The nice thing is once you have one, they can be used for all sorts of things in addition to school and hopefully you won’t need to get one again next year.

The Giveaway:

Two Southern Savers Readers are going to win a Kindle Fire.

To Enter:

Tell me in a comment below what you’re still looking for on your back to school list.

This giveaway is sponsored by me.  The winners will be chosen and posted to the Giveaway Winners Page Friday, 8/2.

      I still need to buy some back to school clothes for them, and a couple of supplies here and there. I rely on your lists each week to check the Office Max, Staples ads, etc, since I am a teacher myself. Even though I don’t require my high school students to bring very much, some come with nothing, so I try to have some supplies for them, also. We don’t have any sort of tablet or e-reader in my house, so a Kindle Fire would really be great for our whole family to use!

    • Megan Farris Patrick

      I’m still looking for some great deals on plastic crates for hanging file folders. I’m hoping to use them to set up a “mail” system for passing back papers so I can save class time.

      • linda

        “milk crates” from restaurants usually work great. Some restaurants you frequent might just give them to you.

I search for those every year.

    • Lauren

      Pretty much everything. I’m staring this year as a first-year teacher and I’m just now building up a stock of supplies. The thing the kids seem to go through the most is loose leaf paper, so I’ll need plenty of that! We’ll also need a lot of glue for projects.

      Clear Backpacks- Walgreens would have had them at 2.99 sale this week; but every Walgreens keeps saying they are coming on the truck. Here in Southeast elementary school kids have to have the clear backpacks so they go really fast and they are about 20.00 a pop and don’t last as long as the cloth backpacks.

      I’m looking for the money to buy all of it. I don’t have a job and my kids dad just went to jail Monday because he refuses to pay a dime of child support. he got 18 months in jail. He owes $20k in back support, we haven’t seen a dime in 2 years. When he does pay it is rare occasions and not much. I am doing a little odd job making less than $100 a week…not sure how we are going to survive. Trying to find a good job… having no luck. It’s been almost 6 months of job hunting with no luck! :(

    • amandahazelwood

      Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer are the high ticket items left on my list and lunch boxes….

    • Debra

      I am looking for a variety of things. Basics include composition books, writing and art supplies, etc. I am also looking for some great home education curriculum as well as a laser printer. I am confident that a Kindle could be quite useful as well! : )

    • Angela Shrader

      Everything! I won’t have the money to get supplies (including needed clothing/backpacks) until the day before, story of my life.

    • Renee Seger

      Umm …. still waiting for a supply list. My son doesn’t get his list until the first few days of school when each teacher provides him a list for their class. Then it’s a mad dash to the stores and everything is already picked over from the schools that give out their list ahead of time. But we survive it =-)

    • Lorraine E. York

      I haven’t started yet as tax free weekend is a week away. So I need all school supplies and kit!

      everything! Clothes, shoes, backpacks, pens, etc..

    • Julia

      We don’t find out what our kids need until our Open House date, which is right before school starts. The challenge with that is that the supply of school items is small at that point. Always a fun situation! So….I guess I still need everything!!!

    • Aknobbs

I have a 2 year old son, so back to school for me would be donating what I get on sale (from what you tell me is the BEST deal) to his daycare! Oh, and if I get into grad school….then back to school sale would mean something totally different!! Thank you so much Jenny!

While a tablet isn’t on the supply list, our school is strongly encouraging that parents spring for them to enhance learning this year!

      • Stephanie

        May I add…Jenny, once again, your site has helped us to get all we needed for so much less. Thank you!

      we are helping our niece with her kids, we are still trying to decide on backpacks, one needs uniforms and one doesn’t (that is a fight waiting to happen, lol).

    • Robin

      laptop or handheld tablet for my son! They’re starting to use them in school so that it’s easier for kids to access pertinent information without having to wait for a computer. While these can be borrowed from the school during the year, it’s nice to have your own so you don’t have to delete stuff at the end of the year or worry about what happens if you damage it. I’d hate to owe the school that much money! agh!

Need to do everything super on the cheap now as I came home from work tonight and the cat had cracked the screen on my laptop. My roommate lent me a monitor to hook up to my laptop. It is the saddest set-up I have ever seen! Winning a kindle fire to do my coupon stuff online would be a blessing. :)

      I have 9 grandkids and I have always looked forward to buying their school supplies. Pencils and paper are easy. But I always like the special things that makes the year special. Last year I was able to find book markers for the 5 elementary grandkids and their classes. But I’m at a loss this year. I would like something for their teachers or the class. Any suggestions?

    • 034TH

      We don’t have a back to school list yet, so I’ll just put a tip here. If you’re in the market to actually buy a tablet, I would suggest waiting about two more months. The newest chipsets of the two most popular brands (Tegra and Snapdragon) are releasing soon, which means previous generations will be going down in price significantly.

The Lord has surely blessed us!

    • dona

      I think I have most of the needs covered already with my shopping and putting in our school stash, I will still need some binders. The hard part for me is waiting to get the list from the high school teachers and college professors. They usually wait until you are in class at least the first day. grrrh That makes it harder to be prepared but I still have my stash so I feel like I am ahead of the game.

    • Sherrie Grant

      I still need just a few things. Being a Home Schooler I have to buy on a budget. I was super thrilled when my son’s nutritionist told me about your website today. Two of the things I need most are printer ink and paper. I also need some items to help organize a little more. Some of the deals you have listed I would never have known about. Living in a small town, resources are limited. BUT there is a Staples here and I intend on taking advantage of the “Free” reams of paper and photo paper. Thank you for all you do. I have spent most of the day reading through your entire website and have learned so much. I think I am finally ready to try couponing to help save money.

      My daughter needs clothes and shoes. She has special needs and only eats pureed foods so we are looking for tupperware that is small enough to fit into her lunchbox and cups that have a cap that we can put our own straw in because most of those cups with the built in straws are too hard for her to drink.

    • Patrice

      I have twin boys ages 15 and I have been out of work since May 9 of this year due to sickness. Now that they are in high school it’s harder because the first thing they want is new this and new that but God and couponing has been getting me by until I go back to work. I’ve been struggling but my faith is bigger then a mustard seed. I have so much to do and so little time. I haven’t begun to start shopping for my boys due to my finances but this I know God will provide.
