Back to School Supplies:
We are so excited to announce that we have collaborated with 1st Day School Supplies to help parents and teachers get the exact supplies needed for next school year without the hassle and aggravation of shopping at Wal‐Mart, Target or Staples. I have personally have found 1st Day School Supplies to be convenient, easy and hassle free! Plus, the prices are competitive! So, this summer as the temperature hits over 100 degrees and lines at the checkout counter are a mile long … we will have already purchased our school supplies from the comfort of my home!
