Summer is almost over! It’s back to school shopping time!

Summer is almost over, and that means it’s also back to school shopping time!  Stay at home moms and working moms are all excited as the 81 days of kids home from school is coming to an end…

I have 2 boys, 11 years and 8 years old.  This year I have a new 3rd grader and a new middle schooler… and both will be attending new schools.. a fresh new start for both of them.  Ethan my 3rd grader is more nervous, this is his first year going to school on the bus alone without big brother and in a new school.   Hunter the middle schooler is excited to spread his wings and show his independence from younger brother already.

This year I took Ethan shopping at MacArthur Center to pick out his own clothes instead of the hand me downs he usually gets.  This was a fun experience for me to let him pick out his own style and try on clothes to find the perfect outfits!

MacArthur Center has a new program called Oh So Simple Rewards.  And it is very simple to sign up for and use!  For every $250 you spend at the mall..and that is for of the 140 stores there then you receive $10 back.

And at every store I would get an email update with my progress towards the $250.
