Thanks to Great Clips for sponsoring this post, but my love for supporting teachers is all my own.
I can’t believe it’s already time to start Back to School shopping! For us, Charlie is starting pre-school this year. I’m honestly not sure if we have to do any back to school shopping for him or not yet, but I’m sure we’ll find out at our meeting next month.
I do remember shopping when I was younger and we had to have all the Lisa Frank supplies. Remember them? Then as we got into high school, we were required to have that really expensive calculator. You know which one I’m talking about. I remember my father used his Dremel tool to etch my name into the back. If you lost that thing, big trouble!
Parents have to spend a lot of money getting their kids all the gear they need (and some they just want) for back to school. Great Clips is giving you the chance to win your back to school checklist! To enter, just upload a picture of your school supplies list to the #GREATLIST contest for your chance to win your entire list! There’s a new winner every day and prizes are shipped right to your front door. For complete details, please visit the #GREATLIST contest page.
If you win, not only will you save money by receiving your back to school supplies for free, but you won’t have to drag the kids out to the crowds for back to school shopping!
Did you know that on average, teachers spend $1,000 out of their own pocket for school supplies and classroom resources? That makes our back to school lists look a little better, right?
Great Clips has already helped two teachers fulfill their lists and makeover a classroom:
Take a look at the video of the whole makeover. Which room would you want your child learning in?
Great Clips now has a Check-In app – This service lets you add your name to the waiting list at your local Great Clips salon. It’s not an appointment – what it does is let you add your name to the list before arriving at the salon to help save you time. I know that with little ones, that extra 5-10 minutes of wait time can make all the difference! From July 15, 2014 – September 5, 2014, with every download of the check-in app, Great Clips will make a donation to AdoptAClassroom.org (up to $20,000).
Did I mention that when you enter the #GREATLIST contest, you’ll receive a $2 coupon off the already low price of a Great Clips hair cut. How’s that for back to school savings?
While you’re out picking up your school supplies, if you’re able to grab a few extra, I know the teachers would appreciate the donation. And don’t forget: You can donate for free just by downloading the Check-In app from Great Clips!
Here’s a few ideas for back to school gifts for teachers:
