School Zone

With a couple of weeks left till the start of school we were looking for something to help get them back in the school mode, a refresher of sorts. The School Zone Publishing Company has served as the leaders in early education resources for the last 36 years, marketing workbooks and flashcards that make learning fun.

Everyone loves a care package. And what’s better than a care package of sorts that helps save you money, especially on a tight college budget!

PINCHme will learn what you like and offer samples that benefit you. Then, every third Tuesday of the month, sign into your profile and pick samples you are eager to try.

The products included might be needed essentials like costly laundry detergent or that latest beauty product you’ve been dying to try. PINCHme is perfect for a college student allowing them the fun of a monthly package, the surprise of what products are inside and some needed savings. 


This year my older kids are in need of a few costly tech gadgets. At you can find affordable pre-owned devices like MacBooks, smartphones, tablets and more that won’t put you over budget. Each device found on must pass a 30-point inspection and comes with a 30-day risk free return policy. 

Also, Gazelle allows for trade-ins. So if you’re looking for a few extra dollars for those costly school supplies, or a college student looking to make a few bucks. Check out Gazelle and see what they can offer for your old device.
