Staples Offers More for Teachers


I’ve been working off and on the past few week to get my preschool classroom ready for my new group of children! I’ve “refreshed” bulletin boards, replaced broken storage containers, added to my library, and gotten new Sharpies (I love them!) I want an organized, visually pleasing space for my little ones to “live” in this school year. We’ll spend more time in our room than in our homes, so we want it to be a place we enjoy!

Most teachers spend more than $400 of their own money each year to provide supplies and materials for their classrooms. During Staples Teacher Appreciation Week, teachers can get an exclusive coupon that provides 40 percent back in Staples Teacher Rewards on popular items including school supplies, teaching and art supplies as well as cleaning and supplies for the classroom from brands teachers love such as Sharpie, 3M and Crayola.


The discount applies to in-store purchases only, made from Sunday, August 2 through Saturday, August 8, and excludes technology, Staples Less List & Extreme Deal offers. The Refer a Fellow Teacher offer extends the savings to other educators.

In addition to the 40% back in Staples Teacher Rewards, teachers can use the Staples Less List, the back-to-school 110% Lowest Price Guarantee and Extreme Deals to save even more!


For this week only (August 2 through 8), Staples Teacher Rewards members can purchase a customizable Staples brand teacher planner for only $24.99 (regularly $39.99) with discount code, online only.

Teachers can download their 40% back in Staples Teacher Rewards coupon and find information on the customizable Staples brand teacher planner at

Label Daddy gets you ready to go back to school!

label daddy

It’s back to school time, and with 2 little ones in daycare, that means a labeling frenzy!  Backpacks, lunchboxes, water bottles, extra clothes, sippy cups, spoons, sandwich containers….everything!  If you send it to daycare and you want to see it again, IT MUST BE LABELED!    Thank goodness for Label Daddy!!  I was super excited to see that they had Minnie Mouses labels since she’s a favorite here.  And there was more than 1 Minnie design, meaning each girl has her own design but still gets Minnie!

imageSavannah gets yellow labels and Jillian gets white.


And look how many there are!!!!  I can label everything and still have some left over for things like dance shoes, dance bag, and things around the house.  Our preschoolers gets to have water bottles for after outside play and Jillian is SO proud of her My Little Pony water bottle.  I’m sure she would make sure everyone knows its hers, but just in case…


These labels are super durable peel-and-stick washable labels — they’re washer/dryer safe, microwave safe, dishwasher safe and UV resistant! Label Daddy labels are also fun and attractive. You design your own labels! Pick from tons of colors, sizes and logos, including Disney and Marvel characters, MLB, NBA, and NHL team logos, other sport and fun logos, and more.  These labels are made in the USA and shipped directly to you worldwide.

These are a must have for back to school!

New Dial Rewards Program

Dial Rewards is a new, easy and fun way to interact with the Dial brand, with a chance to win huge prizes. As a member you win & gain points for participating in various monthly activities. These points can be used for chances to win exciting prizes like a $10,000 cash sweepstakes, gift cards, Dial products and more!

As a member of the program, points are accumulated by purchasing product, playing games, watching videos, participating in surveys and logging into the website each day. Each month the activities, point values and prizes can change. How fun, right?

It’s super easy to sign up and you can start earning points immediately.  There are a couple of different ways to earn…by watching videos (short commercials), taking surveys, purchasing products and sharing with your friends.  You also get points each time you sign in.  I racked up quite a few point immediately.

When I went to spend points, I was a little disappointed to find that you “spend” your points for entries in to instant drawings instead of “cashing in” for gift cards or prizes.  So you “spend” your points and there’s a possibility that you won’t get anything at all.  But hey, I’ll keep trying!  Maybe I’ll win big.  But I doubt it.

You can sign up for Dial Rewards and try your hand at winning big.  Use the code:  LF2MN when you sign up so I’ll get credit!

**Purex Insiders is rewarding the top referrer with a gift card.  Using my code gains me entries toward this gift card.

“I do it, Mama”

If you have a toddler, then you’ve heard those words.  Probably more than you want to hear them!  My almost 2-year-old says them at least 5 times a day.  She wants to do everything herself…pull up her shorts, brush her teeth, use the spoon, open the fridge, crawl in her car seat.  Of course it takes her 10x longer to do it than if I just do it for her, but I’m working really hard on giving her more independence and building her confidence by letting her do things by herself.  The hardest thing for me is letting her feed herself at meal time…not because I enjoy trying to feed her while I’m eating my meal, but because I don’t enjoy cleaning up after mealtime.  How does someone so cute make such a huge mess??????

Savannah and I recently got the opportunity to try out the Inside Scoop Suction Bowl & Suction Section Plate from The First Years.  She was too excited to get her own plate.  I usually just put her food out on her tray because she dumps her plate anyway.  She was a little perplexed that it was firmly stuck to her tray and she couldn’t dump it!  Score for The First Years!


She had taco meat, taco shell broken into pieces for scooping, and salsa.  I also gave her a spoon to use for scooping.  The Inside Scoop section plate has curved sides to help get the food on to the spoon or fork.  This is awesome because usually her fingers help the food get on the spoon…which kinda defeats the purpose of the spoon.  Then curved rim is removable, so when she masters utensils, she can have a “regular” plate.


My favorite part is the suction base that keeps her from flipping the plate and all its contents.  The sections are pretty cool too.  She isn’t picky, but her older sister is and the sections keep the food from touching and getting mixed together.   She still has a long way to go to get the whole spoon thing down, but the plate sure seemed to keep the mess contained to her face and tray instead of her lap and the floor.  I don’t mind letting her use her spoon if this is all I have to clean up afterwards!
