It's time for another Bloggy Giveaway!!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button



THIS DRAWING IS CLOSED!!

And here at Spookiez Spot we are gearing up for another Not-Going-Back-To-School fall, so to celebrate I am offering a box of school supplies!

Winner will receive a pencil box stuffed with pencils, glue, crayons, erasers, a ruler and a pencil sharpener!



To enter, just leave a comment below, and tell us about your favorite school supply to buy and why? 1 additional chance at the drawing for blogging, or tweeting about the giveaway. Just leave a comment with the link or your twitter name to receive credit!

Personally I love going school supply shopping. I get all happy wandering those aisles of notebooks, folders and boxes upon boxes of fresh crayons. I try to keep my expenditures to a minimum, and take advantage of clearance sales, since we don't need the supplies at any specific time. But it's so hard to pass by those markers and erasers, LOL!

I WILL CONTACT AND POST A WINNER ON MONDAY!!

Now this is a useful giveaway.

My favorite school supplies are notebooks. My kids LOVE their notebooks. They carry them with them everywhere. They draw in them, write in them and tear out paper to share with others.

Now, even my youngest wants his own notebook. He sits there and "draws" in his sisters' and stays focused on it for quite some time.

I've been scouting around looking for deals on notebooks because we go through so many.

Yay, just in time for school shopping! My favorite supply to buy would be pencils - I like to purchase ones with designs (when I can) so the kids can tell theirs apart!

Just Me said...

Hurray! And just in time for school!

I love pens. And finally have a child old enough to be needing them in school! I love to find neat colors, sparkles, comfy gripes...

Kristi said...

I love new markers. There is just something special about markers with the bright wet colors that we don;t have to guess which ones are in the process of drying out. I can't believe it's time already.

Christina said...

We could soooooooooooooooo use this right now!
We buy our stuff at Target and Walmart!

Mother Hen said...

I love to buy pens for 10 cents a pkg, because of the savings. But the actual school supplies I love are the pencils, I love using (and smelling) new pencils.

Mom of TWO Princesses said...

I'm the same way, I just love walking up & down the aisles of school supplies. I'm glad I have one in school now so I can use that as an excuse to buy supplies! ;o) My favorites are spiral notebooks & crayons!

ErinRagan said...

I loooove school supplies, too. I was so happy when my oldest hit school-age so I had an excuse to go "School shopping" again!

My favorite... hmmmm... I've always been a binder fan. I don't think they still make Trapper Keepers, do they?? But when I was a kid, we lived for new Trapper Keepers every year! lol

Kelsey said...

Wow awesome giveaway!

Becca said...

My favorite school supply to shop for are probably notebooks - all the possibilities that they hold for us!

ikkinlala said...

May Canadians enter? I love buying pens. I usually end up with plain black ink because that's what the professors want us to use, but there are so many options in the pen aisle these days that sometimes I buy myself a fun one as a treat.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I love buying the kids the new pouch that goes in their three ring binder. I love to see how they organize all of their things in it, and it's see through and very clean. It's nice to see in the beginning, full of promise, by the end of the year, it probably won't even be in one piece!

Sandy said...

crayons! Coloring is so much fun...for the kids I mean =P

mommy-2-3 said...

I don't really have a favorite since my daughter is starting kindergarden this year...besides I am still shell- shocked over the supply list I received last week. Little did I know you had to buy so many things...like soap,hand sanitizer, baggies (snack and gallon??)a ream of copy paper...oh and my favorite 10 glue sticks. And this is just the begining of the list LOL

PS said...

Hmmm. I'm not school shopping yet, but next year we will start. I know I always loved picking out my notebook and folders!

Charmed said...

I just love school supplies! A lot more as an adult than I ever did as a child! lol. ppreacherswife at gmail dot com

Michelle said...

when I was in school my favorite supply to buy was always a brand new trapper keeper - I enjoyed figuring out how I was going to organize everything :)

Stephanie said...

Oh for me it's pens, I love pens. All different kinds, but I tend to bend towards the Gel type. Thank you for the great giveaway, this would be wonderful for my girls for school.

Tammy said...

I like colored pencils! Our daughter always has to have the biggest set, so she gets the "special" colors! lol! thanks for the chance.

Killlashandra said...

Great giveaway, especially with school starting really really soon. I haven't even begun to think about shopping yet. The most exciting item to buy is usually pens and pencils. Although with the kids, it changes every year. The older they get the more sophisticated their choices are. What happened to horse themed two pocket folders? :)

Thanks!

michelle said...

I always love to buy notebooks, especially since there are so many great designs. There is just nothing like opening your brand new notebook to that very first crisp clean page and then trying to use your best handwriting so you don't mess it up.

My favorite would definitely be crayons. They never look the same after buying them but they are so pretty when you first open the box. The colors are always so vibrant and sharp when you first use them.

Angela said...

I love notebooks; I buy them throughout the year so that my kids can do their extra at home math work in them; they can use them as journals; they can re-write their work in them as a means of studing...very functional!!!

I personally just like all school shopping - all those new markers in pretty colors, notebooks, etc!

My favorite school supply when I was younger was getting that new box of crayons. I always looked forward to opening them and looking at them. Oh, and I know this will sound silly, but the smell of a new box of crayons is just wonderful. Brings back many memories.

Thank you for the wonderful giveaway you are having.
