I’m so happy I was able to participate in the BTS (Back to School)Pay it Forward event. I love to save money, and I love being able to have the chance to give back to the community. I was given $25 to get a backpack and see how much school supplies I could fill it with.

The backpack was donated to a little boy at a local school called “Foreign Language Academy.” The rest of the school supplies was donated to a local back-to-school event. Here’s a list of what I got, and how much I spent:

6 packages of papermate pens $0.29 ea.

6 packages of papermate mechanical pencils $0.29 ea.

6 pencil boxes $1.00 each

1 Backpack $2.79

3 Pencil Pouches $0.01 ea.

1 box Crayola colored pencils $1.00

3 boxes Office Max colored pencils $0.25 ea.

3 boxes of pencils $0.25 ea.

6 packages of highlighters $0.50 ea.

6 packages of dry eraser markers $0.50 ea.

15 Office Depot Notebooks $0.01 ea.

40 Office Depot 2 Pocket Folders $0.01 ea.

5 packages BIC pens $1.00 ea. (FREE used five $1.00 off coupons)

6 packs of Glue Sticks $0.50 ea.

6 1 inch Binders $0.50 ea.

5 packs Office Max $0.01 ea.

1 bottle white glue $0.25 ea.

4 bottles mini hand sanitizer $0.10 ea.

4 packs 100 index cards $0.50 ea.

1 pack scissors $1.00

15 Office Depot Rulers $0.01 ea.

Total Spent = $28.20 (it’s over the $25 but not by much)

I’m very grateful to have participated in this event. I hope that the little boy likes his backpack, and I hope that the rest of the school supplies will be put into great use by the students receiving it.
