I haven’t yet made the official announcement yet, but here it is: we’ve decided to enroll Colette in for real kindergarten. I was a bit [extremely] hesitant at first, but it’s actually been a lot of fun starting the process. Have you started back to school shopping yet? We’ve been looking for the right backpacks, lunchboxes– you know, all the right supplies.
We’ve barely begun to scratch the surface so far and already my wallet is feeling the burn. Are you a thrifty family, as well? Who isn’t trying to save a few bucks?
The good news for you is that I’ve been really doing my research, and I’ve got a whole lot of great deals (and even some giveaways!) planned for the upcoming weeks.
Naturally when I think of school I think of reading. I was such a bookworm, there were very few times during my youth that I wasn’t nose-deep in a book. Today I wanted to share with you our experience with ThriftBooks.com, an online used-bookstore that was really made to make your shopping as inexpensive and painless as possible. Thrift Books sells used books at the lowest everyday price on the internet and offer 7 million books with features that help you find out-of-print and second-hand treasures.
Do you have a bookworm in your family? Can you stand to save some money? Here are some features that you may appreciate:
- Reading Rewards – a loyalty program with no annual fee; rewards you with a $5 coupon for every $50 you spend on books.
- Tell-a-Friend – their referral program gives your friends & family a 15% OFF coupon, as a new customer. You also get one for referring them if they sign up within 14 days (if you’re a Reading Rewards member it’s 20%!)
- Wish List – since they’re used books the selection may vary; Wish List will email you the instant an out-of-print book you want comes onto their shelves.
I had fun picking out books for all of the children. I got Charlotte’s Web, an American Girl series (we’re reading Kit first), Secret Garden, and for Luke I picked Catcher in the Rye.
Okay, just kidding. I got that one for my oldest.
