Last month I was honored to be a part of a “pay it forward event” with Gutzy Gear . A group of bloggers recived $25 to spend toward a backpack and school supplies. Being a couponer, I knew this was going to be so much fun because we can stretch $25 a Very Very long way! The best part-once I filled the backpack with all the necessities, this backpack was DONATED to a child in need!
Let me start off telling you a little about Gutzy Gear.
Gutzy Gear is a great, new way to express yourself by customizing your backback, sports duffel, messenger bag, and more! Gutzies are cool looking removable patches. Gutzies stick to a Gutzy strap cover that you put wherever you want to go Gutzy! With 56 Gutzies in a series and new Gutzies constantly being introduced, you can collect and trade a world of Gutzies. But Gutzy Gear is even more… Gutzy Gear is a lifestyle! Gutzy Gear is about showing the world who you are, taking chances and being the best YOU you can be.
You can see my oldest on the far right chose pizza and a smiley with headphones for his back pack! This pic was taken the first day of school, so my other 2 kiddos in the pic didn’t have their Gutzy Gear yet-had to check the uniform policy first 😉
Now-onto my shopping & donation! This opportunity could not have come at a better time! Our church was participating in a HUGE back to school event. We were stuffing backpacks, donating supplies, and we even took kids around to shop for new outfits at Walmart with all of the money that was raised in our community. Haircuts were given for free, fingerprints were taken, it was a super fun day. So, my supplies went directly to the church!

12 packs of Glue Sticks (3 in each pack!) .25/pack
8 packs of crayons .25/pack
