Today was my first day on the Gene and Julie Show on 103.7 Lite FM. It was a blast! Gene and Julie are the best! They are so kind and cheerful…just like they sound every morning on the air.

This week is going to be all about Back to School. I can’t believe that it is that time again! Did you know that the average American spends $84 on the no-frills supplies needed for school! When I heard that I knew that there must be a few ways to save a bit this year. Here are a few of my tips….
-If possible, wait for school to start before shopping. You may not have the selection you hoped for but most items will be on sale or deeply discounted.
-This is tax free weekend in Texas! Take advantage of it when buying school supplies! There is more info at www.window.state.tx.us.
-There are items out there for a penny! Really! Office Max has spiral notebooks for a penny and office depot has 12″ wooden rulers and pocket folders! There are a lot of great specials like this so make the rounds and take advantage of all of them.
-Don’t forget to sign up for the point/perk programs. Many teachers will ask for even more school supplies over the winter break and you will be grateful for your point discounts!
Happy Studies!
