Giveaway: Astrobrights for Back To School

The first week of school is behind us here. What a FUN week! It was filled with emotions from me and the kids, last minute shopping, learning the bus stop times, the teachers, etc. It can be exciting and sad all at the same time. For parents, it’s time to celebrate! The kids are going back to school and the only thing standing in the way of utter freedom –- the back-to-school shopping list. Can you believe that last year Americans spent $70 billion on back-to-school and college merchandise? That’s why I love to tell you guys about sales – WOW – that number is HUGE. And that number is only going to soar this year.

Our Back To School lists are usually the same ole stuff, so this year I was excited to learn about Astrobrights Paper. It’s FUN. It’s bright, bold and ready to make your child’s next project pop or your lunch box notes extra special. How about those notes to the teacher that always seem to get lost…they won’t get lost when they are on Astrobrights! Astrobrights boasts high quality shine and strength, perfect for a rainy day (we gets lots of those in the summer time here in FL!) arts and crafts at the house.


Standout kid and parent-approved Astrobrights products include:

- 23 eye-catching colors of high-quality, printer-friendly paper
- Big, bold Posterboard to help your child’s next project really stand out
- 3-Ring Binder Paper available in college and wide ruled that will inspire organization in every notebook
- Self-Adhesive paper that looks professional and makes labeling a breeze

My kids LOVE the bold paper options – they were actually amazed that it was for them!  They thoughts it was ‘fancy” :)  My picture doesn’t do the colors justice – they are very FUN!  Right away they started with craft projects, seeing what colors markers look different on the fun colors of paper…Steven even made a paper airplane or two.  He swears that Astrobright paper flies better than any other paper I have :)  My personal favorite is the Self-Adhesive paper – as a blogger I have lots of paperwork!  Different store deals, my receipts, contact from the wonderful companies I work with etc., etc. this paper makes labeling my folders a breeze…AND I can see them :)

Guess what?  Astrobrights is also hosting two FUN promotions on Facebook!


You can WIN $30,000 for Your School and Back to School Gift Cards – Astrobrights is hosting two online campaigns through September to inspire creativity and give a few lucky winners some extra spending money this back to school season. The “Make Something Astrobright!” and “Give a Brighter Year!” will give consumers an opportunity to win gift cards ranging from $100-$500 and one lucky winner will be awarded $30,000 in school supplies for the school of his or her choice. Isn’t that FUN? Can you imagine all the people you could help if you won? What an amazing opportunity. Register for both at the Astrobrights Facebook page.

Astrobrights products are available for purchase at Staples, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Target and Michaels!
