My favorite commercial will always be that old Staples one - you know, the father skipping through the aisles to the tune of "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" while the kids pout? Yup. It's that time of year again...
THEY ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL!
While I know we have mixed feelings about this - the structure, making lunches, etc - all of us are happy to have a little more kid-free time in our day. And to celebrate this WONDERFUL time of the year, I'm teamed up with Westfield North County mall to give one lucky reader a $50 mall gift card and VIP passes to the Unlock the Fun event on August 25th at 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Do you have a Teen or Tween? Or maybe a kid that thinks they are? (raises hand) Then you can't miss this fun BTS event next week!
