Back to School Shopping and Saving (+ a $200 Giveaway!)

It’s hard to even think about summer coming to an end, as it feels like we just got started here.  We are soaking up endless sunshine (going on 6 weeks with zero rain!), playing at every beach, blowing through tubes of sunscreen, and playing a LOT of baseball.  Sometimes the summer can feel exhausting because of the feeling that we need to DO ALL THE THINGS.  Because like it or not, the reality is that winter gloom is going to return eventually, and the only thing that gets us through it is the promise of these dreamy few months of super late sunsets, weekend boat rides, and trips to our favorite lake.
