The first place I like to start cleaning is my closet, getting rid of all the chalk-stained, ripped and shrunken-in-the-dryer items. Nothing worse than showing up at an event & discovering that i have a big stain on my shirt or that my socks are showing. The nice thing is that for my efforts i like to reward myself by buying NEW clothes. 😀

I am a big believer in the “dress for success” philosophy and that dressing well can be a big confidence booster. I’m way past school cliques and peer pressure, yet if what I’m wearing & how I look affects my attitude, I can only imagine ho…w kids having a closet that’s back-to-school ready is kind of a big deal. Speaking of deals, I know that money is tight for most parents, so here are some deals and coupons that I found for you guys. Now that’s love!
