Why I chose Campus Book Rentals for my college kids

The month before my daughter began attending college we ordered all her required books from the college book store. The invoice amount was over $1000. Add that to all the other expenses and I thought, holy cow this is going to be more than I thought. Science books are expensive. For three years, that's six semesters of bookstore invoices like the first one.

One day near the beginning of her last year of college my daughter shared a conversation she had  with a classmate and she said she rented her text books. What? Rented books?  We look into renting college text books and the savings were unbelievable. We saved well over half of what we were paying buying them from the bookstore. Just think of the amount of money we could have saved for six semesters. I am so glad we know now to rent college books since daughter number 2 is now in her first semester. Campus Book Rentals offers Free Shipping and returns which is great because books can be heavy and expensive to ship.

If you have a college student or a soon to be college student-rent their college text books!!!

and that's not all- you can even rent the text books you own to other students.You earn money each time your book is rented from which is part of Campus Book Rentals. I remember paying full price for books when I went to college and at the end of the semester during final exams I sold back books that were not in my major. I did not get much cash back from selling a handful of books back, not even enough to cover the price of one book I bought that semester. Rent Back is a super good idea! I Wish it was around in my college days.

Campus Book Rentals web site is easy to use. As soon as you go to the site there is a search bar you can type in what book you are looking for by name, ISBN number or author, even key words. They also have live customer support and flexible renting periods. Which is good, you don't want to have to return the text book before the semester ends. Head over and check them out!

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it?

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
