Back to School Supplies Haul VLOG


Go shopping with us! We went to many popular retail stores to find school supplies this year and I stocked up. We picked up some supplies to donate to the school supply drive our neighborhood is having for Military Troops families. I found various quality items and some amazing deals.

Back to School Haul with SWEET HAUTE

We shopped at Walmart, Target, Base Exchange, Dollar Store, Dick's Sporting Goods, and TJ Maxx. We found a lot of goodies to get the kids well prepared for the school year ahead, we still have not started school yet. Our daughter starts Kindergarten this year;(.....tear!
Yes, school hasn't started but I shopped early and often so that I would not be doing anything last minute. Here the schools let out for summer in mid-June and do not start back up until September. I shopped the sales and the Tax Free days they had at Target. There were also a few days they had great sales going on at the Base Exchange too.

 This Hello Kitty spiral notebook is so adorable because it has little candies on it and she is peeking out over the pocket....so SWEET:)

Target had these beauties...

 Hello Kitty SCENTED folders.....at Target.

 Skateboard spiral notebooks at Target.

Can you spot the Diamonds Supply Co looking logos and Retro Stereos.....love

The large aisles on days that are not busy, usually Tuesday.....either go EARLY or after 7pm (if it's a 24hr store)...

Aren't these HK lunch bags so DARLING?! I love her and the nostalgia behind her brand. These were at Walmart.
TIP: If you go to TjMaxx or Ross before buying lunch boxes, you will find many HK and other exact lunch boxes for a lot cheaper.


The Under Armour backpack was on sale at Dick's Sports Goods, one of our favorite stores that always is a little too expensive so we only purchased a few items there.

 Hello Kitty matching lunch box and backpack that clips together for your convienence....

Hello Kitty embroidered logo...

 Quality metal hardware, zippers, zipper pull hearts.

 Hello Kitty face sewn into backpack padding behind straps....

Water compartments on each side...

Matching lunchbox kits comes complete with sandwich box and shoulder strap...


 Under Armour backpack for our son, with embroidered logos and quality hardware that should last a very long time!!
 The of course you have to buy the class supplies too, we found many items on sale and Tax Free days so that really helped out. Target also was giving away a $5 gift card if you spend money for a certain amount of school supplies.

Enjoy and good luck!

Clothes Pin DIY Storage

Hi Sweethautes, today I wanted to share with you a project idea that can assist you in getting organized in the Laundry Room. My wooden Clothes Pin DIY Storage /  that doubles as decor. Here you have a simple and realistic DIY project that can be done in about 15 minutes or less! This is a perfect way to organize your laundry process, yet decorate in a functional way. We all like pretty decor, yet what makes it even better...is when the decor can be beautiful AND useful! Well let me tell you, this lady is not just for looking at....she is also here to help! I made this Clothes Pin Storage system for my fresh and whimsical Laundry room, that I am in the process of making over. 
Reveal coming in the near future.... ;)

She is a wire mannequin, also known as....maiden form, or dress form with a BOLD clothes pin skirt... Fabulous and functional!

Supplies:
Wire Dress Form / Mannequin
Spray Paint
Clothes Pins

Pink Apple Mango Tango Gain scented DIY Laundry Detergent which is also High Efficiency {HE} Safe, as well as....saves you tons of money while using many natural ingredients!!
Love that.... 

Make sure to pin her on Pinterest ;)

 Here is where she is living now, atop the dryer close enough the clothes line where I can hang dry our dress clothes and delicate items. And if you know me, you know I hang dry a TON of our clothes!! ....and tediously fold them perfectly with design showing so I can find items quickly, does anyone know a faster way to fold perfectly?

 If you aren't already following me on Pinterest, make sure to follow along!!!

Hope you enjoy!
