Back to school with French Toast schoolwear – styles, deals, and more

Back to school is an exciting time.  For those who have a dress code or uniform, it’s especially important to make sure your kids have what they need well before the start of school. There’s not really the option to wear just anything if your child runs out of clean dress-code shirts.

French Toast is a US brand which has the biggest range of scholastic wear for all ages: from preschool through senior year of high school. Besides that, they also have a small but growing line of casual wear, but in this article I’ll be focusing just on the school wear.  I’ve shopped at French Toast a lot before. Today we’ll talk about French Toast and what they do, plus hear about what coupon deals they have going on. More

BLINQ.com review – great deals on well-known brands while helping the environment

Here I’m reviewing US store BLINQ.com, where you can get items for a fraction of the retail price. How does this work? BLINQ partners with well-known retailers to get leftover inventory. Instead of having all of these items just be thrown out, BLINQ gets them and sells them deeply discounted, passing the savings along to you. You therefore can use BLINQ to snag some fantastic deals on items for your family and home (and for yourself too!) While doing so, you have the satisfaction of helping the environment by preventing these good-quality items from being sent to a landfill.

Here is my balanced review of BLINQ based on my shopping experiences there. More
