Back to School With Jane

This is a sponsored post. Thanks to Jane for providing the free back to school items for review! All opinions are my own.

Jane is a daily deal site for the whole family. I got the opportunity to shop on Jane for some back to school items. I bought some backpack tags and a first/last day of school card set. Shipping took a little while on the tags – because they’re custom – and the cards arrived very quickly. I’m very happy with the quality of the items that I ordered. And my kids are super excited to have some cool Back to School items.


First off, have you ever tried to get 3 excited kids to stand still for a picture? It’s basically impossible! I did get their bag tags attached to their bags but they weren’t shy about moving around while I was photographing. They’re apparently all ready to go!

They’re a nice thick plastic and my kids names and my phone number are printed on so I don’t have to worry about the information getting lost somehow. This is perfect for if my child looses their backpack or if my child gets lost while at co-op, preschool, or other school activities.

They each picked out their favorite color for the tag. And I think that the tags match well with their backpacks.

Plus the kids are super excited to have their names on their backpacks. I’m sure their teachers are going to appreciate this as well!

The next item I ordered was the First Day of … / Last Day of… cards. The front of the card has The First Day and the back of the card has The Last Day. They come in a deck with preschool to college so I’m basically set for the rest of my life!

I just love the bright colors on these cards! Though, after we took pictures, the kids wouldn’t let me have them back. They insisted on hanging their posters on their walls.


I’m fairly certain preschool is going to have their hands full with him. I was going for a nice picture and this is what I got!


She’s all ready for first grade. Her reading and math have both actually improved over the summer so she’s definitely ready to have a great first grade year!


And this girl is all ready for fourth grade! I’m not sure I’m ready. Seriously, how do I have a fourth grader already? It seems like just yesterday she was a baby.

We had bunches of fun browsing Jane and finding some fun Back to School items. They even have some back to school t-shirts that I suggested to the kids but they thought the posters were way cooler for some reason and since it’s all about them being excited about getting back to School, I got them what they requested.

My Favorite Online Deal Sites

Every so often I like to make a list of my favorite online deal sites. These sites tend to change fairly often just because I find that usually when a site first starts up they have great deals and then as time goes on the deals are no longer that great.

My Habit – This site is run by Amazon and while I think the deals are sometimes good and sometimes bad, shipping is always free. On most deal sites shipping isn’t free and shipping is often more expensive than the item I want to purchase. My Habit has men’s, women’s, children’s, and home.

Sneak Peeq – My latest favorite. They have home, attire, and food. Some of the sales have free shipping and some don’t. If you order one thing you get free shipping on the rest of the site for 24 hours. You can only view the prices on 20 items a day, but they have unique things, and I’ve gotten some really great deals off of here. ($2 for two cotton kitchen towels).

Zulily – Children and women’s clothing, toys, and educational items. Every now and then they run a free shipping deal if you order so much. I don’t order off of here often because I don’t like paying shipping but their deal prices are pretty good and if you find several things that you want the shipping doesn’t seem so bad.

The Mini Social – Children’s clothing, toys, etc. I like their deals but I don’t like to pay shipping so I don’t order from here often but when I’m looking for a deal on some child item I just have to have, this is a pretty good site.

The Foundary – Home, and sometimes toys. They often carry expensive brands and even discounted I’m not willing to pay for them, but they also have sales that I really like the prices. I’ve purchased from here several times this past year. When I’m looking for something for my house this is a great site to find something unique and discounted.
