EZ School Supplies: Giveaway!

EZ School Supplies really makes it "easy" for parents to order school supplies, AND for your school or organization to make 10% back in cash or more supplies. (Hello? PTO anyone?)

Here's how it works:

1. Your school or organization signs up for the EZ School Supplies donation program, and uploads teacher or grade level supply lists.

2. Parents log on to, and order the supplies they need. No more waiting in line for hours at Walmart, and getting into a cat fight with another mom over the last 3-ring binder with a view window! You know that would be all over Facebook!

3. You can have the products delivered to the school for free, or to your house and pay shipping. Your child's supplies will come to the school in a box with their name on it. There is NO SORTING of products involved!

4. Your School will get 10% of the revenue back in cash donations or more supplies. You could even donate the school's donated supplies to less fortunate children in the school or community.

5. If your school doesn't sign up, you can still get great school supplies sent to your door.

EZ School Supplies was involved with the 1st Battalion in Baghdad and Mosul , as they refurbished six schools for the Iraqi children using their services and supplies. They have also worked with other organizations and foundations nationally and internationally.

So, what kind of supplies do they have online? And are they quality products? Well, they sent me an EZ Pack, full of school supplies to check out, and it was great! They have tons of name brands to choose from, the same stuff you can wait in line for at the store. Here's what I received, (and you can, too - keep reading!):

a pack of 11x17 Construction Paper
10 Classic Crayola Markers
1 flexible plastic pocket folder
3x5 index cards
a Spacemakers storage box
a flexible ruler (my daughter was begging for one of those the other day!)
name labels
highlighter/pens/and eraser
a pad of graph paper
5 dividers where you can insert your own paper
looseleaf paper
a spiral notebook
a 1.5" 3-ring-binder with an insertable window. (no cat fights on Facebook)
a pair of Fiskars kid scissors, with a cover

And the surprise treat: the bubble wrap for the kids to pop!!! Also, the box doubled as a keepsake box for your child's work they bring home this year! Woot! (keepsake box is not available with all orders)

In my opinion, this is really a win-win for parents and schools. And this is Real Life Review, so you know I'll tell you what I really think.

Here's what you can do to win an EZ Pack for yourself:

  • Leave a comment on this post saying what school supply you would get into a fight over. (Don't worry, I won't put it on Facebook)
  • You get an extra entry if you subscribe to Real Life Review (Click Here)
  • You get another entry if you email this article to your school principal or PTO president!
This contest will run through Friday, July 18, and I'll post the winner on Saturday morning.

WOW I love the fact that we can order a bulk amount of school supplies online, this is a great find!

I'm a big fan of all Crayola, my sons are young, but I've been educating them from home ever since they opened their eyes, my oldest is getting ready for Pre-K.

I love graph paper... probably because my dad always had it around the house when I was a kid.

Rhen @yestheyareallmine said...

I love that I could order online and not spend 30 bucks in gas just to get to the store!!
I am looking for more markers, a label maker, stickers, list could go on and on. :)

Katie said...

I would "fight" over the 3 ring binder! We had the hardest time finding them last year for my middle schooler!

Love the idea of ordering them all together! Love the idea of winning them for free even better! LOL
