From July 25-September 11, Payless retail stores will print a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase at OfficeMax, which will be valid until September 18, 2010.

I am thrilled because OfficeMax is giving one of you a new Schoolio backpack filled with a variety of school supplies – including an insulated lunch tote, just in time for back to school!

Every year, for as long as I can remember, my Grandpa (we called him Pappaw) would take me back to school shopping. He would buy me all the markers and crayons that I wanted, new sneakers and backpacks. As I got older it was cool pens, mechanical pencils and highlighters. Once I started college he paid for my textbooks each semester. He passed away my senior year of college, a month after purchasing my last batch of textbooks. He is my favorite back to school memory.

Hello, my favorite memory of back-to-school time is going shopping for school shoes. Every year it would be a different experience. One year I would want the mos tom-boy girl shoes in the store and the next year I would want the most frilly and girly-girl shoe! And I’m sure every year it drove my mom nuts!

446 Candice Tickel August 21, 2010 at 9:06 PM

I just began my second year of teaching this past week, and it was by far my best memory of going back to school. I teach 6th garde, so my very first students are now 7th graders. On my first day back, I had my previous students running to me and hugging me saying they missed me. It was such a great feeling to know that I have made an impact in these students lives. They have since been hanging out in my class after school asking for help on homework and wanting to tell me about their day. I am so thankful to be making a difference.

My favorite back to school memory is finding out my sister and I were in the same class (it was a 2nd/3rd grade class).

Don’t really have any good memories of starting back to school. I was very shy in school and the first day always terrified me. I try to make the start of school exciting for my children.

Having lots of fun in the lunch time with my friends. We bring our food and gossiping during lunch hours were the best memories. Those were the best days of my life :)

I would have to say that my girls’ first day of school is my favorite memory. Seeing them walking in and putting their stuff up. Going to their desk and starting on their worksheets is super cute. I also love seeing them start to make their very first friends. Thanks for the giveaway!

Walking to school with my brother is my favorite memory of school. Or meeting my husband in 6th grade. It was not love at first sight.

626 Kerrie Mayans August 23, 2010 at 1:50 PM

I remember as a kid, my mom always made my sister and I wear the same outfit. It was so lame and I hated looking like her. I was so happy when I went to high school because then no one knew my sister was in 5th grade wearing the same outfit as me.

i loved back to school shopping with my mom. it meant a whole day of driving to Houston, shopping, eating, and then coming home to do a “fashion show” for my dad

632 Nikki Davis August 23, 2010 at 2:10 PM

Shopping for clothes, back before uniform days. Something about new school clothes, made you feel like it was going to be a good year.

Thank you for the entry,
