carolina pad prize pack giveaway

If you are looking to send your kids back to school in style, look no further than Studio C products from Carolina Pad! I’m not going to lie – when I received these gorgeous products I stole kept several of them for myself to use in my home office. If you look at the image above you can see the range of awesome colors and designs available. I’m planning on using the Studio C 1.5” Hot to Trot Collection Binder and Studio C Fashion Filler Paper to create a household binder in an attempt to organize my life. My 7 year old daughter will be using the super cute Studio C Tutti Collection Laptop Sleeve (available at Best Buy) to house her new Acer Google Chromebook from Staples (that’s a review for another time). She and I are going to divvy up the cool Studio C Notebooks for use at home.

I have been using Carolina Pad products for the last several years, and in addition to their looks I love the functionality and quality of these products!

Carolina Pad has come a long way since 1945 when the founder sold his products out of the back of a truck directly to schools! Today you can find these products in stores such as Target, Walmart, Kmart, Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Staples, Hobby Lobby….. and more! View the Carolina Pad Store Locator to find a store near you.

You can learn more about Carolina Pad and their various brands and products on the Carolina Pad Website, Facebook or Twitter pages.

WIN IT! 1 lucky winner is going to receive a box full of the Carolina Pad Products listed below. Please note that the colors and patterns MAY vary!

• Studio C Spring Fling 5 Subject Notebook, $4.97 available at Walmart stores nationwide
• Studio C Value Notebook, $1.00 available at Walmart stores nationwide
• Studio C 1-Subject notebook available at various retailers nationwide, prices vary (Walmart, Staples, OfficeMax, Walgreens)
• Studio C 1-Subject Premium notebook available at various retailers nationwide, prices vary (Walmart, Staples)
• Studio C Zip-it Comp Book Storage Jacket, prices vary (Walmart, Staples, OfficeMax, Walgreens)
