So I was driving home the other day with a car full of groceries when I happened to pass a sign that read, ‘Old Navy Grand Opening.’
I didn’t think anything of it at the time because I had only been in an Old Navy once or twice before – and I was just along for the ride. So a couple of days passed and I was driving home with a carload of you-guessed-it when I passed by a congested parking lot full of impatient drivers. People were honking their horns, cutting each other off, stealing parking spaces and … Read More »

Clegg, a major player in the college textbook rental space, is one of the most popular sites on the Web right now.
More precisely, millions of students across 7,000 campuses will be relying on Chegg for cheap textbook rentals. When I went to college I had more limited options. If I wanted to take a course and the book cost $100 I could do one of two things: buy the book or not buy the book. Sadly, the high cost of college textbooks has forced many college students to choose the latter. Then things changed…right around 2007, when Chegg … Read More »
Parties, random hook-ups, dorm, drinking, hang over – all these words remind us of college. I agree…those words speak to the normal college experience. Yet there is much more to college than partying. You do have to study. With that said, most of the cramming for exams occur in dorms, especially for the freshmen. You know what else it means to be a first year college student? Chances are you did some back-to-school shopping for the last time.
Most high school grads don’t look at it in this way; they see it as an opportunity to shop for dorm … Read More »
If I was a carnival barker at an early educational trade show and my job was to get as many back-to-school buyers over to my booth you wanna know how I would do it?
First I would make sure I had an attention grabber – maybe a smoke machine, music and dancers. Yeah that would get a crowd forming. I’d make sure there was a spinning wheel full of prizes to capture those who would otherwise pass by. And last but not least I would throw some promotional lost leaders into the crowd.
Now, if I had to promote … Read More »
Back-to-school shoppers take notice: Overstock.com has a clearance section filled with 3,000-plus unbeatable deals.
Overstock.com, now rebranding as O.co, is one of my favorite bookmarked sites. I appreciate the fact this site also allows you to buy cars, vacations and even insurance, in addition to everything else under the sun, but I’m mainly interested in stealing quality merchandise and saving a bundle.
So it made perfect sense to visit my friends at O.co and see what the latest clearance items were. Lately, I’ve been in the mood to purchase a new carpet steamer…specifically a Bissell. My neighbor has one … Read More »

I know what you parents are thinking: enough already. It’s time to get the children back-to-school and that means it’s time to narrow down the list of essentials.
