#Win Wilko Back to School Goodies





Before I start my yacking, if any of you have children who are twiddling their thumbs today and tomorrow, send them  to Wilko's facebook page.


 They are running a Facebook app until 31st August where they’re asking little ones to design their own pencil case, upload it to the app and the winning design will be made into a real design to be sold in stores.

To enter, people just need to visit the Wilko Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/LoveWilko/app_489669227789097 and like them to take part in the app 


With the kids starting school and the bigger ones going to uni soon, its the inevitable trek around the shops buying new uniform and stationery supplies.  I hated mine going back but to ease the pain,a shopping trip to buy new lunch boxes, pencil cases, pens and new themed goodies always softened the blow.


Wilko's is especially good, Paige's uni supplies have mainly been bought there, we have a lovely store, great for browsing and while Paige filled a trolley with stationery,pots and pans, I stocked upon new kitchen bits and cleaning products.


Wilko's have sent us some of their new range of stationery, from their Friendly Fairy and Galaxy Gang collections, these are for the younger students and while the children will be bowled over by the colourful designs,the Mums and Dads will be bowled over by the prices. The range above starts from 40p, the arts sets are an amazing £1.75.
There are other cute and trendy designs online and in store, great for Grandparents buying grandchildren gifts.

Wilko's are also giving away a mini goody box containing a selection of their fantastic stationery to give away to one lucky follower. (Please note the items you will receive may be different from the ones you see above!) 

To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter entry form and let me know in a comment what you have bought or still need.  Do you like the Friendly Fairy or the Galaxy Gang or one of the other designs?  Personally I love the Nostalgia Collection here


Oh and give @LoveWilko  a follow on Twitter to keep up with all the latest Wilko's chat,thereis often a giveaway or a bargain announced!  Giveaway closes at midnight on September 12th 2013.  Good luck!
