Excedrin Back to School+Giveaway

It's that time of year again! Many children in the United States have already gone back to school, or some will be starting in the next few weeks.  Parents in every state are buying new clothes, backpacks, and various other school supplies.  Children are either ready and anxious for the school year to start, or are dreading it.  It's important that parents stay organized as they adjust to hectic schedules and spend more time on the go.



While I don't have children, I can still clearly remember back to school season since it hasn't been that many years since I attended.  I looked forward to going clothes shopping and buying all of the needed school supplies.  There's just something about brand new notebooks and planners that make you want to dive right in and learn.  The first few weeks of school are all about settling in and getting re-adjusted back to that school life.  It was always fun to catch up with friends and acquaintances and see how their summer was.  I was always the one getting told to be quiet for talking or laughing too much.  While the first few weeks of school are new and exciting, it can be hard for some.  Children can get migraines and feel nervous and anxious. Parents are even susceptible to migraines too from all of the happenings of the new school year.  Excedrin is there to help make life pain-free and livable.  I'm very lucky that I didn't have migraines while in school.

All of those school supplies can be costly.  I'm sure if you're a parent you've spent a pretty penny filling your child's backpack with the required materials.  In response to this, Excedrin has launched the "Help Your School Excel with Excedrin" sweepstakes.  This is a fun and migraine-free way for five individuals to win $10,000 for their child's school.  For more information about the sweepstakes please visit Excedrin's Facebook page.  How fantastic would it be if you won the cash and were able to supply students with scissors, loose-leaf paper, pencils/pens, markers, glue and so many other needed things.  You definitely would be put up high on a pedestal!

Excedrin knows that readjusting back to the grind isn't easy.  Moms and dads are shuffling kids from one after school activity to the next, all while making sure homework is done and everyone is fed. I feel stressed just reading that sentence! In order to help parents stay organized, hydrated, and migraine-free Excedrin is offering a back to school prize for one lucky winner! The prize pack consists of a 2013-2014 academic planner and pen, a magnetic memo board, and an aluminum tumbler.

That planner will help you keep track of your child's parent teacher conference, the school bake sale, and of course your daughter's prom! Thanks to Excedrin, you'll be organized and staying on schedule in no time!

  6. I always loved going back to school shopping around this time! I can remember going to the different stores with my mom and picking out clothing and shoes/sneakers-while the styles back then in the 70's and 80's were different from today I sure wish I still fit into the same size today so I could wear all the nice things my daughter does!

  18. My back to school memories really aren't very nice. I absolutely hated shopping for clothes...The pens, pencils, etc shopping was okay though. I was always super anxious/nervous leading up to the first day of school and for about a week after :( I always liked school, the actual learning/homework, but not the crowds.
