The back-to-school season is usually all about the kids. Between school supplies, new outfits and lunch money, it seems like the family budget is even tighter than usual.

Which is why we decided to host a giveaway this month for moms! Some of the items are geared towards kids — but at least they won’t cost you a dime!

The contest runs until Friday, August 29th at 5 p.m. EST. We will choose one winner for each prize (for a total of 10 winners) and notify them by email. Prizes are awarded as is — no substitutions or cash value.

Scroll down to see the many ways you can enter! Let’s get started:

They come in hundreds of cute colors and patterns and are affordable, too!
Our prize has been donated by Independent Consultant Monica Hunt of Nevada. She’s happy to help you with any and all of your Jamberry needs! You can find Monica’s Jamberry info on Facebook or her Jamberry site.
