Today, however, many of those items have given way to technology. Sure, a bottle of glue might come in handy, but it just isn't the same as preparing to start classes with a new tablet or smartphone!
So what's even more fun than that? Having the chance to win them, of course!
And right now AT&T is making that even easier with their What's Cool for School Sweepstakes.
Now through September 16th, AT&T will be featuring a new deal on one of their hottest products every week. Not only will there be deals but they'll be giving away products as well. For those that enter, they will get the chance to win smartphones, tablets, digital picture frames and more!
Entering couldn't get much easier, as you simply have to submit your email address and then sit back and cross your fingers for a message that you're one of that week's lucky winners!
The great prize up for grabs this week is none other than a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone that can help just about anyone stay connected, organized and make getting ready to go back to school a breeze.
What are you waiting for? Head over to AT&T's Back to School Sweepstakes now to not only enter to win amazing products, but to find special offers, great information, and the latest and greatest devices that are cool for school.
I was contacted by M80 to write blog posts on behalf of AT&T and am receiving product in exchange for my participation. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and my own.
