Carolina Pad - Review & Giveaway (2 Winners!)

**Contest Closed**
I've been in love with Carolina Pad ever since I first happened upon their website.  The company sells fresh, modern office supplies or as their tagline states, "ordinary products. extraordinary design."  You might be surprised to know that this company was founded back in 1945.  But it wasn't until the year 2000 when the company found their niche by incorporating fashion sense into their practical product offering. 


If I had spent more time in the office supply section at Target, I'd know that Carolina Pad products are sold there.  You'll also find their products on Wal-Mart, Walgreens and Staples shelves.  The company attributes their success to sweating the small stuff.  By paying strict attention to detail and keeping up with the latest trends, they manage to stay on top.
I received an assortment goodies from Carolina Pad, all pictured above.  What student wouldn't love to break out these supplies in class?  No matter what your age, everyone can appreciate a break from the boring old supplies of yesterday.  It almost makes me want to go for more schooling.  Almost.
BUY IT!  Carolina Pad products would make a great Valentine's Day gift for the student in your life! Get 10% off with code: BACK2SCHOOL


WIN IT!  TWO readers will win the same semester pack I received which includes:
·         Three-ring binder – MSR $4.99
·         Tab divider – MSR $2.49
·         1-subject notebook – MSR $2.99
·         3-subject notebook – MSR $4.99
·         Pencils – MSR $1.99
·         Pen – MSR $1.99
·         Composition Book – MSR $2.49
