Summer is flying, isn’t it? This is the first year that my son is heading back to school in mid August. Hard to believe that his first day is in just a few weeks. It’s time to start planning! Stocking up for back to school supplies and clothes can be heavy hitting to our budgets, that’s for sure. I’ve been checking out the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE as a budget friendly tablet option that’s perfect for busy parents and students alike. It also has a fair share of fun activities to enjoy. What’s hard work without a little play too? This post was sponsored by ASUS and Walmart. All opinions are mine.
