I don't know about you but I am a succor for cute school stuff. I loved going back to school shopping with my mom. Going back to college is a whole new ball game, especially if you move out and live on your own. I moved away the Fall after I graduated and so that means I was only 18. I had to learn very quick how to budget and manage MY money. Being Miss Independent, I wanted to pay for all my stuff (I owe it to my mom who taught me how to manage money)! One thing that I had to have was a college playbook, meaning I had to write down all my monthly expenses and really budget. Plus if you know the family I came from, a playbook is around my house a lot and I don't just mean for budgeting (my dad is a head football coach). I would not have been able to do it without my playbook. So today I am going to show you a little simple DIY. If you know someone heading off to college this is the perfect gift idea and of course I added some treats.

DIY COLLEGE PLAYBOOK - What you'll need:
Sticker Letters
Sticker Gold Decor
Washi Tape

You really can decorate this however you want, maybe have a theme! 

 After I finished the DIY I added some:

 Diet Dr. Pepper (other flavors Dr Pepper, Dr Pepper TEN, Dr Pepper Cherry, Diet Dr Pepper Cherry, Caffeine Free Dr Pepper Diet Caffeine Free Dr Pepper)
 Sour Cream and Onion Pringles 
Original Pringles 

I am all about snacking and it is always nice to have a little treat to go along with your budget planning and football watching this Fall. This is the perfect gift and so fun to make for your friends or family at college!

Starting August 28th visitors will be able to play a digital football toss game (similar to the real thing at football conference champ game half time) for a chance to win $20,000 in tuition (can be used to pay off student loans!). Dr Pepper will be giving away free prizes as well as an additional $5,000 in tuition to one lucky winner in each market, in select markets at Walmart locations. Go HERE for the times and store listings. #WinTuition
I was able to pick up EVERYTHING for this gift basket from Walmart. I got the Diet Dr. Pepper down the drink isle, and the other snacks down the chip isle. Let me know if any of you try this DIY!
