I don’t know about you, but I am beyond pumped for the start of college football season. I take immense pride in my alma mater, the University of Georgia. I bleed red and black and am a die hard DAWG fan. Games kicked off this week, but the DAWGS play tomorrow, so that’s when my season officially starts.
Sadly, I no longer live in Athens (or Georgia for that matter) and won’t be at Sanford Stadium to cheer on my DAWGS in person as they go up against Clemson. Have no fear, I will be participating in the red out, dressed to the nines in my school colors, cheering on my team all the way from Madison, WI.
If I do make it to a game this season, there is one essential item I won’t leave home without: my GirlyGoGarter.
My mom actually discovered GirlyGoGarter while on a buying trip at AmericasMart Atlanta last January. She brought home a couple samples, and instantly, we were hooked. I remember thinking how perfect the GirlyGoGarter would have been for New Year’s Eve – a night where I struggled and scrambled around trying to figure out what bag I could stand to lug around all night. Never again! Since then I have used my GirlyGoGarter at concerts, festivals, or just a night out. Now, I can’t wait to get to Sanford Stadium and use my GirlyGoGarter on GAMEDAY!
As part of my Holiday Gifting Tips, I’ll be scoping out deals and DYIs to help keep your wallet as full as your belly this holiday season. The holidays are the time to keep your eye on the deal. I believe that you don’t have to pay full price for anything (ever.), but this tip is especially essential around the holidays when you’re having to budget for gifts for friends, family, co-workers, and kids. In lieu of my typical Deal of the Day, for the next two months I’ll be sharing deals that are perfect to gift for all those special someones in your life. Today I’ve got deals for girlfriends and your man!
