Give It Away; Give It Away; Give It Away Now

Y'all know that I'm obsessed with office supplies. When I was in school, my obsession was school supplies, and that love has only grown as I've transitioned into the "real world." Thankfully there are more options than ever to help me beautify my workspace. From precious file folders, monogrammed note pads, flower-shaped Post-Its, colorful planners... the possibilities are endless. When you're on the kind of budget that I am, though, you need supplies that are cute, but also cost savvy. Enter Carolina Pad. These goodies satisfy every craving and wish I could have for organizational, writing and office tools.

Carolina Pad is currently sold in Target, Walmart and other retailers, and has been featured on episodes of 90210, Greek, and 10 Things I Hate About You. If that doesn't tell you enough about how amazing these products are, consider that both Miley Cyrus and Carrie Underwood have been spotted out and about with Carolina Pad products.

Prettifying my desk currently?

Simply Chic file folders (completely drooling over the houndstooth print), organizational folder, and note pad

Pattern Play decorative tab dividers

Whimsical Flower composition book and folderHot Chocolate binder and notebook

So what does this mean for you??? Well, Carolina Pad has been gracious enough to offer one lucky Polka Dots & Protein Bars reader with $35 worth of merchandise of their choice (and considering how incredibly reasonable everything is... that's a lot)! Seriously, does it get any better? Since this is one of my favorite giveaways to date, you'll have multiple chances to enter. Here's how:

1 entry - check out Carolina Pad's Web site and leave a comment telling me your favorite collection.
2 entries - be a follower of PD&PB and Hems & Hers.
3 entries - be a follower of SuZeeBee.
4 entries - follow Carolina Pad on Twitter.
5 entries - follow me on Twitter.
6 entries - blog or Tweet about this giveaway.

The deadline to enter is Sunday, September 27. The winner will be announced Monday, September 28. Good luck and get excited!

Cute giveaway! I could use some good organizational stuff for my office (that's cute, as well!) My favorite collection is Simply Chic followed closely by Whimsical Flower, but I do like the Prints Charming and Hot Chocolate, as well. Indecisive much?
I follow you and Hems & Hers and I'm heading over to follow SuZeeBee, as well.
I don't do the whole Twitter thing.
