Dirt and Noise

WINNER: Congratulations to katecurrem!

Dirt & Noise, the children’s clothing store owned by a Montclair mom of two on Church Street in Montclair, offers a range of affordable, hip, and “too cool for school” clothing and accessories. We know you’re doing your Back to School shopping now, or will start soon, and we also know how much money it all costs. Between clothes, shoes, and supplies for each kid, back to school shopping can break the bank. 

That’s why we are loving this giveaway. Thanks to the generosity of Dirt and Noise, we’re giving away a $150 gift certificate for Back to School shopping at the cool store. I love some of the fall offerings Dirt and Noise is offering. My girls are begging for that grey and black dress and floral leggings outfit.

Entering to win is easy. Just follow these directions:

Tell us your favorite part of Back to School in comments to enter.

    My favorite part of back to school is that my oldest kid is going to school and I get a little bit of me time! I do have a little one still at home but he is at a fun stage of 2.

    My favorite part of back to school is the night after the first day back. The nerves will start to go away and we can all have dinner and talk about our day.

    I am new at this Back to School shopping since my biggest lil’ one is entering Kindergarten! Shopping local will probably make this new process a little more sane!

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
