Do I dare to even say it? I know, those four words that no one wants to hear in the summer. Back to School Shopping.
Honestly, the summer is the perfect time to start because unlike me, I waited two weeks before school started last year to get my children their school supplies. It totally was a wrong move on my part because I ended up swarming around different stores looking for the best prices. I actually went to five different stores looking for certain school supplies and still ended up not getting what I needed. Not to mention, the cost of gas running around to multiple stores. I mean, is it really worth it in the end. I’m afraid it’s not.
I guess that saying goes, the early bird gets the worm. So starting back to school shopping is a must for me this year and guess what? I did all my shopping in one store last night.
I grabbed the things that I needed, plus I picked up my kids school’s list that was on display at Walmart. Talk about convenience! One stop shopping for all your back to school needs.
Let’s face it, school supplies are a necessity for your children and their classroom teachers. In the beginning of the year, teachers create a wish list for the students which is very helpful for parents. Granted, many items on those lists can be easily found right at your local Walmart store. It’s nice to see as a parent a stock pile of supplies in the classroom. Having the right tools such as pencils, markers, copy paper, crayons and even Kleenex can really help your children’s teacher.
Another way to help your school when shopping is looking for those Box Tops on the packages. I will admit, I normally go for those instantly because by me purchasing items with Box Tops, it will help my children’s school. When shopping at Walmart, you can find Kleenex, Scott Extra Soft Bath Tissue and even Viva Paper Towels with Bonus Box Tops. Your getting double the points. Which is fantastic!
So the next time your heading to Walmart, grab your list and pick up your children’s school supplies. Be prepared for their big day back to school.
