Back To School!

‘Tis the season. If you aren’t experiencing this as we speak this Monday, you are sure to soon. Gone are the days of camping and vacations and entertaining your kids all day long, but only to be replaced by lunch packing, school supplies, and carpools. There’s been TONS of deals and cute ideas all over the internet for back to school, and I wanted to share some of my favorite ones!

Deals

Ah, Staples, a staple in back to school shopping. Check out their site for all their sales from $7 for 4 dozen #2 Pencils, to $3 for a 24 pack of Crayola colored pencils to $3 for a 10 pack of Crayola markers. Essential items, discounted.

Walmart is also an incredible discount resource that makes life easier by allowing free in-store pickup and even free shipping in some cases. Save yourself some time and check out some of their deals. From $7 4-pack composition books and $7 4-packs of spiral notebooks to $5 for 2 dozen ball point pens they’ve definitely got you covered. Also interesting are their bundles! Prices range for their K-2nd Grade bundles but these allow you to get all the essentials in the styles you’re looking for. Makes it much easier not to overbuy or forget necessary items. Love it!

Back to School purchases aren’t limited to supplies – your growing kids need some new clothes for the new year as well. I always hate splurging on clothes that hardly fit them after a mere year, so I stand by Old Navy as my go-to! They’re stylish and trendy and definitely do not break the bank. They run tons of promotions and discounts and you know you are NEVER paying full price – the best feeling! Old Navy has everything from $20 for a 4-pack of uniform collared shirts to $8 denim – insane!

Back to School Fun

Back to School is also an opportunity to be, well, adorable. I still have pictures from my first day from Kindergarten to my Senior Year of High School. I was annoyed while they were happening, but I truly treasure them now.

I absolutely adore these FREE chalkboard printables – print them, frame them, and voila – adorable.

Thanks, YellowBlissRoad!

Also totally adore MeAndMyInsanity’s idea of simply using a spiral notebook. It’s to theme, it’s cheap, and so, so easy.
