Welcome to the Back to School Blast!
Getting your family prepared to head back to school, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.
1. Back-to-School Supplies Checklist – Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.
2. Label! Be sure to find some quality, waterproof labels to clearly label your child's items to eliminate school supply mix ups!
3. Plan ahead. For lunches that is. If you know ahead of time what you are going to pack, it will make your life easier in the mornings instead of running around throwing random things into a lunchbox!
4. Watch for coupons – yes! Coupons! There are so many school coupons out there to print – last year I paid $0.04 per box for Crayola crayons and got 20 bottles of glue for FREE that I donated to the school!
5. Shop online. I love websites like Amazon and Target.com for finding back to school deals and it eliminates taking my girls to the big box store where they get distracted by "the princess aisle".
