We have all been aware that Back to School is coming!! Well, for some it is here! Running across your social media timelines, TV, radio, newspapers you have watched Back to School sales and suggestions for the last 2 months and if you are like me, I just didn’t want to hear anything about school. I needed a break. So, now we are in the thick of it, can you say you are ready?
This year, I decided this is how I’m rolling:
Recycle last years supplies. Some of the notebooks they barely used and some of their folders are in great condition. Fewer items I have to purchase, whoo!!
They definitely need new book bags because those take a beating every year, but what they don’t need is lunch boxes! I purchased from Lands End last year and I must say, the quality was great and they can withstand another year.
Now that my kids are getting older, I will be purchasing the essential supplies to get them through the first week of school. Why? I am waiting for the REAL list to come home from each teacher. Every year, there is always something additional that needs to be purchased so I’m waiting….(in limbo).
What do you think? Am I onto something? What have you learned over the years? Are you in limbo like me or do you say FORGET IT and purchase everything new every year?
Here’s to an awesome School Year, Parents! – Cute Beltz
Love their backpacks because they are durable and can be used for more than one year! Also, love that they can be engraved with your children’s initials. They are a little pricey, so catch the sale that is going on now!
I have to give it up for Famous Footwear for their great deals. I shopped this deal last year and again this year and was very happy with my purchase. Not only do they carry quality shoes, there is a Back to School BOGO deal happening now. Here’s a little tip for extra savings: if you are a member you get an extra 20% off your purchase! 🙂 Shop happy!
You can’t forget about the “belt!!” Whether your child is sporting new school clothes or wearing a uniform, Cute Beltz can hook them up with a durable, cute belt for the school year. We believe every child should be well accessorized!!
