Forget the holidays, the back to school shopping list is the most important and wide-ranging list of the year. Somehow, just a few months after the last school year ended, everything has to be updated or replaced. (And by “somehow” we mean active kids basically destroy clothes and supplies in the span of just a few months). There are back to school sales scattered across stores and sites, so an all-in-one back to school supplies spot could not be more essential for busy parents (and by that we mean literally all parents).
Raising children is complicated, and so many important decisions are incredibly personal. Preparing a child to go back to school with the right school supplies and other items should not be one of those complicated processes. Instead of being overwhelmed, take a step-by-step, layered approach. First, get them excited for their first day with some fresh back to school outfits, including new back to school shoes (more important than ever) and stylish back to school clothes (consult your kids on the stylish part if possible). By strategizing around back to school clothes sales, you can make sure your child looks fresh and feels comfortable until their next growth spurt.
Then, it’s on to selecting from a wide range of back to school backpacks and filling it up with up-to-date back to school supplies, giving your student an edge in the classroom (or at least no need to borrow a pencil in the middle of a test). A school supply box stocked with the right assortment of writing implements, art supplies, and electronics can make all the difference for students. Not only will it allow them to take on all challenges, feeling prepared will reduce stress (both yours and theirs) and enable promising young students to flourish.
