Disclosure: I received a gift card for Back to School shopping. All opinions are my own.
My kids go back to school at the end of the month, so earlier this week, we started our back to school shopping. I use the back to school season to stock up on basic necessities for the kids along with new fall clothing. So, our shopping list usually includes school supplies like backpacks and pencils along with clothing like underwear, socks, and new outfits. Shopping for back to school can be challenging though. With a 7 and 8 year old, I find that I have to focus my kids and steer them in the right direction, reminding them why we are shopping. They usually try to also buy video games, DVDs, candy, and other unrelated items.
But back to school shopping isn’t just overwhelming, it’s also pricey. Like most families, we do end up spending quite a bit of money during the back to school season. But if underwear is on your shopping list, Fruit of the Loom is offering a great promotion for back to school. With their Underwear for Overachievers deal, you’ll get free underwear in their bonus packs. The packages include lots of different designs – so you are likely to find sets perfect for your kids. We went to Walmart for back to school shopping, and loaded up our cart with underwear and socks for both kids, new pajamas, a few new back to school outfits, and pencils for homework.
As usual, I did have to redirect my kids’ attention to the task at hand, reminding them that we weren’t there to buy watches, crayons, and bathing suits. But overall, we had a successful trip and are now stocked with the essentials for back to school.
