Back to school shopping

Yes its that time! I know its early but this weekend I went school supply shopping. A lot of parents do tend to leave this until the last minute but here is my reasoning as to why its better to do it now:

  • Just like Christmas there is always last minute shoppers pushing and shoving isn't shopping hard enough with kids? go early and avoid the crowds.
  • Who wants to have to go to 1, 2, 3, stores in order to get what we need because there is nothing left! Get there early and get just want we need while supplies are high.
  • Check out those early deals! My sons book bag online and in other well know stores was priced at $20 and the lunch bag at $15. Toys R Us was offering a deal where if I was to buy the Backpack at $15 I would get the Lunch Bag FREE - All round WIN if you as me.

Book Bag was at Toys R US - $15
Mickey Mouse Crayons and Makers - $1 each Don't forget those Value bins at the front entrance of the store.

Lego Folder was only $2 at Target and my son was thrilled. Target have really stepped up there game especially with there own brand items - pencils 50c, Scissors $1 glue $1 etc.

For everything I spent about $30 and I was so impressed because us moms know just how expensive Back to school can be. The only thing I have left to do is shoe shopping and an outfit.. I for one feel relieved to have completed this mommy mission early on :)
