Back To School Basics

Like it or not, the school bell will be ringing soon!  For some it comes as a sigh of relief while others are not as happy about it.  The back to school shopping is often dreaded for many reasons, but I’ve tried to find the best deals for you on some always needed items to help ease the pain on your pocketbook.  The offers below are valid until Saturday, August 10.

Backpack/Lunch Box

I’m also adding a few bonus items for your child’s wardrobe! A few only apply if your child attends private school and wears a uniform.  While some schools have requirements about their uniforms, there are some pieces that are generic and can be purchased outside of the school retailer for some savings.  


I would love to hear of any other deals you come across as you’re out and about marking off those lists.  And if you’re able, throw some extra items in for your teacher or school. You know how those budgets are for supplies.  Happy shopping friends!
