Back To School Haul + a Giveaway!

Jem and I hustled our buns to Walmart this weekend to stock up on back to school supplies. Deal alert right here! Let me tell you, she and I are two peas in a pod when it comes to back to school shopping.

We love all the savings – BOGO, extra bonuses, extreme sales, and all that.

We love the fresh smell – pencils, smelly markers, new books. Soak. It. In.

And, Jemma most of all LOVES coordinating and organizing – pink binder, pink ruler,  pink stapler, pink everything.

Without sounding too harsh, Jemma has been borderline annoying since all the back to school things have been popping up in stores. That girl is so stinkin’ excited to begin school. She has been sneaking looks at all her curriculum and is constantly chattering about all the things she’s going to learn as a kindergartener. Over the summer her reading has taken off and the other day she told me that she had learned to count to 100. Just cause I’m not officially teaching her yet doesn’t mean she isn’t learning!

I’m so happy she has a zest for learning. Here eagerness for education is going to take her far and I can’t wait to see what is to come.

Box Tops for Education is an easy way to give back to schools by buying products you already use at home. Plus, lots of school supply lists ask for Kleenex among other personal and classroom supplies and both Walmart and Walmart.com are offering double the Box Tops on Scott, Viva, and Kleenex products. Boom! So, while you’re shopping at Walmart for the basics, be sure to stock up stat on all the Double Box Top products!

Even though we’re homeschooling this year, Jemma is involved in some extracurriculars connected to our local school and both my mom and sister teach so I’m happy to purchase products with Box Tops when I can. And what’s better than regular Box Tops? DOUBLE BOX TOPS!

Learn how Box Tops turn into cash for your school here. Box Tops are a simple and free way to give back to the communities who give so much to our kids. Why not join in? Especially during Double Box Top season?

    Jemma! Your writing looks GREAT! I have always loved supply shopping . Thanks for the tip on Walmart. I started to compare lists (we are between two schools for Digs) and tried to figure out where to go. Need to get my booty out there!

  2. Julie Wood says

    I would use the Kleenex to put in my child’s bag to make sure she has a Kleenex at school for those runny nose that she gets,

  3. Wendy hutton says

    the kleenex would be one to use the kids are always asked to bring a box to school along with their supplies

  4. says

    My Son is starting Kindergarten so I am going to need multiple boxes of Kleenex! he has been at hone with me all this time and the school is huge! They have 12 Kindergarten classes.

  5. Marian says

    Kleenex! My daughter has to take boxes of tissues to school and the kids will sometimes share them so they don’t tend last long. Not to mention that cold and flu season is just around the corner. I love the nice desk set up you have for Jemma.

  6. Jenn H says

    Toilet paper! Seems funny but we’re homeschoolers! So school supplies also means home supplies since we’re home much of the time!!!

  7. Chelsie says

    Back to school shopping was something I got so excited about as a child! And WOW- so impressed by Jemma’s handwriting!

  8. Laurajj says

    Oh we would use the Kleenex! Its on our school list also, to bring two boxes! Helps the teacher stock up for the kids when we they get colds, and we always use at home. School year and fall always brings colds into our house….thankfully we have Kleenex!

  9. Darah says

    ALL the Kleenex- even though we homeschool, with 3 kids we totally get that round of back to school colds that everyone else seems to! Good luck, good luck! And best advice I ever got: everyone hates homeschooling in November and February. It’s just part of the process. <3

  10. Jenelle Hutnik says

    Jemma, you are a girl after my own heart! Ryker and I are going to hit up wal mart first thing in the morning while Pat sleeps! Definitely stocking up on tissues for my classroom while we are there :)

  11. Amy says

    We already finished our BTS shopping but it wouldn’t hurt to have backup for those supplies that need to be replenished throughout the year.

  12. Dawn Monroe says

    I would use the Kleenex because its on all my grandkids school supplies list. The teachers keep them in the class room.

  13. Janet W. says

    I would definitely use the Kleenex for morning congestion! I would also give a box to my grandsons’ teachers.

  14. Chelsey L says

    We would definitely use the Kleenex! I feel like we are constantly fighting runny noses! We wouldn’t necessarily use the toilet paper at school but we do save the tubes for school projects!

  15. Sharon Rooney says

    I would use the Kleenex and the Scott toilet paper. The Kleenex for nose blowing and Scott Tp for you know.

  16. Anna says

    Our school district is doing something new this year and there is NO back to school list! They want to make it fair for all the kids in all the schools in the district, so the district is supplying everything. Super interesting to see how it goes. But one of the kids needed a new backpack, so we finally went to the Jansport outlet and got one…that way we have a backpack with a lifetime guarantee!

  17. Birdiebee says

    I would use the Kleenex tissues, Viva paper towels and Scott toilet paper for everyday use at our household.
