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?
