The Back to School Supplies List: How Moms can Save Time and Money

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Every summer, moms have to make the annual trip to their local office supply or big box store to shop for all the items on their kids’ back to school supplies list.

But rather than being a fun time with the kids, helping them to pick out fun new folders and lunch boxes, the experience usually becomes stressful…you end up fighting through crowded aisles and digging through shelves and displays to find that one elusive yellow folder that the teacher requires….and you leave feeling frustrated (and having yelled at the kids a time or two).

No matter all my good intentions, this same thing happens to me every summer when it comes time to do our back to school shopping.

Sometimes we can’t find everything that is on the school supplies list, and other times, we can’t get our cart down the aisle because it is too crowded with people. Sometimes we’ve had to stand in line at the register for 45 minutes, waiting to check out, which leaves us all in a bad mood.

And that doesn’t even count the times I forgot the school supplies list at home! Ugh!

    This looks like a great way to know what your kids need and to be able to purchase it online makes it so easy too. I shop online often at Target for cat food and vitamins for the kids adding school supplies this way would great too.
