4 Back to School Tips for a Stress Free Start
Stock up on supplies without leaving the house
Don’t stress about packing the kids up in the car. Don’t stress about standing in line. Don’t stress about the millions of people in just a few aisles of the whole store looking for the right back to school supplies.
Save yourself the stress mama and order as many of your school supplies online. Did you know, right now, you can save up to $3 on brands and products that are already on your back to school shopping list?
Every classroom needs more than just paper, notebooks and pencils. Every classroom usually needs boxes and boxes of facial tissues, paper towels, wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.
Right now, on Amazon you can save up to $3 and 15 % off on brands like Kleenex, Cottonelle, Scott and Viva. Not only can you stock up for your back to school supplies in bulk, but, you can easily, conveniently and quickly stock up on your paper products for your own home for the year.
Save even more by using Subscribe and Save. Have all your supplies delivered straight to your front door, no need to leave the house.
Stock up for next year
Once school actually starts, stores usually put their left over supplies on clearance. You can do this by shopping off season as well.
Keep an eye out on the basics things your child will need next year and hit the cheap prices when they go on sale during the off season.
Get back into the routine
Don’t wait until the week before to try to hurry your kids back into the school routine. Ease them back into the school schedules a few weeks before school starts. This will also help them have a smoother first couple of weeks. Already used to their school schedules, they won’t feel rushed, sleep deprived or out of their groove.
Take them shopping with you to build excitement
If you have a child who is anxious about the new school year, find ways to get them excited. If they can help pick out their supplies or new clothes for the year, maybe it will take some of the stress and anxiety off their chest.
If you’re ordering your supplies off Amazon (smart mama- skipping those lines, masses of people and saving on gas!), have them sit by your side and help pick out the designs and colors of things. The more involved they feel, the better they’ll feel about the year.
