We’re partnering with our favorite bloggers to share their back to school tips and tricks. From kid’s style trends to necessary items, we love learning how these moms gear up for the year ahead.
This week we’re welcoming Rebecca Smith from Rebecca Smith Online to share how she’s preparing her kids for back to school, complete with all the necessary items in their favorite colors from Meijer.
Back-to-school shopping is one of my favorite childhood memories. The smell of new pencils, the feel of fresh paper, and the vision of first day of school outfit pictures is still easily accessible in my memory.
So, now that my own children are entering school, I was eager to get to Meijer to pick up everything they would need in one stop.
Cozy and Colorful Clothing Necessities
We hit up the clothing section first. Color upon color met us as we walked through each rack of clothing. My kids are very particular about their clothing—each with their own picky standards—and we were so pleased to find clothing to meet their liking in each department.
My daughter can’t stand pants with buttons, so when we found denim leggings that look just like skinny jeans, we were both ecstatic. Then I let her pick out a new shirt. She bypassed everything that wasn’t pink and found a comfortable and stylish shirt by Btween in her size. I had my eye on some super cute bohemian style tops for her, but her pink loving heart wouldn’t even think of anything else.
As we were walking out, she spotted the most adorable Falls Creek Kids glitter fox shoes. Her shoes and socks immediately came off as she sat down to try them on. Perfect fit. She put everything on as soon as we got home.
My son loves to be comfortable. So when I found jeans made from “knit denim,” and advertised to be “as comfortable as sweat pants,” I knew I had found a winner. He confirmed later that they did, in fact, feel as comfortable as sweats! I grabbed two shirts in his favorite colors and we were off. Why are boys so much quicker to shop for than girls?!
Fun and Vibrant School Supplies
Next up was my favorite section: school supplies. We were on the hunt for our favorite colors, and were able to find everything we needed and wanted. There are so many fun colors, prints, and styles of notebooks, folders and pencils. The kids were thrilled with all of their fun trinkets for school, and I was thrilled that we could get everything on our list at Meijer.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to make back-to-school shopping a memorable experience for my kids. I can’t wait to reminisce about our hours spent at Meijer, skipping down aisles, picking out our favorite color supplies and having fun planning for the year ahead.
Now, it’s back to school. Goodbye summer. We’ll miss you!
