It’s August which officially means that it is Back to School shopping time! We don’t go back to school until after Labor Day, but I like to start my shopping early so that I can take advantage of all the sales. I love shopping for new clothes, back packs and school supplies! But I also know that everyone is not fortunate enough to go back to school with new school supplies at the start of a school new year. So I decided to make going back to school easier for one local family.
Making Back to School Easy
This year along with a group of bloggers, I am making back to school easy by giving school supplies to families that need them. Like last year, I was given $25 to purchase school supplies. I chose a mother of a sixth grader who had recently mentioned how ridiculous some of the items on her son’s mandatory school supply list were. I saw the list and agreed.
The list included pens, notebooks, notebook paper, a dictionary, hand sanitizer, tissues, a thesaurus, printer ink, PE uniform ($50), two reams of copy paper, two combination locks, a flash drive and about 10 other items. I know that one of the best ways to be successful in school is to be prepared, so I decided to spend my own money and buy the printer ink and copy paper in addition to the items pictured below. In the end I didn’t mind how much it cost me out of pocket, because I was happy the mom wouldn’t have to stress about how she would get the items before school starts.

When do your kids go back to school?
I received $25 to purchase school supplies. No other compensation was received.
