The summer bucket list is almost complete.
Grow sunflowers bigger than Jack (and me). CHECK
Have ice-cream for dinner. CHECK
But I’m not going to lie we’ve reached the point in the summer where the days are hot and long and I’m ready for crisp mornings, routine and some space. So while I’m getting the kids organized for school this mama is also counting down the days to the first drop off.
Getting the kids organized to go back this year my game plan was keep it simple – pick one or two stores that I knew would have everything we needed and planned to maximize my Smart Cookie savings on items that would LAST.
For pencils, notebooks and all “back pack” supplies. Target.com was my go-to and I ordered through the Ibotta App and earned 100… yes 100% cash back on the pencils, erasers, notebooks and kleenex. Make sure you download the Ibotta app or grab the Chrome Extension so you can take advantage of their Back To School Free For All promotion.
For clothing and other essentials my go-to was Macy’s, stocking up on comfy athletic gear, backpacks even water bottles. I’ve linked a few of my favorite finds for Violet below.
