5 Tips for Successful School Supply Shopping #TargetBTS2015
Let’s face it…school supply shopping is not always the easiest thing, is it? I mean it feels like a crazy scavenger hunt throughout the store and although it is fun (I really LOVE school supply shopping) we spend a lot of time making certain that we have everything that we need.
Target simplifies school supply shopping by carrying all the national brands families look for and they are all available at a great value. This year, Target has a new tool that will help parents shop the supply list—School List Assist. An online destination built specifically to make finding the exact supply as easy as 1-2-3.
This year we did a little school supply shopping both in-store and online. I love doing it this way because I can get some great deals and make certain that we are getting everything that we need.
1. Get a basket for each kid.
Trust me, you will thank me later. Not only does each child get to push their own basket, we also check out separately for each so all of their supplies are in their own bags.
2. Buy in bulk and split up as needed.
Every classroom needs a few boxes of tissues, right? So buy a large pack with 8-10 boxes and then split them up as needed. I give some to each kid and keep some around the house. Same thing goes for wipes, pencils, markers and more.
3. Go through last year’s supplies.
We always shop our house first before buying any school supplies. The chances are that we usually have a few things left over from the year before.
4. Make it fun.
Each kid gets a list plus a little extra budget to get some cool things for their lockers and classrooms. Target has all you need and more. Glittery binders? Check. Sequined pencil cases? Check. Awesome backpacks to make a statement? Check.
5. Don’t have time to shop? Use Target School List Assist.
Target School List Assist is a revolutionary new way to make school supply shopping a breeze.
