Moms School Supply Shopping List

How To Be School Ready

Beginning of school can be stressful to some kids, and to moms. Being ready takes a lot of preparation. I’ve got your back on this one moms! Going back to school for me as a kid was always fun only because I loved buying new clothes. I loved picking out supplies and being able to use it on the first day.

Department Stores

The beginning of the school year is when department stores start their school discounts.

The best time to buy school supplies is 2 weeks to 1 week before school starts. Don’t be the late parent. Supplies run out and prices get higher.

You want your child to be ready for the first day of school. Some teachers give out a list of classroom supplies, but you don’t want your child to go to school empty-handed.
