Little by little we are starting to leave “summer” behind us and are rolling full steam ahead into la escuela! I can’t wait. Actually, B2S shopping is my favorite time to shop for the kids. Although we have been on a tight budget since I have stopped working, we have always managed to get what we need. Which is different from what we or the kids want. Know what I mean?
Before our move to el OC, my eldest wore uniforms. I will be perfectly honest now… I loved that. It was so simple to shop. Here was our list (clothing wise):
3 khaki pants, 3 Navy blue pants, 3 navy blue shorts,
3 white collar tops, 3 navy blue collar tops
That’s it. One pair of shoes to top that off. See how simple that was? Easy. Cheap and totally economical!
Not only do we have to shop for a Jr. Higher, we now also have a 1st grader. That’s 2 separate wardrobes. Imagine next year when my nena starts Kindergarten?!?
Did you know that according to recent research by PriceGrabber’s Back-to-School Shopping Forecast , more than half of moms will spend about the same on back-to-school shopping this year with a third of moms spending less. I will be spending about the same for my 8th grader and a little more on my 1st grader.
To ensure that us moms, stay within our back-to-school budgets, Walmart’s every day low price is backed by an ad match policy.
With ad match, Walmart will match any local competitor’s advertised price for the same product, right at the register.
This year, Walmart is making back-to-school shopping even easier with new store improvements. Back-to-school items are now organized, both in stores and online, in one place and categorized by school age group, so families can quickly and easily shop supplies appropriate for their child’s grade. Many of the most common school supply list items are located down the center of the back-to-school aisle allowing families to quickly check these items off their list.
For those who prefer to shop online, Walmart.com offers free shipping to home on a broad assortment of back-to-school essentials and more.
From uniforms, socks and a clean drawers full of new chonies, to crayons to pencils (which start at 94 cents for a 24 ct), Backpacks and Laptops, Walmart is your one stop store for all you B2S needs! Gotta love Walmart!
