For the last 20+ years, we have had a back to school shopping session. My kids and I all go back to school shopping and make a blast out of it. Well, this year, my daughter is 17, which means back to school shopping looks a little different than it did ten years ago. We still make back to school shopping fun and super fun for everyone. Here are some of my favorite tips for making back to school shopping easier.
Make a list – There is nothing worse than thinking you have everything on your list, but you don’t. Make back to school shopping easier by actually making a list and following that list. You’ll save yourself a lot of trouble and heartache by doing this.
Split up for the shopping – If back to school shopping gets a little too hectic, my daughter and I will split up. You can cover more ground when you’re not trying to worry about each other. She’ll take on one store and I’ll take on the other. We can get our shopping done and head out to our annual back to school lunch (admittedly our favorite part of this whole ordeal).
Don’t get stressed out – Back to school shopping is never easier whenever you are stressed. Our motto is to NOT get stressed. Take your time and don’t let the stress of back to school shopping get to you. I know it feels like you have a ton to do in a short period of time, but really try and enjoy this moment with your kids. Each year you go back to school shopping, it’s one less year you’ll have with them later down the road (kids grow up way too fast).
