Back to School Blast: A $1000 Giveaway

Welcome to the Back to School Blast!

Getting your family prepared to head back to school, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.

1. Back-to-School Supplies Checklist - Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.
2. If this is the first time your child is going to school, play school to help them know what to expect. 
3. Write your child an encouraging note and put it in their lunch box/backpack on the first day (or any day!).
4. Pack lunches, backpacks and lay out clothes the night before to make mornings less chaotic.
5. Need ideas for lunch? Here are five ideas kids love.
The Back to School Blast was organized by Mom Powered Media.

  1. For lunchideas, i'll combine new foods with favorite ones. I think by doing this can help overcome some kids’ resistance to eating unfamiliar or just plain unliked ingredients.

  2. this is the kind of giveaway I'm wondering about. do you get any benefit from being a part of it?

  3. I just found a Pin that suggested you pre-freeze smoothie ingredients - brilliant. Then, if you're running late all you have to do is throw a few cubes of your choice in the blender.

  4. Buy some school supplies in advance (the ones that you know your child needs every year). You don't want to stand in line for a long time and brave your way through crowds of last-minute shoppers. Or else, buy a little bit later than most people, but some items might be out of stock by that time.

  5. My best back to school tip is to recycle. Seriously, we always had stuff around from the year before so we didn't have to buy new supplies. Saves lots of money.

  6. I also reuse a lot of stuff, organize it well the year before.

  7. Reuse where you can and thoroughly preparing for the next day the night before (or a week in advance when it comes to laying out clothes) can help make the next day go smoothly!

  8. I always enjoy hearing of others' experiences living abroad. My husband and I spend 2 years in Edinburgh. I saw your pictures and it makes my heart ache. I miss that beautiful country!

  9. reuse things and buy only the essencial.
