With summer almost over, the back to school shopping season is upon us. It's the time that the sales for pencils, crayons, and backpacks start showing up in the stores. Did you know that I LOVE new school supplies? A fresh notebook and cool pens are so fun! I know I'm weird.
Having two school-aged boys in the house really takes a toll on my wallet at this time of the year. They both need everything to get ready for school, so I try to save money and stay sane at every turn. Not to mention being a teacher also hurts the wallet a bit because there are certain supplies that I need and want for the classroom.
|Crayons & pencils & pens, OH MY!|
Both boys need multiple pencils, folders and glue sticks. Why not get it in bulk? They also need tissue boxes, wipes and Ziplocs. It's a no-brainer!
|Everything we need to get ready for school lunches!|
|A pack of 3 bins? Perfect for organizing my classroom!|
You can't forget about school lunches. BJs offers many of the lunch items that my kids love. From sandwich items to snacks, I can get it all! Check out this BJs Backstage Sandwich Palooza video on how to make-over your lunch using all items from BJs.
|Why didn't they have these when I went to college...so retro!|
|Don't forget to use the BJs coupons for extra savings!|
And BJ’s offers discounts on gift cards. Many of the major retailer $25 gift cards that they sell go for $23.99. That’s right, you’re payling less than the value of the card. Perfect gifts for your child's teachers....hint, hint!
