Thanks to Walmart for sponsoring today’s discussion.
It’s crazy. Here we are with less than two weeks now until my oldest starts first grade. FIRST grade people. Like not the baby of the school! I need to make sure I have colored ink ready in my printer for my back to school printable! Oh yeah, and find the binder in which I put last years’!
I’ve actually done all of her back to school shopping already, too. I did a shop for our church’s stuff a backpack program, so I picked her goodies up as well. This year, I only took E with me. It was the perfect excuse to have a nice, quiet shopping trip. I’ve thought about taking the older two and asking their thoughts. But, when the list says one green plastic folder with pockets and brads, well, there isn’t really much point in asking their preference, and only makes things harder. Or a box of 24 Crayola crayons. Takes the guess work out for sure. (And, yes, this is what is on the list!)
Being a teacher previously, I stick to exactly what the teacher requests. I remember sitting in my desk in first grade with the wrong color folder and being devastated. So, no surprises here.
Walmart has recently created the fun, new, and easy way for parents to shop school supplies for their children/child with Classrooms. Parents can visit the Classrooms curated school lists to get started purchasing school supplies for their kid/s. There is a list for all grades.It’s very easy to sign up to check to see if your student supply list is listed there.
- Visit the Classrooms website
- Click on “Parents Sign up” in the top menu bar.
- Fill out the information
- Then Click “Sign Up”
Of course, if you can’t find your children’s/child’s teacher registry, they have you covered, too. Simply invite them to join Classrooms in one easy step – Click “request a list” to send an email to your teacher.
Also, Teachers can setup their own teacher registry and create a list of items they will need throughout the year. Rather than passing out supply lists to students, teachers can have parents log on and purchase without leaving their home.
Classrooms by Walmart is more than just a great new way to buy school supplies! Check the “Cash for Schools” landing page and see if your school has signed up. If so, you can begin earning 4% cash back on all Walmart purchases for your school. If not, provide your school administrator with the printable “Free Cash For Your School” PDF.
And don’t forget, that you can also help the school of their choice earn money by redeeming eBoxTops!
As a bonus, Walmart’s partners at Lysol® will award over $50,000 in cash prizes to the schools that earn the most cash back between 7/15/2013 and 10/31/2013.
I’m all about making back to school shopping as easy and painless as possible. Walmart most often has the lowest prices, and now they are making it even easier to shop for the supplies and get money for our schools that are in desperate need!
How do you do your back to school shopping? In the store or online?
