SchoolKidz by Staples makes back to school easy

Oh back to school, how I dread you! More than just having to give up my sweet kiddos for hours every day, I also dread the whole back to school process of each new school year. This next year is going to be even harder for me as I will officially be without my firstborn The thought is enough to bring me to tears, so I have no idea how on earth I’m going to cope once Kindergarten is a distant memory and serious school starts. But, while I can’t do anything to ease my growing separation anxiety, I know where I’m going to turn to make our transition as easy as possible: SchoolKidz by Staples. Designed to make back to school easier than ever for busy parents, SchoolKidz handles all the supplies and school lists, including all the tissues I’m going to be needing come September.SchoolKidz

It may seem really early to be talking back to school because the kids are still in school for a few more months, but some things are worth planning ahead for. By setting your account up now and encouraging your child’s school to get involved, you can make back to school not only easier for yourself, but also for the entire school by making shopping for school and classroom supplies as easy as a few clicks.

This is an example of what you can get through their program, and includes everything from pencils and paper to classroom supplies and even book bags at competitive prices.

And, even better than that is that the supplies all come neatly packaged in color coded and labeled cardboard storage boxes {or time capsule} that are designed for storing all the millions of art projects and papers that come home throughout the year. I’ve been using one of these for a few months now and I love that it is easy to store, easy to access when needed, and it is a snapshot into this school year that will become a great keepsake.

In addition to being so convenient for busy parents who don’t want to spend hours searching through required lists and then tracking those {sometimes hard-to-find} items down in retail, SchoolKidz also provides an easy fundraising opportunity to make much-needed money for the school. Really, it’s a win, win for the school and for the parents.

Parents don’t have the stress and the hassle of finding each individual item throughout different retailers which makes it easier to ensure the school gets the supplies they need from each family, and the school gets money back that they can use to improve educational programs.

Setting up a school account is easy and it doesn’t take long to create supply lists for each class, and it sure beats printing out a bunch of flyers. And, once the lists are PTPA logocreated, revising them is simple and makes future years lists easier than ever. By starting now and urging your school to sign up, you can make back to school shopping as easy as a few clicks for you as well as for the rest of your school.

I don’t know about you, but I know I’m going to appreciate that come August when the stores are all packed and picked through!
