One of the things that my family is pretty used to from me is how I forget the little things. If I don’t have something written down I’ll more than likely overlook it; so I have a lot of little notepads. Gathering my children’s back to school essentials can be tricky since I have a list of basic things, but tend to forget the other items like: sanitizer for all those germs, vitamins to help create super virus fighting kids, a mountain of tissues (how many does a class really need??) and disinfectant wipes for everyone. I know, I’m a bit obsessive about germ fighting.
The point is, Walgreens has saved me time after time when I happen to miss a few things!
What’s really nice is that you can pretty much wrap everything up while in the store. Walgreens Healthcare Clinic has the convenience of offering school physicals or sports physicals for $49* without an appointment. Walk-in’s are welcome! You can make sure your kids are ready to go while you pick up a few more pens, pencils, one subject notebooks or 16 glue sticks.
Teen is going back to school as a Junior this year, can you believe it?? Thankfully there’s a wide array of school supplies to cover Pre-school through College. Here’s 10 of my Do Not Forget extra items for back to school.
- Snack Bags
- Disinfectant Wipes
- Crayons & Colored Pencils for Homework
- Extra Pens & Pencils for Home
- Vitamins (Lots of Vitamin C!)
- Deodorant for Teen
- On-the-Go Mini Sanitizer Bottles
- New Toothbrushes
- Memory Sticks & Printer Ink (for Homework Projects)
A lot of the items are also on sale! Make sure to look through the Walgreens Ad, the August Savings Book and the special back to school stands for Balance Reward earnings. Don’t forget that you can couple your Sunday paper coupons with your Walgreens coupons to get more savings on much needed items.
If you had a child in school last year, take a moment and run through the items that you had to go back to the store to get once school started. Make sure you have extra homework essential items in case your child forgets to bring home their calculator, art utensils or notebooks. If your child participates in PE or sports, don’t forget to get a lock for the locker-room. Think outside the school box for items you need at home and by the time the first day of school rolls around you will be Mom Prepared!
