This year Kohl’s is making Back-to-School shopping a lot easier by offering school supplies! Through a partnership with Office Max, Kohl’s is now offering everything from notebooks and crayola products to pens and cases. As if getting great deals on school clothes and accessories wasn’t enough!
I took a trip over there last week to see what they had to offer in the store. The school supplies are spread out on stands or shelves semi-based on the school age clothing it is close to. For instance, you’ll find the crayola products near the children’s clothing and the MEAD folders and notebooks by the tween/teen areas.
The price of the school staples are expected, although the MEAD 3-holed folders are much cheaper than many places I’ve found them. The major difference in price comes from the great deals Kohl’s always has to offer, from their ofttimes 15-20% OFF deals to receiving Kohl’s Cash. It is the only place I know of where I can shop for great school clothes at major discounts, get rewarded for it and then use those rewards to pick up school supplies!
I picked up multiple 1 ring notebooks and folders for Teen since he has to have 1 per classroom; plus other essentials like pens and pencils. With all the supplies he needed somewhere he could store them all, so I found this great OGIO Strider Backpack!
You can see the front of it on the main image, but it is really the inside that I loved! It has interior pockets for small items and three sections for larger items, one being the laptop case. Along with a water bottle holder, it also has extra padded shoulder straps for easy comfort and mobility.
Backpacks are on sale now for 20-50% OFF. Since my teen generally goes through 2 cheap backpacks, having a better quality one makes a big difference.
One of my most favorite items I found at Kohl’s is called the Boogie Board. It’s an electrical tablet that you can write notes on and with the push of a button they are cleaned! Since Tot is going into a special language program for Kindergarten, it is imperative to keep up to date with things in the classroom. However, this would be the perfect gift for a kid going off to college to keep notes! You can find the Boogie Board and many other great products in the Dorm section!
And of course there is the over abundance of school clothes available. For those of you that have children that are addicted to vehicles like mine, I just wanted you to know that Jumping Beans has a plethora of vehicle shirts! Of course I had to pick up just about all of them. Tot wouldn’t let me take a photo of them though because he wanted them all for himself. Not to worry though, he’ll be showcasing the new Disney Jumping Beans Fire & Rescue line in a few days!
