Back to school.
Those three words not only produce deep groans and dread from the kids, but sometimes, the PARENTS!
I’m not going to lie, I LOVE the carefree days of Summer.
Little to no schedule. Days spent in the park and at the pool. Vacations.
It’s a dream….that is until about August 1 when my kids inevitably start bickering and I once again see the need for structure and routine.
One thing that SHOULD NOT be stressful for any parent of a kiddo is back to school shopping.
With 5 kids, making sure everyone has what they need for the new school year can create some angst. I have to find a LOT of shoes for a LOT of little feet. That’s why I’m so grateful for Walmart! I can not tell you how many good things I’ve found there lately and how easy they make it for even our big family to shop!
Here are a few reasons I LOVE to shop Walmart year round (but especially at back to school time!)
First, it’s one stop shopping that I don’t even have to leave my house for if I don’t want to. Literally, I can order everything I need online and a few clicks later, it’s going to show up on my door in 2 days! No crazy dressing room drama!
Second, I’m so impressed by Walmart’s fashion choices! Even my pickiest daughters are able to find just what they love and reflects their individual style.
Lastly, the value is fantastic. Outfitting an entire family can get pricey, and Walmart keeps it within my budget.
Take a peek at some of my favorite picks for back to school!
It doesn’t matter where your kiddo goes to school, they’re going to need a backpack. Whether they’re just starting at and need a little one to just carry their show and tell to preschool or packing it full of heavy textbooks, a quality backpack is a back to school essential.
My older twins are entering a stage when EVERYTHING is a fashion statement, and they want a “cool” backpack that reflect their individuality. They loved the fun choices at Walmart! From a sequin star style to rocking the unicorn, there really were some fun choices. Plus, I was happy with the quality and the price!
How is it possible that kids go through shoes as fast as they do? I swear their feet grow overnight! Not to mention hours spent on the playground always seem to wear them out just a little faster. I’m a big fan of the style and quality of kids’ shoes at Walmart. I have seen so many styles there lately that are almost exactly like the pricier brand names and the best part is? They LAST!
So many of them I want in MY size!
This one is a no brainer. Walmart is killing it in the kids’ clothing departments. One thing I have to note is the fact I found darling things for ALL my kids – in a range of sizes and styles. Sometimes, I’m able to find the perfect things for my 4 year old, but it can be difficult for my older kids! This is NOT the case when I shop Walmart. They truly have great picks for all sizes, shapes, and styles of kid!
Let me show you what I’m talking about!
This henley striped top with a great flat front short is perfect for my 12 year old! He likes sports and his clothes have to be comfortable so he can keep up at recess. I loved this basic set that screamed “classic comfort”.
My 9 year old twins are as different as night and day and constantly wanting to express individual style.
They were pumped to find outfits that worked for each of them and I was pumped to find things that fit their soon to be tween expectations!
(Can you tell which one likes to dress up a little more?)
Denim Dress/ Striped embellished tee/jeggings
And finally, let’s not leave the littlest ones out!
(That little blond boy leaves me for Kindergarten this year and my heart can hardly stand it!)
I really liked that there were lots of outfit SETS available in smaller sizes like this darling top and embroidered jeggings.
I feel like sets are SO much easier when dressing a little one, and often enables them to dress themselves easier too!
Phew. Are you tired yet?
That’s a LOT of kids to outfit!
That’s why I’m so grateful for how easy Walmart makes the process.
Did I mention I ordered ALL this online and it arrived on my doorstep in 2 days?
And here’s another miracle…IT ALL FIT!
It doesn’t get any easier, or cuter, than shopping at Walmart.
Plus, because it saved me so much time by being my one stop shopping destination, I have more time to spend with these cute faces before they head back to the daily grind.
Happy Back to School Season!
