Thanks to JCPenney and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. We can’t wait for back to school and back to college!
It’s one of the most exciting times of the year–back to school and back to college. I remember feeling those nervous and thrilling butterflies before each school year, even into college. There’s just something so exceptional about starting a new school year and the key word is new.
New clothes, a new backpack, new classmates, and new teachers…it’s all part of growing up that we never forget. I bet you remember a special outfit your parents let you pick out for back to school, or the way your brand new backpack smelled as you opened it up for the first time. What better way to start off a new school year than with some of these hand-picked favorites from JCPenney’s Back-to-School/Back-to-College section with huge door busters and budget-friendly prices.
Back to School, Back to College with 13 HOT JCPenney Finds
We’ve hand-picked these back to school finds with you, our readers, in mind. We are moms of grade-schoolers, middle-schoolers, high-schoolers, and college students alike so we understand where you’re coming from. You want cool back-to-school stuff that doesn’t break the bank. You want to get the most for your buck and these promos will have you kicking your heels, whether you shop in store or online.
Aren’t these the cutest boots for little and big girls alike? I can see my 4th grader stepping into the new year with a lot of sass in these cuties. Sometimes a new pair of boots like this is all it takes to give a kid the confidence they need to succeed. Great price too!
I’m just dying over this new denim jacket that comes in sizes 4-20, so much so that I am going to grab one for my 13-year-old and try and steal it from her closet every now and then. How cute would this look with black leggings and the above boots? And for around $20…that’s a steal!
While we’re talking jeans, my girls are getting me to come around to this new style they love so much. This year’s back to school haul was all about high rise, loose-fitting jeans. And as my daughter put it…they have to be ripped. If you have girls, grab these while they’re on doorbuster!
And when it comes to bottoms for boys, all my boys want to wear to school every day are either athletic shorts or joggers. JCPenney has a new line out from Nike and Russel Wilson called 3Brand and my guys are all about it for the new school year.
I’m loving these flowing little blouses for girls…so feminine and pretty and the price on this one is perfect! And sizes go from 4-16. Super cute!
If you’re looking for a FABULOUS deal on a grade school back pack, look no further. This one comes in 8 colors/styles for boys and girls and the best part–it COMES WITH a lunch box! As a mom, I love backpacks like this that solve two problems in one. And it has a built-in spot for the lunchbox to fit comfortably.
If you have older kids who are looking for a cool factor, this adidas lunch bag is excellent. It’s a great price for such a durable bag that will last your kids beyond this school year. Insulated with lots of pockets, this is the perfect lunch bag for middle school or high school.
And the best high school/college backpack award goes to this classic JanSport that is built to do the heavy lifting of all those anatomy and literature books without the regular wear and tear of lesser backpacks. Older kids appreciate the simplicity but still cool look and right now, you can get a GREAT deal on it at JCPenney, either in store or online.
Every new school year deserves a new fragrance. This new perfume by Ariana Grande looks like the perfect one for teens! My husband gave me this Ariana Grande perfume for Christmas and I love it, so I’m sure this new scent is amazing. A new perfume can be a huge confidence boost.
Dorm room musts:
If you have older kids going off to college/the real world…give them a little piece of home with these essentials!
This is my #1 recommendation for all college beds. A memory foam mattress topper is a MUST–please don’t send your child to college without one! Not only are those college beds terribly uncomfortable…but one has to question how sanitary they are as well. ‘Nuf said.
Isn’t this comforter set a little piece of heaven? Elevate a dorm room or just refresh a bedroom in your house–either way, this stop-your-scroll bed set is an incredible price. (Really, you won’t believe it!) I could click “Add To Cart” fast enough!
Wouldn’t a few of these pillows be adorable with the above comforter set? JCPenney has so many great home items that are trending with the hottest styles right now.
Set your college student up right with this bath bundle that has everything they need for dorm life. I suggest writing his or her initials on the tags in permanent marker so that towels can find their home when they get misplaced.
And while you’re at it, your college kid is going to need this essential tote to put showering essentials in, ESPECIALLY if they will be living in the dorms. Let me tell you, no one wants to make the long trek to the showers trying to carry everything they need in their arms. Not to mention once you get there, to realize you’ve forgotten the soap! For under $10, this tote is a must.
Finally, these Melamine dishes are amazing for apartment living and perfect for college students. I actually have a set of these at home and they are our favorite ones to grab and throw on the table. They’re a breeze to wash and you never have to worry about breaking. Grab a set for your college-bound kid and a set for yourself at this price!
So head back to school and back to college in style this year without straining your pocket book. I’m constantly impressed by JCPenney items for the whole family and with current back-to-school promos going on, you can score big time!
