Buying school supplies, especially when you have more than one child, can be super time-consuming. I feel like we often spend the last few weeks of summer trying to hunt down school supplies for all of the kids instead of getting outside and enjoying the last bit of freedom. But, thankfully there is an easier way to buy school supplies!
This is Rachel here, and I’m excited to share with you how I’ve simplified my back-to-school shopping. This post was sponsored by a company called ClassBundl, but sadly they have closed. However, there are other companies offering a similar service. Check with you child’s school to see if they have made arrangements for prepackaged school supplies with a particular company.
UPDATE: We’ve created a detailed, printable school supplies list to help you quickly shop for your kids whether they’re going into Kindergarten or any other grade in Elementary School, Middle School, High School and even College.
As the mom of 6, back-to-school can be a bit overwhelming. It seems like there are so many things to buy. I generally end up forgetting at least a handful of things and have to go back to the store several times once school starts just to grab the odds and ends.
It’s time consuming and stressful.
This year, I’m trying to reduce my stress level. One thing you learn after having half a dozen kids, is you have to streamline whatever processes you can. If I didn’t, I could easily spend all my time running around and finishing off things that still need to be done.
Rather than dragging all my kids to the store and hunting down each individual item that they need before starting school, this year we simplified.
Yes, I discovered how buying prepackaged school supplies can take back-to-school shopping off your plate with their convenient school supply bundles. With a few quick clicks, you can have your school supplies on their way, shipped straight to your front door.
We used ClassBundl, but unfortunately as of October 2018, they have closed. It was an amazing service that makes it easy for you to get all your school supplies in one place. You can search by grade level to see exactly what supplies your child is going to need.
You can find other companies now that provide this service.
They don’t limit it to just the standard crayons and pencils either. You have the option to buy cleaning products, tissues, plastic bags, and all the other things that you know your child’s school teacher is going to be requesting on the first day of school.
My oldest daughter is starting first grade this coming school year. I’m so excited for her and really want to be able to enjoy this new milestone in her life.
I’m definitely going to miss her when she heads back to school in the fall, though, so I’m maximizing our time now. Ordering a school supply box kit was so easy. I selected her grade, made a few customizations, and clicked to order.
I am impressed at how many supplies were included in her bundle. Everything is name brand and exactly what I would have chosen if I had been shopping for her personally.
My daughter was so excited to get all of her school supplies in the mail. She’s been loving summer vacation and hadn’t mentioned going back to school at all, but now she’s starting to get excited.
If you are ordering for more than one child, you’ll love that their supplies are packed separately so you don’t have to worry about sorting through all the items to divide them up.
I always loved getting mail as a kid and having such a cute box of school supplies delivered from ClassBundl did a great job of getting my daughter excited for school and saved us so much time.
This is such a fantastic way to simplify back-to-school shopping.
