While school started for many kids this past month, many more are starting back today, September 2nd! While it is fun for kids to shop for all of the supplies, one thing truly matters most of all. It isn’t the backpack. It isn’t even seeing friends. It is the clothes.
My kids and I had a lot of fun shopping at Target for clothes for them to wear back to school. In fact, the minute my nearly 6 year old kindergartner saw this green Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shirt in the store she told me that she had to have it to wear on the first day of school. And you know what, she did just that!
My kids and I actually made a day of shopping for our supplies and clothes. I know as a kid, every little thing matters (and Target actually gets that too). The prices are always affordable, although I did teach my kids to always check before we shop. They had fun checking all sorts of clothes:
We were able to find the perfect shirts and then visited the shoe department. So many styles from which they could choose!
While my kids had fun finding the items that THEY wanted, there was still one thing that is a must when it is back to school time. If you are a mom, you know what I’m talking about. Socks and underwear!!! Just like with myself, I hate spending too much on these items. I was able to find the things my kids needed and even tracked down a Target Cartwheel coupon to use with them – to save even more! Seriously — don’t you LOVE how much money you can save at Target?!!!

With three kids heading to school this year for the first time, my budget had to be in check. I couldn’t afford to overspend. I had to make sure that my kids were able to get those extra special things that really mattered to them, as this is THEIR time of the year. Visiting Target allowed this mom’s wallet to still have money left after we shopped and we still were able to pick up all of those items my kids wanted. After all, Every Little Thing Matters.
