Back-to-School Shopping @Kohls - One Stop Shop! #Kohls101 #Back2School #ad

Kohls Department Stores Inc

Are you ready for school to start?  Have you begun your back to school shopping yet?   My kids' school starts towards the end of August, we are always the last school in the area to start.  They have yet to put the school supply lists out yet, but we all know that are a number to staple items that kids need, notebooks, pencils, backpack, etc.
Kohl’s will make your family’s back-to-school shopping trip easier than ever before by offering school supplies in-store for the first time! Through a partnership with Office Max, Kohl’s is excited to provide customers with all the school supplies they need from folders to notebooks and pens to pencil cases.

So not only can you score on-trend seasonal fashion, must-have school gear,stylish dorm décor and now school supplies, why shop anywhere else?  I love shopping at Kohl’s year-round for my entire family  and my home because of the selection, sales, and value. Of course I would look to Kohl's for all my back to school needs and was excited to head out and see all the goodies I could score for my kids.
I loved the  adorable animal and sport themed notebooks and folders.  Now that the kids are getting older, these are perfect for them.   Not childish and not a themed character that they can grow out of by the end of the year.  I like to pick up extras, so we can switch out the battered up folders throughout the year.   They also had solid color folders and notebooks too!  Pencils, pens, highlighters, glue, markers, post-its, you name it, Kohl's had it all!
My daughter is a little fashionista, so of course we had to pick up some cute tops, pants, capris,shorts and even a dress for her! One of our favorite finds was the Cray Like A Fox shirt. It is super soft and longer in the back. She is also a soccer player, so of course the soccer themed shirt was a must! I loved that all the pants and shorts we found had the adjustable waist, which is perfect for her!
Little man hit a growth spurt!  No more 5Ts, so that meant all new clothes for him! Noah is on a Ready Freddy Chapter Book kick right now, so for those of you who do not know, the main character Freddy loves sharks.  Noah has now taken a liking to sharks and was ecstatic with the Hammerhead and Great White shirts!
I feel like we hit the jackpot of school clothes for Noah.  Kohl's had sporty shirts (Adidas), character themed (Avengers/Minecraft), long sleeve, henleys, etc.  It was hard to narrow it down to what we bought.  I actually went back and picked up a few more shirts not pictured!   I was impressed with the pants/jean selection.  We score jeans as low as $6.20 and the most we paid was $15.  These are quality jeans with adjustable waists.  As a mom of a boy, I know what to look for in pants.  We need quality, not thin pants that will tear or get a hole in them easily.  Boys are always dirty, falling, snagging themselves, etc. and these jeans will hold up against his adventures!


Head back to school with the latest trends from Kohl's! Find everything you need from shoes and backpacks to hoodies and school uniforms. Stock up on play clothes and weekend outfits in bold colors and bright patterns they'll love to wear. From little boys' socks to juniors' dresses, find the perfect staple pieces for both little and big kids, all at great prices.

Heading to college? Find the coolest dorm décor and the perfect dorm bedding for your new home away from home. Stay organized with storage cubes, shower caddies and more. Shop Kohl's for back-to-school clothes and more.

So will you be hitting Kohl's for all your back to school shopping?  Well I sure hope so!  Soon  I will be hosting a $100 gift card giveaway to help you get a jump start on your shopping!

Connect with Kohl’s on Facebook and on Twitter.  Follow the back-to-school conversation with #Kohls101

LEGO: Legends of Chima – Chi, Tribes, and Betrayals Season 1, Part 2 is out now!


Once a pristine, natural paradise, the Kingdom of CHIMA has become a battle ground for eight animal tribes. Best friends are now enemies. The animals fight for control of a natural resource called CHI, a powerful element that is both a source of life and potential destruction. Only a few brave heroes in CHIMA understand the true nature of CHI, and the possible downfall of CHIMA that will result from its misuse. Their stories, and the stories of those who seek to destroy them, are known as... THE LEGENDS OF CHIMA.

My son is a huge LEGO CHIMA fan, I can not even tell you  how many sets we have! In this second part of season one the battle for the CHI still rages on in CHIMA. Laval the Lion (he so reminds me of Thunder Cats from my childhood) struggles to reunite the tribes and to restore  friendship.  Will he rebuild the bond? Experience new  friendships and bigger adventures with 10 new LEGO Legends of Chima episodes! Your little LEGO fan will thank you!
