Get your kids ready for school with @Kohls - Your One Stop Shop! #Kohls101 #Back2School #FindYourYes #ad #BeYourself

It is hard to believe that school is starting in a few weeks.  Summer is winding down and now school supply lists are posted online and stores are filling with supplies and book bags.  That is jut the beginning of everything you need to get the kids ready for school.  If you have not got to experience the craziness of back to school shopping, it doesn't just begin with paper and end with a glue stick.  Kids need new clothes, if they are like mine, they lived in shorts all summer and all their pants from last school year look more like the are capris then jeans.  Flip flops need to retire and sneakers need to be bought.  New back packs need purchased, time to replace the lunch bag that had one too many food items left in it over night, etc.  Well this year instead of hitting multiple stores, why not do all your back to school shopping this year at Kohl's!


Kohl’s will make your family’s back-to-school shopping trip easier than ever before by offering school supplies in-store! They have all the school supplies your kids  need from folders to notebooks and pens to pencil cases.  From bright and vibrant pens and pencils that your daughter will love to cool  soccer folders that your little athlete will love, Kohl's has it all.  They even had a 40 pack of various erasers from toppers to big pink ones.  My daughter had to have the the erasers, her back to school list required a minimum for 12 erasers...there must be a lot of erasing in 4th grade!

Back packs and lunch sacks were a must for this year.  My son is more of simplistic child and chose a black JanSport, while my daughter went with a purple bag and lunch bag.  I had no idea Kohl’s carried JanSport bags!  They are such quality bags that last forever, I still have mine from college!  I can only imagine how long the one I bought him.

On the topic of bags, the lunch bag selection is great at Kohl's, plus all the items you can get for inside the lunch bags!   We are big time lunch packers, even Mom and Dad pack for work!   So of course a must have is quality containers.  We have the standard sandwich containers already, but a nice pack of Rubbermaid containers are perfect for snacks, salads, fruits, leftover and more.  Kohl's even has some super unique containers, like snack containers for veggies with separate holder for your ranch!  They even have salad containers!  You can pack your lunch box in style and it is a great way to teach the kids to reuse, no tossing plastic baggies!   Whether you are a child or adult and in need of a water bottle (our school allows kids to have them on their desks), then pick up a Contigo brand one at Kohl's!  I was introduced to the coffee mug and loved it, the water bottle is just as amazing.  Clip it on to the back pack for easy transportation home on the weekends to wash!

Do you label your children's items?  It is a must at our school.  In the past I would order pre-printed labels from Mabel Labels.  I was so excited to see Mabel Labels at Kohl's and the were the Write Away style!
These are the super cool labels that you can create yourself.  No need to order a ton of one child's name, this way you can use the pack for multiple children! They are so cute and such a great value.

No back to school shopping trip is complete without new clothes and shoes!  This year our little man finally started growing taller.  He seemed to hit that magical 48 inches mark that allowed him to hit the amusement parks and water slides without issue. That being said, it also meant that all his pants from the spring were too short.  While this trip for him was more about the pants, we were able to pick up a couple of nice tops and new Addidas sneakers for him.  The blue shirt pictured is from the Tek Gear line.  I have bought this brand before for my husband, but excited to find styles in the boys department as well!  These shirts are cool and  comfortable.


No my little fashionista was a different story.   We seemed to purchase more for her in the top department, especially the super cute and soft cotton MUDD brand shirts.  They had so many cute styles from simple pandas, color blocked pooches to friendly owls!  This year they offer some super cute tops that come with matching infinity scarves as well.  Pair with jeans for school or dress it up a bit with a skirt for church.

I also noticed some of the tops are longer and more flowing.  This is great for those with self-conscious children who are afraid their top is too tight or short!
