10+ Items You Have to Snag During Back to School Shopping

Date Thu, July 21 2016

I don’t have kids, so I don’t view back-to-school shopping like some people do. It seems like you’re either fully prepared and know where to get the greatest deals, including Amazon Basics for some products, or you’re running around last minute because you forgot this or that — and your little ones aren’t pleased anyway. Ha!

I’m lucky that I don’t have to compete with parents, but I do find that back-to-school time is perfect for stocking up on certain things, especially household storage. Those plastic cards that are so convenient, baskets and large totes are among them. Although, you can score a good deal if you wait until after Halloween or Christmas for some of those items, you’re usually stuck with holiday themed options.

Speaking of color, back to school time is the best time to get bright and colorful housewares. My friend Dez loves stuff like this, so whenever I see a vibrant cookware set, I always think of her! I’m not sure why people who aren’t living in dorms wouldn’t want to buy those things, too, but at least you can get them at some point!

Another thing I find that’s great to buy now is bedding sets, especially the all-in-one sets. If you’re looking for some new sheets and a comforter at a good price, now’s the time to hit up your favorite big box store. I know I just saw a bunch of options at Walmart, and several of them were reversible.

On the same trip, I saw that my favorite stick vac was on sale. I’m on my second one, now, and will eventually replace it. I could buy another and keep it stored until I need it at prices like these.

There were so many other things that just seem so cheap right now:

I haven’t yet purchased anything, but I’ve had a good look at Walmart. I’m excited to see what Target has, too! Do you keep an eye out for anything during this shopping season that I might have missed? Let me know in the comments!
