Getting Ready for Back to School with DealDash

As I was wandering the aisles of my local big box store today I saw that they have all of their “Back to School” items highlighted. Let’s see what we can get on DealDash for school!

Two out of my three kids will be going to school this year, and it’s amazing how much stuff that they need to bring, even in preschool! Gone are the days when all you needed was a pencil and a piece of paper, the schools in my area hand out huge lists of items that everyone is supposed to bring. Some of them aren’t even kid-related at all! Let’s see what we can get on DealDash to lighten the shopping burden.

Backpacks! All kids from preschool on up through high school and college need backpacks. Luckily for us, DealDash has a huge, and I mean HUGE selection of backpacks to choose from. There are waterproof backpacks, rough and tough military style backpacks, regular standard school backpacks, and even messenger bag type satchels. If you or your kids or grandkids need a backpack be sure to check out the selection on DealDash at this link right here.

Most kids from middle school on up will need their own laptops or at least a Chromebook to do their schoolwork on at home. I don’t know about at your house, but the way things usually work at my house is Mommy gets a new laptop and then she passes down her old one to the kids. Well, DealDash has so many laptops, Chromebooks, and iPads to choose from. I can get myself an awesome new laptop and pass my old one down to the kids.

No matter how many clothes your kids already have in their closets there’s just something fun about going back to school shopping for clothes. DealDash has some great gift cards that you can win to go clothes shopping for back to school such as Target, Wal*Mart, TJ Maxx, Sears, and many more. Just check out the Gift Cards Category right here and see what you can find.

 

 

I hope that this article has encouraged you to check out the kid’s items on DealDash, it’s one of my favorite types of products. Enjoy the last of the summer before school starts. good luck and happy bidding everyone!

 

Back to School with DealDash

What three words make kids groan and parents smile? I guess the title kind of gives it away — BACK TO SCHOOL!!

The summer is winding down, and if you have been out shopping at any of the big box retailers lately I’m sure you have seen that they have put up their Back to School displays up. Even though I wasn’t the best student and I wasn’t really that crazy about school I LOVED school supplies. Whenever my parents and I would go into a store in August and see the Back to School displays I would always get excited. New backpack! New calculator! New notebooks with something cute on the front! But what if your little one isn’t so excited about starting school? Here are some tips to get your little one more comfortable with the idea.

 

For most small kids their biggest source of anxiety is “Will I like my new teacher?” If your child’s school has one, open house or back-to-school night is a great way for your child to meet their new teacher, and maybe even some kids in their new class. If your school doesn’t have an open house night before school starts try to at least find the teacher’s picture on a school website or in a yearbook, so your child can put a name with a face. There are other worries, of course, but this particular one ranks up there as number one.

Another big fear that kids can have before school starts is “Will I make any friends?” If you live in a neighborhood, try taking a walk around the neighborhood after dinner to see if you can find any families outside with kids the same age to chat about school with. Best case scenario they have a child that will be in the same class as your child, but if not, perhaps you can at least secure your child a “bus buddy” to sit with the first day of school.

Now here comes the fun part! Get the class supply list from your child’s school and take a special shopping trip with him/her. Having the right tools will help them feel prepared and ready to learn. While keeping basic items in mind, allow for a couple of splurges like a cool backpack or a cute re-usable lunch bag. These simple extras make going back to school a lot more fun.
