Have you started your back to school shopping yet? What items do you have on your back to school shopping list? Clothes , school supplies , did you remember everyday household essentials to make life easier? I love to stock up on products that I know I will need around the house. It makes life so much easier with such a busy family!
So in preparation for getting ready for back to school. I headed out to my local Walmart to do my shopping this weekend. I have already bought most of the kids back to school supplies, but I needed to make sure I grabbed those everyday household products that we use on a daily basis. Here is what the top of my back to school shopping list looked like:
At my local Walmart, I spotted the Scott® Tissue 20 Roll Pack, the Viva® Vantage® 6 Big Rolls and the Kleenex® Trusted Care* 3 Bundle Pack all in the same general area, at the back of my store. I was able to grab the items I needed without wasting time searching all over the store!
Not only are these items that I use daily around the house, the Kleenex® Trusted Care* 3 Bundle Pack is an item that I donate to each of my children’s classrooms. So not only was I shopping for home, I was shopping for items to donate to my children’s school. And as an added bonus, these products all have Box Tops on them. In fact they had DOUBLE Box Tops on them! Our family has made it a family project to collect Box Tops to help support our local schools. We even ask family and friends to save Box Tops for us!
My kids enjoy crafts and making projects. So we decided to have some fun and create a school supply organizer out of the empty tissue box, empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls. Repurposing items can be a lot of FUN!
- empty tissue box
- empty toilet paper rolls and/or paper towel rolls
My boys love super heroes so we just left the empty tissue box as it was. You could use construction paper to cover the tissue box. Then color or paint the construction paper with whatever design you want.
Step 1: Cut the top of the tissue box. I left an edge on each side of the top. You can cut more or less, depending on how much space you need.
Step 2: Cut toilet paper or paper towel rolls to size. I used toilet paper rolls and trimmed them just enough so they were even with the top of the tissue box.
Step 3: Next I taped 3 sets of 2 toilet paper rolls together, so I would have 3 sets of double rolls.
Step 4: Place the 3 sets of double toilet paper rolls inside the opening of the tissue box.
Step 5: Put any school supplies you use into the rolls. We put in markers, colored pencils, pens and pencils, scissors and then we even had space for a small notepad at the end!
Not only was I able to stock up on everyday household essentials at Walmart. I am also helping our local school by donating the Kleenex® Trusted Care* 3 Bundle Packs AND the DOUBLE Box Tops on them. Plus, my kids helped make super fun school supply organizers. It’s a win, win, win situation!
