As a mom, I know all about running around trying to get all the school supplies Reese will need before school starts in August. For some weird reason, the back-to-school list keeps getting longer and longer every year, huh? But one thing I can never buy enough of is Kleenex® Facial Tissue. In a way, it’s one of the most important items for me, and I make sure to include a box in my daughter’s backpack. We all know how fast germs spread in a classroom! Back To School Shopping List
At some point over the next few months, your kid’s going to catch something, and when they do, they’re going to need something to wipe their little noses with. While I was out shopping for school supplies at Costco the other day, I thought, why not become a classroom hero and buy a couple of boxes of Kleenex Facial Tissue for my kid’s classroom as well?
At Costco, I can buy enough tissues to have at home. But while I was there, I felt like going the extra mile and ended up buying the Bundle Pack, which came with extra Box Tops. It’s not just that I like to buy in bulk, (because I do!) But this year, I wanted to do a little something extra as a parent and give back to my kid’s school. After all, they do for our children, I felt like it was time to give back, so I purchased a few extra boxes of Kleenex Facial Tissue for my kid’s classmates as well. Back To School Shopping List
Besides, these tissues aren’t just for blowing noses. The Kleenex Facial Tissues can be used on hands, too. And they’re thick and absorbent which allows kids to easily clean up any mess, such as wiping their mouths after devouring a delicious Sloppy Joe. I also love the fact that they’re soft and easily disposable, too. Back To School Shopping List
Each bundle includes 15 Bonus Box Tops and as a Costco member, you can save $4 on the Kleenex bundle pack if you make your purchase between 8/9 and 9/2. The discount will be applied when you get to the register and it’s so worth it!
I know what you’re thinking. Money is probably tight right now and you can barely afford your own child’s school supplies as it is. But if you really think about it, schools do a lot for our little ones with a really limited budget. Do you know how much tighter school budgets have gotten lately? School districts are strapped for cash and can only fork over so much money to ensure that classrooms are stocked with supplies. Back To School Shopping List
These days it seems like teachers no longer have any choice but to take money out of their own pockets, (which is honestly insane!) to buy extra school supplies like glue sticks, erasers, dry erase markers, and pencils, all of which you can buy at Costco while you’re out getting your Kleenex Facial Tissues. You’ll easily become the ultimate classroom hero by helping your child’s teacher stock up on extra supplies that they would have to likely purchase themselves.
If you think about it, most classrooms have about 25 to 30 kids, and they all need supplies like markers and tissues. I know I talk about how busy I am most of the time, and how I love nothing more than to relax at home with my daughter. But if I really believe in a cause, I try to find the time to participate or help. Back To School Shopping List
I want Reese to know that every now and then, our neighbors, friends and even our classmates and teachers need a helping hand, and it’s up to us to find a way to help them in any way we can. Back To School Shopping List
I really didn’t feel like waiting ‘til Christmas to be in the spirit of giving, which is why I decided to purchase a bunch of supplies which I’m donating to my kid’s classroom. I’m glad for this opportunity to be a classroom hero and to help Reese’s school.
My kid and her classmates will likely grow up to become engineers, doctors, dancers, writers, artists, singers or lawyers. But they can’t do it without a little help from us. You might not be able to save the world, but you can certainly save the day!
