Disclosure: I attended a Staples back-to-school event and was provided with a gift card. All opinions are 100% my own.
Here in New York, we have over a week left of back-to-school shopping time. My kids don’t start school til’ September 4th so I’m still scrambling around to get some last minute items they need for school.
I attended a back-to-school Staples event a few weeks ago so my kids already knew what they wanted to get. I brought back some wonderful things for my girls and they couldn’t be any happier……but they still want (and need) more!
Does it ever stop??
My son, on the other hand, starts college on Monday! Talk about time flying by! Treasure those baby moments because time flashes right before your eyes. Before you know it, your kid will be starting college just like mine.
