7 Tips For Back to School Shopping With Your Kids

  1. Check Their Closet First

    First step, go through your child’s closet first. For us, I swear the same shirt and shorts have been worn all summer long and we are always surprised at how many clothes our kids actually have. Don’t assume there aren’t clothes in those drawers and make sure to see which ones fit and don’t fit. Once you get those sorted, you will have a much better idea of what you are going to really need for back to school.

  2. Make a List of What Your Child Needs

    Now that you know what isn’t in your child’s closet, write down what you need. Start with the most important at the top so that you make sure that those are crossed off first. Don’t forget to write down the school supplies too, we will be doing that all at once!

  3. Choose to Shop Where You Can Get Everything at Once

    Why make more then one day out of back to school shopping when you can go get it done all at once. Chose a local shopping centre that you can shop clothes and stationary supplies.

  4. Make a Day of it

    Have fun and take a day dedicated to back to school shopping. If you are headed to Queensborough Landing they have restaurants (both take out and sit down) where you can enjoy a meal with the kids and/or grab some ice cream from Marble Slab Creamery.

  5. Stores with Kid’s Play Areas are a Bonus!

    To say that I loved this play area at the Carters/OshKosh would be an understatement. While each of the kids tried on their clothes at least one of the kids was playing with a toy or watching the show. If you can’t accomplish have number 7 (don’t go outnumbered) this tip will come to the rescue big time!Tips for Back to School Shopping and Giveaway with Queensborough Landing

  6. Shop Where the Sales Are

    Keep the costs low and keep your eyes on the sales. When we did some shopping last week we were so pumped at all the sales that Queensborough had through out their centre. You can even get a good look at the featured shop promotions on their website before visiting.

  7. Don’t Go Outnumbered

    This might be the most important one, depending on the ages and obedience of your kids. For me, I couldn’t have done it without the help of my husband. We chose to go in the evening after he was off work and it was a great idea as there was less traffic on the drive over and less hustle in the stores. The kids had room to explore and find what they were looking for and it made the whole shopping experience better doing it as a family.

What’s even better then using these tips and having a successful Back to School shopping adventure? Using these tips and WINNING a $750 shopping spree from Queensborough Landing. Seriously though, could you image. All your shopping would be done, plus you would most likely be able to snatch up some extras! Yah, amazing right!

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
