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!

I used my VIP visitor card (which anyone living outside the greater Vancouver area can get at guest services) and got 15% off from both @dynamiteclothing & @frankandoak — on top of that, if you spend more than $350 (which we def did last week) you can go back to guest services for a special gift. Say what!
