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!

  • “When’s the last time you did something for the first time?” Those were words spoken to our group before starting our Tough Mudder course this past weekend in Whistler. Holy moly guys, I was nervous getting started on that course. Let’s just say... nervous shits are real 😅😂🙊 but that’s what makes it so great. Doing something that literally scares the shit outta you. We all pushed through, all 16km and 25 obstacles and it was FUN, hard but really freaking fun. Even though I’m hobbling around today, dang foot cramp (and literally sore all over) I’m so pumped on doing something new, pushing myself and having such an amazing group of friends tackle it together.

PS our men of tough mudder not pictured but SO equally appreciated.

  • Opened up my second Maple Box today and loving the natural and organic products that I am able to discover. The @hollowtree1987 candle and @sealuxe scrub are two of my favourites already.

I’ve loved how each box has introduced me to both self care and wellness products focused on creating healthier lifestyles. Head to @maplemagazinecanada to discover more info on ordering for yourself. Spring box available, while supplies last (and last I heard it was limited) #ad #maplemagazine #mapleboxcanada

  • Looking at the calendar like.... it can't actually be Father's Day this week can it? For anyone still looking for a gift, I have a deal to share! @sodastreamcanada currently has a bundle promotion running on their website until June 16th where you can save $20 when you bundle a FIZZI (your choice of colour), Soda Press Co. Pink Grapefruit flavour and the 'Love Your Planet' Bottle. For everything our Dads do for us, the least we can do is get them a gift we know they’ll love. See direct link in my stories for promotion details!
.
I also created a super yummy drink for you all to try. Inspired by Father's Day, I put together a mixed drink using my SodaStream FIZZI + their Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to create a Pink Grapefruit and Gin Cocktail (or mocktail) recipe. Here's how to make it:

Ingredients:

Flavoured sparkling water using 2 tbsp of the Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour by @sodastreamcanada
1 ounce gin (optional)
Sliced grapefruit
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions:

Use your SodaStream to turn regular tap water into sparkling water in just a few seconds. Once carbonated, add 2 tbsp of SodaStream’s Pink Grapefruit Soda Press Co. flavour to sparkling water and mix. Fill glass to the top with ice. Pour in gin (optional), then fill glass with Pink Grapefruit flavoured sparkling water. Enjoy!
