I received a gift card from Fruit of the Loom in exchange for writing this blog post. Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own.
When it comes to Back to School shopping, my mental list tends to always include most of the same standards that have been on there for parents for decades: backpack, folders, markers, shoes, lunchbox, etc.
But in the rush of getting kids prepared and ready for a new school year to start, why does it seem like the basic necessities are the ones that are typically forgotten? Sure, you know all about the cool new jeans that your daughter has been asking for, but do you have any idea if she has enough t-shirts, underwear or socks?
This Back to School season, don't forget to stock up on the school supplies that kids really need while also saving some cash at the same time... it's time to say Thank Goodness It's Back to School (#TGIBTS) with Fruit of the Loom!
For some, the Back to School season is stressful and filled with the fear of the unknown. For others, it is exciting, a return to a beloved routine full of friends and learning. Around here, we're in the latter category, with the entire family counting down the days until the new school year begins.
Both of my kids adore their school, can't wait to meet their teachers, are yearning to get to see their friends every day and are, in general, filled with happy emotions about getting to go back to what they love. Most definitely #TGIBTS!
As for me, even if I may shed a tear or two as I watch them walk into school with barely a wave, I can't help but be excited for everything that awaits them inside those doors. I couldn't be more proud each time I hear about how hard they work, how well they are doing, how much they care about their peers, and more.
At the same time, yes, #TGIBTS so that there might actually be a second of two of peace and quiet around here! Even though I know that my days are going to fly by in a blur of volunteering, field trips, PTO meetings, cooking, cleaning, laundry and more, I can still dream that they're going to look like this, right?
Regardless of what Back to School looks like at your house (or in your dreams), everyone wants to put their best foot forward during the new school year... which is now easier and more affordable than ever!
Looking to set your entire family up for success from the moment that they get dressed in the morning? Just check out the diverse selection of colors, patterns, and style options that Fruit of the Loom offers with their seasonal bonus packs!
With one, two or even three extra items free per pack, Fruit of the Loom kids' and teens' bonus packs (there are also men's and women's bonus packs available for those teens who have outgrown the children sizes) have a chance to express their true colors with the first thing they put on in the morning in even greater numbers.
Admit it, your unmentionables play a major part in your confidence and how you feel about your complete outfit (and therefore your mood) for the day, right? Kids are no different! That's why it is time to head to Walmart to give kids a fresh start this school year and kick off 2014-2015 the right way!
My girls were more than excited to head to Walmart to pick up some Fruit of the Loom bonus packs and it didn't take long before we were browsing through the variety available.
It seemed as though everywhere we looked there was free, free, FREE Fruit of the Loom waiting for us!
The colors! The patterns! The different options in style and cut and "heights" of socks... my girls just might have spent all day debating the merits of each fashionable option.
When I finally steered their focus to the underwear, I found that I had a captive and curious audience as we talked about the four different styles available as well as the convenient size chart to use to figure out which would fit each of them best.
Once the final decisions had been made, we headed home to wash our new purchases and get started tossing out anything too small, worn or just falling plain falling apart.
I love being able to take a deep breath of satisfaction knowing that my kids will be reaching for the comfort and quality of their new Fruit of the Loom pieces as they start each and every school day!
This year, let Fruit of the Loom and their bonus packs get your children and teens ready to head off to school with confidence, comfort and style. I couldn't be happier that we were able to pick up these necessities at such a great price — and with the three free pairs of underwear in each pack, we stocked up for even less!
Be sure to visit Fruit of the Loom to find out more about their full collection of products for men, women and children (socks, underwear, t-shirts, camis, tank tops and more!) and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as well.
Then, head to your nearest Walmart to take advantage of this value — bonus packages are also available online if you prefer to shop from the comfort of your own home instead.
Plus, in the spirit of #TGIBTS, one person will be even more prepared to stock up on all of the basics and essentials that their kids need to start off the school year on the right foot as well, because...
One lucky person will win a $75 Walmart gift card
