Thanks to Amazon for sponsoring this post.
It’s that time of year. Back to school season. Many of your kids may have been in school for weeks while others are just starting. Here in Michigan, school doesn’t start until after Labor Day. It’s actually the law! It helps extend the tourist season and gives the kids the chance to enjoy every last drop of summer. Whether you start school in August or September, one thing is at the top of every parents’ list – back to school shopping.
While it’s fun hitting the local stores with your kids to check things off their list, it can get frustrating too. Often they don’t have everything you need and you find yourself driving from one store to the next and then the other across town. And you still might not find it all. On top of that the closer it is to the start school, the more likely items are going to be priced higher or out of stock. Who has time (or money) for that? That’s why I love Amazon. All the other parents in the neighborhood know it too – we get Amazon deliveries multiple times a week, it’s just so convenient!
In just a few clicks, the kids and I can buy everything on their list as well as fun extras too, and then we still have time to squeeze in a family game of kickball or a trip down to our neighborhood lake for a swim. Amazon is the one-stop-shop for all things BTS – allowing moms, dads and kids to find products that are unique and individualized as they are, which gives kids confidence walking through the halls on the first day of school!
I was excited to see that Amazon has a Back To School Storefront which offers customers the best deals and unparalleled convenience, as well as a curated selection of must have BTS items and the largest variety of products available. It makes your shopping easier and makes your kids happy too.
I put together this list of Must Haves from the Amazon BTS Storefront which is a great way to save time and money on back to school shopping. Even if your kids have already started, these items will help make the transition to school easier, exciting, and more fun.

My daughter has this StyleLab Fashion Angels Magic Sequin Backpack and adores it.
