If they haven’t already, your kids will be going back to school soon. They will have a school supply list coming in the mail or online. GET those things their teacher requests! Get the name brand unless you really, really can’t. And get extra. A couple parents covering two kids’ worth of Clorox wipes or Crayola crayons might save the teacher hundreds of dollars!
But what the schools neglect to mention is what MOM will need for the Back to School season. Don’t worry. I have you covered.
Mom’s Back To School Supply List
Coffee (or tea, or hot toddies) – Whatever wakes you up early in the morning to get the little snot buckets on the bus
Boogie Wipes and Cold Medicine – Speaking of snot buckets, back to school is more like back to germs. Your kids are going to start getting sick again. Be prepared.
Wine/Beer/Liquor or any mix of these three – Back to school means day drinking! What? Am I the only one who does that? Whatever, you’ll want it after helping with homework.
Amazon Echo to ask Alexa to answer the homework questions you can’t. Or, more accurately, don’t want to.
A Puzzle or a good book. Unless you have some kind of emergency, the first week should be used to decompress from Summer! Now is a good time to try day-drinking if you haven’t yet.
Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial – If you don’t have it already sign up now. You will be able to order all the project supplies your kid needs by the end of the week and all the books borrowed from the school library and promptly lost or destroyed.
And finally, to show those teachers you really appreciate them give THEM the Gift of Amazon Prime! You can gift 3 months or a year, and if the recipient is already a member, they get a gift card instead! WIN WIN!
Tell me, what is on YOUR back to school supply list? Do you finally buy that stash of cookies since your kids won’t be pawing through the pantry all day for snacks? Do you go out and get some spa services? How do you reward yourself for keeping the kids alive all Summer and making it back to the first day of school?
