Kick-off your shopping trip with a brand new backpack! Dollar General offers a broad selection in a variety of colors and sizes so I’m sure you will find one your little loves. Next look for the necessary supplies but be open to a fun twist! (You may have a wish list or guide from the school by class or grade level to go by.) Here are a few of the fundamentals we picked out:

3-Ring Binder
Loose Leaf Paper
Composition Book
Index Cards
Liquid Glue
Pencil Box

Under the current circumstances, regardless of the educational environment your children will be learning in (whether at home or at school) I know one of a momma’s main concerns is going to be the health and safety of our babies (at any age!) So head on over to the Health and Wellness area of your neighborhood Dollar General and snag hand sanitizer, masks, wipes, gloves, tissues and anything else that will help put your heart as ease while protecting your precious kiddos.

Ladies, let’s talk lunch! I picked up everything I needed to pack lunch with a punch from Dollar General! They have the cutest assortment of lunch boxes and bags if your babies are going back to school, but they also carry all the staples we need to enjoy lunch at home. Paper plates, plastic baggies, napkins, and utensils can all be located in the Household aisle. When it comes to Brady’s lunchbox, I like to be prepared for anything! I try to send both a substantial lunch and a couple small snack items when I can. Dollar General carries a selection of Lunchables, crackers, cookies, chips, fruit cups, individual juices, sandwiches, basically everything we need to send our little smarties with a stacked sack lunch!

Girls, it still gets so much BETTER! Save even more on top of Dollar General’s already low prices with digital coupons!
