5 Must-Haves to Make School Mornings Easier from Canadian Tire + Giveaway

back-to-school canadian tire

I have been lazy this summer with the sleeping in and lack of routine but now is the time where I am looking for products to help make our school mornings easier. Sometimes something as simple as a place to house the kids belongings or a machine to house our coffee is the difference between a WTF morning and one that went off hitch-free. Some of our must-have items to make our mornings easier can be found on sale at Canadian Tire right now. I love getting a deal on items I was going to buy anyways 😉

5 Must-Haves to Make School Mornings Easier from Canadian Tire

Canadian Tire Back to School

  1. This 3-Cube Storage Bench is a welcome addition to any family with kids. With ample storage you can have a space for the kids to put their backpacks and homework keeping the front hallway clear of clutter. Hopefully it will be the push they need to not drop all of their stuff on the floor when they enter the house.
  2. Repeat after me–a cell phone is not an alarm clock. Come September 6th we will be getting up at least 2 hours earlier (5 hours earlier for my late sleeper) and no cell phone will be able to wake us us. Get one of these Westclox Silver Rectangle Alarm Clocks and place it as far away from you as possible but still withing hearing range. The mornings are going to be brutal at first so be prepared.
  3. Now that my husband has joined team coffee our single serve brewer is getting worked overtime. Realistically we will drink many cups of coffee before the kids leave for school so that we can comprehend what needs to get done and that can get pricey.  This Hamilton Beach BrewStation™ 12-cup Coffee Maker promises one-hand dispensing, 12-cup brew and even a brew strength option that is calling my name. If that is not enough to convince you than the 50% sale on it should do the trick.
  4. My house is full of containers but the kids have been using them to store snails and worms this summer so it is time we get a few new pieces. This Starfrit 8 piece Lock & Lock Lunch Container Kit comes with a small, medium and large container as well as a beverage container. Get one for each kid, label them, and get your kids to start practice
  5. This Six-Drawer storage tower is perfect for a week’s worth of school clothes in one handy space. No more whiney kids saying they don’t know what to wear. Spend some time on Sunday filling in the container with your kids and sit back drinking the coffee as your mornings go off without a hitch.

    I bought the Westclox Silver Rectangle Alarm Clock & love how you can press the top & it lights up in the dark.. Is also silent not like the windup clocks that tick, this takes batteries

    It’s amazing, all the different things you can get from Canadian Tire. I remember when I was a kid Canadian Tire was a small hardware store but they’ve grown to have everything you need.
