Back-to-School Made Easy With Impressions PR


Back-to-School time is coming near.

Don’t shoot the messenger but I am sure you have seen the displays in most major retailers as summer stock gets moved into the clearance section and we are inundated with all things pencils, markers, and fancy lunch containers.


Back to School Made Easy With Impressions PR

The lovely ladies at Impressions PR are always on their A-game when it comes to bringing the best brands together for the media. I love how I can leave my house once and be able to show all of you a multitude of good brands and ideas.

This year I got to mingle with some of my fave retailers and new ones as well. Without further ado let’s begin.

Staples Canada-As with last year’s event Staples brought what seemed like one of everything and it is no surprise why we do a large portion of our shopping there. It is a one-stop shop and this year they are all about being expressive (emoji what?!?!). Keep your eyes open for an upcoming giveaway in the coming weeks and a more in depth review.

Well.ca-Whether you are a crunchy mom or not you can not deny the fact that the Well.ca goodies are great. Emma fell in love with these fluf lunch bags and I love that they deliver to your door.

Mabel’s Labels-When it comes to spending your hard-earned dollars on goodies you want to make sure your kids are bringing them home. Labelling is the way it’s going to happen and Mabel’s has some great designs and deals for back-to-school.

Entripy- Entripy has the largest collection of customizable goods online and they are affordable as well.  They offer Fruit of the Loom products as well as many other name brands. They offer a great 15% discount for schools on Jerzees products  and 10% off to schools on all other brands (including Fruit of the Loom).

Toronto Library-Whether you have a big reader or one who is still on the brink of discovering the beauty of books, the Toronto Library’s have something for everyone. You can still join the TD summer Reading Club and check out your local branch for drop-in programs they are hosting.

Made Good Foods-I want to say that this stuff is gross because it is so good for you but that would be a lie. The kids and I devoured the bars and granola minis in the matter of days and I have no shame in admitting it. School safe, peanut and tree nut free and made with nutrients from 6 vegetable sources (spinach, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, beets & shitake mushrooms). Vegan, Kosher, Gluten-Free, non-gmo certified and Canada Organic. They basically put all the goodness of the world into these things and gave you no option to say no.

back-to-school impressions pr

Kobo-I died a little bit at the Kobo display. Seriously there was too much water and a e-reader in the big jar of water. The mom on a budget had flashes of cell phones in toilets, expensive toys left outside while a torrential downpour happened, and now this, this Kobo Aura H2O fully submersed. But guess what? That e-reader not only survived it shone bright, but not glaring bright because it is back-lit and all fancy.

Panda MandarinPanda Mandarin is focused on teaching Mandarin to both adults and children. You can opt-in to classes that are both on site and online. With a emphasis on highly interactive activities such as music, art and games it allows the learning to come easy. My kids will be starting a trial month come September to see how they like it. Stay tuned for an update in October.

Lice Squad-I don’t care who you are or how many years you have been parenting, the moment that slip comes home with your kids about a “possible” interaction your child had with someone infected with lice–you panic. We have been spared so far but I have always known a time would come when I had to call the lovely ladies at the Lice Squad to do the dirty work.

    Set a budget for back to school shopping and try to stick with it, it is very easy to get carried away buying “cute” things that you really don’t need.

  2. Christine Holliday
    July 29, 2016 / 5:47 pm

    You have to make them feel confident on their first day!! new duds, backpak, little things always make them feel better..

  3. Amy Heffernan
    July 29, 2016 / 5:51 pm

    I like to wait until the last day to get supplies. I find they are ALOT cheaper!

  4. Krista M
    July 29, 2016 / 5:52 pm

    You don’t unnecessarily have to buy all new stuff every year. Both my kids backpacks are still appropriate for their age (still have the “cool factor”) and are in excellent condition so they will be re-using them through this school year which will save me around $50.

  5. Christine Murray
    July 29, 2016 / 5:54 pm

    This would be excellent. My daughter needs a bunch of new stuff. Thank you for this offer.

    Don;t do your school shopping the last minute

  7. Holly Myke
    July 29, 2016 / 5:57 pm

    I wait for sales to come along and then stock up! Like 0.10 loose leaf paper or 0.15 pencil crayons

    I find Costco has great quality & deals on backpacks, lunch pails & clothing

  8. Jen Mach
    July 29, 2016 / 6:10 pm

    Could really use this money for my kids school supplies

  9. Tara Betterley
    July 29, 2016 / 6:12 pm

    I buy alot of the back to school stuff at the dollar store – they lose it so fast!

  10. Jo B
    July 29, 2016 / 6:28 pm

    Check your flyers for school supplies so that you can price match as much as possible.

  12. Jennifer L.
    July 29, 2016 / 6:47 pm

    My tip is to start early and keep an eye on the flyers. Buy what you need as it goes on sale.

  13. July 29, 2016 / 6:59 pm

    My tip is to buy things during the winter time. I have so many school supplies that even my great-great-great grandchildren won’t be able to finish.

  14. ginette4
    July 29, 2016 / 7:04 pm

    My tip is a few weeks before school starts have your children go to bed nightly earlier and earlier till they are back in the groove of going back to bed at their same time as when they are in school

  15. Tainan Lu
    July 29, 2016 / 7:06 pm

    I always stock up school supplies when they are on sale. Probably I don’t need to buy anything this year. 🙂

  16. Donna L.
    July 29, 2016 / 7:11 pm

    I like to shop early for best selection.

  17. July 29, 2016 / 7:12 pm

    If your kiddos need new shoes, don’t wait ’til the last minute to buy them — we waited till mid-August one year (which we didn’t think was that late) and had the hardest time finding indoor and outdoor sneakers.

  18. B
    July 29, 2016 / 7:23 pm

    I always try to keep an eye out for deals near the labor day long weekend as well as during the year, there is always deals on stationary or kids clothes.

    July 29, 2016 / 7:35 pm

    my back to school tip is to re-use the same materials from last school year if possible to save money before going back to school shopping

  20. Stacie H
    July 29, 2016 / 7:39 pm

    Make lunches and snacks at home. You can get lots of ideas on Pinterest and Save a ton of money. I do my grocery shopping Saturday, make the lunches for the week on Sundays and all week they are ready to grab and go!

  21. Piroska

  27. Jeffrey Rossnagel

  28. Bailey Dexter
    July 29, 2016 / 10:54 pm

    My favorite Back to School tip is to prepare snack & treat that freeze well now so when it is time to pack a lunch they are already made. I do muffins, loafs, trail mix, any kind of a roll you name it it is in the freezer!

  29. Andrea Amy
    July 30, 2016 / 1:21 am

    No trick, but I plan early. Its not even quite the end of July, but I’ve already purchased my 6, 7 and 9 year old’s school supplies, and their back to school clothes. In the next couple of weeks I will get the stuff for my 18 year old son, so that all that is left for the end of August is buying stuff for their school snacks and lunches.

  30. Vanessa Ethridge
    July 30, 2016 / 9:16 am

    Prepare lunches the night before as well as lay out clothes and pack backpack so you save time in the mornings!

  31. July 30, 2016 / 9:43 am

    Get clothing and lunches ready the night before to ensure a smooth morning.

    When you make salad on Sunday, bag up in snack size baggies or containers cut up veggies, like peppers, cucumbers, celery., baby carrots, and do the same for cut up oranges, melon, grapes etc, and then you have handy snacks for work and school lunches.

  34. maggin penney
    July 30, 2016 / 10:21 am

  35. Kathleen Roffey

  36. Pam
    July 30, 2016 / 11:10 am

  37. Patrick Siu
    July 30, 2016 / 11:12 am

    Buy quality product, going cheap might end up costing more in the long run.

  38. Steph
    July 30, 2016 / 11:27 am

    I like to have baskets with names on it, so you are able to put all your school belongings into one place so they wont get lost!

  39. SarahJ
    July 30, 2016 / 11:43 am

    I wait for sales and then get what I need. I wait until things I want go on sale.

    July 30, 2016 / 12:12 pm

    Check your local dollar store to see if they have what is on your list before you go to the big box stores

  41. kathy downey
    July 30, 2016 / 12:37 pm

    My tip is shop early,less stress!!

  42. Wayne Couzens
    July 30, 2016 / 12:54 pm

    I agree shop early some things run out quick and then you are left searching

  43. July 30, 2016 / 12:56 pm

    The best tip I have is actually buy extras when there is a sale and set aside for next year. For instance when paper is as low as .10 buy the limit a few different times and you put it away,
    Also us the dollar stores to get the supplies. Same supplies are cheap there compared to trying to buy at staples or other higher priced places

  44. Silvia D
    July 30, 2016 / 12:57 pm

    look for sales, lots of deals online, especially like it if free shipping!

  45. K Yee
    July 30, 2016 / 1:46 pm

    Start gradually adjusting bedtimes and get up times 1-2 weeks before back to school for a smoother transition.

  46. Isra
    July 30, 2016 / 1:54 pm

    As most people said, buy things from the dollar store and usually most things will have the same quality. Most kids lose their supplies by Christmas time so it’s not worth putting in any more money than necessary. Most importantly, Pack lunches the night before!

  47. Mary Warner
    July 30, 2016 / 2:41 pm

    Check local flyers for sale items on school supplies.

  48. Grace S.
    July 30, 2016 / 3:14 pm

    Take the kids for a special back to school shopping trip for some special school supplies. Maybe end with lunch so it is a fun outing and something to look forward to every year.

  49. Gord

  53. Wendy hutton
    July 30, 2016 / 4:26 pm

  54. Scott MacMillan

    I always aim for a couple of days before school starts. Then I know everything is in place, and I have time to pick up any extras that are needed without a big panic.

  58. angie
    July 30, 2016 / 6:23 pm

    Any way to save money nowadays is a must, and the fact the local dollar store has tons of school supplies from paper, pens to crayons and more really helps.

  59. Shelley Nelson
    July 30, 2016 / 7:44 pm

    I always pick up items that are on clearance in late sept/early oct (school supplies) and keep them for the following year -it saves a lot of money

  60. Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard
    July 30, 2016 / 7:58 pm

    buy items throughout the summer to spread the cost

  61. Jean
    July 30, 2016 / 8:42 pm

    Buy things on sale and only if you need it!

  62. Carla B
    July 30, 2016 / 8:59 pm

    Only buy a few pieces of back to school clothing before the school year actually starts. There is a good chance your kids will want different things once they see what everyone else is wearing!

  63. Sandi Tymchuk
    July 30, 2016 / 9:22 pm

    I suggest shopping early for supplies, to decrease stress later on.

  64. Kevin Low
    July 30, 2016 / 9:24 pm

  76. M james

  77. Sandy Couzens
    July 31, 2016 / 1:52 am

    My tip is always check the flyers and see if you can get price matches. Also see what can be still used from last year. Our little guy will be starting his first year soon. This would be wonderful !! Thank you 🙂

  81. July 31, 2016 / 10:02 am

    Set up snack bins so the kids can easily help pack their lunches.

  82. AD
    July 31, 2016 / 11:18 am

    There are very specific things my kiddos need every year for school (like a tablet); so I make lists six months in advance and start searching early for the more expensive items. I have also found that places like Kijiji are great for brand new items like electronics.

  83. Catherine Robichaud
    July 31, 2016 / 1:31 pm

  101. Nicole B
    August 2, 2016 / 10:45 am

    I watch all my emails as the school uniforms go on sale mid summer. It’s a lot cheaper to buy school things in July then August!

  102. Angela September
    August 2, 2016 / 2:40 pm

    I try not to buy everything at the last minute as that’s not a great time to score deals. Rather I watch for combining coupons and sales thru out the year!

  103. Clare O'Brien
    August 2, 2016 / 2:42 pm

    The best tip I have for back to school is to get a large calendar and ensure that all activities are written on it, and put it on a place that it will be scene, like on the fridge.

  106. Julie
    August 2, 2016 / 3:24 pm

    My fav tip is having a folder or bin for each child that contains there school stuff, like newsletters, homework, tip forms etc, where they are to leave and pick up their necessary items.

  107. Shane Smith
    August 2, 2016 / 4:53 pm

    Our trick is to print out a calendar so everyone know what is happening when. it helps the kids be responsible on their own.
    We also make lunches the night before and that seems to help the morning chaos

  108. Janice Wong
    August 2, 2016 / 6:38 pm

    Wait for back to school sales even if you don’t need to go back to school!

  109. August 2, 2016 / 7:25 pm

    Watch for sales, repurpose items and buy a little bit as you go.

  110. Justin
    August 2, 2016 / 8:48 pm

  111. Josh S

  116. August 3, 2016 / 6:32 pm

  120. Sunshine H
    August 4, 2016 / 6:30 pm

    I stock up when the prices are super low so that I have extra supplies as we need them through the year, and then can also reduce how many I need to buy the following years.

  121. missbobloblaw
    August 5, 2016 / 2:15 am

    I gradually ease back into the earlier bedtime routine by having everyone go to bed ten minutes earlier….and earlier each day until back on schedule!

    My tip is to buy extras when supplies are on sale. That way you don’t have to pay full price when you run out during the year, or you may even have extra supplies left over for the next school year.

    purchase school supplies throughout the year when there are good deals or sales on

    shop the sales early to be prepared and then a last family holiday before school starts.

    Don’t leave anything until the last moment,,,try to stick to a routine once school starts.

    i usually get supplies all throughout the year and not wait for all the crazy lineups. i’ll usually buy pens/pencils at the dollar store but i’ll buy a new backpack or clothes at walmart

    The week before school starts slowly in managable time increments move bedtimes back to your kids regular school bedtime so that it’s an easier adjustment.

    I make a list and stick to it. I also price match and sale shop wherever possible.

    I usually wait until after the first week of school to buy most supplies. That way you can see if the teachers request anything specific.

    I keep track of what size running shoes the kids are currently fitting as well as a record of all the shoe sizes I have tucked away in the closet. I buy shoes on sale but first check my list to see what sizes I already have and what I still need. That way, when they outgrow their indoor shoes in the middle of the school year, I have a pair ready to go.

    Prepare meals for the week on Sundays. That way you, hopefully, won’t be stressed out come meal time

    I would start moving bedtime back so that the kids would be able to get up without fuss for school.
