It is hard to believe that our summers are coming to an end and that school is already starting back up for some, but it is true and as a parent I know that it is crunch time when it comes to preparing the kids for the school year ahead. Like many parents, I take those supply lists that the teachers have and even place at many of my local stores for me to reference as I do that back to school shopping. And like many parents, when it comes to finding the products that the kids will be needing and using this new school year, I like to seek out not just those deals but also the products that the kids find to be a must have. So like many, I find that by heading to my local Office Depot I can find those supplies the kids need, at the prices that fit my back to school budget, and in the styles that the kids want!
These must have supplies that fit both those class lists along with the styles the kids want include the pencils from Office Depot that come in the fun bright colors with comfort grips along with the large selection of mechanical pencils that the kids like as well. I can also get the notebooks both the regular and the composition notebooks and even the folders that are on the lists for just about every class my kids have, in the designs that suit their styles. Along with some of these basics we also found the selection of pencil bags, fun pencil sharpeners like the little hedgehog and rainbow cup for both at school and at home, fruit basket erasers and emoji Post-it notes to be must haves to help complete our back to school shopping lists when it comes to the supplies!
Then when it comes to even more reasons why adding Office Depot to your back to school shopping this year is a must, I like that they offer more than just deals for families and teachers but also help get supplies to kids in need as well. The Office Depot gives back to kids in need during the back to school season through their 17th annual Office Depot National Backpack Program. With this outreach, the Office Depot Foundation donates 100,000 sackpacks with school supplies which has helped get supplies and bags in the hands of more than 4 million kids worldwide since they first started! The bags are also bright and vibrant, giving the kids fun sacks that they will be happy to take with them as they take on the new school year ahead, and with the outreach, Office Depot will be donating sacks to kids across the US through the month of August during the Back-To-School celebrations! Making Office Depot not just my destination for when I need to stock up on ink and paper for my home office needs, but also the place to go to for the back to school shopping at family friendly prices, and where they do more than just offer the products I need but offer more to those in need as well!
