College-Bound/Back-To-School-Make those purchases!

August 14, 2011

Well, it is  time to finalize purchases for your college-bound son or daughter…backpacks, staplers, shredders, etc. If your son or daughter attended college last year, you probably have all of the furnishings for their rooms or apartments, securely tucked away awaiting departure day.  For the Freshman…right now you may be looking at all kinds of things…bedspreads, sheets, comforters, pillows, towels, wastebaskets, personal refrigerators, microwaves, coffeemakers, snacks,  clothing, lamps, computers, printers, iphones, ipads and of course, school supplies.  Most teenage females already purchase (or at least, select) their own cosmetics and some of their toiletries…hair products, razors, shaving cream, etc.  Males …on the other hand…may or may not have taken an interest in selecting toiletries, my guess is that most are not involved in that aspect of their lives. There’s a great service you can subscribe to so that your son won’t have to shop for his toiletries.  Take a look at Automated Mom, mom,  and see how you can effectively ensure that your son will have everything he needs to take care of himself, hygiene-wise, if you know what I mean.  I am sure you don’t want him to go without the necessities and  s-m-e-l-l…. Automated Mom has name brand products and also the products young men prefer. Remember you can customize your order and select what you want for his kit.. Feel free to call the company with questions at 1-888-315-DUDE or 3833.

For your young children, , backpacks, notebooks, binders, loose leaf paper, pens, markers, staplers, rulers, protractors, water bottles and  on and on…also lunch boxes for the little ones.  Stores have all kinds of blow out sales this time of year to help you get a good deal with these items. It really helps to do your homework before going to the stores and check out your local store flyers. And of course, you can always make your purchases online.

Google your favorites stores and find the best buys available.

Happy shopping and for those who have freshmen leaving for college…everything will be fine…

This is MeddlingMom…
