I was provided a gift card to shop for back to school supplies, all opinions are my own.
I am a weekly Target shopper, I find myself driving towards that red bullseye like a moth to a flame so of course I picked up a few more Back to School supplies for my kid’s during my latest shopping trip. My kids not only need traditional school supplies but they also need things like tissues, paper towels and disinfecting wipes, all of which I can find at Target.
This year Target has two awesome opportunities for stocking up on school supplies while giving back to those in need. The first involves Target Up&Up school supplies. For every select up&up school supply purchased at Target stores from July 13 through August 2, Target will donate one school supply item to a student in need, potentially impacting nearly two million kids this back-to-school season by donating up to $25 million in school supplies. All of the products will be donated to the Kids in Need Foundation, who will distribute the products to schools across the country before the new school year.
Another great opportunity involves the fun and colorful brand Yoobi. The Yoobi collection is available in Target stores and on Target.com and features a colorful range of products, including folders, notebooks, pens, and rulers, all for less than $10. Yoobi’s “One for You, One for Me” mission means that for every Yoobi product purchased at Target, Yoobi contributes a product to a Yoobi Classroom Pack that will be distributed to K-3 classrooms in the U.S. through the Kids In Need Foundation. I stocked up on some fun Yoobi products for at home as well as some up&up products for crafting and homework.
Target has a really great collection of matching themed backpacks, lunchboxes and water bottles and the water bottle is Camelbak my all time favorite water bottle YAY! Everyone in our house has a Camelbak water bottle purchased at Target over the years and we added a few new ones in fun prints including this adorable purple fox water bottle to match my daughters backpack and lunch box, perfect for pre-k!
As you can see Target has some really great stuff this year to help you get your kids and your home ready for back to school. Inspired by some of the organization and dorm room options we are turning my husband’s office into a study room for our girls complete with a new futon for reading and lounging. I am so excited to start this school year off on the right foot thanks to Target!
