Granted, this time of year, Mississippi probably has very little in common with New York in the Fall, but the steamy days of August do get me in the mood to buy school supplies. I love them! Always have. When I see displays like these, I cannot help but want one of every kind of marker.
It’s true. But, I don’t need them all. Neither do my kids. There are, however, some things they can’t do without.
Socks might make a boring Christmas gift, but if your little boy is anything like mine, he needs as many white pairs as possible, which is why I love that Fruit of the Loom has bonus packs available at Wal-Mart. Thanks to their “Underwear for Overachievers” Campaign and the bonus packs they have at Wal-Mart, I was able to stock up on socks for my son and tank tops for my daughter…as well as other supplies to get the school year off to a great start!
She was thrilled when she saw the pink tank top in the package. And, the backpack. Pink and sparkly? She was sold.
By the way, I’m just wondering if anyone else feels like they are shopping in 1987 or something? We got a bright pink backpack and neon pencils. Neon everything, actually.
I would have used this in the 80s. It would have matched my hi-tops.
Besides the pink tank, we love these because they are perfect for layering, and (like the 80s) layers are in. At least among the eight-year-old girls I know. These will be perfect with so many of her outfits this fall.
We enjoyed shopping for all the basics and a few fun things for Fall. Fruit of the Loom‘s Underwear for Over-Achievers Campaign made it possible, and they’d like to do the same for you.

It might not be a “bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils,” but it’s definitely the next best thing, right?
