It’s once again time to get ready for back-to-school. Do you have a child who is heading off to college? There are so many things you need to buy for them before they venture out on their own. They need bedding, towels, books, clothing and more.
I’m not quite sure how it happened, but I am now the mother of three college age boys. Time has flown by so quickly! I can still remember dropping each one of them off for their first day of kindergarten. When they all head back to school in the fall each one of them will be a junior. Jordan (22), my oldest worked and went to the local community college to get his AA degree. Both Austin (20) and Levi (18) did Running Start at our local community college during high school so they graduated with their AA degree and their diploma at the age of 18. Austin just returned from serving a church mission and is ready to get back to college. Levi will head to college after his church mission is completed in two years. Levi already knows that he wants to study optometry when he heads back to school. Which will come in handy, because if you didn’t notice all 3 of my boys wear glasses (technically my husband and child number 5 wear glasses too).
While you are at Target doing all the shopping for college necessities like bedding and other supplies, I recommend picking up a Brita Space Saver Pitcher. Through September 5th, you can save 10% with the Target Cartwheel App.
