As you know, back to school season can be stressful for parents. In fact, I usually throw myself into positivity and organization in order to feel more in control of all the feels I feel about back to school. This year is no exception – this year needs more positivity and organization than ever before! While we don’t yet know what the back to school season will look like, even if our townships or families have already made decisions, we do know that this season is coming fast. And Dollar General is committed to providing everything your family needs to take on the school year in 2020. They have all the supplies, snacks, packs, and safety materials you need.
Everything You Need For Back to School in 2020:
Whether you have a child starting kindergarten, or their senior year of high school, this is one-stop shopping to make that list and check it twice. If you’re a student, a parent, or a teacher, DG is there for you. Here’s our insider look at everything you need for back to school in 2020!
This was the most important aisle of our trip, and Dollar General didn’t disappoint. Our location, like yours, should be stocked full of colorful goodness. Both kids had been wanting shark backpacks and were able to find two different shark backpacks, so as to avoid confusion!
What else? We picked out mechanical pencils, wooden pencils, calculators, tape, notebooks, folders, paper, scissors, glue, binders, lunchboxes, trinkets, a dry erase board, and lots of Dollar General’s own Office Hub product line. I couldn’t believe how much we got in one trip. We also got activity books and coloring items, because the kids are huge fans of such fun and busy work.
I was so happy to see that Dollar General has a lot of safety items for the new school year. When you’re there for your back to school shopping trip, also find designer masks, regular masks, hand sanitizer, hand wipes, gloves, and tissues. While tissues and hand sanitizer are always a staple for my kids, this years looks a little different. And we have adapted like Dollar General!
Lunch and Snack Items:
Dollar General also has all of the food items we need for breakfast and lunch in the new school year. We got lunchboxes, and also bread, peanut butter, jelly, water bottles, sandwich and snack bags, Lunchables, napkins, cookies, crackers, cereals, chips, and more. We love the exclusive Dollar General food items from Clover Valley and Good & Smart. And you can get lunch meat!
