Back To School Shopping With Staples (and Brian Urlacher!)

Summer is coming to an end and that means it is time to go back to school! I’ve always loved this time of year, the Fall season begins, my birthday is in September, and a new school year for this social butterfly meant meeting new friends and having a lot of fun. Also one of the only occasions where my frugal parents would let me splurge and buy anything I wanted was going back to school shopping. Did I need the pink sparkly mechanical pencils to do my best handwriting? Of course I did. They believed, as do I, that education is priceless.

Which is why I am so excited to announce my partnership with Staples. Staples has everything you could possibly need for back to school shopping in one place, as well as in-store experts to help you shop stress-free. Now, I get to relive my childhood love of back to school shopping through Adam. I absolutely love a fresh pack of sharpened pencils, the smell of a new box of crayons, and new untouched notebooks full of possibilities. I want Adam to feel the same excitement I had when I was a kid, shopping for everything he needs to be prepared for a new school year. He loves having the responsibility of choosing his favorite lunch box, pencils, and everything else on his supply list.

It is so meaningful to work with Staples because they have a long history of giving back to teachers and families in need, so I feel good that my purchase is helping others who aren’t able to afford the supplies they need to get the best education possible.

For the fifth year in a row, Staples is partnering with DonorsChoose.org, the leading platform for giving to public schools, started by a teacher from the Bronx back in 2000. Teachers across America use the site to create projects requesting resources their students need, and donors give to the projects that inspire them. Anyone can donate in-store and online to schools in your community – it’s so easy!

On Wednesday, August 15th, let’s go back-to-school shopping together at Staples located at 111 N Wabash Ave! I will certainly be there and Hall of Famer, Brian Urlacher will be there as well! It’ll be a special event where local schoolteachers from DonorsChoose.org will receive flash-funding for their classroom projects, as well as a meet and greet with Brian Urlacher! See you there – don’t forget your little one’s back to school shopping list.
