Back to School Looks for Less with The Children’s Place! #BTSwithTCP

Is it me or does it seem like summer vacation goes faster and faster each year? I can hardly believe that the summer will soon be over and we will be in school mode once again. The end of summer vacation means that back to school shopping will soon be in full swing! We will be looking for the best deals to get our kids ready for the new year. When it comes to finding the best deals for back to school looks, I always turn to The Children’s Place. Whether your child wears a school uniform or they need a new school wardrobe, The Children’s Place has you covered. Not only do they have the best prices around, but I love that they offer Free Shipping on every purchase! You can also buy online and pick your order up in in the store. Both are great options, especially since many of us are so busy these days.

Through July 31, The Children’s Place is offering huge savings on clothing to help get the kids back to school ready! Graphic tees are priced starting at just $3.99 and basic jeans start at $7.99. If your kiddos wear a school uniform, I love that The Children’s Place offers multipacks that include multiples of each item so that you can get the most bang for your buck. For example, you can get a double pack of polo shirts for $10 or a two pack of shorts of pants for $20. I also noticed that you can get multipacks of three and five clothing items. This makes it super easy and affordable while planning that back to school wardrobe!

Here are several budget-friendly looks that I put together!

Girls Super Skinny Jeans, $11.99

Girls Two Pack Graphic Tees, $8.99

 

Boys Two Pack Basketball Shorts, $14.99

Boys Two Pack Muscle Tanks, $12.99

 

Girls Uniform Ruffle Pique Polo, $5.99

Girls Uniform Active French Terry Skort, Two pack, $14.99

Boys Uniform Pique Polo Two Pack, $9.99

Boys Uniform Stretch Chino Shorts Two Pack, $20

Girls Print Skater Dress Two Pack, $19.98

Boys Stretch Super Skinny Jeans, $14

Boys Colorblock Hoodie Top, $11.97

 

If a new backpack is on the agenda for this coming school year, The Children’s Place is offering up to 40% off through July 21! They have backpacks for everyone on your list! I love that many of the backpack options come in sets so you get the backpack and lunch box all in one! This saves time and money on your back to school shopping! My youngest son Brady is into Minecraft, so this 2 two piece Minecraft set is what he chose. At $23.99 that is a great deal for both pieces!

Grab What’s Good on National Ice Cream Day with Mayfield Ice Cream!

I can’t believe how quickly that the summer is flying by! We have already enjoyed several trips together as a family and have a few more fun things planned before the boys’ head back to school next month.

While I do love traveling and getting away together as a family, I must say that I love relaxing and enjoying family time right at home. Whether that be taking a family walk, playing board games together, or enjoying a movie night, making memories is so special!

When we are at home and enjoying family time, I love to keep delicious treats on hand. One of our all-time favorite treats is ice cream. I have countless memories of our family enjoying ice cream while laughing and talking about the day’s activities. I look forward to continuing that tradition for years to come! There’s something about slowing down from the hustle and bustle of the day with a big bowl of ice cream that brings so much joy! I know that our boys will look back and treasure the silly moments that we had together as a family.

Mayfield Ice Cream knows a thing or two about ice cream and family traditions. They have been serving up delicious ice cream since 1923! I personally love that Mayfield Ice Cream is 100% owned by a dairy farm cooperative, which includes family farms right in your community. Mayfield Ice Cream is not only delicious, but also comes in many unique flavors. Our favorite varieties include Moose Tracks and Cookies and Cream. We also love the Sundae Delights. They are the perfect amount of ice cream and toppings in a convenient cup. Yum! Whatever your craving, Mayfield Ice Cream has a flavor of ice cream for you!

Get those spoons ready! Did you know that this Sunday, July 18 is National Ice Cream Day? You will certainly want to “Grab What’s Good” and pick up some Mayfield Ice Cream at your local grocery store to celebrate this fun day with your family and friends!

How do you enjoy National Ice Cream Day? Whatever you do to celebrate, remember to slow down, and make special memories with those that you love!
