Y’all this kids playroom organization and makeover project was looooong overdue in the Cantu household. Imma be reaaaaaal honest with y’all and let you know that my breaking point was when I realized I was doing waaaaay more yelling at the kids to clean up their mess than I was actually making the mess WITH them! I was fed up with spending my time cleaning (or begging them to clean) instead of being there, present, in the moment playing with them. I’ve heard it, felt it, and know it, but sometimes I still need to remind myself….these little years are fleeting and I want nothing more than to enjoy these few years where they actually WANT me around! (I know those teenage years are just around the corner.) I don’t want to look back and regret the time spent worrying about the mess instead of enjoying it!
Okay I did it! I put together a Back to School Sales roundup for those of you who still have shopping to do before our favorite little people (or our once little but now big people) head back out to learn some things. I decided not to include actual school supplies (pencils, pens, markers, etc.) because I think most of that is pretty self explanatory. Instead, I tried to focus more on clothing, shoes, larger supplies (backpacks, lunchboxes, etc.), and dorm goodies.
Please note that a lot of these Back To School Sales have expiration dates so you better snag what you need before time runs out!
