Back to school shopping was always one of my favorite parts about going back to school in the fall! Especially during elementary school. My parents tradition was to buy us one back to school outfit, and my mom always searched for where there were good deals on quality clothing. She wanted pieces that would last, but wouldn’t be to hard on the wallet, and Sears was one of the places where she could find different styles of clothes for her four children. Check out Sears Canada and Rock the Halls for Back to School.
As we got older, our back to school shopping changed. When we were young, my mother would choose what she was buying us. And as we grew older, she would let us choose our own clothes, but she would make sure that we had the staples for our wardrobe; new shoes, a pair of jeans and a good sweater.
After buying our new outfit for back to school, my mother would ask us to look through our gently worn clothes and pick items that we no longer used, so we could donate it. And it’s a habit that has stuck with me since childhood, to this day if I get something new, I make sure to pick a couple things out of my closet to donate.
Did you know that Sears Canada has been a proud supporter for over 40 years of Boys and Girls Club across Canada (BGCC), Canada’s leading provider of quality after school programs that support the healthy physical, educational, social and mental development of Canadian children and youth. Sears shares Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada’s philosophy that providing all Canadian children and youth with access to opportunity is essential to helping them achieve their full potential and create a better future. And to help out with this year’s back-to-school season, Sears Canada and Converse will be providing the BGCC with $10,000 worth of Back to School Apparel!
Our little moon is still a couple years away from going to school, but it’s something I have been looking forward too even before I had kids. Right now I have fun choosing her clothes and dressing her, and will probably continue to do so until she can start choosing her own clothes. It’s important for her to be able to choose her clothes because I think it plays an important part in expressing her personality, style and individuality. I wonder if she will be like our family friend, who is six and loves wearing dresses, big floral headbands and sparkly shoes everyday to school? Or will she be like me? A tomboy who loved wearing sports realted attire, like tearaways, nikes and sweats?
