When I was a kid, back to school shopping was one of my favorite things about starting a new school year. As soon as our school shopping lists would arrive, my parents would load all five of us up and we would fill our carts up with everything we needed for a successful year.
I can’t believe the time has come to take my own kids back to school shopping (Charlie will be in preschool!) – talk about bittersweet!
Thankfully, we have Fred Meyer for all of our back to school shopping!
Not only that, but did you know that if you have a Rewards Card you are supporting your local schools by shopping there!?
The “Support Your Schools” program is a legacy program for Fred Meyer. When you use your Rewards Card, your school district earns $1 from Fred Meyer and $1 from each participating brand when you buy Back to School clothes and shoes. You can support your favorite nonprofit just my shopping at Fred Meyer with your Rewards Card.
They are donating $2.6 million each year – up to $650,000 each quarter – to the local schools, community organizations and nonprofits chosen by their customers.
I am a first generation immigrant and my mother worked for a local nonprofit who helped immigrants and refugees start a better life here in the United States. I saw first hand how these donations helped so many people and families, as well as children in schools.
All the more reason to shop at Fred Meyer and support your community!
Here are some photos of our first Back to School shopping experience:
Here is a look Charlie and I picked out for his first day of school.
Fred Meyer has great brands like Unionbay! They have lots of cotton neutral tees like the one Charlie is wearing here. I’m all about quality and comfort, as well as style!
I’ve always loved shopping for clothes for my kids at Fred Meyer. Their sale section has so many good deals! They also have a really good selection of shoes!
PS: he looks like such a big boy 🙁 I’m excited for him to start school and learn and grow, but I’m also not ready to let him go!
One other awesome product we learned about while shopping at Fred Meyer is the Samsung Galaxy Kids Tablet! Samsung created this tablet as a way for kids to use “screen time” to not only entertain themselves, but learn. You can download content for any age and it will challenge them with educational games and entertainment for their level in school. Check it out if you haven’t heard of it before!
Thank you Fred Meyer for sponsoring this post and for giving back to the community!
I am hosting a Gift Card giveaway on my Instagram through 08/31! You can enter here!
