Getting ready for back to school shopping is not an easy task. It is a busy time of the year, that parents and children both know is a time for everyone to get ready. With kids starting new schools, the supplies needed, then all the lunches that will be eaten, there is a lot going on every day for the next 9 months.
With elementary and middle school children we have a lot that we have to get ready for. There are back to school shopping for clothes, supplies, snacks, and anything else they think they may need. With 2 smart and energetic little girls, they have a lot of requests.
I have to say some of their essential requests are to pick out their own:
- Lunch Bag
- Pencil Box
Using my smartphone has really made many things easy for me. I find myself using my PayPal App for many reasons. From my coffee, to memberships, and of course back-to-school shopping, my PayPal App makes it easy to shop from my iPhone or my home computer. Now I get get all of my 6th grader’s needs school supplies from the comfort of my seat.
Using PayPal for back-to-school shopping I get PayPal’s exclusive offers with select retailers, brands, store both local and online. Not only is Back to School shopping easier, it is more affordable with special savings and deals. Check out paypal.com/backtoschool to see the best ways to save money!
This time of the year, or season as I look at it, is just as hectic for people without. The last minute shopping at busy stores, waiting in traffic, it gets old and just adds to the stress of everything else going on at home. It’s easy to find everything I need for back to school with PayPal shopping.
With PayPal Credit for any purchases big and small, with back to school and college needs, it is easy to break up payments over time using Easy Payments. Even better is: No Payments + No Interest if paid in full in 6 months on purchases of $99 or more.
DONATE WITH PAYPAL
Having 3 children in all different grades, it is important that I contribute and donate where I can. From the local PTA to class supplies or fundraisers, the more we all work together the more we can achieve. PayPal has partnered with select charities that provide educational and after school enrichment to children. Some include:
With the flooding happening back east, it is easy to donate with Paypal Donate. Easy to use from the PayPal App or on Paypal.com/givenow it’s easy to support groups like the American Red Cross or Louisiana Association of United Ways and more.
