Brighten Up Those Back to School Blues

July 1, 2013

For some it may still feel like the dog days of summer, but some kids will soon be learning new tricks when students across the country begin the bustle back to school.

Going back to school, however, can mean different things to different age groups. For many kids, it means an end to the glory days no more sleeping in, and pulling the plug on hours of endless play and hanging out with friends. The only bright side? New stuff!

But for Moms and Dads, new stuff means a big hit in the wallet, and for families with multiple children, the cost of going back to school can really break a budget. In today's economy, back to school can be a great time for grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and extended family members to shower a little love - and surprise some kids(and their parents) with some new items that can get the kiddos through the next school year while giving Mom and Dad some breathing room at the same time.

If you're a parent, consider having your kids create a wish list on's registry service. You can go over what kinds of items they'll be needing for the school year; and set parameters about the types of gifts they include on their list, as well as what prices are appropriate. The products the children select can either be e-mailed to friends and family, or they can be viewed online at any time.

And, if you're a friend or family member, consider gifting someone you know with a little something to start their new year off right. It'll be a gesture that's guaranteed to earn YOU an A+.
