One thing I’ve learned over the last five years is that when it comes to back to school preparations, the sooner, the better. Especially if you tend to procrastinate (guilty here!). Today I’m sharing a few things that I’m doing right now to beat the back to school rush! Keep reading for some ideas that you too can use as well.

Get Deal Alerts
Who doesn’t like a good deal? I know I do! A lot of my bulk shopping is done online, so I often sign up to the Newsletter list. That way, I get notifications when there’s a sale on things such as clothes, shoes, backpacks and of course, school supplies.
Get ready for back to school with Indigo and Mabel’s Labels.
Shop for school supplies
When I was a kid, shopping for back to school supplies was by far my favorite thing about starting school. It’s been a long time since I’ve been in school and the school supplies are getting even better and better. Indigo is the perfect spot to pick up some cute and fun items for back to school. I’m swooning over the Yoobi collection! Yoobi is exclusive to Indigo this fall, and for every Yoobi school supply purchased, Yoobi donates a school supply to a Canadian classroom in need through the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation.

Order your Mabel’s Labels
I’m a HUGE fan of Mabel’s Labels. I still remember the year that I didn’t order labels in time for the first day of school. I ended up having to write his name on all his school supplies. It took me forever! At one point I got so fed up that I just put his initials lol. Every year it seems that the school supplies list is getting longer and longer. Using the labels saves me so much time! You can and should order your labels ASAP to avoid the back to school rush.
