5 Back To School Essentials for Moms! #B2SFresh

Thanks to Mirum Shopper for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.


Meijer has everything you need to get you ready for back to school season– from school supplies, clothes, beauty and skincare items, to gear, you can find what you’re looking for at Meijer.

Moms, don’t forget about yourself when going back to school shopping. Often times when back to school shopping moms often forget about themselves. It’s so important to think of yourself when back to school shopping so your kids can have the best version of you.

So, what does that mean?


When you’re grabbing those notebooks off the shelf, don’t forget to buy yourself a cute daily planner so you can plan ahead for the school year. Planners are my favorite and as of late, I have been keeping a “Bullet Journal” where I can plan for the days ahead, keep all of my dates and appointments in order, and be as creative with my note taking and reminders as I want to be! Meijer has some really nice planners on sale you might want to stock up on!


When you’re buying backpacks for your little ones, don’t forget to get yourself a new purse to help you organize your on-the-go essentials in style. Meijer has a variety of purses and bags to help you rock your style while running your back to school errands. I’m in need of a new school bag myself, and I love how Meijer can be my one-stop shop for all of my back to school needs.



When you’re getting essentials for your kids like their favorite shampoo and conditioner, don’t forget to get yourself something that will make your hair feel alive again, too. One of my favorite haircare ingredients is coconut oil– I swear by it, so I was really excited to see the new line of Suave haircare products that are infused with coconut oil at Meijer!

There are also some new Suave Kids Purely Fun products that are perfect for those nightly pre-bedtime showers and baths. Plus, these new products will leave you and your kid’s hair looking a feeling healthier in just a few washes. Score!


When you’re running around all day whether you’re chasing your little ones, doing errands, working outside of the home– we can all agree that being on your feet all day can be painful. Invest in some new sneakers this back to school season! Your feet will thank you for the extra cushion and support to help you go that extra mile.


And lastly, when you’re out finding the latest back to school outfits for your little ones don’t forget to splurge on a couple of new outfits for yourself. Not only will this help you feel more confident, but it will also help you look and feel your best. Some of my favorite back to school outfit ideas include long tops, jeans, and a few accessories to pull it altogether.

Your local Meijer has everything you need to make back to school shopping easy and stress-free. From school supplies and gear to outfits and haircare, you can find everything need all in one place– that’s how back to school shopping should be!

    I have never never been to a Meijer either. I had no idea they had clothing as well as other essentials. I always thought it was another grocery store. I just love the notebooks. So cute.

    When I was visiting family in Michigan. I had went to Meijer’s many times. I love Meijer’s and have everything needed. Their prices are low. I just wish they bring one here in New York. I’ll be in there everyday!

      I agree, the prices are low! We have since switched to Meijer’s for our grocery needs within the past year and have saved so much.

    Looks like a great store! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of it here in Toronto but wish we did. Looks like you can find just about everything under one roof! Would be SO helpful!

    I love absolutely everything about back to school ( I used to be a teacher so I love everything school related) and I would agree with all of your essentials. Will have to look into some of your recommendations so my family and I can start the school year off right!

      My sister is a teacher and back to school is her favorite, too. She is so excited for it!

    I need to pick up a new purse. It has been a few years since I have bought one.

    I love the suave kids line. It smells great.

    I buy Sauve for my kids, I love the scent choices they have. Their hair smells so good when they get out of the bath. I could have a nice shopping time getting all my mommy essentials at that store.
