The Easiest Way to Do Back to School Shopping

9 Flares 9 Flares ×

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Zappos.com I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Zappos.comI don’t know about you, but I do see the benefits of having the kids in school! While afternoons are crazy once the kids get home, I am beginning to catch up on some business and personal items that have been sitting on the back burner all summer long.

Back to School ClothesOne thing I’ve gotten done is finishing the school year shopping! I rationalized NOT getting it done prior to the outset of school as “well, summer weather is still here, we can wait a bit for these things and make sure we need ALL of what’s on these lists!” Sound familiar? Well, we need them and it’s already surprisingly cool in the Mid-Atlantic so I got it done.

I did make it easy on myself, and fun, however. I did it all online at Zappos.com! In fact, because of all the cool stuff and brand names on there, I think I’ve got a few things for Christmas lined up as well. But can’t say anything here in case the kids check out what Mom has been up to online.

But who can’t find some things they want on Zappos.com? I mean, here’s some of our family’s favorite brands and their lines are available quickly and easily:

Footwear Brands:

  • Nike
  • Stride Rite
  • New Balance
  • Converse
  • Keen
  • Pediped

Clothing Brands:

  • Under Armour
  • Nike
  • The Northface
  • Patagonia
  • Roxy
  • Volcom
  • Splendid
  • Tommy Hilfiger

Vineyard Vines Zappos.comMy son is the one that scored the most from Zappos.com this season. I don’t know about your family, but here – It’s the boys that are harder to shop with and for than the girls. They can be done in 20 minutes and the boys are still debating blue versus white or something equally inane! But by having him sit with the laptop and find the clothing and socks that he needed I got to do other things and only show up to review and pay.

I love the Vineyard Vines shirt he got! It’s basic white but has a nice pattern on it so it can be dressed up or down. Since he needs shirt and tie for school, this one works with everything! Check out Zappos.com Vineyard Vines collection

Nike Socks Zappos.comNike is the go to company for kids and adults! These socks I was told “everyone” is wearing. Nice – Ok, I know they will last if they are Nike so we added them in! Double order in fact just in case those sock gremlins walk off with one of them when it comes time to wash.  Your kids will thank you, get some of these socks today!

The Nike Dri-Fit products are great! Humid Mid-Atlantic summer days and the sweat evaporates quickly and the clothing stands up.   The colors and fit of this shirt is really great. Doesn’t it look great with Jack’s hair color? (He’d be cringing if he ever read this part of this post…..) Check it Out HERENike Dri Fit Zappos.com

Best of all? Rather than spending 3-4 hours and maybe we’d be to this point in shopping at the mall on back to school shopping, I only spent 7 minutes reviewing and modifying one item. All those hours added back in my day!

Ok, go to Zappos.com today and see all the great stuff, awesome pricing and supper FAST shipping for you and your kids!  For some of the items we got, here are the links:
