Well the start of this week marked the beginning of another school year for most. With the start of the new school year comes all those miscellaneous item we find we need. We are on week three of the new school year and my kids are still coming home with lists from different teachers and resource classes with additional must haves. I can't even imagine what it's going to be like when my kids reach college, not only needing supplies for classes but dorm accessories as well.
I spent a lot of time this year going over must haves for younger kids but I know a lot of you have older children just starting out in college, soon to be college students and even returning college students. Not only do I know this but BJ's Wholesale Club knows this as well. From traditional dorm décor and furnishings for an apartment or dorm room to all of the necessities that every student needs when going back to college, parents and students alike are faced with a challenge every back to school season, and that is stretching the dollar in these hard economic times.
This year BJ's has made it their goal to be your one stop shop for great value while featuring everything you need to furnish any space, big or small, and stock up on college essentials from late night power snacks to top-brand health and beauty items at great savings.

I have to say we have been a member of BJ's for quite sometime unfortunately when we moved to Florida or local BJ's got a little further away so I don't get there as much as I once did. I was shocked at their back-to-school selection for not only College students but Elementary-Highschool students as well. We snatched up some great values on books and even found a few polo shirts for that back-to-school look. BJ's Wholesale Club is one of those places the whole family likes to go because there is something for all of us and so much more. I can grab some groceries and snack for the kids for school, while my husband browses electronics and the kids stare up in amazement at the giant trampolines hanging from the ceiling. Young, old, male female BJ's has it all!
