  • So I only have a couple of suggestions since mine is only in preschool (and all she needs is snacks and shoes).
    Dollarama. Really. Your son/daughter wants that Lightning McQueen/Princess of the Day lunchbox? $3 maximum. Also, paper, pens, crayons, lunch containers, etc. Avoid the candy/chip aisle especially if you have a wee one along. Let’s put it this way: I have looseleaf left from my university days 10 years ago. I won’t have to buy paper until she’s in grade 7 at least.

    And from my own mother’s lips: go through the stuff from last year, see how much you have. Buy what you need to get through the first 2-4 weeks. In that 2-4 week time period, all the back to school stuff goes on sale to make room for Halloween (unless you’re Costco and then you have Christmas decorations in AUGUST. So wrong).
