KMart Back to School

KMart Back To School

I’ll admit I’m generally a Target girl. I really haven’t visited KMart much at all, but I recently attended a KMart Back To School event (#KMartBTS) and I was really impressed by the things available at KMart. Apparently I’ve been missing out on a lot! A couple of my favorite items:

  • A Perry the Platypus backpack. My kids LOVE Phineas & Ferb and they’d love this backpack. Unfortunately, Cooper is in preschool, but the school provides his tote bag and supplies. Even though he doesn’t need one for school, this might make a nice birthday gift for Cooper to carry toys or goodies on outings or to Grandma’s house.

  •  This boys 3-way shirt. It’s only $9.99 but it’s a t-shirt and a long sleeved shirt that can be worn together or separately. Two shirts for less than $10? That’s an awesome price and it wasn’t even a sale price!

  •  Back to Campus collection. Just looking at this table and all the cute dorm room/apartment decorations made me consider running away from home and going back to college.

I received some KMart back to school items at the event and it’s a great example of all the different types of things KMart has available at great prices. The backpack is my favorite – it’s my new diaper bag! It’s got pockets for everything so I can find whatever I’m looking for.

Of course, I had to take a trip to KMart to see what I could find. We bought some household items, and checked out the huge selection of back to school items, but the highlight of the trip was this find – Perry the Platypus gym shoes for Cooper!

The price was great – $19.99 – but it was even better when I found out they were on clearance for only $7.00! Cooper was really excited about wearing them for his first day of school (and he corrected me – it’s no Perry the Platypus because he’s wearing a hat and that makes him Agent P. Silly me!).
