When it comes to back-to-school shopping, there are three categories of things you will buy besides school supplies.
- Stuff they need.
- Stuff they want.
Sometimes things fall into both categories, but often as parents we have to try and balance the two to make everyone happy. I find it helps to make a checklist to use as we shop. We don’t always get everything on the “want” list, but it helps prioritize and makes sure we don’t miss something they need.
Create eBay #BackToSchool Collections & Enter to win $500
Another way to keep track of wants vs needs for back-to-school is with eBay collections. Each collection you create is a custom list of items you select to make sure they have the back-to-school that makes them happy, and doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. My kids are entering sixth grade and first grade this year, and they are not at a loss for things they want. My son’s main want is a cell phone, but he has plenty of other things he hopes to get for back to school. My daughter wants a desk for her room, she really is looking forward to being a first grader. Of course, she still wants some fun girly clothes and jewelry. So I created an eBay collection for both of them filled with the things they want.
For every collection you create using #BackToSchool in the title, you will be entered to win a $500 to use on eBay.com. Creating a collection is easy, you simple shop on eBay for great back-to-school items and then save your favorites to a collection using #BackToSchool in the title. That’s it, you are then entered to win!
