August is almost here, which means parents, students and teachers are getting ready to start the new school year.
When looking to put together pieces for the upcoming year, it can be hard to know where to shop and what to buy. However, with a little help from TJ Maxx, Marshalls and style expert Kathy Buccio, it can be stress-free!
As a working mom, Buccio understands the hassle of getting the whole family ready for the transition back into the classroom. And with two kids at home, she also knows how much the academic environment has changed due to the pandemic and technology. "I like to start my back-to-school shopping early to make sure I’m checking everything off my list," she shared in a statement. "When shopping this season, I suggest checking out the best deals both in-store and online to minimize my shopping trips, and Marshalls and T.J.Maxx are the places to go for everyone in the family!"
It's important to start the full term feeling prepared, and for little ones, incorporating aspects of their personal style is a must. Both retailers offer age-appropriate clothes that include dinosaurs, crowns, animals, glitter and more.
For those making the move to college and a dorm, there are options for them too. They can find affordable high-quality tote and book bags for going to class, and dorm decor to help the space feel a little more like home while they're away.
