About 5 year(s) ago by Hotel It’s almost that time of the year, your children start heading back to school while you and your pocket book start to cry. Are you ready for it? Most of the time shopping for school supplies can be overwhelming and confusing. Does my child need the wide markers or the thin ones? How many crayons does she need? All of this confusion can be eliminated, especially when you stick to exactly to the provided school supply list. Abiding by the school supply list will also be gentler on your budget. An important back to school tip is to try and avoid emotional shopping in which you are pressured by your child to buy based on their “wants” instead of their “needs.” A good way to do this is by going to educationalproducts.com. If your child’s school has partnered with this company, they will actually put together a school supply packet for your child according to the list the school has sent them. All you have to do is enter your school’s ID number and voila, you will be able to order your child’s custom school supply pack hassle free. Even if your school is not partnered with Educational Products Inc. you are still able to build your own school supply pack on their website. Educational Products Inc. was so kind as to give Ayres Hotels a sample pack. So we've decided to give it away to one of our valued guests and give away a night's stay at any Ayres Hotel location. While the children go back to school, you can go back to play!
