You know what back to school means? It means fall colors, tall boots, chunky sweaters, steaming lattes, and a whole lot more “me” time – even if I do plan to spend it working.

This is the first year I will have both kids in school {even if it’s just a few hours a week}, and quite honestly I’m a bit teary eyed about it. But, I know it’s so good for both kids to be with kids their own age and learn with their peers that it’s hard to be too sad about it. For that reason, I’m saying TGIBTS {Thank Goodness It’s Back to School}. One of the things I’m most excited about is the fact that I get to go school shopping. I’m using back to school shopping as a great motivator for purging the old so I can make room for all their new must-haves, and I’m loving it. Anything with holes or worn spots is gone, anything that is outgrown or doesn’t fit quite right is donated, and anything that just isn’t getting the love that it should is passed down to someone who can truly appreciate it. In doing that, I have started from the top drawer and am working my way down. That means all those well worn, mismatched, and outgrown socks and undergarments are being purged first and I’m finding that we desperately need to restock before the new school year. Thank goodness Fruit of the Loom has us covered!

By offering seasonal bonus packs that include FREE underwear, t-shirts, socks, and undershirts in each pack, it maximizes your back to school dollars while making it easy to prepare for the school year ahead. The bonus packs come with three extra items in each package and are available in boys, girls and even in men’s and women’s {for those teens who have outgrown the children sizes}. In Walmart stores nationwide, you will see displays like the one below advertising the 3 free garments in each pack as well as on the individual packs. Of course, you can also order online if you’re pressed for time.

Recently, we headed out to Walmart to start our school shopping and were pleased to find that in addition to supplies from the official school lists, they also had basics and fun pieces that would be perfect to start the school year off with. Since my kids have both gone through huge growth spurts and are growing out of their old socks and undershirts, this was a perfect time to load up while they could help me choose the styles they loved the most.

Seriously, have you ever seen a happier shopper? For socks of all things!

If you’re out shopping for back to school, I’m sure you will notice many of the Fruit of the Loom bonus pack displays to aid you in shopping. It’s the perfect time to stock up and save big on basics your kids already need and be able to send them back to school in comfort while still saving a ton.

Be sure to visit Fruit of the Loom to find out more about their full lines of products for men, women and children. You can connect with them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to find out about any promotions or deals for back to school shopping.
