Our Back to School Kohl’s Shopping Trip


I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Kohls Back to School 03

With some money in hand and a mission in mind, my daughter and I went shopping at Kohl’s towards the beginning of August for Back to School. She had an idea of what she wanted to buy for her Sophomore year. Foundation pieces that she could build a wardrobe around. When you have basic pieces such as a jean jacket, you can put together so many different outfits that will last you all year long. Sure, she’ll go shopping again (it’s kind of something we enjoy doing together 🙂 ), but she has a nice wardrobe to start out the school year and we didn’t have to spend a lot of money.

Kohl’s is by far one of our favorite places  to shop. Not just for back to school time, but just shop in general. Why? Savings. Between coupons, sales and Kohl’s cash (it’s like gold to me people) – I sometimes feel like framing my receipts. For this shopping trip in particular, we were able to combine some Kohl’s cash with the sales and get quite the bang for our buck.

The other reason we love to shop there – Style. They have something that all of my kids love. (And myself!) When you have three kids who each have three unique tastes, finding one store they all like to shop at can be quite hard!
