Covering All Our Back-to-School Needs with Walmart and an Awesome Giveaway! #FruitoftheLoom #BacktoSchool

This post is brought to you by Fruit of the Loom.

Last weekend we checked back-to-school shopping off of our end of summer list.  In the past it has been one of the things that we most dread doing but this year it was made easy thanks to Walmart and Fruit of the Loom.  You see, it was tax free weekend where we live.  And while I generally DREAD this weekend because of long lines and under stocked stores, this year I decided to brave the craziness and head out to my local Walmart for some back-to-school shopping – and I’m so glad I did!

On our list, we had a wide array of essentials – from notebooks and pencils to new underwear.  And while my telling you this may embarrass J-Man, the underwear were so needed!  You see, J-Man is going into 5th grade and he plays on many sports teams.  So he’ll be changing clothes at school a lot this year.  And his old undies?  Well, they’ve gotten a little small!  So it was time to get a fresh start for back-to-school!  And I loved that I could find everything I needed – from those all important under garmets to the pencils and paper – in one central location!

As soon as we arrived at Walmart, we started going down our list.  I was surprised at how easy it was to find everything we needed and how quickly our list was checked off!


And the prices?  Well, they were amazing!  Once we had gotten all the supplies on our school supplied list, it was time to get down to the basics – literally!  So we headed back to the clothing section where we could find t-shirts, underwear and socks.  Now, while these are often left off the back-to-school lists, they are an essential item to make sure your kiddo is back to school ready!  Just as you have to have new supplies, new shoes and a new haircut for back to school, I also feel it’s important to freshen up the items that go under your clothes!  And this year Fruit of the Loom made it easy, affordable and even colorful!


With their totally awesome bonus packs, getting tons of underwear to last all year long is totally possible!  We found the bonus packs for boys in briefs, boxers and boxer briefs.  And with different colors and patterns, there were plenty of options to match any kiddos personality!  After all, underwear are the first things your kids put on and even though I hope they stay covered, allowing my J-Man to express his personality all the way down to his undies is a fun way for me to continue to let him express himself every day!


Plus (listen up moms) with the bonus packs you get extra pairs of underwear free – ensuring that laundry doesn’t have to happen quite as often – SCORE!  In fact, in our package we received three free pairs giving us more than enough to have a clean pair for every day of the week!  Plus with their super comfortable design and array of colors, your kiddo can be fashionable with every item they put on!  Now, I couldn’t get J-Man to model them for you (and honestly, I think that’s good) but MillerBug was all about showing you how awesome they look and feel!


In fact, he can’t wait till his back to school list includes Fruit of the Loom too!  Because with their super soft fabric, great fit and money saving bonus packs, they are an essential item for any back-to-school list!

So, as I’m going through our back to school list, I’ve got everything checked off.  Notebooks, crayons, pencils and new underwear -thanks to Fruit of the Loom!  I encourage you to head to Walmart today and make sure you’ve got this back to school essential that’s sure to make moms and kiddos happy about the back to school time outfits – and what goes underneath!

And now, to make it easier for you to stock up on back-to-school supplies – including Fruit of the Loom Underwear bonus packs, we’re giving away a $75 Walmart Gift Card!  You can use it for any of you need but don’t forget to save big and purchase underwear for your overachiever while you’re there!
