One of the things we love about back-to-school time is the chance to shop for school supplies, but it can also be a little stressful—for both parents and teachers. Lost lists, hard-to-find items, and questions (“Are generic glue sticks OK?”) upon questions (“Should the folders have pockets or holes or both?”) upon questions (“Where the heck can I find orange Post-it Notes?”). All of this can lead to headaches for everyone involved. This year Walmart is making it easier for everyone’s back-to-school shopping. Here’s why you’ll love uploading your list this year:
1. It’s fast and free.
You probably already have a school supply list put together. All you have to do is upload it here, and in 48 hours it will be available for your students and parents to view on Walmart! Oh, and did we mention it’s completely free?
2. It makes your life easier.
3. It saves parents time and money.
When parents use the Walmart School Supply List tool, that’s the end of the yearly back-to-school scavenger hunt. It’s as easy as one, two, three. The items can be picked up in store or delivered right to their home. No muss, no fuss!
4. It saves paper.
Think about how much paper will be saved when you don’t have to print out numerous copies of the list. The real truth is that this tool makes it possible for parents to plan ahead and get their student ready for school.
5. It helps prepare kids to succeed.
That’s what it all comes down to, really: giving kids what they need for a successful school year. No child wants to be the one without their own headphones or worried because their scissors aren’t the right kind. When you make a school supply list easier to find by making it available at Walmart, you help parents prepare their kids to focus on learning. And in the end, that’s what matters.
