It’s Time for Back to School with Staples
Staples is the place for all their school supplies and much more
When it comes time to get back to school shopping done for our teen daughter, Staples is where we go to get all of her school supplies. Sometimes we forget though that Staples is just more than school and office supplies. They have a great computer and tablet section, backpacks and they’re a great store to scope out gifts too. I’ve picked up specialty chocolates there too, in fact you can get gift baskets full of yummy chocolates at Staples. It’s easy to get distracted with everything they have to offer.
It’s no wonder we all like to go to our local Staples which lucky for us is only five minutes away from home. So we headed there just last week and you got it we stocked up on school supplies for my daughter.
For this upcoming school year she was given a list where it specified that for Math class she can only use one of a few models for exams so we had to make sure to pick up one of those models. Staples carried all of the ones on the list and she picked out the one she liked the best.
If you’ve been to Staples (and who hasn’t?) you know that they have every office and school supply you can think of. It’s all laid out nicely so everything is easy to find.
My daughter is a budding artist so when it comes to her pencils she’s very picky as to what she wants to use when it comes to her drawing. Fortunately Staples gives her options. Her and her dad above are looking over the pencils, they look so serious but hey a girl and her art right? 🙂
It seems every year we need to get more binders, fortunately Staples has binders galore in a rainbow of colours.
However, for this visit we were here for more than just school supplies. We had been keeping an eye out for a certain type of tech item that we hoped to find at a reasonable price. We noticed in our Staples flyer that they had a few of this kind of item on sale so we went to go and check the out in person.
So what was that item? My daughter needed a new monitor for her desktop computer. You can see her below scoping out the different monitors.
Of course she does homework on her computer, gaming (no surprise) and she also has her drawing tablet connected to her computer for her animated designs. She needed a decent monitor, but we needed one that was not going to make our wallets cry, was a decent size but not too big as her desk space area is not huge.
We found the perfect monitor for her. It’s a widescreen but it’s not so big it takes up a lot of her desk space, it’s a reliable brand and it was under a $100, so mom and dad are happy, we have a happy teen and now she has no excuse when it comes homework time. We will remind her of that once school starts haha.
Next time we go to Staples I’m hoping it’s some shopping for myself as mom needs a new laptop. For now though I just had to admire them from afar while going through laptop section at Staples. Don’t forget you can also get smartphones, iPads, other tablets, cases for them and other accessories at Staples too. It really is a one stop shop for so many things.
Until next time Staples, which knowing us, will probably be next week. Make sure to check them out as they always have great deals happening online and in-store.
