Tip of the Week: back-to-school shopping

Now is prime time for back-to-school shopping. Have you been to the mall lately? Everyone is vying for your business. But what about the kids? If they’re like mine, there’s nothing they want to do less, especially if it’s sunny outside.

My advice, arrive as soon as the mall opens. It’s easier to find parking and the stores are less crowded. And, shop somewhere that has activities for the kids.

Today we went to Vaughan Mills. NASCAR Speedpark isn’t cheap (we were lucky to have some discount coupons on hand from a school fundraiser) but it’s lots of fun, especially for active boys. They got to have their fun and I found them some back-to-school clothes at reasonable prices. Everyone wins!

We were all disappointed Eggspectation had closed. We used to go their for a great sit-down lunch at food court prices.
