Back to School at BJ’s 2012 + Giveaway


It’s that time of year again.  Time to think about sending the kids back to school and off to college.  Yesterday, I attended a special back to school event hosted by BJ’s Wholesale Club, in Hudson MA.  On the tour, I saw many wonderful items that will make BJ’s Club your one-stop-shop for all your needs.

Here is what I found…

For those heading to college, look at these neat dorm items.  Here is the Aroma Electric Tea Kettle, where your student can make ramen noodles, cocoa, tea and more.  The box listed a website where you can find more recipe ideas.
Or how about this cute lunch-sized Crock Pot?   Soups are very easy to make in these.  Hearty and wholesome.
All college dorms need a refrigerator.  This stainless steel 2-door fridge is a great bargain.
I laughed when I saw this oversized (4 ft) bean bag chair.  Easy to move and fun to sit on and do homework.
To save space, BJ’s has stackable stoneware travel mugs in a 6-pack!  Your student will have a clean mug for every day of the week.
BJ’s has a wide assortment of towels, sheets, comforters, pillows, mattresses, hampers, hangers, furniture, and anything else you can think of for your college bound kids.
Next up, are great items for teachers.  This desktop organizer would be helpful at home, too.

This RoseArt caddy is perfect for a classroom.
Any teacher would love this Scotch Laminator and Refill Pouches.  I own this machine, and it is a snap to use.   It’s one of the good investments I’ve made over the years for our homeschool room.

For elementary school teachers, there is a 12-pack of safety scissors for just $7.99.

BJ’s has every type of notepad, pens/pencils, backpacks and supplies imagineable.  Here is a photo of all the school supplies in the front of the club.  I could have made this post extra long with all the product photos I took.  But this gives you a little idea of just how much they have in stock.

Don’t forget, BJ’s is a great resource to help with back to school clothes shopping, too.

Here is another item I wanted to quickly highlight for you.  This Samsung Ultrabook is on Instant Rebate through 9/27/12.  Get $120 off at the register.
