Sears Canada "Rocks the Halls" for Back to School Apparel & CONTEST! (~OVER~)

Can you believe it's the END of summer?


It's hard to believe that school starts in less than two weeks, as I watch the summer slowly fade out before my eyes.  This year marks a big change in the Jenna Em family, with all 5 of my kids heading to school full-time for the first time ever.  

I try to approach the new school season in an organized fashion, and take inventory of what the kids have versus what they need.  For example, I assess if the backpacks and lunch bags will last another season, and check the drawers to see if the long-sleeved shirts and pants will still fit--and are still in good condition.  How about school supplies?  How many pencils, pencil crayons, erasers, paper, and pencil cases do I need for 5 children?  

With 4 boys ages 4- to 9-years old, we embrace hand-me-downs in my household--as well as purchase new items every season.  Naturally, jeans get rips in the knees--and my middle child bites holes in the sleeves of his shirts.  My only daughter does not receive hand-me-down clothing from her siblings, lucky ducky!
My Boys In New Sears Back-to-School Outfits,
August 2013
Last year I wrote about my Sears Back-to-School Shopping Haul.  Looking back at the photos in that blog post, I not only see how much my kids have grown, but also how many of those clothing pieces have lasted and held up to a year of wear.  I was even able to try out the Kidvantage Lifetime Wear Out Warranty on an item I purchased last year.     

I was so impressed by the Sears track pants I had purchased for my boys last year, that I returned to Sears this year and bought 12 pairs for my 3 youngest boys!  Just as last year, the track pants are still 2 pairs for $14.97--a great value!  I believe that Sears carries a variety of top quality brands at reasonable prices, and my kids always have fun picking out apparel that features their favourite characters!

This month of August, Sears Canada "The Kids Room" has been helping families with school-aged children get ready for back-to-school so they can "Rock the Halls"!  As well, Sears Canada will be rewarding their Facebook fans by surprising them throughout the month of August with opportunities to win a $100 Sears gift card!

Check out the Sears Canada "Surprise & Delight" VIDEO, below, to see the family's reactions!
