The Best Way To Go Back To School Shopping

There is nothing more dreaded by parents than back to school shopping, even worse if you have more than one child to dress for success. However, if you plan and prepare ahead of time, you will find the task more enjoyable. Your children are counting on you to get their school clothes and LED shoes right the first go around. While, this may sound easy to them, it is far from it and only you can understand the difficulties of the task. Below, you will discover information about back to school shopping.

Devising A Budget

The first thing you should do is, devise a financial budget for the back to school shopping adventure. The budget will need to suffice all the items that your children will need to begin the school year. With the beginning of school, fall and winter are just around the corner. This basically means that you should only invest in a few summer items, focusing most of your attention on fall and winter attire and LED light up shoes. Once you set a budget for your school shopping, you will be ready to device a shopping list.

Creating A Shopping List

Creating a shopping list does not sound that difficult, but it is not going to be easy either. In fact, you will need to consider every item that your child will need every class. Many schools have now taken this task upon themselves just to make sure parents buy exactly what is required. The list should be available in your local retail store and if you cannot find one, you can always contact the school.

Once you receive your school supply list, then you will be able to put more focus on the attire, shoes that light up and accessories. Believe it or not, boys are much easier to shop for than girls, because they will have more of a desire for accessories such as hair bows, belts, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and purses. Boys are going to be more interested in light up shoes, because they want to look cool and trendy.

Check The Child’s Inventory

Before you head out on your shopping adventure, you should check your children’s inventory. Go through their clothing, sock, and underwear drawer, just to make sure they have a decent amount available. If you children’s undergarments are worn, you will want to add these to your shopping list. Be sure to jot down shoes that light up, because your son will not want to go to school without them.


A backpack is a necessity, since children are always expected to carry items back and forth to school and home. There are many different backpack styles available on the market, including the tote bag and backpack on wheels. The size is also something that will need to be taken into consideration. Most kindergarteners and primary school children will not need a large backpack. Teachers do not often require these children to do homework. However, you should still buy a backpack that is large enough to hold a full size book.

Texas A&M Knocks Off No. 1-Ranked Alabama

No. 15-ranked Texas A&M took down No. 1-ranked Alabama 29-24 on Saturday in a game that completely shook up the national championship picture. Alabama was heading on cruise control into the title game before this hiccup against the Aggies, though make no mistake: Texas A&M freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel beat the Crimson Tide fair and square, showing off to a national audience why he earned the moniker “Johnny Football” in his home state of Texas.

Manziel passed for 253 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He added 92 yards on the ground against an Alabama defense that had previously made mincemeat of running quarterbacks like Denard Robinson, though Manziel showed he could get it done through the air, too. He became only the second freshman quarterback ever to win on the road against the AP’s top ranked team. In another one of the day’s most impressive stats, Manziel became the  second freshman in FBS history with 2,000 pass yards and 1,000 rush yards in the same season.

West’s Best Bets – Sin or Snow

West’s Best Bets takes off on another trip leaving the Grand Canyon State and traveling due north to America’s playground, Las Vegas. After spending time at UNLV, we head east into the great Rocky Mountains and visit the People’s Republic of Boulder and the University of Colorado. While one school is located in the City of Sin and excess, the other has banned all alcohol on campus and at all campus events.

A short 5 ½ hour drive northwest of Tempe and Arizona State University is the city of Las Vegas and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Located just north of the airport and 2 miles east of the famed Las Vegas strip is the 337-acre campus which includes a medical center, the state’s only dental school and law school. From it’s humble beginnings in 1951 as an extension program for the state university in Reno, it wasn’t until 1957 when classes met for the first time at Nevada Southern University. A strong desire to break free from the University of Nevada led the students to adopt the Rebel as their name and mascot. It wasn’t until 1964 that NSU graduated its own students and changed to the current University of Nevada-Las Vegas five years later.

Week 11 Equals Perfection for Four Unbeaten Teams

Week 11 is picking up where week 10 left off, a four-way battle to the BCS Championship game. Alabama, Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame continue their 9-0 winning streak as they proceed to dominate college football. Will this be the week where it all comes crashing down for one team? Or will this be the week Oregon finally inches past Kansas St. to claim the number 2 spot? Only time will tell as we take a look at this weekend’s matchups.

Which are the Real Florida Gators?

At the risk of sounding like I’m complaining when I should be happy about the season the Gators are having, I would be lying if I said everything about this season has been outstanding for the Gators.

Now let’s get this out of the way from the beginning. This team has far exceeded preseason expectations and for that, we Gator fans are very pleased. But there are still some troubling signs that signal Florida is still not all the way back yet.

Going into the game this week with Missouri, Florida was ranked #100 in total offense. After the putrid performance they had in the Mizzou game, they are surely not moving up this week. A Mizzou team that is now 1-5 in SEC games and has twice given up over 40 points, held the Gators scoreless in the first half. This despite an interception that set UF up at the 19 yard line.

SEC Job Comes Open and It’s Only Early November

The Kentucky Wildcats have fired Joker Phillips as their head football coach. The Wildcats are a basketball school by reputation, but any time there is a football head coaching vacancy in the SEC, it is big news. There will likely be at least two more openings, one at Tennessee and perhaps at Auburn as well.

My how the mighty have fallen. Tenessee is traditionally one of the SEC’s strongest programs, but have won only one SEC game in the last two seasons. The Auburn Tigers won a BCS National Championship just two seasons ago, now have two wins this year. One of those was an overtime win agaisnt Louisiana-Monroe. The other was over New Mexico State.

And Then There Were 4

Week 10 marks an exciting time in college football as four teams go into the weekend undefeated with an 8-0 record. Alabama, Kansas State, Notre Dame and Oregon are all in the running for a spot in the BCS title game and no one seems to be backing down. If there were ever a year for the four-team playoff system to begin this would be it. Each team is proudly representing (and destroying) a different conference but worlds will collide as each team continues to eye the same prize. Who will come out on top as we enter a nail-biting weekend in college football? Let’s take a look at the matchups for week 10.

Gruden to Tennessee?

‘m sure many of you keep up witht the rest of the SEC. One of the things we like to do is check out other SEC teams message boards to see what’s going on with the competion. If you’ve been checking out the Vol boards lately, you know there is a growing outrage with head coach Derek Dooley. The UT fan base is about fed up with the third straight season of their team getting crushed in the SEC.

With a ground swell of “the coach has to go” there are always one or two coaches whose name cames up as the guy the fans want as a replacement. In this case the number one name that pops up is Jon Gruden, the foirmer coach of the Tanpa Bay Buccaneers.
