September is here once again, and many people are getting ready to go back to school. Your little ones are probably filled with mixed feelings — excitement and maybe just a little apprehension about hitting those books.
It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone, and what a strange year it has been. This year, school is going to feel slightly different. While you still have to stock up on the usual supplies such as backpacks, computer accessories, and new notebooks, there’s also physical distancing and preventing the COVID-19 virus from spreading to consider. The kids will want to impress their friends with their new threads and cool swag, but they’ll also want to be healthy and safe!
Let’s explore some new back to school deals on essential supplies that will help keep your children healthy and safe this year.
Facial Masks from Anthropologie
If there’s one thing you’re going to want plenty of, it’s facial masks. These days, facial masks are everywhere from your corner store to the runways of Paris. According to health authorities worldwide, proper facial masks can help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In many places, it’s mandatory to wear them indoors.
Anthropologie, founded in 1992, is a part of URBN Brands, including Urban Outfitters, Free People, Terrain, and BHLDN. They provide bohemian, vintage-inspired clothing and homeware, and you can find them in malls and shopping districts worldwide. To help out its customers through the pandemic, the store created beautiful, reusable cloth face masks. These masks come in prints like Gingham, floral, and tie-dye, and they’re perfect for your fashion-forward daughter or son. These Anthropologie masks are breathable, so they’re comfortable to wear for extended periods, like in the classroom.

Hand Sanitizer Walmart
Who would have ever thought that those little bottles of hand sanitizer would become so necessary? The reality is, hand sanitizer is essential to maintaining clean hands, and it helps prevent the spread of COVID-19. Before school starts, consider a trip to your local Walmart retailer to find incredible deals on hand sanitizer of all sizes.
Walmart carries several sanitizer brands, including Polar Naturals — that comes in a spray or pump — and DELON+. The superstore also sells various sanitizers for dryer hands that require moisturizer, like the Kayala Naturals with hyaluronic acid. Such a brand will keep the hands moisturized as well as clean. Stock up by buying packs with six or nine bottles in one so you won’t have to go back to the shops for another few weeks.
Going back to school will feel a little different this time around, so it’s crucial to prepare correctly and to encourage your children to practice physical distancing and to sanitize their hands frequently. There will be some unusual protocol to face this school year, but with some perseverance, the right supplies, and some patience, schools will start to be back to routine in no time.
