Back-to-school shopping with tweens and teens is like a whooole new thing. They have pretty strong opinions about what they love and don’t love. Even more than preschoolers, if you can believe that. (Though at least they don’t insist on wearing their swimsuit and flip-flops to school in the winter, ha.)
So we had a great time putting together this third back-to-school shopping miniguide on behalf of our partner JCPenney, to help you fin tons of cool stuff for your older kids.
And it’s all so affordable. Yes!
From backpacks and school gear to clothing essentials and those fun accessories that make the school year just a little more exciting, we hope you find lots here to love.
And if you’ve got younger kids, be sure to check out our guides to cool, affordable back-to-school shopping for preschoolers and grade-schoolers too.
