Back to school time – when it’s still blazing hot but you are running around buying school supplies and trying to convince your kids to try on long pants!
Returning to nightly homework and afterschool activities, it can be an overwhelming time of year. But we also know how important dinners are for children and families. So, I’ve found something to help: The Back to School Toolkit from The Scramble.
The Scramble is an online meal planner that helps busy parents get healthy meals on the table with less time, money, and stress.
The Scramble gives thousands of families a ready-made, healthy, and seasonal dinner plan for the week (which is completely customizable!), including side dishes, a make-ahead breakfast option, and a grocery list, sent right to your inbox or phone for just a few dollars a month.
The Scramble makes dinner during back to school time so much easier while helping you to save money, and most importantly – sanity! Let’s take a look at what’s in this helpful toolkit being brought to you by Kidoinfo and The Scramble.
The Back-to-School Toolkit
First and foremost is a Back to School Sale on The Scramble – get 25% off memberships or renewals when you use the code BTS2019! The Scramble’s prices are already really affordable but when you add in this huge discount, why not give it a try? Visit here to check it out!
(A note: I love The Scramble so much I decided to become an affiliate for them – this means that when you buy a Scramble membership through links on this page, I receive a small commission which I put towards running Kidoinfo.com.)
Second in the Toolkit is a really cool How to Get Your Kids to Pack Their Own Lunches printable. If you choose to sign up for The Scrambel, you can print this out and use it to help start to teach your younger children how to pack their own lunches! It’s so fun and once you teach them – that’s one thing off your plate.
Last but not least is a fantastic giveaway running August 18 – 24, 2019 where you can win Packit products. They are giving away one bento container, which has customizable compartment walls, so that you can fit all different kinds of foods into it and one collapsible freezable ice bag, which means you can say good-bye to ice packs and worrying that food won’t stay fresh long enough.
