We’re less than a week away from the start of a brand new school year, and one of our favorite ways to start the school year off right is to create gift baskets for the kids’ teachers. It’s a fun way to say “thank you” for all the hard work they’ve done to get ready for the year of learning ahead! This year, we’re doing our Back-to-School Teacher Gifts a little bit differently…
After one year of school under our belts, we’ve learned that while our kids’ teachers enjoyed being appreciated with personal gifts, they’re often much more appreciative of extra supplies for their classrooms (as otherwise they may have to use their own money to purchase the supplies). So while we were shopping for the required supplies each of our kids needed to bring in for their classrooms, we decided to grab some extra supplies for each of their teachers as well.
Shopping for Back-to-School
Back-to-school season has always made me giddy – there’s nothing I love more than great deals on brand new school and office supplies! This might be the one time of year when I actually look at the circulars that come out each week, searching for the best deals on new crayons, markers, notebooks, and more. I’m truly like a kid in a candy store when I’m shopping for new school supplies for my kids!
Getting to order extra supplies while shopping online and putting additional goodies in my cart at our favorite stores for my kids’ teachers? That’s a major win for me! With the awesome savings I can get online and in stores during the back-to-school season, I’m able to purchase more supplies for less money!
I love being able to help my kids’ teachers in this tangible way, and using PayPal to purchase these supplies makes it easy. In the stores, I can use my PayPal account to pay for our purchases, and online, I can check out with PayPal!
With PayPal One Touch, there is no need to type in credit card information or re-enter my username and password on every app or website where I pay with PayPal while shopping online. I just log in to my PayPal account and choose “pay with PayPal” when I’m ready to checkout. Plus, I can “Get Ahead of the Class with PayPal” and take advantage of PayPal’s exclusive offers with select retailers that can make my Back to School shopping even more affordable, giving me more room in my budget to buy extra supplies for my kids’ teachers!

Give Back with PayPal
I also love that PayPal is helping us to give back this Back-to-School season! 100% of proceeds from the PayPal Giving Fund go to selected partnering charity organizations, such as Let Girls Learn, YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. And during the Back-to-School Season (August 12-31, 2016), donations made through the PayPal Giving Fund will receive a 1% match from PayPal. To learn more about the PayPal Giving Fund and how to donate, go to paypal.com/givenow.
