Back to School with Walgreens (I'm Not Ready for This) Get A Shot, Give A Shot

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

I can not believe that my boys are about to head off to PreSchool. I tease that I can't wait for the break, but really... I'm not ready for this. They are growing up so fast. Sam and Jay are so smart and they are going to have a blast in school. They had some health issues as infants but they have been healthy ever since. My boys aren't yet enough for required vaccines but kids 7 and older can take advantage of the Get A Shot, Give A Shot program at Walgreens. 

The United Nation Foundation's Shot@Life will provide a life saving vaccine to a child in a developing country when your child gets their school immunizations at Walgreens. My boys recently got a round of shots. I took the easy way out and didn't tell them prior to the appointment. I knew they would be scared. What do you do to handle your child's fears of getting shots? As a single mom, I used bribery. I explained that since they were so good, they could pick out a new toy and a treat. How could you talk to your kids about the Shot@Life campaign? Isn't it amazing to give back to a child in need?

When you get that supply list from the teacher you can check two things off the list by stopping at your nearest Walgreens store. Use your Balance Rewards to save even more money on items you might need for home. You don't even need to clip coupons anymore with the new paperless coupons. 

My boys were able to find items from their supply list while we shopped today. They also found a lot of additional items not on the list. Any other moms out there buy candy to keep their kids quiet while shopping? Be honest! I can not be the only one. 

I am glad to be part of #CollectiveBias and the #GiveAShot #shop campaign.
