10 Back-to-School Items That May Not Be on Your Shopping List — But Should

·5 min read

With life on the road back to normal, we can finally start prepping for back to school knowing that most children will be able to go back in-person. And because your child may have spent last year doing online schooling from home, it makes this school year that much more exciting — and busy. You may have been able to hold off on school shopping last year, but this time, not so much. If you’re wondering what to buy or where to go to help ensure both you and your child have the support for a successful year ahead, then look no further because CVS has you covered.

As a parent, your top priority is making sure your child stays confident and their health is supported during the school year, and CVS is making it easier to achieve that with an array of products and deals. When you spend $40 on select products, you can get $10 in ExtraBucks. CVS is also offering a special deal on vitamins: From August 1 to 7 shoppers can buy one, get one free and from August 8 to August 28 they can buy one, get one at 50 percent off.
