Back-To-School 2020

Back-To-School 2020

None of us know exactly what to expect from the start of this school year, but we do know it is going to look a lot different than years past.

Get Outside

So much change can be hard on our kids. As a parent, I feel that it’s my job to create a safe and inspirational setting for my kids to learn. I highly encourage parents to schedule as much outdoor time as possible. In fact, studies have shown that learning outside can help reduce distance learning fatigue. Now more than ever our family is utilizing every bit of our outdoor space whether it be for homework, snack time, playdates, family time, and small gatherings. For this reason, it’s important to me that our lawn looks it’s best.

It takes a lot of work to keep your lawn, trees, and shrubs looking gorgeous which is why I trust TruGreen to maintain my lawn and make sure it is lush and ready. TruGreen uses scientific expertise and a tailored, customer-centered approach to keep your outdoor space looking its very best.

Most people don’t know that Fall is one of the most crucial times to care for your lawn. It’s important to have a lawn care expert like TruGreen tend to your lawn before it goes dormant so you get a beautiful lawn come spring. Luckily as a new customer, you can save 50% for your first time service during their Labor Day special. And for those of us dealing with pesky mosquitoes and other pests, they can help treat that as well!

Ready For Anything

Whether you’re facilitating virtual learning, getting the kids to school, commuting to, and from work things are going to be hectic no doubt. I like to make sure that I always have Chinet Comfort Cup To-Go Cups on-hand for several reasons. Personally, I love that the 16- ounces Chinet Comfort Cups fits my single-serve coffee machines, they keep my morning coffee or tea hot, yet cool to the touch and ultimately allow me to carry on with my busy day without worrying about spills or messes. My kids love using them to take snacks to soccer practice or for breakfast cereal on the go when we are rushing to the bus stop.

Time-Saving Tips

Meal planning is another huge time-saver as many of us know. On Sunday I prep all my proteins and veggies for the entire week . Then, when I’m ready to make dinner- I cook up the protein, throw in my veggies, and toss with Lee Kum Kee Panda Brand Sauce for Broccoli Beef, Orange Chicken or Lettuce Wrap. These sauces make it easy to prepare delicious meals at home in minutes and are a must-have pantry staple in my kitchen- my family loves the Panda Brand Beef & Broccoli sauce. Lee Kum Kee has been sharing authentic Asian flavors for over a century. They have over 200 sauces and condiments and plenty of quick, family-friendly recipes on their website. Available in the Asian food aisle of your local grocery store.

Whether kids are distance-learning or doing after-school homework, we all know they can’t study properly when they’re hungry, right? So what I do is keep my freezer stocked with Farm Rich snacks – they’re easy to make, wholesome, delicious, and packed with calcium and protein. My kids LOVE these Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks (America’s favorite!) and the Mozzarella Bites (microwavable), made with real cheese, and great with dips or my kid’s favorite soup. I also keep a bag of their frozen Meatballs in the freezer for quick weeknight dinners. Find them at your local grocer in the freezer section, and online.

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy start to the 2020 school year. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @erekav
