Plan your route, make a shopping list. If you’re heading out to do your back to school shopping, plan in advance to minimize stress and make the most out of your time at Yorkdale. Start by writing the places you’ll need to visit by referencing the complete list of stores that are open and checking their new hours of operation, available here.
Create a categorized checklist for the things you’ll need for different grades and years. Here are some ideas to help you get started.
Technology: Stay up-to-date with gadgets that let you study smart like a USB hub that keeps you plugged in and wireless headphones with a built-in microphone and noise-cancelling capabilities.
Clothing: Sort through your closet and drawers to see what you already have and what you need to buy such as basics you need to stock up on and any additional pieces on your shopping wish list.
Accessories: If you’re returning to school, step into the year in style with footwear essentials like sneakers and boots that’ll help complete any outfit. Don’t forget about your backpack! Look for one that’s durable and as functional as it is comfortable. Even if you’re schooling from home, you’ll still need cozy shoes or slippers that offer comfort and support while class is in session.
Furniture: Whether you’re learning virtually or completing assignments at home, make sure your workstation is ready to go with an ergonomic desk and chair.
