Before we know it, September will be upon us and kids will be going back to school! While I love the summer, there is something about the back-to-school season that always gets me excited – even though I’m an adult! But now, that anticipation is for my own kids: new teachers and classes, reuniting with friends, and getting back into a normal routine.

Part of that excitement stems from getting organized for a new school year. We love back-to-school shopping, and cracking open a new notebook, sharpening brand new pencils, and choosing a new outfit for the first day.

Before I begin shopping, I like to take inventory first to see what we already have. I’ll rummage through kids’ closets and storage bins to see what clothing still fits, and what’s been outgrown. Together, my kids and I will check school supplies and see whether backpacks, pencil cases, lunch bags and binders have managed to hold up over the course of the previous year. Then, we’ll make a list (I love lists) and then check out the deals online first.

The frugal shopper that I am means I love finding ways to save money and earn travel miles. As an Aeroplan member and wanderluster, I’m constantly searching for ways to earn miles on my purchases so that I can book that next vacation faster. With over 170 retailers to choose from on the Aeroplan eStore, it’s easy to earn miles.

Just in time for back-to-school season, Aeroplan Members will be able to earn up to 7X the miles when they shop at select retailers during the Back to School event via the Aeroplan eStore between August 5-18th.
