LYNCHBURG (WSLS 10) - Back to school shopping can get hectic trying to track down everything on the list in packed stores. Mother of two Jamie Clark who is also with Macaroni Kid Roanoke says make back to school shopping fun.

"I have two kids so we have two school lists. I take them one at a time because when you're trying to shop with two kids, with two different lists, you're going to lose your mind in Target and that's not cool. I take them one at a time, make it a special afternoon outing with each of them and that way I can focus on just that one child, just their list and we have a lot more fun that way," said Clark.

While you're out shopping she says pick up a Back to School Gift for your children's teachers. Typically you think about end of year gifts but a gift at the beginning can break the ice. Gift cards are a great gift but a simple mug with pens and pencils is nice too.
