As a parent of two elementary-aged kids, a wife to one (who is in a doctoral program I might add), a girlfriend and a budding entrepreneur, my days are full.  Even off-days and flex-schedule days are full!  Each school year I am looking forward to the end of the school year for a brief reprieve.  Summer.   We are almost there … a few more days!

As the summer hours, days, moments and holidays & events come to a quick close, there comes a time when I am panic stricken.  I realize I have to go back, find the school list that came home in the last bundle of paper that is still in the backpack, or look online in hopes that the new teacher has it posted, or worse yet, venture to the store in search of the infamous school supply list.

Not for one, but for two kids!

Different.  Different lists.  Different stores.  Different prices.  A lot of time.  A lot of gas.  A lot of frustration.  A lot of money on all of those things that are not on the list that find their way into the cart.  A lot of anxiety and then to drag it all into the building on meet-the-teacher night.  Uuggh!

So, we have created some relief!  PackEd is a division of 4M Educational Services has made school supply shopping a breeze for busy families – in a less stressful and more convenient way!  We shop for you!

All we need is two things: a) your list of supplies and b) payment.  That’s it.    There are no contracts.  No registration fees.  No hidden costs.   These convenient customized school supply packs are filled with brand-name products that match the requests of each school supply list.
