Stress Free Back To School Shopping With Google Express

This is a partnered post with One2One Network and Google Express. All opinions are my own.

It’s the first day of school and I can’t believe that we’re already starting a new school year. We had such a fun summer but dare I say that I’m kind of looking forward to getting back in a routine. However chaotic it might be it’s our routine so this year I’ve started to stress less by being better prepared for the chaos.

Knowing that I need to stock up on essentials I did some shopping on Google Express to get everything I needed ready for their first day of school. Did you know that Google Express is so easy to use? There’s retailers that we are already shopping at and I like that I ca get everything easily shipped right to our home. I shopped through one of our favorite stores that we carry a membership at. That’s right! I easily shopped online and made a shopping trip without ever leaving my home. Sounds too good to be true, I know.

But it gets even better: I’m able to give Our Ordinary Life readers an exclusive offer for you to get a free 6-month membership AND free shipping AND $15 off your first Google Express order. Here is how easy Google Express helps my family get back into back-to-school.

Shopping online is so simple and easy and no only can you easily find the things your family uses a lot of but you can also save money with shopping bulk. One of the reasons why we like to shop at bulk stores is because as a big family we go through a lot of stuff. It’s nice to be able to easily shop from home and stock up on back to school essentials.

This week I stocked up on items for our girls lunch boxes and after school activities. It’s important that we keep lots of snacks around so I like to shop and stock up so we always have extras on hands.

Grab and go, that’s my motto. With our girls so busy after school we often grab and go snacks in between activities. It’s also helpful when you’re trying to quickly pack lunch boxes as we get settled back in to our school routine.

We’re taking back our Saturday, there will be no more Saturday trips to a busy store.  With Google Express I can shop at many of my favorite stores without ever spending another Saturday going store to store to get my shopping done. Our new Saturday will include spending more time doing the things we like most, like spending time at the beach.

    This would be a great way to shop. I love to skip the lineups and shop online. We are all ready for Back to School. I have a few little things to pick up and then we are done.

    Famous amos is my favorite! I am so glad to hear about this, my sister will be going to school soon.

    Google Express sounds like the way to go. Save time and money by shopping with them. It’s so chaotic the first few weeks going back to school, this would really help tone down the stress of it all.

    Google Express sounds like something I could use! I love that you can buy bulk and I’ll have to take advantage of that free shipping!

    We are knee deep in back to school shopping and I could really use an express type of service to have those items that I just cant find the time to shop for delivered straight to my door! I’m definitely going to take advantage of your “Sign Up & Save” offer to get $15 off my first order by signing up today!

    Oh this is such a neat way to shop and stock up. It would be so cool to try it out for the first time.

    I am so appalled at how quickly summer went by. There just isn’t enough time in a day to fit everything in.

    I have been hearing some awesome feedback about Google Express and am definitely anxious to give it a try. I can see it being especially handy for shopping those particular stores that tend to draw a large crowd.

    We just did some of our back to school shopping today. We were picking up a bunch of lunch supplies.

    Free shipping! Can I get a what what? I’ve never used Google Express before, so I can’t wait to take advantage of this. Thanks for the heads up!
