NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 21, 2018

As the summer comes to an end, the back-to-school season is just heating up. Luckily, Target can help busy parents reduce stress and set their kids up for success. Recently, Mom and Lifestyle Expert Dana Holmes teamed up with Target and YourUpdateTV to provide some helpful tips on navigating the stressful back-to-school season.

Luckily, teachers are pretty organized and they send out a list of supplies and instructions to help us parents pull things together before the school year kicks off. Still, I can't help feeling like I'm missing something.
That's why Target offers School List Assist where schools register supply lists directly with Target so that all you have to do is find your school in a directory on and click to buy your kids' supplies. It doesn't get much easier than that!

Target is making it easier than ever for families to get the basics as well as score the hottest trends and styles from awesome in-house brands like Cat & Jack and Up & Up with trends like unicorns, novelty prints, positive messages and learning and coding

Pick-up exclusive backpacks, lunch kits, locker and dorm décor, not to mention supplies from beloved brands like Crayola, all at great prices. Think, $8 denim, $4 graphic tees, $0.50 and $0.99 supplies – and REDcard holders get an extra 5% off.

College students love to personalize their spaces, and Target's exclusive Room Essentials, Opalhouse and Project 62 collections have plenty of stylish décor options to choose from—like triangle-tufted pillows and decorative bookends to faux succulents and printed lanterns.

They have great must-haves at an incredible value. For example, Twin XL sheet sets start at just $9.99 each and you can find comforters for $14.99 and hanging pendant lamps for just $7.99!

Target also offers a new service called College Order Pickup—which allows you to shop thousands of college must-haves, on and pick them up at a Target store near campus when you arrive. Plus, you save 15 percent on nearly your entire order!
