Thinking of anything that has to do with Back-to-School in the middle of July is never fun. We all want to enjoy our summers, relax and have fun. But I know that a few of my friends on Facebook are already talking about their kids going back to school in just a couple weeks. While we are a homeschooling family, my youngest two will be going to a charter school for two days ago so there is still some Back-to-School planning I’ll have to be doing (not to mention the curriculum planning but that’s a whole other story).
While getting ready for Back-to-School can be exhausting, it can also be very time consuming. Running from store to store for clothes, school supplies, backpacks, hair cuts…the list goes on & on. But there is one way to save a little extra time and it’s actually a way that we save time every month. Our two boys like to keep their hair really short, as does my husband, so every few weeks, we head over to Great Clips for all of them to get their head’s shaved. We love going to Great Clips for a lot reasons but the biggest reason is their Online Check-In app. I have it on my phone and we’re out and about on a Saturday (usually out having lunch), I open up the app, put in our zip code and the boy’s names go on the list. When we walk in, we’re almost always immediately taken right back and they get their hair cuts. No having to sit & wait…it definitely saves a lot of time!
Instead of sitting and waiting for hair cuts, we’re already done and out the door. It allows us to have #moreminutes together as a family, playing videos games, going to the park or even going and getting ice cream. When you’re planning your Back to School shopping, make sure you use Great Clips Online Check-In so you can spend more time with the people you love, doing the things you love. And make sure you share your brand new hair cut from Great Clips on social media, tagging it with #MoreMinutes so we can see how great everyone looks!
