Kroger BTS TikTok Live UNI

Line up! Back-to-school season is in session. Which means that between making lunches, ferrying the kids to and from soccer practice and finding some time for yourself, that white-board calendar is about to become a whole lot more crowded. This year, though, we’re determined to take the stress out of BTS.

That’s why we teamed up with mom-of-two Sierra Honeycutt and our friends at Kroger for a special Back-to-School-themed TikTok Live. In it, Sierra teaches us a few of her best tips, tricks and hacks for seamlessly getting back into the swing of things. And—hint, hint—there’s one place she relies on to get it all done. At Kroger, you can shop everything your family needs in one place, plus enjoy the same great deals whether you’re in-store or online.

Speaking of great deals, Kroger has over 250 different school supplies that are all under $3—a serious help when it comes to stocking up for the new year. Not only that, but as Sierra points out, you can even pick up plenty of beauty items for yourself (like makeup blenders and tinted sunscreen) at the same time. Convenient, right?

Of course, Sierra does all her family food shopping at Kroger, too. Think: weeknight staples and kid-friendly snacks galore. One of her favorite ways to put dinner on the table and have some fun at the same time? Pizza night with her kids, where everyone picks their own toppings, of course. (Psst: Naan bread is one of the time-saving secrets.) 

As if it could get easier (it can), Kroger offers $15 off your first pickup or delivery order. Sierra’s a fan: “Especially after school, I love pickup. You can just drive up and they literally put everything in your car.” After-school also means arts and crafts time at the Honeycutt household. Check out these super-cute suncatchers she made using supplies from Kroger:
