Fruit of the Loom is Taking Away Stress for Back to School

We’re having a great summer break so far, but every time I look at the calendar I can see summer is on its way out. Before we know it, school will be back in session.

Back to School

I’m starting to get emails from the kids’ schools reminding me about school starting, what check-ups the boys need before class starts, and the stress is really creeping up on me. My oldest is in high school and I’m pretty sure he’s going to need to spend the last few weeks of summer break locked in his room to catch up on his summer reading list. A friend of mine told me that one year her daughter waited until the last minute to do summer reading and decided to watch the movies of whatever books she could instead. It didn’t go so well, she referred to Romeo as “Leonardo” on a test the first week of school!

One year I got so stressed out about getting all the back to school shopping done that I completely forgot that I’d done it all at the beginning of the summer … you know, to prevent stress at the end of the summer. Let’s not talk about the year that I wrote the wrong date on the calendar and woke my kids up early for the first day of school … a week early. Yeah.


Fruit of the Loom understands this stress, too. They know that back to school season is a hectic time and that moms count on the value and comfort of Fruit of the Loom to make things easier. They want to help moms relieve stress with their new “bonus packs” of Fruit of the Loom underwear.


In fact, they sent me a pack of boxer briefs (with 8 pairs instead of the usual 5) for my youngest AND an AMC gift card so we can get in one last de-stressing family movie night before the start of school.
