It’s almost that time of year again…the kids are bouncing off the walls and beginning to drive you bonkers and you find yourself counting the days until they can return to school.  There’s only one problem, that means that it is also time for back to school shopping.


Typically, when approaching back to school shopping my husband and I have trekked to the store and gone up and down crowded aisles looking for tiny impossible to find items in very specific colors and configurations for what feels like hours.  There is of course the other alternative of shopping on Amazon and searching for every individual item and slowly adding everything to your virtual cart.  In either of these cases school supply shopping is tedious at best and can be torturous when you add the extra layer of having a visual impairment.


If neither of these approaches sounds appealing to you, I encourage you to check out the Target Supply Assist feature.  Target has taken all the annoying aspects of shopping for school supplies away and made shopping as easy as it gets.


The Target Supply Assist feature allows for you to accessibly search for your kiddo’s school and school supply list and have everything that he/she needs automatically added to your basket.  You can quickly review the items to change out items to your own preferences if needed and add extra items that you desire to purchase like backpacks or lunch bags.  Even more convenient you can choose to have everything shipped straight to your door or just pick up everything at the Guest Services desk at your local Target.


Target has made significant improvements to the accessibility of their website in recent years and overall, I found this feature to be accessible with my screen reader with a few minor quirks to the website.  This allowed for me to more independently shop for the supplies that my son needs for school and it saved our family a ton of time and we were able to score 5% off on top of the sale prices with our Target Debit Card.


If you’re dreading the annual trip to the massive piles of crayons, colored pencils and notebooks give the Target Supply Assist feature a try and let me know what you think.  And if you have any tips for shopping while blind, be sure to drop a comment below.
