Back-to-School: it's the most wonderful time of the year. My kids are much older now, but I can vividly remember all the prep work to get ready for a new school year like it was just yesterday. It feels like it was just yesterday.
As school bells across America start to ring, it's time to gear up! Amidst the number two pencils, glue sticks and standard notebooks on everyone's lists, there are numerous ways to stand out and define your style with back-to-school supplies.
While we were busy taking trips to the beach and planning evening BBQ's, the new school year was sneaking up on us, and it's almost here! Before you or your child gets a panic attack though, take a breath and check out some ways you can prepare your family for going back to school.
We have compiled a list for the best office supplies (and back to school supplies) that can be used to keep your organized and on top of your work. It might even spark a bit of creativity within you because it is all so glorious to look at. Forget wholesale Staples notepads, and get inspired.
If you're really having a great summer don't go to Staples. I did and what I saw sent me running for the door. Back-to school stuff was everywhere. Notepads, pencils, pens, even protractors, all piled up to the ceiling. It was a big slap in my face that summer doesn't last forever.
Next weekend, you'll find me running through all the kids' clothes to see what still fits, what needs replacing and what needs repairing. I'd rather buy one cute thing for the kids -- something purely for the love of it -- than waste money on four new pairs of jeans they don't need.
