I love to plan ahead, so that we aren’t scrambling at the end of the summer! I’ve already started to make lists and gather some of my favorites together, to get ready for back to school!
School Supply Shopping
Why wait until the last minute to get your shopping done? By tackling your school supply shopping ahead of time you can avoid the last-minute crowds and ensure that everything you need is still in stock. Ordering online can also ensure that you stick to your list and budget as well.
Normally you’ll receive a supply list from your school or your child's teacher during the summer. Use thier recommendations and also add to it, and stock up on supply basics for your homework station/ school room as well. This will help to set your family up for a successful school year!
From notebooks and pencils to paper towels and hand sanitizer, a little bit of preparation can go a long way in making the first day of school a smooth and stress-free experience for both you and your kids.
So why not get a head start on the shopping now? Your future self will thank you!
Don't Forget Other School Items You May Need
While clothes and supplies are usually the top priorities, let’s not forget about the other school items that may be needed.
As a mom, it can be overwhelming to keep track of everything, but having a plan and shopping early will make the transition back to school much smoother for everyone involved.
But it’s important not to forget about those items that might not immediately come to mind – things like lunch boxes, water bottles, and backpacks.
A few items that we find a beneficial to starting the school year off strong
Fun Water Bottles
Bento Box Style Containers
Bento Boxes a game-changer for lunches! They offer multiple compartments, allowing you to pack a variety of foods without them getting all mixed up. Get creative with their favorite foods! But remember if you are trying to get your child to try new foods at lunch time please remember to pack safe / enjoyable foods that you know they will eat. Bento boxes allow you to separate foods and ensure that there is something in your child’s lunch box that they will eat without hesitation!
Reusable Sandwich Bags
We’ve tried to cut down on single use bags and to mostly have reusable sandwich bags! You can find them in fun colors and they are perfect for packing sandwiches, fruit slices, or even little treats for your kids to discover!
Ensuring your child is fully prepared for the school year ahead means finding the right mix of helpful accessories to set them up for success.
