It’s that time of the year again. Summer vacation is over and the new school year is begining (or has already begun). 

Whether you're back-to-school already or still enjoying those last few days of summer, new school supplies are a must!

That’s why we’re here to help you breeze through your shopping list with our:

 Back-to-school supplies must-haves:

  • Elmer’s Disappearing Purple Liquid Glue: Elmer’s new Disappearing Purple Liquid Glue is awesome for kids as it comes out purple but dries clear! (We recommend it for kids of all ages but it’s extra perfect for those who are just learning how to glue!)

  • Elmer’s Re-Stick Glue Stick: Elmer’s Re-Stick Glue Stick is our go-to for making poster presentations and arts and crafts projects, as it is easily adjustable for up to 5 minutes. What parents love the most about it: no mess!

  • Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Lunch: Pack your child some quick & nutritious lunches minus the mess! These are 100% leak-proof* containers that are perfectly designed for ready-to-go meals and snacks. 

*Not applicable to internal compartments created by inserts. 

  • Sharpie Clear View Highlighters: This highlighter has a unique see through tip so your child can see exactly what they’re highlighting. This makes studying for that big test a breeze!

  • Sharpie Art Pens: Their fine tip makes for picture-perfect coloring and writing, plus they come in 12 colors!

  • Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens: Now your child can brighten up their notes with these beautiful Gel Pens which dry three times as fast as normal gel pens!

    We lay out their backpacks so we know we got all their supplies.

    We always go to pick up theusual basics of back to school before the class lists come out and then after school starts get the specifics of what teachers want the kids to have. That way we miss a lot of the back to school shopping crowds.

    We do separate shopping trips for school supplies, which are delivered to school at an open house the week before school starts, and then for lunch packing supplies.

    I LOVE the Paper Mate InkJoy gel pens in multiple colors. Makes grading papers easier and much more fun.

    Try to get what paperwork needs to be filled out and complete it all before school starts!

    Things go very smoothly when you don't have kids:)! I do like to pore over what stores have this tine of year.

    School starts in August in our county, and rather than blow the whole back to school clothes budget right before the school year starts, we spend half the budget on as many pieces as possible, and save the other half to use during all the Labor Day Weekend sales in September.
