Back to School
School Supplies Your Kids Will Love
My favorite part about back to school is definitely shopping for school supplies. The fun colors, the smell of the paper, the gazillions of ways to get organized…
Yes, it’s possible that I have a problem.
I see back to school as a sort of “new year” for our family, and school supplies always fill me with hope and optimism for great routines, fun experiences and a wonderful year.
It can also be a great way to get kids a little more excited to head back to school…
So the kids and I have pulled together some of our favorite supplies for heading back to school.

Mastering Back to School Together
Back to school can be hectic, but it doesn’t have to be hard!
With three kids in school, I’ve learned a few things along the way that help to simplify the entire back-to-school process, while also keeping me sane.
And I’m sharing them all with you!
- The organizational systems we have in place
- The routines we use (and how we remember them)
- Why my kids haven’t missed the bus in three years
- How to have the best first day of school EVER
- How to put an end to homework battles
- How I get my kids talking (and talking and talking and talking) every day after school
- How we manage busy sports seasons without going insane
- The simple tech hack that EVERY parents needs to know
- And so much more!
Plus you can see how I made this amazing command center that keeps me crazy organized – using supplies from the Dollar Store!
Pretty great, huh?!?
