Back to School Shopping Guide 2015


We're scrambling to get all of the school supplies our kids will need for this quickly upcoming school season. Getting everything ready for going back to school can be a bit overwhelming. These products are features that will make everything just a little bit easier. If these help you please leave a comment for me. I love to hear from you, my readers!

Day Designer Rugby Stripe Weekly/Monthly 8 x 10 Planner June 2015-July 2016
Blue Sky Planners has a wide variety of planners to choose from, but this one is my favorite. It's stylish and functional. Every student needs a planner for school to keep track of homework, class times, projects, and activities. This will help them stay organized.


Five Star Zipper Binder with Expanding Pocket
When I was a kid we called these Trapper Keepers, but enough about how old I'm feeling. This zipper binder keeps everything a student needs for class in one place. The expanding pocket on the outside adds more storage room where you can stash a textbook if need be. Inside is a 5-pocket expanding file will keep your class materials organized. The 3-ring device can hold up to 380 loose sheets. Another pocket on the inside (not expandable) will hold some more papers for you. The best part of this back to school supply? It comes with a shoulder strap and can even be carried like a backpack. My Trapper Keepers weren't even close to being this cool.

Five Star Expandable Backpack
Speaking of backpacks, Five Star has an expandable one of those too. This is a durable backpack for school that will definitely hold everything you need. The main compartment and front pocket both expand giving you more room. Carry your textbooks, notebooks, pencils, pens, ruler, water bottle, lunch, and more. The shoulder straps are extra padded for better comfort while carrying. If I was going back to school, this is the backpack I'd want.

AcuRite 13020 Intelli-Time Projection Alarm Clock with Temperature and USB Charging
I LOVE this alarm clock! It tells me the time, of course, the temperature indoors and outdoors, and the moon phase. I can project the time on the ceiling for easy viewing. I can also set different wake up times for the weekdays and weekends. It automatically updates for daylight savings time. AND I can charge my phone or mp3 player with the USB port in the back. Perfect for waking up for school with a fully charged phone.



NERD Journal
If your student is anything like me she needs a journal to vent her thoughts at the end of the day. This one is particularly awesome because it's a Nerd Journal. Plus, it's a hardcover that contains 128 pages. It also contains some interesting science facts, funny science jokes, and more.

Periodic Thoughts: 30 Postcards for Your Inner Science Nerd
This is perfect for your college science geek. She can rip out a postcard (not just any postcard - a sciencey, nerdy postcard) and let you know how she's doing. Each card has periodic table designs with science quotes.

Zackees Award Winning LED Turn Signal Cycling Gloves
Mounted turn signals have to be mounted and often get stolen. These gloves will handle any weather, are machine washable, and the LEDs are bright so motorists can see them. They are made of lycraspandex and come in black, red, or white. Perfect back to school gift for any student bicycling to class.

Unfortunately, going back to school means germs from all the kids being in one building. Headaches are apt to happen as well. Thermal-Aid packs come in cute animals - koala bear, rabbit, hippo, elephant, monkey, and bear. They are washable. Use as a heating pack or cold pack. Heat in the microwave or cool in the freezer. Easy and all-natural.
