Time to get the kids ready to head back to school


With school getting ready to start up again it's time to start thinking about school supply shopping. With the kids school lists growing longer and longer each year it seems I try to find the best bang for my buck. One way I do this is by finding brands that make quality products that will last for my children. Some of the products that I have found that my kids and I really like are from brands like Scribble Stuff, U.S.A. Gold and The Board Dudes.



I have been a fan of the U.S.A. Gold pencils for awhile now. These pencils come pre-sharpened so no need to sit and sharpen all of them before sending them to school. The erasers do a wonderful job and do not smear the mistake all over your paper. They are made from premium cedar wood and are also made in Tennessee. So not only are you buying a quality made pencil but also helping keep jobs here in the United States. 


I am not sure about you but I love fun colored ink pens. I personally think they make taking notes fun and easier to remember. Scribble Stuff makes fun and colorful ink pens to meet your needs. They have colors like metallic, neon, glitter and classic colors for you to choose from. The pens have the comfort grips on them so they are comfortable to hold and large clips on them so you can easily attached them to notebooks.


One thing that I am big on when school is in session is being organized when it comes to dinner, because of the crazy busy schedule we have. Things seem to get super busy once school starts because we also have cheer practice, football games, church and homework. So for me to keep a sane mind and be able to get dinners on the table before we have to run out the door I make a dinner plan/calendar so I know what I am cooking for the week/month. I do this by using a magnetic weekly dry erase board. The board comes with a marker, 4 vinyl and repositionable magnets as well as a cork magnet with 2 push pins. 


These are some products that I like and use daily while my kids are in school. What are some of your go to products?

How would you like to win these products for your family? If You Would then be sure to stop back by during the Oh, The Places You'll Go Giveaway Hop that starts on August 9!
