Back To School 2015-2016


With having three kids, shopping for school can get very expensive and that’s an understatement! With this years back to school mini-guide I’ll be sharing some of the products that my kids will be using this school year and where you can find them.   I try to shop using sales and coupons when ever possible but when it comes to school supplies I tend to just jump in head first and buy all I need as soon as it comes out.  The main reason for my over-achieving back to school shopping is because if you don’t get the items right when you see them, chances are you’ll never find it again as it gets closer to the school year.


Let’s start with my favorite thing ever, school supplies!!!  I love school supplies.  I love pens, markers, tape, post it notes, index cards, oh and I die for highlighters!  Here are the products that I purchased for my kiddos to take to school. If you click on the images you will be clicking on affiliate links for Please note that they are affiliate links {which simply means that I’ll receive a very small percentage if you decide to purchase that item}.

As if that wasn’t enough, I also had to purchase more supplies! Remember, I have three kids so I had to buy multiples of everything! AHHHHHH!!!!

Next on the list is backpacks and locker decor. My kids like to keep their lockers very basic. The girls have locker lights, a mirror {not shown} and locker shelves. My son, he’s a boy and really doesn’t care about the neatness of his locker.

My kids love the Mead FiveStar Trapper Keeper. It helps to keep all their class work papers organized and all in one place. I personally love the 2″ sewn binders because it makes it easy for me to carry my own work back and forth as needed.

Oh and the paper! My family loves paper and spiral notebooks. I don’t know why but I must have 15 different spiral notebooks on my desk. I love pretty notebooks. All of my kids require at least 5 spiral notebooks. They all prefer the Five Star notebooks because of their quality. They are constantly opening and closing their notebooks and the Five Star cover is very sturdy and really takes a lickin!

The littles will love the Camelio 2 tablet and accessory pack! It makes learning fun!
