Wow, this summer sure has flown by, hasn't it? Pretty soon, it will be time to send those kids back to class! (If you haven't already. Some schools open earlier than others!) We still have a couple of weeks of summer break left, but once school starts, I will have a high school student in my home. That's right. Kyle, my little baby boy, will be a Freshman. How on Earth did that even HAPPEN?! It seems like only yesterday he was sitting in my lap, telling me I was the best Mommy in the whole wide world. Now he towers over me, and is rather stingy with the hugs and kisses.
While I am definitely eager for school to start, I have to admit, I absolutely despise back to school shopping. Half the time, the stores are crowded with parents frantically trying to fulfill their supply lists. And of course, more often than not, half of the things I need are nowhere to be found.
So this year, I am doing things a bit differently. Rather than heading to our local mass-retailer that carries everything under the sun from food to clothing to housewares and more, we're shopping for back to school supplies at Staples. After all, Staples specializes in supplies for school and the office, so they've always got exactly what we need in stock!
Recently, we received a nice assortment of back to school goodies from the generous folks at Staples. Obviously, having a teen boy, the more feminine designs like the cute ladybug binder below will stay home and become part of my preschoolers' crafting supplies. Kyle does love the fun folders though, especially the skull print!
Staples really has some adorable kids' designs perfect for children of all ages. Check out these super-cute erasers! I just love the latex-free TMNT and SpongeBob designs. And see that clever looking "lipstick" tube? It's an eraser, too! This would be perfect for all of those teen and tween girls out there!
So if you're looking for an easy, relatively painless way to get all of your back to school supplies without running into insane crowds and poorly stocked shelves, definitely head on over to Staples. They have everything a student could ever need like paper, notebooks, scissors, and even some pretty awesome calculators and computers. And with designs that kids absolutely love, your kids might just become a bit more eager to head to class this year!
