We’ve still got a whole month to go before back to school around here. But then again, there’s a week of holidays, a week of swimming lessons, and then…it will already be time to start back to school shopping. Time really does fly when you’re having fun! Now is the perfect time to order your school supplies on-line at Stuck On You, and cross a few things off of your to-do list for those last few weeks of August.
This year, my girls picked out new back packs, lunch bags, and water bottles. I certainly haven’t missed packing school lunches, but it will soon be time to start thinking about it again.
These lunch bags are a great size to fit in everything they need. Including a metal water bottle.
I really love all the Stuck On You products, because they are great quality. Maddie’s been using this backpack, lunch bag, and water bottle for school the past two years -everyday. It has held up amazingly well, especially compared to some cheaper versions from big box stores definitely a lesson in “you get what you pay for”. I’d rather buy something that’s good quality and use it for a long time without it falling apart and ending up as more landfill.
To care for these products, I occasionally ran the lunch bag through the top rack of the dishwasher. The water bottle was washed by hand, and occasionally freshened up by letting it soak with a little baking powder in it. Same for the cap, but you can also buy individual replacement caps, if you need one.
I love the pretty backpacks my girls chose this year -there are so many cute graphics to choose from. And Maddie picked out a monogrammed notebook, that she can’t wait to start writing in.
We also got this great pencil case -I love the big size so everything can fit inside. New pencil cases mean it’s time to sharpen pencil crayons. Nothing says back to school to me like sharpening pencil crayons, one of my favourite back to school rituals as a kid, what can I say I still get excited by a brand new pack, some things never change.
Before too long, my sweeties will be headed back to school, but until then a few more weeks of summer fun.
With new backpack, lunch bags, and water bottles crossed off my list, life really is a party!
