10 Back to School Tips That We All Need

It’s that time again when most parents (even us homeschooling parents) are bombarded with the fact that it is almost time to send your kids back to school. As a homeschooling parent, I rather enjoy all the ideas that I see floating around on Pinterest- back to school ideas, school organization (I am addicted to these) as well as school lunch ideas for kids. Today I will share with you a few posts that I have come across that puts a bit of pep in my step.

Don’t forget your back to school supplies! I must confess I am a stationery junkie (I have a box of books that are simply ‘pretty’ and pens that are off limits to everyone in my house). Here are my favourites to date:

1. Frixion Pens

These are my all time favourite pens. They are gel ink and are eraseable- need I say more? Love, love, love!

2. Laminator

This is a must have for me with all the printables that we create. When I do get lazy, I simply use protective sheets.



3. Wite Out

I have been addicted to these since high school. I can even remember my first pack (does that mean I have an awesome memory or I am just plain weird? )


4. Journal

I recently started bullet journalling and it has been fantastic. I love the fact that I now know that when I have an idea I simply add it to my book in bullet form for that particular day and categorize it by: home, blog, personal etc.
