Back To School Shopping

About two weeks ago, I panicked and realized I had no clue when school started for the kids. Turns out, it’s next week.

MGM (7) is going into second grade and Trixie (5) starts kindergarten this year.

Clothes shopping is relatively easy since they wear uniforms (one order placed, check!), but we’ve only got a few days to get the rest of the gear together.

They both have a list of required supplies, but I’d like to throw in a few fun things, too.

These adorable backpacks are from Land of Nod:

I also discovered this really cool site called Poppin that sells a variety of colorful school and office supplies:

This big pebble eraser comes in a several colors. I would have loved this as a kid!

Target is now carrying a line of school supplies called Yoobi that donates extra school supplies to kids in need with each purchase. I like this idea a lot!

You can organize it all in these cubbies from Land of Nod:

Finally, these scented markers were #1 on my wish list as a kid.
