Back to School Anxiety Not Just for Kids

Find Unique Back to School Supplies Here

Moms, can you believe it’s almost time for the kids to return to school? I’m wondering how many of you are like me….and just a tad relieved and excited at the idea of having the house to yourself again? Tell the truth!! Now don’t get me wrong, I love my kids to pieces but I have found it quite tough constantly entertaining them, feeding them, and taking them places……not to mention the expense. While we are on the topic of money, that brings me to my next point about buying school supplies. I don’t know what your kids are like, but mine are fiercely competitive when it comes to their supplies. It seems the older they get, the more stature and importance the school supplies gain.

Take last year for instance. We went to a large grocery store, shall we say one of the ‘no frills’ giants. I was so proud of myself for managing to buy both kids supplies for way less than I had hoped. So what happened? The previously ‘really cool’ stuff was no longer ‘cool’ as half the other kids in the class had it too. So we ended up spending way more money in the end replacing it, as my kids wanted more ‘unique’ stuff.  Remember also, buying your kid’s supplies isn’t just for them – the teacher desperately needs the supplies too.  Especially in this economy, we need to support teachers as much as possible! For teachers, and parents, shopping online is a fantastic way to save money and time, and you can also team up with other moms to take advantage of discounts and share/reduce shipping costs.

So this year, take a look at these super cool personalized lunch boxes. My kids love them, they make a great back to school gift, and it sure beats chasing the kids around the store while you find what you are looking for. I can also tell you that, as a former elementary teacher, your kid’s new teacher will also love them! I remember teaching first grade one year, and so many of the kids would eat the wrong lunch. Of course, being so young, they don’t notice really as many of them have forgotten what Mom told them they packed for them. Most of the time its harmless, but certainly causes a few tears  and some hair pulling for teacher and relevant moms as we try to sort it out. But if your child has allergies or a specific diet, it can be far more dangerous.

So, check out these lunch boxes– there are tons of different kinds and some even have a little chalkboard to write your little one a message!!  You can also get personalized binders, notebooks, and many other personalized products.  Remember they save lots of confusion in the classroom, not to mention the money you save as you won’t need to buy replacements because they are lost!
