Get Organized for Back to School!

Share

Earlier today I posted about the emotional side of sending your kids back to school, or sending them to school for the 1st time! Now I want to share some tips to get organized for going back to school & where to find great deals on school supplies!

I recently had the honor of reviewing some great school supplies from Office Max & receiving organizing tips from Peter Walsh & I would like to share them with you as well.

In addition, I wanted to let you know that Office Max offers weekly deals on school supplies with some for only one penny! Here is the link to that page: Penny Deals. Seeing as how I just went school supply shopping a couple of days ago, I know you honestly can't beat some of these deals!

Here are some of the school supplies they are offering that I had the chance to check out:

The Schoolio Von Hoolio Darling Drawstring Bag- $5.99
So colorful & made of sturdy material!

Schoolio Von Hoolio Cupcake Composition Book- $3.29

And here is the entire Collection:

All of the products are very sturdy & quality made. My daughter especially loved the fun colors! She fell in love with the clipboard, pencil box, & bag. Not your usual drab school supplies that's for sure! These products can be purchased at Office Max stores nationwide.

Lastly, here are some of Peter Walsh’s back-to-school organization tips:

TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR HOME

Hope these tips have helped & now you know where you can find some super cheap school supplies as well!
