Back to school means one thing: school supplies. With three kids in three different schools (elementary, junior high, high school) we are piling up the school supplies in record numbers. Between all my kids, we have 12 different classes that all have specific supply needs. One teacher wants blue notebooks and black pens, another teacher wants loose leaf binders and blue pens. Some want highlighters while others want pencils, and what on earth is with these super fancy (and super expensive) calculators that they need for calculus and trigonometry? And can someone please tell me what trigonometry is?
One of the biggest issues we always have with going back to school is finding a way to keep all of the classes organized. With 12 classes you can imagine the amount of homework involved. The kids all have special binder reminders that they get from the school, but at home, we need a way for them to stay organized with ALL of their responsibilities. I’m talking school, sports, extra curricular classes, personal plans. Way too much to do!
I found a super simple (and fun) way for them to keep all their to-do lists. I checked out Zazzle’s line of notebooks… really cute designs and fully customizable. I picked ones that were special to each of my girls.
My youngest, Lauryn, is a HUGE panda fan. She loves them and has to have anything with a panda on it. When I saw this adorable panda notebook, I knew I had to get it for her. The fact that I could put her name on it was a bonus.
My middle daughter, Amanda, struggles with a lot of self-doubt. For her, it’s all about building up her self-esteem and letting her know that she is capable of doing whatever she wants to do. I wanted her to remember how awesome she is every single day.
And for my oldest, my tennis player, I knew this was the right notebook for her. We are just starting tennis season and we’ll be inundated with practices and games and finding tennis balls all over the house.
The kids love their notebooks and it’s such a great way to start out the school year with something special for them that they can use to get themselves organized throughout the whole year.
