If you’ve walked through a Target or office supply store near you lately you know that it is back to school time. The great news for those of you headed back to school, or with kids headed back, is that there are lots of handmade options that will help to set you or your child apart from the pack this fall.
Finding the right three-ring binder can be an ordeal, but take a look at this great option from Crown Bindery. Their binder makes organization a breeze and lets you choose how many pages to put in each section, and how to label them for maximum efficiency!
What better place to put your binder and books then in a great messenger bag, like this one created by Milkshake Baby. If you search on handmade sites like Etsy or Artfire you can find a huge variety of backpacks and messenger bags for boys and girls. When I was in elementary school, we all had backpacks, but the messenger bag is hugely popular now and a chic look!
Depending on the age of your child, and how many kids you have headed back to school, you might find it helpful to have personal baskets full of school supplies at the ready. I love these by Angel Accents. Not only are they stylish, but they will also help to stop fights over who gets what, and that’s a helper that all moms could use!
Long gone are the days of the brown paper lunch bag. Instead, try a reusable sandwich bag like this one from Southern Traditions. Cute and eco-friendly! What more could you ask for?
Last, but not least, keep your pens, pencils, erasers, etc. in check with a fabulous pencil case by Kukubee. This fun design is sure to have you or your child smiling every time they have to pull out something to write with.
Don’t forget, it’s easy to go handmade this back to school season! See you next week!
