The last days of summer before school starts (and even the first few weeks of school) are such stressful times in our house trying to get everything ready! I don't have time to go from store to store looking for both school supplies and all the gear that my kids need for school (like backpacks, lunch boxes, shoes, clothing, socks). I get tired just thinking about it all!
Whether your kids are heading back to school soon or they've already started the new school year, Amazon is the perfect place to shop for all your back-to-school needs (or even the ones that you forgot!). The Amazon Back-to-School shop has everything you need from binders to backpacks to the coolest fashion and gear. Plus, with such a huge selection, you're sure to find items that are as unique as your kids are at great deals.
Plus, I love how easy it is to shop from Amazon on either my computer or phone, and I'll get it all delivered to our door in just 2 days with our Amazon Prime membership. No need to drag the kids (or even myself) out to the store! If you don't already have Amazon Prime, you can try it out for 30 days for FREE.
My boys are in 7th and 9th grades, so I'm a bit sad that no crayons are needed this year. But, it's fun to shop for items that are unique for them. My 7th grader has a unique personality and loves all things bright. Here are a few items we picked out for him for back-to-school from the Amazon shop:
My son loves Under Armour products, and he loves bright colors. This backpack is unique because it's reversible – you can wear it camo side out or orange side out and even swap out different shoulder straps if you want!
With all my boys have to take to school and lug around to their classes each day, I buy each of them a zipper binder to help them stay organized. They can place homework in their binder as soon as it's completed so they always have it on hand. Plus, they can keep filler paper, folders for handouts, and pens and pencils on hand within the binder.
With middle school and high school students, a planner is a must to keep track of homework and tests and quizzes! A planner is a great way to have a unique product, since there are so many to choose from, including this fun teal planner with paper airplanes on the cover.
Mechanical Pencils are a must in our household. I'm not sure if it's because they don't have to sharpen mechanical pencils or they like how you can customize the colors, but mechanical pencils are my boys' favorite. I try to stock up on them at the beginning of the school year so we have enough to last all year.
Another essential for the new school year is to stock up on my boys' favorite vitamins – SmartyPants Kids Complete Daily Gummy Vitamins – to help my boys start their day off right.
My boys are growing, which means they are always hungry! Finding enough items to pack in their lunch is a tough chore. That's why I love that I can order snacks and lunch sides from Amazon so I'm always stocked up for packing lunches each day.
What about you? What's on your back-to-school shopping list?
