Happy Friday! The weekend started early for me as I took a day off and plan to head to visit my family in my hometown for the weekend. On the list is organizing my Mamaw’s closet at the assisted living home. I know, I know don’t be jealous! We are beginning to think about back to school even though we have a somewhat late start this year as my kids don’t head back until the 28th! Carly Jo is on the ball though and keeping me on my toes to make sure she is organized and ready to go on day one! Here are a few of the things my tween is loving for back to school!
We have tried multiple different backpacks but these have really held up the best. She skipped the monogram this year and we don’t agree on patterns (or much of anything lately) but this has already shipped so we are ahead of the game! Plus, great sale going on right now so two thumbs up.
I think Carly was most excited about her lunch break when we picked up her schedule! Last year she had lunch before 11:00 and she was not a fan. This year with a more reasonable lunch break at 11:45, I think she will definitely be ready to eat. We love the bento style lunches and I think these containers will work perfectly. We tried out the Neoprene Lunch Tote last year and I really love them. They are easy to keep clean and are some watch flexible and stretchy. We have this exact one and even though it was given lots of lunch love, I was able to toss it in the washer and it looked like new. I also find these ice packs to be the most durable and they fit just perfectly in the door of our freezer.
What tween or teen girl won’t have a better day with an adorable and organized locker? I’m loving all the fun locker decor! Definitely stepping it up a notch with wallpaper and this faux light or this chandelier but also keeping her organized with the weekly planner and essentials pockets. I also love the magnetic frames for remembering your besties and the great summer memories! All so cute and ALL on sale!
Minted also has some super cute notebooks which can be personalized in multiple ways including your own photos. These make a simple journaling book but also have the option to add monthly or weekly calendar views. It’s never too early to teach your littles about the art of planning. Plus it helps me practice what I preach because my little for sure will remind me I need to stay on task! Speaking of organizing, Minted also has labels perfect for marking clothes, shoes and supplies like lunch boxes and backpacks.
What are your Tweens loving for back to school this year?
