Item 1 - The North Face Unisex Recon Squash (Youth)

Why I Purchased This Item Last Year - When I was in grade school, my backpack and I would to part ways in December and then I would receive a new backpack for Christmas. This was very costly for my single mother, but we had to do it. I wanted to avoid the extra cost with my little one and I decided to purchase a more expensive backpack. That is why I choose THIS ONE! :) It is only $5.59 at the time of this post.

Item 2 - Dymo Label Machine

I am a believer in this machine because it makes my life so much easier! I use it for labeling items for the backpack, the notebooks, the pencil cases, and much much more! These are also create for Thank You Cards and Birthday Invitations. Also, the paper is extremely affordable - $5 - $10 for a roll of 250 labels. Also, you do not have to purchase ink for the printer. I have had mine for four years! It is only $17.88 at the time of this post.

Item 3 - Rubbermaid LunchBlox Sandwich Kit, Green

This is a super affordable add-on item that will supply your child with a breakfast container (great for oatmeal, cereal, or overnight oats). Then, the larger container is great for a sandwich and it is super sustainable instead of plastic bags. Next, you have the snack container, which is GREAT for snacks for ranch dip for carrots. Purchase this now! It is only $5.59 at the time of this post.

Item 4 - SmartyPants: A Box of Brain-Building Questions, Puzzles, and Games

When the children arrive home from school, this is a great opportunity to extend learning from school to your home. The SmartyPants brand is great for car rides home and to keep the children busy while you prepare dinner.

Item 5 - American Tourister Minnie Mouse ID Tag Travel Accessory, Minnie Mouse

Remember, I use a luggage tag instead of a new backpack. My daughter is obsessed with Minnie Mouse and this is a great (and less expensive) option for your family! Find one that matches your son or daughter's current cartoon preferences.
