So many people are already back to school! I swear it's like people go back earlier and earlier every year it seems. We don't start until September 6 and I think we're the last kids on the planet to go back. The summer has been fun, but I'm SO looking forward to getting back into a routine and getting the house to myself for five hours a day three times a week. Fifteen whole hours to blog and get work done uninterrupted every week sounds wonderful to me right about now. With the start of the school year looming, however, means that I need to get myself in gear and get organized with the kids school supplies, lunches, and schedules. Here are the products I'm loving for back to school:


A roundup of products that make going back to school fun for everyone

Wemo Mini WiFi Smart Plug
How cool is it that in 2017, we can remotely control our lights and appliances?! Yup, this device lets you control the temperature in your home, whether or not your lights are on and other major appliances from where ever you are, right on your smart phone. Which sounds like it would be tricky to set up and get figured out, but you basically plug it into the wall, download the app, connect it to your wifi and get going with your home automation! Which is super convenient because we keep our home cooler at night for sleeping, then turn up the air during the day so we don't have a ridic electric bill. What's cool about this is I can raise the temp of our home in the preschool drop off line and have the air turned back up so the house isn't roasting when I get back. I'd love to say that this isn't necessary for back to school time, but this is Texas and we run our air for ten months out of the year. If you want to control your home from your phone AND get 20% off your Wemo device, click here! Offer good through Sept. 30, 2017.




Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitizer
Ahhh, back to school time is great for getting back into a routine and for SAHM/WAHMs to get more free time/productive time, but it also means germs run rampant and cold season is near! It seems like my kids always catch a cold sometime during the first two weeks of school since they're surrounded by so many new kids and the germs that come with them. Zoono's water based hand sanitizer kills 99.99% of germs and stays active on the skin for 24 hours. I like to throw it in the kids' backpacks and apply it before school to combat any yucky germs that cause colds, flu and other illnesses. You can get some for your little's backpacks here.

Pure Growth Organics
What mom doesn't like pre-packaged 100% organic foods to easily throw into their kids lunchboxes?! While I make parts of my kids lunches from scratch, I also love the ease of having individual servings of things like organic white cheddar popcorn and organic crispy rice squares. Henry LOVES popcorn and Otto has a sweet tooth. He ate both his and Henry's crispy rice treats, so I know they'll be a hit in his lunches this fall. Pure Growth Organics has a full line of organic kids snacks, including chocolate animal crackers for an after school snack that's yummy and healthy. Want 20% off your next snack order?

OOLY
How cool are these fun school supplies? Henry has really gotten into creating art lately. He's learning how to write letters, and has a solid H and L down for his initials. I'm sure he'll learn the rest this year at preK3! One of the best parts of being a parent is watching your child learn how to express himself and explore his imagination. OOLY's products help him do just that. I even thought about taking some of these for myself... More on that later!

Snip-Its Haircuts For Kids
I'm picky about what products I put on my kids. The skin is the body's biggest organ, and everything you put on it gets absorbed into the blood stream. That's why I like this brand of hair products for my kids. They use plant derived ingredients that are irritant and allergen free. Now, I keep my boys hair cut short because it's way easier to manage, and I'm not one of those moms who gets attached to her son's hair, so I gave them the shampoo and gel and stole the mousse for myself since I have more hair to style. Hehe. Salon haircare products for kids... AND moms! Click here to find a Snip-Its salon near you.



Teal Duck Tape®
You know those products that kinda do everything? They have a million different uses and you find yourself reaching for it again and again, even in unlikely circumstances? That's this tape. Y'all know I love to craft and make my own DIYs. Teal Duck Tape® just created a page on their website devoted to people like me who love to make their own things. There's videos, tutorials and other things to get you inspired to craft! Check it out here. I can't wait to get inspired and to have some time to do fun crafts again after the kids go back to school.

  1. Seattle schools go back after Labor Day as well. A's school started Wednesday, but she doesn't go until Monday as a kindergartner. These all sound like great products!

  4. Oh, I hear ya! I am so ready for school routines to begin but I am not ready to let go of summer. I need to check out That hand sanitizer because my kids get sick all the time when school is on session! And I am so glad you recommended those snacks--I need to pack B's lunches this year and need good organic ideas!
