Planning for the School Year

When August arrives, we not only rush out to buy school supplies but we have to get Fall Ready. We have to think about leaving behind all the leisure flip flops of summer, the carefree days, and get ready to be back to serious. Besides school supplies our kids need new clothes, new sneakers, lunchboxes, and sometimes a new backpack. So we browse the online sales, run to the stores to compare prices and start writing lists of what we need. Well, with the cost of gas and the wanting to enjoy every last minute by the pool or at the beach, go to Amazon for your back to reality needs.

Backpacks/Laptop Carriers

Comfortable Footwear

Going back to school (and work) means getting more comfortable shoes and putting away the sandals til next year. We need to look closely at our needs. Will you just be walking with your new sneakers? Or will you use them to hike, travel and just get through the shorter days of fall.

Bring Your Lunch to School or Work

Do we need to have the type of lunchbox which keeps things cold or do you have access to a refrigerator during the day? It’s time to start off fall on the right foot by making healthy lunches and thinking ahead.
