10 Cool Back To School Supplies For Moms Because I’m Sick Of Shopping For My Kids

By  | 

I LOVE school supplies. There is just something so exciting about brand new pencils and fresh notebooks and the start of a new school year. But why should kids have all the fun? At the start of every school year I decide that this is the year I’m going to be super organized and color code all of my kid’s assignments and always have stationary at the ready to pen notes to teachers and sign permission slips, and even though this plan doesn’t last through October I love the optimism behind it. And because this is for sure the year that I will get all organ-a-zized I have been looking for cool products to help me achieve this. The best part? If your kids try and steal them you will know they are yours.

Pencils. But Not Just Any Pencils. Mean Girls Pencils.

I’d probably wear this for a while until my kid remarked how cool it is and then give it to her. Maybe.

I never ever have a pen when I need one, but at least if my kids steal these they won’t be confused with boring old ballpoint pens. From Nordstrom.
