Back to School

Are you ready for “Back to School”?

August 27, 2014

It is that time of the year again…when we get everything organized and ready for back to school.  I cannot lie, although I love being able to take day trips and touring around with my daughter, it will be so nice to get back to routine!!!

Along with getting some shopping done, we also have to get back to some semblance of a schedule. Getting to bed earlier and getting up a lot earlier than has been happening this summer. That one will be the toughest for her. High School starts a lot earlier and then there is the 7 am orchestra.  So this last couple of weeks we have been trying… so far not so good.  Hopefully, by next week she will have it covered!

At least we have the shopping end covered.  There are some great items out there for back to school… We were invited to a  back to school event a few weeks ago with Acco Brands- so many great backpacks and accessories for all ages. There were some adorable notebooks and covers for the younger crowd as well as some hip and colourful ones for the teens.

They also had a lovely Nate Berkus line showcasing some fabulous items that I need for my home office. :).

But the products that stood out  the most for me were ones launched by  Me to We Staples, and ACCO Brands . These are Me to We’s first line of eco-friendly school supplies with a global  impact. The Free the Children “Me to We ” line directly helps thousands of children overseas receive access to education. For example : the backpacks are all made from recycled materials and the sale of each one provides a student with school supplies for one year. I love that!  And what is better than your child enjoying their lunch from their cool lunch bag than a child in a developing country being provided a healthy lunch as well? And the best thing…you can track where your purchase has made an impact, how cool is that? As a part of Me to We’s Track Your Impact initiative, all products come with a unique eight-digit code for buyers to track exactly where their purchase gives a life-changing gift.

We are in need of a new lunch bag, so we will be picking one  up as well as a few other things.  🙂 Love knowing that it makes a difference in someone’s life!


So head on over to the Me to We  and shop from the comfort of your own home or drop by your neighbouring Staples Canada,who has partnered with Me to We on this great initiative.

What are you looking forward to the most this back to school season?
