Chances are you have received a list of some sort for all your school supplies. My daughter had a page-long list, while I only had to purchase 3 items for my second grader. The only thing we have left to shop for is clothing before school starts next Tuesday. Less than a week until it’s back to the grind. While I’m sad to say goodbye to summer, it’s time.
One of my favorite things about back to school season is the shopping. Surprising, I know. We found a few items you may not know about and wanted to share. Some of these finds surprised us. Highlighters that can be erased?! Games that are both fun and educational? Read on for all the details.
If you've ever attended a fancy brunch, you may have enjoyed watermelon juice. It is so delicious! Now you can enjoy it at home, and on the go. This 8 1/2 ounce bottle is the perfect size and shape for lunchboxes and you can feel great about giving your kids a 100% organic cold-pressed juice with no added sugar, artificial ingredients, or artificial colorings. Available in two varieties: Watermelon Cucumber Basil is a delightfully cool concoction of real Watermelon Lemon Cayenne, both 100 calories or under! Buy Wonder Melon here

This set of six bold and bright colored and double-ended highlighters lets you highlight all the important things in your notes and textbooks with one end and lets you erase any mistakes using the other end!

Ooly notebooks and pencil pouch
We love Ooly for school supplies, especially this On the Go Zipper Pencil Pouch with an elasticized strap for attaching your pencil case to almost any notebook. This double-sided notebook is pretty cool too. One side features lined pages and flip the book over for blank sheets for sketching. Buy the pencil pouch here and the Flipside notebook here
trücup low-acid coffee
For all the moms and dads, and older students, trücup low-acid coffee will keep you running without all of the acid that can upset our stomachs. Most low-acid coffees don't taste quite the same as the original but we are pleased with the flavor of this bold roast. Plus, the single serve cups are compostable! Buy trücup low-acid coffee here
Because the beginning of the school year is when you buy the teacher a gift! I love that it's a set of 3 so you can stretch your dollar further by separating out to several teachers. Buy the teacher planters here.
What’s on your back to school shopping list?

I love school supplies! Liam is in preschool so we dont need them yet but I cant wait!
We homeschool with one who attends online charter school as well, so no school supply lists this year. It will be our first year homeschooling two of the kids, so we’ll have to use your list of ideas to help us make it through our year of schooling at home.
