I received a promotional item in exchange for my review. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.
With the new school year only about three weeks away here in New Jersey, my daughters and I have been scrambling to get ready for the fall and back to school! My kids need notebooks for all their classes, and we could use planners, calendars and labels, too, to get ourselves prepped for the hectic school year!
I was invited to check out the Back to School Shop at Minted.com. I love all the beautiful back to school gear they have, and it can all be customized!
The first thing I checked out are Minted.com’s school calendars! The calendars come in lots of styles and can be personalized. Every year I love to make a custom school year calendar for my family. Our school district doesn’t send school calendars home anymore. So, every summer before the school year starts, I go to our school district’s website, note the important school dates and use them to make my own custom photo calendar for my family! The calendars are a great way to keep our dates straight and to remember fun times from the previous school year!
My daughters and I also like to use planners — I carry one in my purse, and they keep planners in their backpacks. Minted has all sorts of planners. This design reminds me of the pink and coral colors in one of my daughters’ rooms, so I know she’d love it!
These planners can also be customized as journals, too, which my daughters would love — they are writers and are bloggers, too! (They blog at Fun-4-Kidz.blogspot.com. )
As twins and close sisters who share many of the same activities and interests, my daughters could use some of Minted’s name labels to identify their stuff! (Sometimes it’s hard to tell whose stuff is whose!) My kids could customize their labels and label their lunch bags, water bottles, flute cases, gym bags, etc.
With all the wonderful stuff at Minted.com, getting ready for the school year can be less stressful and more fun! (I am one of those moms who loves school supplies and stationary!)
