I am excited for school to start. I’ll be honest. The twins start JK is this year and this will be the first time in 8 1/2 years I’ll have quiet days to myself. I have big ambitions for myself. From losing to weight to being the ultimate domestic goddess, hahaha. I’ll have time to really clean, work out in peace and cook even more.
So with all three kiddo’s in school, I’ve had lots of fun shopping on Amazon.ca for all our back to school supplies such as back packs, pencil cases, new lunch boxes and everything in between. So, if you need some product inspiration. Look no further! If you’d like to be a little greener here are some tips: Reuse, Upcycle, Trade up with other parents back and remember, don’t idle your car for school pick up. Thankfully school supplies today have come a long way and you can find lots of earth friendly and kid friendly school supplies that don’t break the bank.
You’ll be able to reuse some of these items for next year(given that the kids don’t lose it) but reusing is one of the best ways to be green and up cycling.
