Summer has flown by so quickly and I can’t believe that just around the corner school is about to begin. One of Kora’s (and if you catch him on the right day, Logan’s) favorite things to do this time of year is back-to-school shopping.
It’s always fun to see their excitement as they pick out their new backpacks, lunchboxes, folder, pens, and more. Every August as they look over their school supplies list they both declare that they are going to be more organized this year. I remember doing that too. It can be a challenge as you get older to keep all the different subjects, homework assignments, and after school activities straight.
That’s why I’m excited that Amazon sent a Happy School Year kit full of must-haves and to share with you info about Amazon’s Happy School Year Storefront.
This storefront is awesome because it makes back-to-school shopping a breeze. There’s no running around from store to store finding out what your kids need is out of stock. How frustrating and time-consuming is that?!
It’s all right in front of you in just a few clicks of your mouse. I also love that, Amazon likes to think of the new school year as sort of a “New Year’s Eve” for kids – it’s full of excitement and energy but is also a great time to reboot and refresh and even set “School Year Resolutions” for the year ahead.
I was inspired by this and asked the kids what their School Year Resolutions were and, not surprisingly, they both said, “to stay more organized!” Every year this seems to get more and more difficult as they get older but I was thrilled to see many items on the Amazon Happy School Year Storefront that can help with that.
Here are some of our favorites:
This Dated Middle or High School Planner is a must-have for any student who wants to stay on top of things this year. Not only does it help to keep track of homework, events, and more but it comes with a bookmark and stickers to make staying organized just a bit more fun.
Papermate Retractable Ballpoint Pens in assorted colors is the perfect way to stay organized. To do lists can be written in a variety of colors, each school subject can have its own color, the list is endless. These pens offer a simple and colorful way to stay organized this school year.
These Multicolor 2 Pocket Folders are an easy way to keep papers for each subject where they belong. Kids can put these folders into their backpacks, lockers, or desks, and then quickly grab the one they need for the class they are about to walk into.

The Texas Instruments TI-73 Graphing Calculator or some version of it, is on the school supplies list for most students in middle school on up. It’s a necessity to keep up in math class these days and it’s even permitted for use on the PSAT and SAT as well as on AP exams. The large screen makes it easy to read and it even comes with flash technology for upgrading in the future.
