Have you started your back to school shopping yet? We have! The kids love to go shopping for new pencils, paper, notebooks, scissors, markers and more! And truth be told…I do too! There’s just something about getting all new “gear” that gets you excited and ready for a new school year. But, it’s a lot of work! Getting those lists and hitting the aisles is a tad stressful in a sea of people. And it’s even more stressful if you’re shopping for more than one child. This year I was shopping for THREE! Yes. Three of my kids – Ella is starting fourth grade; Andrew is starting second grade; and Sydney is going to be in her first year of preschool! How in the world did that happen?!


So, what do you do when you have three kids to shop with and you need to keep your sanity? Head to Office Max!

The reason I love to go to Office Max for our school supplies is because they have everything right there for you to grab AND they have Office Max Brand of supplies that will save you money! How cute are these folders??!!

Ella LOVED these stylish school supplies and I loved that they were affordable and a quality product. From pencils to post-its, there’s an Office Max Brand that has you covered!

We had big lists to shop for this year, so I just gave each of the big kids a cart, their class list, and sent  them on their way! Of course, my husband and I buddied up with each one and made sure they were getting what they needed on their list. But, it was a lot of fun to see them really taking an interest in prices and what items they needed. And I was thankful for the help!
