Life gets busy and when back to school shopping comes around, it’s like a race to get the necessities.  But it’s nice to slow down and really check out some new items.  Back to school shopping should be an adventure, not an inconvenience.  So, let’s see what kind of items I came across this year.

Wemo Mini Wi-Fi Smart Plug

I have so much to keep up with these days, running to two different schools to pick up my kids, I’ll take any help I can get!  So, the Wemo Mini Smart Plug is a no-brainer for me.  It can control my lights and appliances from wherever I am. Wemo has my back.  I can set schedules and times. How convenient is that?

It’s a smart home accessory.  Just plug your Wemo Mini Smart Plug into the wall, download the free app, connect Wemo to your Wi-Fi.  It’s that easy!

Pure Growth Organics Animal Crackers, Organic White Cheddar Popcorn and Crispy Rice Squares

We are always looking for new, healthy, organic, kids snack for the park or lunchbox.  Pure Growth Organics has some really snacks that everyone can enjoy (me, hehe).

Who doesn’t like animal crackers?  They are best comfort food for mommies and their kids.

Pure Growth Organic has chocolate Mickey shaped animal crackers that are organic with no artificial flavors or colors. The kids ate them up!

The Pure Growth Organic White Cheddar Popcorn is really tasty!  I loved it and the kids loved it too.  It’s organic, gluten free, no artificial colors or flavors and has a kick of white cheddar that will make you want another bag…which is fine because they are only 90 calories! haha

Pure Growth Organic has these Crispy Rice Squares which are the healthy version of rice crispy treats.  They are vegan and gluten free.

I want my kids to eat healthy, organic, kids snacks so these are a great lunchbox solution. The problem is that they are addictive!

My favorite thing about the crispy rice squares is that they have brown rice!  Yummy, crispy rice squares with brown rice.  I like that, especially for the kids.

OOLY Mighty Zipper Pouch with Jumbo Brights Neon Colored Pencils, a 2-in-1 Flip Side Notebook, Yummy Yummy Scented Gel Pens and an OOLY eraser.

These items are not just great for back to school but my boys are creative, so, they love any fun art supplies they can get their hands on.  The Flipside Double Sided Notebook is genius. 

The Yummy Yummy Scented Gel Pens are so cute and smell so good, I keep checking the ink levels, lol.  I don’t want it to stop!  And the neon pencils are to die for!  The colors are so bright, pretty and different from the average colored pencil.

Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitizer

I hate having to reapply hand sanitizer!  But now more than ever, it is necessary.  So, we have a bottle in the kitchen, in my purse, and in my car.  It’s important to have it handy. 

Zoono GermFree24 Hand Sanitizer is an FDA-compliant water-based hand sanitizer that kills 99.99% of germs on contact and works for up to 24 hours. It’s environmentally friendly and doesn’t not rub off.  So, when the kids are outside running, playing and sweating it remains active on the skin’s surface anyway!  Even after washing your hands, it continues to work.

It’s available in a spray or foam.

Snip-its Tangy Apple 3-in-1 Conditioning Shampoo, Morning Miracle Mousse Styling Spray & Silly Slicker Ultimate Sculpting Gel

Both my boys have long hair so we are always styling it.  But we don’t do harsh chemicals and are always on the look out for natural, allergy-free products.  We tried the shampoo and it was a winner!  No burning eyes and delicious smelling hair!  Yea for Snip-its Haircuts for Kids!

The kids love using the spray too and it doesn’t make their hair sticky or hard to brush afterwards.

Snip-its products are available at Snip-its salons across the country.  Find your local salon by visiting www.snipits.com

Teal Duck Tape®

Everyone has heard of Duck Tape!  But I can honestly say that I didn’t know about all of its uses until I had kids.  Duck® brand just introduced a dedicated page to the Duck Tape® Makers™.  This is the best news ever because I need inspiration for projects with my boys!


We recently went to a craft event at a hardware store and they showed us how to do our very first craft with Duct Tape.  It was so much fun and totally inspired me to get on their website and do more!  We made pencil cases and the kids loved it!  So check out their site for new videos and projects.

We were thrilled to try some new products for our family.  Back to school can be overwhelming, especially when one is starting kindergarten.  Which items do you think you can’t live without?  I don’t think anyone in our family can agree on any one item!
