5 New Back-to-School Necessities and Giveaway!!

Wow!  How is summer already over?!  I have been having lots of fun the past month with the family and now its time to get back to a routine, especially as Allie will be in 1st grade this year and starting earlier in the morning!  I am a little nervous to have to pack her a lunch and have her gone the whole day, but I know she will love it and it will be awesome!  I have a few new products I have tried and thought would be helpful for back-to-school schedules...

 Before (back)                                                             After (front)

You can buy at your local Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Kroger, Publix and many other grocery, drug, and mass retailers.  See more about it here
