My kids just started back to school and what was the first thing my daughter said when she came home the first day?
Can you take me to Staples because EVERYONE has this really cool mechanical pencil and these eraser things on the end!! I NEED one because EVERYONE in my class has one.
Uuummm….no. I’m not taking you to buy a mechanical pencil just because everyone else has one…but I do buy nearly all their school supplies at Staples! They have some of the trendiest and best quality products around.
When I was given the opportunity to check out some of Staples coolest products for back-to-school, I couldn’t say no. I mean, I love office supplies anyway. Don’t just me. I love cool little things for my desk and I think I have a slight addiction to notebooks.
When I received my box of goodies, it couldn’t have been at a better time! We were just checking lists for school supplies and these were SO cool. The kids were fighting over which ones each wanted! Here’s our favorites:
- Better Binder – This is the seriously the best binder I’ve ever seen. The plastic case is nice and thick, so it’s sturdy and can take a beating. To open the inside you can’t just pull them apart, you have to press a little lever. This is so nice so you are sure you won’t be losing important papers.
- Neon Tube Pencil Pouch – My daughter loves this. The bright blue is eye catching and her favorite color. I like that it’s quilted, so everything inside is protected a little more than a normal pencil bag.
- Studio C Neon Zip It – This little notebook is too cute. Yes, I’m addicted to notebooks, but this one gets extra points because it’s a pretty blue and it has a pouch to hold whatever you need.
- Staples Clear Poly Arc Notebook – This is the COOLEST. First off, I love that it doesn’t have an annoying metal spiral. It has little disks that hold the papers in, so no getting caught on things or getting smashed. It comes with different patterned papers that you can you easily change out your cover to match your style.
Staples is the perfect place to get the coolest school supplies. Don’t forget to check their ad in the newspaper every weekend, too. They always have really awesome back-to-school sales!
