All those items you bought for your summer vacation to Disneyland? Turns out they can be used for simplifying and improving packing for school, be it your kid’s first day, or their 10th year. Here are some of our favorite little extras for any school bag.
Eagle Creek Pack-It™ Cubes and Sacs
Packing cubes can organize even the messiest backpack. The full cube is absolutely large enough for 8 ½ x 11 paper. Smaller ones can hold pens and pencils, electronics cords, or any other little necessities. They are available in many colors, so you could even color code your organizing!
GoTubbs by Humangear®
Perfect for all those little bits and pieces that end up floating around a backpack, from earbuds to paper clips and pencil lead. They’re easy to label, too, for that extra organizational goal star!
This ingenious little system secures extra belongings to any bag, so instead of carrying their coat, or shoving it in their backpack to take up needed space, they can just clip it to their bag or backpack.
If you’ve been traveling (or living with a cell phone at all) you know how hard it can be to find an outlet. So to avoid any “my phone died” issues, send them to school with a fully charged power bank as battery backup.
