Another year of education is due to kick off so it’s time to get organized with all the back-to-school essentials again. There are so many things to make sure to remember for back to school, sometimes it’s easy to forget a thing or two.
As you prepare to go back to school, there are some items that are an absolute necessity below are the things that you should not forget to always put in your backpack. Below are the things you should remember to not forget to put in your backpack for school.
- Hand sanitizer
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, I still kept a travel-sized bottle of hand sanitizer with me while I was on campus, especially when I ate in dining halls. Now, it’s a must-have. Grab this multipack and share it with your friends (the hand sanitizer, not germs).
- A compact notebook
Even in a digital world, where you’ve probably already spent a lot of money on a laptop in your Texas Apartment, you’ll likely need a piece of paper at some point. Grab that spare notebook you’ve had for years but never used or treat yourself to a new, fun one. Throw in a pencil and pen while you’re at it too.
- A good reusable water bottle
It’s so important to keep your kids hydrated throughout the day. And most teachers will allow kids to keep a water bottle in their cubby or locker.
- Writing Materials
Everyone loves stationery, well, just about everyone. Nowadays you don’t have to contend with traditional pencil and eraser designs. Pens and pencils are a staple of school supply lists everywhere!
- A folding umbrella
Literally getting caught in the rain, while running late to class, miserable and wet, is just not part of the ideal college experience. Stick an umbrella in the outside pouch of your backpack, and watch with superiority (and dry clothes) during the first flash rainstorm of the semester.
With the start of a new school year just around the corner, now is the ideal time to remind your children about how they can stay safe when walking, biking, taking the bus, or riding in a carpool. Make sure your children are safe and prepared to travel to school, regardless of how they get there. These five-pointers will get you started.
