By Djridings @fivethingsnow

September is a month away and you know what that means. Its time to start shopping for back-to-school items for your kids. It can be stressful with all the supplies required and where to get them. This time of year can be hectic with crowded stores, concerns about what brand to get, and wondering if you’re going to get everything done in time. But don’t worry, we have a list of five tools that will make life and preparing for school easier.

A three-ring binder

To keep folders, homework, notes, and other paperwork in, a three-ring binder is essential for keeping schoolwork organized and in one place. You might need more than one for kids, depending on coursework and the amount of material. Be sure to stock with dividers to aid in organization.

Pencils and pens

All students need writing utensils. Whatever grade they are in, they will benefit from having pencils and older students can use pens. This is the one back to school item that is guaranteed to get a lot of use. It seems like there are never enough pens or pencils to go around and kids always need more. Be sure to stock up and you’ll stress less.

Ink cartridge refill

An ink cartridge refill is vital for printing out homework, book reports, and any information that parents and students need for school. Getting this ahead of time will save stress and energy, not to mention a headache or two! Don’t forget to pick up printer paper as well; it runs out too.


For all grades, whether composition or spiral bound, students need something to write in. This is another item your sure to get use out of. Having enough paper and being prepared for class makes all the difference in a kid’s day. It would be wise to make sure that if it is spiral bound, the paper is perforated for easy tear out.

A good backpack

Having a good, sturdy backpack is important not only to store school supplies, but for a students posture. The better quality and more supportive a backpack is, the less likely they will suffer from back pain. It should be strong enough to carry all school items.

So there are five essential items to get for back to school. There are many other supplies of course, but these are five staples that you can’t go without. Get them now and save time and stress.
