Back to School Essentials for a Successful Year

It is that time of year and I have been thinking about everything my children will need for back to school. If you are like me, then you like to plan ahead. This year, with inflation at a record high, I have been thinking about the essentials without buying what we don't already have on hand. For example, both of my kids have very nice backpacks that have warranties, so I won't be buying new ones this year. I also have a variety of lunch boxes that they can choose from, so again I won't be buying them new ones. And with our school district no longer providing free lunches county wide, that money is allocated towards our grocery budget. But their feet are ever growing, so new shoes will be on the list.
You can think smart while still sending your children off to a successful school year.

Here are some of my favorite essentials but be smart!
