Too Cool for Back to School.......

Our family has been in back to school mode for the past couple of weeks and we've come across some pretty cool things that I thought I would share with you. If your not shopping for Back to School, perhaps you can pick up a new lunch container or a colorful lunch bag for work?  Or maybe you want to perk up your desk with a colorful journal or some educational pencils.   Here's some of the cool stuff we found.

This Dakine Prom backpack is so colorful but not over the top.  The pattern is awesome and reminds me of neon tribal. The inside is really colorful as well and is padded for a laptop.  There are plenty of pockets including a side zip pocket for the water bottle. It's affordable, durable and stylish.  Backpack, check. Love it too?  Get it here from Sierra Trading Post.

Up next.... the lunch box.  I laugh when I see this because my girls have used this lunchbox since the first day of kindergarten.  They will be starting 6th grade next week. The philosophy behind this is simple.  There is simply WAYYYYYY to much trash being produced with school lunches. Not only do I detest plastic and plastic baggies, it's insane to see the amount of trash generated from school lunches.  These stainless lunch containers go into the dishwasher and are almost indestructable. This has by far been the best thing we've ever used for lunches when they don't need to be insulated.  These containers also come in other sizes and can be purchased at Pearl River.

Or, how about one of these fair trade colorful lunch bags made by One Mango Tree and can be purchased at World of Good.
How about those days when you just want to buy your lunch or go to the snack bar?   I love this sassy zippered money pouch from Pearl River.

Know It All Pencil Set.  Comes with it's own muslin pouch.  Perfect for student and teacher alike!  Get them at Reform School Rules.

Don't forget to pick out some fun and colorful journals. This journal  has a kitschy pattern that is bright and cheery.  This one is from Pearl River. 

How about some chic wallpaper for your locker?  These are locker sized sheets that have super strong magnets so they're super easy to put up and take down. 

What locker wouldn't be complete without the chandelier?  This chandelier runs on 3AAA batteries, is motion sensored and will hang effortlessly from your locker ceiling with super strong magnets.  Get this and the locker wallpaper plus many other accessories at Locker Lookz

Gone are the days when you got some new clothes, a new pair of shoes and the original and classic Pee-Chee folder.  What better way to express yourself and display your doodling skills than on a Pee-Chee folder? I digress....
