My Amazon Finds #14 - back to school favorites

Hello, and welcome! It's been a while since I've shared one of these posts, but I'm back here today to show you some of the items I ordered for our back-to-school season.

A lot of materials will be reused from the last school year, and larger items (backpacks, lunch bags, etc) I already got locally. But some smaller items are actually cheaper bought online, and besides there are many more alternatives to choose from.

Now that the summer break is almost over and school is starting again soon, it's the perfect time to create a chores schedule for your kids (if you don't have one already) or to go back to the school year routines (if your kids were already on board with them).
