Stress less and be prepared for Back-to-School: Top 5 Must-Haves for Parents!

Family Organizer: I have used the More Time Moms calendar ever since my kids were in preschool and I still use it to this day. This family planner has the biggest squares to give you plenty of room to write, the best stickers to remind you of important events, and a pocket for bills and loose paperwork. I love it!

Leak-Proof Food Containers: Okay, this is technically for the “kids” but unless you like cleaning spilled lunch juices from a lunch box I beg to differ! The “Fit & Fresh” leak-proof 2-cup chilled containers are just the right size for pasta salad or kid friendly veggies. Feel good knowing your child’s food is kept fresh and yummy and better yet, no cleaning up lunch box spills!

Life360 APP:  This location sharing app will help put parents’ minds at ease. Life360 shares the locations of everyone in a private circle, letting parents know if their child made it home from school or arrived safely at soccer practice. The app also allows for easy private messaging, ensuring everyone is keeping each other informed of their plans. Life360 is free for iOS, Android and Windows Phone users.

One Great Bag: Get instant style with a great handbag or tote. Let’s face it, you’re always toting plenty. Splurge on something you love, or get something fun, current, and inexpensive. Get organized with zip pouches that keep things tidy and mobile so you can switch it up depending on the needs of the day.

A Travel Cup: Chances are your favorite traveling cup is broken, leaky, or lost. Considering the amount of time many of us spend in our cars or public transportation, or at the orthodontist’s office, moms and dads deserve the small luxury of a great travel cup.
