10 Back-to-School Essentials to Add to Your Shopping List Stat

One of the best parts of transitioning from summer to fall as a kid is going to get all of your back-to-school essentials. Who else remembers the joy of bringing their school list with them to the store only to choose from an assortment of pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks, Book Sox, etc.? These days, we happen to think there's an even larger assortment of school goodies to select from than ever before, meaning your child can express themself with every choice they make (and you can, too).

From basics like backpacks and pencils to lunchtime necessities like lunch boxes and reusable snack bags, there's so much to consider. (Plus, if you select the right items, they'll make your life easier, too.) We tapped some of the coolest moms we know to see what's on their back-to-school shopping list this year. Don't worry—there's still time for you to follow their lead. And we'll give you an A-plus for effort, too.
