{10 on the 10th // 10 back to school must haves}




This month's theme for the 10 on the 10th link-up party is 10 Back to School Must Haves. When I was younger I used to love back to school shopping and now I love to do it for Mason. Mason wears uniforms to school so shopping for clothes isn't so exciting. However, he can where whatever shoes he wants as well as any backpack or lunchbox. I let him pick those out on his own.

For uniforms we love the Cat and Jack line at Target. They are so soft and they are cuter than most other uniforms we have found. I also always buy him a pair of the Cat and Jack slides. They are so easy to throw on in the mornings and they have no laces!

Backpack & Lunch box - Mason is getting the Minecraft versions at Target this year. He's a little Minecraft obsessed right now.

I also like to get a bento type box for Mason's lunches. They don't have much time for lunch as it is so I don't want him wasting it trying to open all of the packages. And a thermos to keep his drink cold until lunch.

A calendar is also a must have for me when school starts back. There are so many things to remember from homework, field trips. events at school. award programs, concept days, projects, PTO events, etc. I normally keep one calendar on the refrigerator and then in my phone and paper planner. There is too much to remember throughout the school year.

What are your back to school must haves?

  2. All great back to school must haves. My mil just bought Cam a new backpack. I told her he didn't need a new one, but she was determined. He's thrilled so that's all that matters.

  7. Don't you just love Cat & Jack?? They have THE BEST stuff. I just posted a pair of shoes in my Insta stories that I wanted to get for Olivia. Everything is really good quality and they hold up well.

  8. Ughhh does wine count??? I have a huge desk calendar I hang on the fridge but maybe a hand held calendar might be wise for me. I lose my mind with all the activities!!

  9. Oh I love Target and they are having such good sales on their uniforms and basics right now. They are hard to beat and I think that Cat and Jack line washes up great for the price! Thanks for linking up. xoxo ERIN

  10. I hadn't heard of Bento boxes before this year and all these back to school posts! I don't think we need a big one yet, but they look awesome!

  11. I love the idea of a bento box at lunch! That will save a ton of time -- those lunches go by quickly. It will create less waste too! I've been thinking of getting something like that for myself even.
