The days are starting to cool a bit and we’re spending these last days of summer enjoying what’s left. But, while we’re playing a lot, we’re also getting everything ready so that Sofia’s first day as a 1st grader goes without a hitch. For me that means get everything up and ready not just for day one, but through Christmas break. It may have been
sixteen years, my god I’m old a few years since I last graced the public school halls as a student, but I do remember wanting to have stylish and fun supplies to doodle with while passing notes taking notes in class. Sofia, is no different, in fact… she’s way pickier than I ever was.
Her look is fun, sassy and has a pizzazz that matches her bubbly personality…and why shouldn’t she get something that matches her? The problem is getting that style on a budget and, in one place, so that I don’t have to run all over L.A. piecing items together while cursing the 405 or the 5 or the 101 or …. well, you get it. Imagine my surprise when I saw the most stylish school supplies sitting at Office Depot. Yes, Office Depot- the new Back to School hot spot! It’s not just for suits anymore. From glitter to animal prints, polka dots and more, Office Depot had everything I needed and more.
Plus… budget friendly? Oh yea. With prices as low as $.50 cents (yes, Fifty Cents!), Office Depot has selections for every budget. You can even save enough to splurge on some back to school furniture. We recently got a “family” computer and I decided to create a sort of learning center for Sofia to use this year. She’s been using the computer more lately (supervised, of course) and I needed a better work space, so when I looked at all the furniture Office Depot offers, I was amazed to see their big selection for my price range. We settled on the amazing desk above (which is only $100 right now!) and added the hutch for storage space. As you can see… all our supplies fit like a charm and I put up some of her artwork to inspire her while doing workbooks or some writing exercises.
Education is the key to a child’s future, the right supplies can made a difference between a great scholastic year and just an OK one. Head to Office Depot and make sure your child has a great school year with the hottest school supplies around.
