Lifestyle Expert Amy Sewell Shares Back to School Tips

While the first bus rides and homework assignments of the new school year are still a few weeks away, now is the time to start thinking about going back to school.

Lifestyle Expert Amy Sewell says backpacks are a form of expression, and right now, they’re on sale at Office Depot and OfficeMax stores. “Even if you don’t necessarily need one right now, it’s a great time to stock up and go ahead and have one on-hand for whenever you need it” she says.

August is also a great time to save money while stocking up on school supplies, such as notebooks, planners, pencil cases, and more. 

“For more kids, customizing the supplies is so important, and Office Depot has things like puffy stickers and pom-poms and charms and all those things that can really help you just kind of put your stamp on those things” Sewell says.

And for lunch – consider natural peanut butter and jellies, from Jif and Smucker’s, respectively.  “These are made with ingredients from natural sources, so Mom’s like them” says Sewell.  “But they just have that perfect amount of sweetness, you know, that’s makes the sandwich so delicious.”
