It really is unbelievable how fast the summer goes!  It is probably the season that seems to fly by the most!  We are enjoying days at the pool and park and summer treats and bam it is time for back to school!  It can really overwhelm us and when we have multiple children of different ages the tasks of preparing supply lists, clothes, and lunches can seem almost too much!  I love when I can find products that help me not be so overwhelmed with it all!  That is why I am so glad I have Ziploc® brand products to help me conquer back to school!  If you are only using Ziploc® brand products for food storage you are really missing out on some great organizational tools!

ziploc41 We are homeschoolers, but like many of our friends and family who prepare for back to school with traditional school, we also do back to school!  As a matter of fact we often have co-op classes in other places and have to have our own school areas organized or we are frazzled and not at our best!  I love to put together back to school supply buckets for my kids!  I have three children!  One in primary grades, one in middle grades and even a high schooler!  They are all in different stages and need different supplies for their studies!

This is why I love Ziploc® brand for back to school.  I was able to make a variety of sizes for a variety of things!  I started with Ziploc® brand Containers with One Press Seal because I love the size!  I also love that you can seal the lid very easily and it doesn’t come off until you want it to! It is easy for all ages and even little hands to maneuver and it keeps their supplies shut tight if they accidentally drop it! It is great for space saving also and they stack on top of each other easily! They make the perfect crayon box!

The bags are also perfect for storing and organizing just about anything. You can use them to store meat, seafood, or poultry in the fridge or use them to pack sandwiches, pizza slices, subs, cookies, carrots, chips, and more!  They are perfect for grab and go snacking!


I love to have all their supplies at the table with a fresh doughnuts and milk/juice for their first day!  It is the only day we have this breakfast so it is a real treat!  I put their name on each box/bag with a sticky note!  You can also use sticky name tags (they would probably stick better)

While I was doing my grocery shopping at Kroger, I picked up all my Ziploc® brand Storage Bags with Easy Open Tabs® and Ziploc® brand Containers with One Press Seal in the aisle with plastic bags and paper plates.  I love Kroger and you can do all your back to school shopping there!
