Mom Must-Haves :: August 2017 Back-To-School For Moms

0

It feels like just yesterday we were creating our Summer Bucket Lists (more like Summer Survival Guides) and now within the blink of an eye it’s time to start preparing for Back-To-School. 

Ready or not, school season is a mere weeks away. City Moms Blog Network wants to ensure all you moms out there have what you need to make it through early alarm clocks, bus stop drop-offs, packing lunches and just keeping it all together!

We’ve compile our list of Back-To-School Must-Haves just for MOMS!

 

FEATURED BRAND :: LE CREUSET NONSTICK BRAISER

Now here’s two words moms everywhere love (or at least when it comes to kitchen tools), non-stick and dishwasher-safe! The Le Creuset Non-Stick Braiser not only provides a non-stick surface, but that surface is also free of harmful chemicals and will never chip or flake. We call that a win-win! Oh, and did we mention it’s a GORGEOUS pan? Let’s just hope the food tastes as good as this pan looks! 

And here’s a little cooking 101 lesson for you: Braising is using both wet and dry heats to break down tough cuts of meat or to tenderize fresh vegetables.

THE DAY DESIGNER DAILY PLANNER

We go all deer-in-headlights those first couple weeks of school as the paperwork starts flooding in with important dates, no school days, PTA meetings, and the list goes on. It is SO important to have a central place to organize what child needs to be doing what, where and when. For this reason, we LOVE this Daily Planner from The Day Designer. It allows you to organize your day, week, month and even year all in one place.

YUMBOX BENTO LUNCH BOX

You might be thinking, “Why is there a lunch box on a list that’s supposed to be for me?” Trust us when we tell you, this just isn’t any lunch box and it will restore your faith in the whole cold lunch concept! The Bento Lunch Box from YumBox has reinvented the lunch packing game. With multiple compartments, all you need to do is fill each section with one of the major food groups, close the lid and viola! Lunch is done! No more messing with baggies or little containers that always go missing!

BASEBALL HATS

Mom hair, don’t care! However, your child might not appreciate your ability to go 5 days without washing your hair as much as you do. This is where a baseball cap comes in handy to hide your messy mane. Try these simple, yet stylish baseball caps from Lulu’s and your child can thank us later for helping tame your tresses (at least long enough for school drop-off)! Looking for more styles, we also love these patchwork hats and these floral print hats too!

CORKCICLE TRAVEL COFFEE TUMBLER

No more lukewarm coffee for mom in the morning! This Corkcicle Travel Coffee Tumbler keeps your java hot, not warm, HOT for up to 3 hours, which is about how long it takes to convince your kids to wear matching socks. Plus, it’s easy to take-and-go design is a bus stop/carpool line necessity! 

ARTKIVE KIDS' ARTWORK APP

Soon your fridge, counter, desk or any free corner of your home will be consumed with every worksheet, art project or doodle your child masterfully creates through their school day. Save yourself from trying to explain to your child why their masterpiece is in the trash can, by downloading Artkive!  This app allows you to create profiles for each child, save artwork and even create printed books featuring your child’s art (um, hello holiday gift idea for grandparents)!

LOOPYCASES PHONE HOLDER

Between juggling backpacks, lunch boxes, shoe box dioramas, cell phones, coffee and children, cracked phone screens are bound to happen. This is where LoopyCases, quite literally saves the day. Easily carry all.the.things without the threat of dropping your phone. Bonus features are the loop turns into a kick-stand for hands-free viewing, not to mention you can up your selfie game by securely getting new angles!
