Back to School Supply Review
OH…the dreaded Back to School Supply lists. If you haven’t picked your up yet, you should be able to find them at any of the local supply stores or Walmart. These lists, while intending to make it easier for your student to jump in on day one are not always the best selections for your child.
Take simple pencil holders for example. The flip top style never worked for my crew. They either were too large or the didn’t stay closed; but the results were the same. They were not used. I have found a pencil holder that I really like and one that holds up to daily use. It is the Slider Pencil Case from JamPaper.
My favorite things about the slider pencil case are noted above. This is one sturdy little item! The snap closure keeps things contained. The slider keeps the kids from losing the top or dropping it and the slider stopper is simply wonderful for those little hands that struggle with small parts.
Other items from Jam Paper that I have tried are their Heavy Duty Folders and the Binder Envelopes.
Report folders are usually thin and flimsy. Not so with these. I was able to place a writing tablet inside and still have room for others papers.
The Binder Envelopes are the greatest things to put in your notebook. Not only can you shove homework or handouts in them, they have a Velcro closure so the papers actually stay put!
Jam Paper is a family owned and operated business for over 55 years. Ordering from them is simple and they have an amazingly quick turn around for shipment of product.
I will be using their products in the future. They hold up well, come in crazy colors and are quick to respond to any customer service issues or questions.
To purchase from them, please visit their online store at JAMPaper.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Back to school is here. We search for bargains in the ads and clip coupons. You can find some really good deals on paper, pens, pencils, tape, white out, glue… We don’t need them for back to school but these are common household items and we stock up when there’s a good sale. Durability and useful are two musts when shopping for back to school.
Thanks for the tip, I hate wasting money on supplies my kids wont use. They would like this pencil case.

I know at back to school shopping you have to search and drive around for bargins but the convience of online shopping might be worth it if you could find free shipping.
