Five things to buy for a more organized school year

This post contains affiliate links.

My children went back to school this week. I myself go back to school this week. We have established a pretty good routine, but as always, we will need to readjust once I start back to work next week. Here are five products that make our lives run a little smoother during back-to-school season.


1. Bentgo classic Bento lunch container

I own five of these and they’ve been a game changer for my school lunches. My children and I all use them. Meal prep on Sunday nights and toss them in the fridge. Then, each evening, just slide your pre-packed lunch into your lunch bag. I love that it includes a utensil set. You can find them here for $14.99.

2. Hydroflask 24 oz water bottle


My kids and I are all very active and our oldest is beginning to play sports. These 24 oz water bottles help us to stay hydrated. Get yours here.

3. Flair pens!!


I catch a lot of ridicule for continuing to use a paper planner, since most people use the calendar on their phone. I not only use a paper calendar, but I also love color coding it with these colorful flair pens. Try it- it’s fun.

4. Prayer and devotional planner


This is not the exact planner I use, but it is very similar. I try to make Bible based devotions and prayer a part of everyday. Using a prayer journal/planner combination has made this easier. You can get this one and a few that are similar here.

5. Big capacity pencil organizer


This pencil pouch is not very big, but it can surely hold a lot. I bought my oldest a purple one last year and she could easily fit earbuds, colored pencils, pencils, highlighters, erasers, and pens…with a little room left over. I bought one for myself recently. You can get one here.

I hope you have enjoyed this list of back-to-school products. What are your go-to products for streamlining your back-to-school transition?
