Although I put the kids' names on all their stuff, I still like backpacks (for the older kids) that stand out so they don’t get mixed up with the other kids’ stuff.

My kids like warm food for lunch so I buy these Thermos containers when I want to send the kids to school with hot food. They really do work.

The little ones want to fill their backpacks with fun items like crayons and pencil holders, so a collapsible lunch container is perfect for only taking up a limited amount of space.

An animated lunch bag is a cute take on a classic back-to-school must-have.

I love this container for storing soup lunches in. It keeps things hot throughout the day and the carry handle makes it easy for the kids to hold securely.

Fall brings a drastic weather change so we always start back with new rain boots, coats and umbrellas. Love these bright blue boots for my littlest one.

Cooler evenings for the kids call for a good hoodie.

Get the kids some funky fleece pajamas that they're excited to wear. It makes the transition from summer to fall attire that much easier.

I like to store the kids' extra clothes in these super cute printed bins that double up as great room decor.

Out with the old, in with the new. Time to pack up the warm weather clothes to make room for all the kids' new dress-to-impress duds. I pack up these bins and put them in the basement until spring creeps around again.

When fall comes around, so do the heavier shoes and boots. This rack will keep my foyer organized and less messy.

Back to school means more library books, more papers—more everything. I need this bookshelf for all the kids' new books. I’ll also put a few baskets into it to grab all the loose papers that end up on the piano and floor.
