Back to School Time with Smead

I can't believe that summer is quickly coming to an end. Two weeks from today, my little one will officially be a first grader.

After experiencing our first year in school, I learned quite a few things. The first is that even kindergartners bring home a ridiculous amount of papers. And the second is that this momma really needs to work at being organized, or I will again be realizing we've "misplaced" permission slips or homework five minutes before we need to be at school. (Thank goodness we live 30 seconds from the school.)

Fortunately for me, Smead has a variety of products designed to help me get organized. Smead has been helping homes and offices get organized for over 100 years. They offer a huge variety of office supplies, some of which can be found at Office Depot, Staples, or Franklin Covey.

We recently received the new Stadium File and SuperTab Folders from Smead. The Stadium File has 12 tiered pockets, which allow easy access to files. The reinforced side gussets are heavy duty, so I can easily see the Stadium File lasting quite awhile on my desk. Plus, because it can hold 900+ sheets of paper, I can safely assume that it will help me keep our little one organized throughout the entire first grade.The SuperTab folders, which fit in any standard file drawer (or in the Stadium File), have tabs that are 90% larger than standard folders. This means that our labels (such as "return to school" or "work to save") can easily be read. No squinting and no scribbling in the world's smallest writing.Maybe with the new tools from Smead and our own homework station our back to school experience won't be quite so hectic this year. A momma can hope right?!

Products were provided for review, as well as a gift card to thank me for my time. All opinions are my own.
