It's crazy to think that school is starting soon. Believe it or not, my boys start next week! One minute it’s summer break and the next I am thinking about shopping for new clothes and school supplies.
With two boys in elementary school, we have a big list of supplies to purchase. There are things like crayons, markers, paper, pencils, hand sanitizer and my ally to help control the back-to-school chaos: Ziploc® brand bags and containers. Yes, at my house Ziploc® brand items are used on a daily basis and are a very important part of the school year. Even my boys' teachers have them on their supply lists, so I'll happily grab a few boxes to donate to the classroom.
Both of my boys always have a Ziploc® brand bag in their backpack with enough change to purchase a water, milk or the occasional ice cream as a treat. I simply use a permanent marker to write their name on the bag, and it gets tucked in their backpack.
New Ziploc® brand bags with Easy Open Tabs, with added tab makes the bags easy to grip and open, make it easy for my boys to access their money when they need it.
You guys know I am an organization junkie, so I use Ziploc® brand containers with One Press Seal to hold just about everything. Life is just easier when everything has a “home”. Broken crayons get stored in a container, glue sticks in another, and paint in a separate container. One of my favorite features about Ziploc® brand containers with One Press Seal is that they are designed to be nested within each other when empty and stacked when full, saving valuable storage space.

Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing some more of my favorite ways to use Ziploc® brand products including how adding labels to containers can encourage your kids to keep their art supplies neat and tidy. It’s a great way to foster independence and helps them learn a little responsibility. It’s been a great thing for my little mess-makers!
But for now, I am going to give two readers the chance to go back to school with Ziploc® brand by giving each winner a $50 Publix gift card PLUS a big Ziploc® brand prize pack (approximate retail value $50).
