Back to school shopping as a mom of all girls means we are in constant motion to find the cutest, the hippest, the brightest, and the sparkliest shoes, clothing, and gear stores have to offer. As a self-proclaimed “dress yourself to express yourself” mom, my girls often look like they spent some time in a Frozen-themed glitter factory. And most days, I don’t mind that. But this is the first year that everyone will be in some type of “school” (big kid school and preschool), and I feel like I need to step up my game in the back to school arena. Don’t get me wrong – they will still be rocking dinosaur dresses and cowgirl boots with a bright pink backpack – but at least they will have some of the coolest gear around.

Just because the holidays are (almost) over, doesn’t mean the greeting cards have to stop! Getting a card from a friend or loved one is one of life’s greatest pleasures — and we are crazy for these fun greetings from PopCards.
Children, whether infants or teenagers, are always learning. As parents, we all want to give our children every opportunity we can to explore, create, and expand their minds. The holidays are a time for fun, and we know that learning should be fun as well. Give gifts to the children in your life that encourage learning. There are so many amazing products for kids that spark their imagination and foster a love for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). We think gifts like these are especially great to give to someone else’s child because not only will the child get so much out of whatever you choose, the parents will be happy with you as well. Everyone is happy and kids are learning while they play. These gifts are a win all around!
Our cell phone is like an extra appendage. It’s the one thing that can leave you feeling incomplete if you leave the house without it and unconnected from the world if you happen to lose it. While it seems silly to place so much emphasis on a piece of technology, we consistently dish out over a hundred dollars a month on a phone that has all the bells and whistles, to include an always increasing contract. Even though we couldn’t fathom ditching our phones anytime soon, there are a few ways to ditch the high dollar signs.
