The Back to School Supply List Your Child Didn’t Bring Home

It’s getting darker earlier, the mornings are still cool and the aisles of our favorite superstores are no longer lined with sun tan lotions and beach bags but the endless supply of ball point pens and Hannah Montana notebooks. I remember getting my school supply list along with my teacher assignment and being more excited to color code my notebooks to my planner than anything else. Although sending your kid off to school with the tools for a successful year is important, creating a space for them to feel inspired, stimulated and comfortable is essential. And hey, it might even give you a few extra moments to yourself. Here at The Well Appointed house, we put together a list of at home school supplies!
