Momma Told Me: Back To School is a season we must all prepare for.

The West Coast tends to return to school later in the Summer than those states more Central and East Coast; our cousins in Oregon still have one more week of vacation, believe it or not. And, while Sabrina (11) started middle school this week, her teacher will inevitably send home the dreaded 'grade' supplies list over the weekend. You know the list, it often has protractors, special calculators, specific gauge ink pens, and the preferred type of glue for that 'sugar cube' model the kids will be building mid-year.
These things aren't an immediate need, and thankfully so, because walking into our local Walmart anytime soon would result in a panic attack. Don't get me wrong folks, I love 'the Mart,' but stepping foot in the seasonal aisle at peak season requires a security tether and emergency escape plan. Then there's the fact that finding a variety of 'fashionable' items in any one given category, we'll say notebook folders, seems to evoke a quest equal to locating the Sauron's 20 Rings Of Power (a little Lod OF the Rings nerd reference for you.) Let's just say by the time I pulled out the two Lisa Frank designs from the spiral bound notebooks I desperately wished I was back in The Shire.

Thankfully the internet has made it easier than ever to sort through practical school and office supply options, and even save through direct ordering with companies such as Penny Wise Office. You may recall, Penny Wise has a variety of stylish and practical supplies for everything from the work office to your everyday stationary needs (and even some adorable tape dispensers and Breast Cancer Awareness tools too!) While the website can be a bit tricky to navigate, if you don't know what you're looking for, you can request a free catalog and shop from it's full color pages and pricing all year round.

I remember, next to a new backpack, of of the most exciting things about back-to-school stock ups was being able to choose all new, colorful, pens. Gel pens became a really big thing for my generation in Jr. High- we loved all the vibrant colors and many book covers an notebooks were often coated in energetic doodles and proclamations of the latest celebrity dreamboat. One of my favorite brands was Zebra, for their innovative technology in writing instruments, which seamlessly combined with the fun and practical needs of a student.

No matter your grade or age, Zebra is sure to have the perfect writing utensil for you. The Low Viscosity Advanced Ink retractables are great for grading papers or taking color-coded sidebar notes on essay drafts. Zebra Pen's new range of Stylus pens do double duty as a writing instrument and smartphone or tablet tool with beautiful colors, and are perfect for business minded moms in the carpool lane. The Cadoozles Mechanical Pencils come in a 28PC value pack, are perfect to get you through the entire school year (or maybe my Winter bowling league scorecards!) Personally, there's enough personality in the Zebra collection of products at Penny Wise to help turn even the grumpiest back-to-school shopping frown into a smile.
