It is very important for children and adults alike to setup a separate space to either do homework or office work without distractions. We have a dedicated room to study, work, and practice our creative flow. We spruced up our creative corner by adding a couple of office and school furniture from Canadian Tire. The CANVAS brand Blair office chair and the Clara desk go well together and bring a whole different, refreshing feel to the room.

We have been busy travelling and enjoying the warm weather, which has made it hard to come to terms with reality - school will be starting in a couple of weeks! With shopping malls becoming busy for back to school shopping, we find the most convenient way to shop is online at Amazon.ca.

This is the time of the year, we shop for the latest trends, colours, and styles of clothing for our children. Before a new school year starts, we go through our children's closet to get rid of clothes that no longer fit them, and shop for outfits that they will enjoy wearing to school especially as the weather becomes cooler. We like shopping at Sears Canada for children's clothes because they have a wide selection of their own private label styles at reasonable prices.

BIC has developed a range of trendy writing tools and handwriting activities that engages and motivates children for the upcoming school year. Learning how to write by hand is an important and crucial skill that helps children develop skills such as physical fine motor skills, cognitive skills, social, emotional, literacy, and communication skills. Being able to write encourages a sense of independence that helps children become thoughtful, inquisitive and confident learners.

One of the fun things before school starts is preparing to go back to school. Having the new and trendy school accessories is always exciting for little ones as well as adults :) We enjoy being ready and organized with all types of writing tools and supplies by taking our time to decorate and personalize the accessories. We found the back to school products at Avery Canada allows us to do this easily.

Although, going back to school is far from our minds – looking at the rate, at which the days are passing by, I do not want us to be unprepared when the time comes for us to go back to school. Getting our children back-to-school ready is simple with the variety of products available at Sport Chek.

During the summer it is always better to keep our selves actively engaged not only in outdoor play, but also reading and revising concepts to avoid the summer slide. The books at DK's Back to School Boutique is helping us.

Giant Tiger, a Canadian family owned discount store that has over 200 stores in 8 provinces across Canada. I like that they carry affordable, everyday necessities at low prices. It is a one-stop shop with wonderful deals on products for the home and for everyone in the family. I found it neat that each of their stores have unique deals to meet the needs of customers who come to the specific stores. While shopping at a Giant Tiger location close to our home, I found some useful items that were reasonably priced.

I enjoyed checking out the colourful PC® Back-to-school and Fall Collections. The colour choices in their Life at Home and Everyday Essentials collection are really attractive. Adding these colourful pieces will quickly and pleasantly change the decor of any room suitable for upcoming entertainments and celebrations.

Back to School time is just around the corner, and many of us may have already stocked-up on all the essentials from notebooks, pens, and clothes to prep our children for class. However, our little ones will also need a few things to tend those cuts and scrapes acquired on the playground. This Shoppers Drug Mart Back to School Prep Kit will help children get back into the swing of things and stay healthy.

Although, many of us wish summer didn't end we know our jobs, schools, and all those appointments are waiting for us. If we are organized and manage our time well, all these planned activities will run smoothly. Planning and staying organized is a little more fun when it is done in a planner designed by ourself. I enjoy making planners with Personal-Planner because of the ease of making the planner. They have lots of options that we can choose to make our planner unique.

Times have changed since the humble brown bag ruled the lunch room. Many schools have taken the initiative to be eco-friendly and require us to bring a litter-less lunch. This insulated tote bag with adjustable strap is wonderful to carry our lunch in. The quality of food, the variety and portions we take for lunch are more important than just the convenience. Making a meal that is appealing and then putting it in a container that is well designed and multifunctional, will keep our food the way it is supposed to be enjoyed.
