Back-to-School Excitement, Preparation, Organization and More #ShopletReviews

A couple of weeks before  the kids went back to school, my daughter and I started gathering the school supplies that they need.  We do recycle things that they can still use like   pens, pencil, coloring materials and more.  School supplies are not cheap so as much as we can we can, we are  reusing supplies that aren't used from the previous school year.  I am just glad that both of my kids are okay that not all their supplies are  newly.  I mean, what's the point of buying new ones if the  old ones are still okay to use right?
The school registration was on August 17 and 18, we chose to register on the second day.  We brought  all the supplies they need in their respective classrooms and paid the tuition.  The tuition hiked up again this year, we paid $4,170 for both of  them  for the whole school year.  
Their first day of school was August 19th and that is always the exciting part for them because they get to go to school without wearing their uniform.  We bought them new outfits  to wear for that specific day.  
I can't believe my babies are now in 6th and 4th year!  Where did the time go?  I can still remember when I was nauseated  sending my first born to kindergarten lol.  Now, they are bigger and act like they know everything sometimes ha!
I am glad that their school uniforms still fits, at least I don't have to buy them new ones yet.  Uniforms are expensive too but the good thing about wearing it  is that, you only need few pairs of them unlike when you have to wear  regular clothes, you have to buy   a lot.  
My husband  wanted to go to work on that day but I asked him not to even though we need  the moolah these days.  I don't want him missing a lot of the kids school  moments because they sure are growing up so fast and they won't be  kids forever.  
It's also nice that they still want their pictures taken in the classroom with their parents hahaha.  I am glad they aren't  that cool yet to be with their Mom and Dad.  
Our 4th grader  has a new teacher this year  so he wasn't comfortable going in the first day but I am glad that their teacher is really nice.  She made the kids feel at home in her classroom which is a big relief for me.
Our daughter is now in 6th grade and she is still the  smallest among her class.  Compared to her classmates, she is so tiny.
I was able to go to her classroom and snap some photos before we left the school.  First day is always exciting for students as they get to see their friends after a long summer break.  For some, it is a bit stressful because it's hard to go back to everyday routine of going to school as oppose to staying  at home and relaxing.  My son feel that way, she always  dreaded going back to school for the first week but after that, his anxiety settles.  

On the first week, a lot of teachers send out paper communication for parents  but after that, they  do communicate online.  A lot of teachers nowadays are using an app to communicate with parents as well so it eliminates the  bundle of papers to keep.  There are however, important papers that needs to be  kept so I am glad that I have a new office supplies to use from Shoplet. 


 I got a pack of this Supertab Section Folder which is perfect for my son's needs. This year, they are doing a a color coding technique for their notebooks and folders to easily identify their subjects and the things that need to be sent out home for signatures and the things that they need to keep in school.  I love when a teacher is very organized because it makes it easier not only for the students but for parents as well.
The vertical expanding file is great  for my office use because  I get to organize all their  schedules  not only in school but for their extra curricular activities.  
Shoplet is a one-stop shop  for all your need in your home office or business.  They have  Office Supplies,   Medical SuppliesCleaning Supplies and many more.

  7. I love recycling things that we already have in the house from previous years. I hope that my son's teacher sends home any extra things that they have leftover at the end of the year.
