Back-to-School Must-Haves!

Although School has started at home this Fall, there are still school supplies that are needed! Here are a few of my favorites!

USA Gold and USA Titanium offers high-quality wood pencils sourced with American wood and finished in Tennessee.  With almost 60 years of pencil making, USA Titanium continues a family-run legacy in Lewisburg, Tennessee and a vital part of an American community.   These are a real must-have this school year!

·      USA Titanium pencils are high quality, high value.  Compare them to your favorite pencil and see what a difference American quality can make!  With their satin-smooth black finish for enhanced writing comfort,  USA Titanium pencils are available exclusively at Walmart in packs of 12, 24, and 36 pencils. These are sure to be a hit with all ages!

Looking for Felt tip Pens? I absolutely love the Scribble Stuff brand! I use these on a daily basis. They are great for journaling too! They are bold and bright so children will love them too!  Children can add some pizzazz to drawing and art projects!  And teachers will find they make paper grading fun. These long-lasting, vivid pens have a fine point tip for easy of writing and won’t bleed through the paper.  Available in 24 bright colors and an awesome price make it easy to add some fabulous fun to your child’s school day. Scribble Stuff also makes popular gel pens and scented gel pens. Available in assorted packs at Walmart, Target and Amazon.com. Once you try these, you won’t want to buy any others!

OWC also has some great back-to-school essentials! I love the USB-C Travel Dock that I had the opportunity to try out! The OWC USB-C Travel Dock might just be the ultimate portable docking solution for Mac PC and Chromebooks. Drive an HD display, connect and charge two USB devices (like a phone or tablet…), and even access photos on an SD card. You can even add a USB-C power adapter and have a standalone charging station, so you can keep all your devices up and running. The Travel Dock transfers up to 100W of pass-through charging from a USB-C power adapter, ensuring users are powered up and ready to deliver a client presentation or download the day’s last shots. With five essential ports and just one cable, users are prepared to display, charge, connect, and import while on the move. The USB-C Travel Dock features an HDMI port for easy display connections up to 4K resolution and can be used via bus power when users don’t have access to a power outlet.
MSRP: $54.99

OWC also has some other great  Used Macs that can save parents lots of money if they are looking to outfit the kids with a new laptop this school year.

Face Masks are also a must this school year! I love that you can design your own!


Neon Earth
 equips non designers to create absolutely anything under three minutes with their easy-to-use design tool. All you need to do is select any item, add your designs, customize the designs, text, colors and more, and you’re done. You don’t need any knowledge of Photoshop or other designing tools because the in-built tool is extremely simple.
