Reviews: Back to school essentials

Review 800x400
It’s hard to believe but we are well and truly passed the halfway mark of the summer holidays and in just a few weeks some children will be returning to school and some will just be beginning. Over at Mummy in a Tutu we still have another year to go until I join the hundreds of thousands of parents sharing pictures of their child’s first day of school. So, this month I thought I’d bring you some great reviews of all the essentials you’ll need for the Back to School season.

Jenny over at The Gingerbread House is kicking us off with her M&S Back To School Uniform Review. I’ve always liked M&S for good clothes quality and for the basics like the shirts, trousers, skirts etc. it’s just perfect for stocking up on bits that will last. Of course, no uniform would be complete without a decent pair of shoes and Laura of Five Little Doves has been reviewing the Start-rite Back to School Range. I’ve used Start-rite for my little one right from the beginning because you just know you’re getting a shoe that works for your child’s feet.

Kelly over at Kelly Allen Writer has got lunchtime covered with her great round-up review of Asda Smash Pack Lunchboxes. Her review shows the whole range and there is sure to be something to suit everyone. 

Back to school for me was always exciting because of the stationery and Becky over at Family Budgeting has done a great post on Smiggle Back to School and How to Save Money. Stationery is gorgeous but the costs can add up so it’s nice to find ways to save.

Finally, with all this new stuff, you want to make sure that your darling little ones aren’t going to lose it all and Beth at Twinderlemo has been reviewing Uniform and Clothing Labels to make sure it all comes home with them at the end of the day…or perhaps the week at least!

Hopefully this has checked everything off your list and both you and your little one have a great start to the school year!
