Go Back To School With Elmer’s Glue and Expo 9/25

School starts tomorrow for us and as a parent I’m excited for them to get back and learn. I know they are excited to see friends and get into a routine. Depending on schools the supply list can be never ending. Thankfully Elmer’s Glue and Expo have always been trusted brands parents trust.

Some new products that these great brands have just in time for back to school this year are:

Elmer’s is taking craft projects to the next level with Disappearing Purple Liquid School Glue that goes on purple but dries clear so teachers can see exactly where students are gluing. Its Re-Stick Glue Stick allows for the repositioning of items for up to five minutes to make sure projects come out great!

EXPO Dry Erase Markers with Ink Indicator With its clear ink barrel, teachers – and their students – can see exactly how much ink is remaining. Other product features include high visibility and low odor ink. Also available in six bold and bright colors: Black, Blue, Red, Green, Purple, and Lime.

I have never been a great crafter or even helping my kids with their school projects I always glue something wrong. These Re-stick glue stick is amazing as you can replace the picture anywhere within 5 minutes and it will still stay.
The Expo markers are great no more guessing if the marker is dried out, out of ink, or just not working.

Back To School: HP Envy 5540 Review and HP Instant Ink

Disclosure: A product was provided as well as a gift card to try HP Instant Ink. All opinions are 100% my own.

School is back in session full time now, and one thing I have realized is most homework is based online. Even my 2nd grader is coming home with projects where he needs to do research on the computer and print pictures or assignments out. We just had a older printer and the pictures were not good quality at all, and it was really slow.

Just in the knick of time we received the new HP Envy 5540 to review. My daughter has a big family project due soon, and needs tons of pictures as well as write a summary about them.

The Hp Envy 5540 is a wireless all in one sprinter. It prints, scans, copies, and you can print from anything including tablets and phones. I wanted to test it out so I downloaded the HP MyPrintly app and the pictures came out great, looks as if they had been professional.

The Printer aso prints incredibly fast with up to 12 pages per minute for black ink and 8 pages for colored ink.   HP Envy 5540 also offers double side printing and helps you save not only on ink but paper as well.

 

I love being able to print from anywhere inside my house, and from any device. I also love the the HP Envy 5540 has a automatic deploy output tray, whenever my printer gets a job. I don’t have to worry about pictures or documents printing and falling to the floor.

Hp is introducing a new way to save on ink, with HP Instant Ink for newer printers. You just sign up online and for as low as $2.99 a shipment you can have ink delivered to your home.

HP Instant Ink is delivered when your printer lets the home network know you are low on ink. You also get 3 months free.

I signed up for the HP Instant Ink service and within 2 weeks I received my first replacement cartridges. It was a little off to me because according to my printer I still had plenty of ink left. It saves me from having to go to the store though, or worry about if I have twenty dollars to go buy new cartridges in store.

Epson iLabel App makes Back To School Easy

Disclosure: No Formal Compensation was received for this post. A product was provided for my review.

IMG_2030

I can’t believe the kids are heading back to school in under 2 weeks. We are excited and getting prepared. We have all our supplies bought and separated by child. All we need to do is label the items with their names. My kids like to keep track of their stuff, as things get misplaced and borrowed, having their name on it helps to make sure it is returned.

The Epson LW-600P is the first app-enabled label printer on the market,offering unmatched capabilities in the world of label creation.

Downloading the Epson iLabel App is free and you just turn on your bluetooth and connect the printer to your iPad.

You simply type what you want the label to say and you can ad emoticons or symbols to add effects. Then just peel the back and stick. We used the to label the kids school supplies. My daughter is in 4th and needs tons of stuff including colored binders. The labels were perfect.
It can be a little tricky trying to peel off the back to get to the sticker, but if you have nails or key it helps loosen it.

We also received the Epson Iron On Label Kit. This was a bit different from the LW600P. It is a regular label printer with a small keyboard. you type what you want print and cut. Then iron on clothing and other products.
We used them to iron on the inside of their backpacks, for back to school.

IMG_2054

It seemed a little difficult to iron on some things but it all worked out in the end. I have happy kids who are ready to show off their new gear without the worry of it getting lost or stolen.

The labels have made things so much easier in my house with organization and labeling the kids items.

Pepperidge Farm introduces Goldfish Puffs, Perfect For Snacks

Disclosure: No monetary compensation was received, a product was provided for my review.

School is back in session and that means that I have to have a lot of snacks on hand. The kids pack their lunches most days, have snack time at school and usually ask for a snack when they get home.

Their favorite snack is cheese crackers of course, they love Goldfish. We recently were able to try the new Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Puffs.

At first I thought they were going to be like the puffs for babies, just a bigger cracker. These looked like a chip kind of, or as my daughter say a Cheetos chip. They taste exactly like them too. A cheesy puff snack.

They have different flavors of the snacks:
Mega Cheese
Cheddar Bacon
Buffalo Wing

IMG_0662

IMG_0663

My favorite is the mega cheese, it is just the right amount of cheese and a perfect snack. My kids took a liking to the Cheddar Bacon and My daughter like the Buffalo Wings. These snacks do stick to your fingers so if you send them as a snack to school, make sure you pack some napkins.

What’s your favorite Goldfish snack?

#BackToSchool Quick Healthy Breakfast Snack With #BelVita #SP

Disclosure:  No compensation was received for this post. Product was provided for my review.

When school starts there are going to be mornings, where we are rushing to get ready for school. I hate mornings like that but it does happen, we wake up late or just take to long with showers.

There are times my kids will not get enough breakfast to eat, before we have to run out and catch the bus. So I always have a breakfast snack on hand to give them, just in case.

The BelVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits are a great breakfast snack before school.

belVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits are not only a tasty morning treat, they’re also a nutritious way to start your day. Made with ingredients like rolled oats and rye,

They come in two varieties:

  • Oats and Chocolate
  • Mixed Berry

**** These are so good, and a great snack to have on hand. The Oats and Chocolate is perfect for adults too, you can have your chocolate snack while still getting your oats.   The Mixed Berry is also dairy free, so you don’t have to worry about allergies. We have a lactose allergy in our family so it was great to be able for us to all eat these breakfast biscuits.
