    I love back to school time. I have two favorite ‘new’ school supplies. For the kids new crayons, nothing colors better than a brand new box of crayons and for me….pens. LoL I always buy some new ones at the back to school sales. We always seem to be losing pens so we never have enough. And I use different colored pens for each person in the family.

    I just AWWW’d over the potential for a free give away to make school days easier. I’d love the calendar, my daughter’s started soccer and gymnastics. To be able to have stickers to represent her activities in a visual way would be so helpful for her; she’s 4 and doesnt read.

    I love all back to school supplies or office supplies. Anything that has bright colors and pretty designs on them. When I am having a bad day I go to my collection of pens, pencils, binders, color post it notes etc and this make me so happy. A great new pen and a lovely book to record your daily thoughts is such a wonderful time to sit and enjoy your alone time.

  51. 51

  66. 66
    Barbara Hall says

    My favorite back to school (and any other time) school supplies are a new sprial-bound notebook and coloured pens. I use the notebook to track everything. Each colour is designated for different things. For example, green is for my volunteer work for a local environmental society, blue is for home renovation and design ideas, purple is for wardrobe planning ideas, etc. Add some Post-It tabs and my notebook could change the world!

  67. 67
    Olusola says

    Gel pens! When I was growing up, we didn’t have gel pens so I overcompensate by stocking up during back to school sales

    Alicia says

    My absolutely favourite back-to-school items for my 5 & 61/2 year olds are Mabel’s Labels ( for all their stuff…jackets, shoes, waterbottles…..we have saved so much money not having to replace lost items! That makes them a must in our family!

  69. 69

    I LOVE supplies all of them, the smell of new school supplies makes me happy. Sadly our school buys them in elementary school here. So we don’t have to buy them now. But it was my favourite to organize all the new supplies in my backpack when I was younger

  89. 89
    Robin says

    This is my first year needing to buy supplies for my kids. I always loved getting new supplies when I was a child, but there is so much more available now! I have no idea what my boy will need so I would love to win this pack so that I could sample everything and know what I will want in future years!

  91. 91
    Karen says

    Amazing how many of those same products I was looking at this week in Walmart! Our favorite “back-to-homeschool” supplies are shiny new pens and notebooks for the year’s journals, and art supplies.

  92. 92
    Yvette says

    After homeschooling for 2 years I am putting my girls back into the public system. I forgot how much back to school shopping could be so stressful! I would have to say the best thing for us are the five star binders cause that is the only thing my girls can agree on that they like and fast! Otherwise there are so many choices they can’t decide and want the latest and coolest of everything. haha I am glad to say I am finished my back to school shopping finally along with clothes and survived!!! LOL

  93. 93

    Pens! I have a weakness for pens. I used to work at an office supply store…I had to train myself not to buy everything!

  100. 100
    Camille says

    I love highlighters and pens. When i shop for my kids I make sure to pick up extras for myself, I know it’s a sickness. LOL

  102. 102
    Hilda @ From Overwhelmed To Organized says

    Yay! A contest for Canadians! And school supplies too :) I love school supplies of any sort. I’m particularly interested in the Mom’s fridge calendar. I’ve always wanted to try one but we always end up being given lots of traditional wall calendars instead. Winning one would be amazing! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  103. 103
    Angela B says

    Ummm……I love all back to school supplies. Opening up a new pack of pens, sharpening fresh pencils; getting it all organized; it all reminds me of a new school year/ a new beginning.

  104. 104
    Sacha says

    My favorite supplies for back to school are pretty pens and notebooks filled to the brim with empty pages just waiting for me to write on!

  105. 105
    Erin says

    Even though I am long out of school, every year at this time, I comb the back to school sections for decorative ballpoint pens. In my school days, Papermate made great ones each year with flowers, bugs, designs, etc. And from that day on, I love pretty pens!!

  106. 106
    Julie Hall says

    There is nothing better than new school supplies!

  107. 107
    C. Fenouille says

    For me back to school means a new notebook, a day timer and a calendar. I have to stop myself from buying EVERYTHING as I love the feel and smell of new school stuff. Now with kids, I also add “labels” to my list of back to school goodies.

  108. 108
    diane says

    would love this to start back to school with all organized!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kathryn says

    Pens and planners and markers oh my!

  112. 112
    Melanie says

    One of my favourite back to school items is a hand-held pencil sharpener. Nothing like the gentle twist of getting your pencils and pencil crayons sharp and ready for another school year. And contests to see who can twist off the longest shavings!

  113. 113
    Kathy Guttinger says

    I love how my kids get excited for new supplies.

  116. 116
    HB says

    I would love to win this bundle! My favorite thing for back to school is definitely a calendar with stickers for marking important events and activities. My new fridge is stainless steel so magnets don’t stick to it, but I’ve found a way with suction cups and hooks to still get my family calendar on the fridge.

  117. 117
    Karen says

    My favorite school supplies for the kids would be their rollerbags and cute calendars to help them organize themselves and their homework.

  118. 118
    Jesse says

    I love school supplies and getting my family organized. These items would definitely help out! I love colour coding our calendar. Fingers crossed we win! :-)

  127. 127
    Laura K. says

    I love school supplies … always have. Now I just call the office supplies instead. But my most favourite has to be a brand new notebook – limitless possibilities!

    Vaecordia says

    After being out of school for more than 10 years, I’m going back! and I couldn’t possibly be more excited.

    My favourite school supplies: Pens & notebooks. Brand new, needle point, dark blue ink pens and clean hardcover pristine white notebooks just bursting with possibilities. Makes me quiver with happy.

  130. 130
    Corlie says

    For me it’s new pens, love opening up a new package of those.
    Now being a Mom to an elementary school child, I love anything to help with planning/organizing.
    All these goodies sure would come in handy.

  131. 131
    Marian says

    I have to say that my favourite back to school supplies are a big fridge calender and post it notes. I have 4 kids and both help save time and keep us on schedule!

  132. 132
    Livia says

    I love the agendas (planners) that is supplied by the schools. Although they’re for the students only, if you beg and plead with them long enough, they will sell you one.

  133. 133
    Jenny says

    Cute notebooks like the ladybug one you have in the picture
