I have kids who won’t have their winter gloves until the day after it actually snows, and I am so late buying bathing suits we’re stuck with whatever scary selection is left on the sales racks at Old Navy in mid-June. Why is this you might ask?
1) I just cannot get my sh*t together.
2) I am busy picking out fabulous and adorable things for other moms’ kids that I forget my own. Mea culpa.
Case in point: The annual Cool Mom Picks Back to School Shopping Guide, hot off the virtual presses, and filled with many delightful goodies carefully selected by some of your favorite bloggers. And me.
We’ve found everything from eco-supplies to backpacks and lunchboxes, awesome organic snacks, clothes reflecting this season’s big trends, and, I kid you not, a $399 lunchbox. Just for fun.
If I could beseech you to pop over and maybe support one of the smaller shops, designers and mom-run businesses that we’re mostly featuring that would be just awesome. There are also a ton of exclusive discount codes up to a whopping 50% off, because we know that for the most part, this is not the year to buy a $399 lunchbox.
Also? Cool giveaway. Hello.
Be so kind as to post the above dandy badge on your blog and help us spread the word, and we’ll enter you to win $450 in gift certificates towards our sponsors Moxie Kids which sells amaaaaazing kids clothes, and EM Tanner Designs which rocks the personalized lunchboxes and more. All the details are on the back to school guide.
