It’s August, and that means it time to start thinking about getting your kids back to school! For many, it will be great to get back to a regular routine. I have such fond memories of going back to school.  I couldn’t wait for the school year to start.  Yes – I was a keener! Our back to school shopping trips were so much fun as well. I was quite a fashionista in my day!

When it came time to go to University, we mainly had hand me down items from friends and family. The basement sofa, my aunts old curtains, lamps from one family friend and old dishes from another family friend. Nothing matched. We did homework on the sofa or the kitchen table.  How things have changed.

Dedicated work space

If you have the room, then I really recommend having a dedicated work space for homework. I really love this student desk from Canadian Tire. It is stylish, yet compact enough to fit almost anywhere. Just add this mesh task chair and your work space is ready for homework!


Are your kids getting heading to College or University?

If your kids are heading to College or University, there are some fabulous items from Canadian Tire. I  know you will love these amazing products created by students with UMBRA and Canadian Tire.

The first product is this shelfie mirror. Don’t  you just love this design.




The next amazing product is this Loft Entry Organizer. What a great space saver! Hand your jackets, shoes and other items.



Next up is this great Umbra Loft Stash Organizer. What a clever design. I would pick up 2-3 of these organizers.
