2013 Back to School Supply Box Giveaway by Office Depot

Who is ready for back to school?  We are now thanks to Office Depot! (Mommy included!)  We received a ton of products to review from the 2013 look book.  It can be so hard to order from online without seeing a review or others thoughts on these products.  Now you can see what we thought about some of these awesome items that you or your kiddos might need on their back to school list!  Plus there is a giveaway!  Who does not like a giveaway?

Office Depot’s 2013 Back to School line has some pretty fun and useful items for not only students but for teachers!  They sent us some of both, so our review is occurring it two parts.  One reviewing the school supplies that a student might use and one reviewing a few teacher supplies!

The school supplies we received were plentiful!  The kids have already picked their favorites!  Some choices were based on colors and others based on the theme.  (animal print, glitter, peace, and hearts)



These folders have the 3 holes for a binder and 2 inside pockets.  They are great to help you keep organized and pretty stylish as well.  Our kids decided to save ours for Kindergarten.

I decided it would be fun to take pictures of the different prints.  My favorite would have to be the glitter items.  Randy would probably tell you that it matches my sparkling personality.

Most of this is self explanatory, but any guess on what the long blue thing and orange and black stripe thing? Give up?  Well they are rope erasers!  I have never seen these before, but beyond brilliant.  It would take you a long time to wear these erasers out.  The calculator looks like a game controller, how fun!

I love how so much of the stuff coordinates and is kid friendly!


As a teacher I have seen tons of all kinds of crayon and some are better than others!  So I had our children try out the crayons and the color pencils to test how they would fair.  office_depot49







Cameron drew a green face.  I am not sure what happen to either his or Elizabeth eyes in these to close up photos.  lol


This is a self portrait of Elizabeth with a flower dress on and pigtails.  I was pretty impressed with how well all the colors showed up.  Plus as you can see in the pictures below they have fun names for some of the colors!  Of course there is red, blue, yellow, and green.  I loved the fact they had a color called peanut butter and another called hot tamale.  I would totally buy these for the kids!






 Of course, by now you are wondering about the giveaway.  Well I promise not to keep you waiting any longer.  Office Depot is hosting a giveaway for not one but TWO WINNERS!  You have a chance to win a school supply box full of school supplies to start your child’s school year off right!
