Back to school time is quickly approaching. With some schools set to start in just over two weeks. Soon, many of us will be packing lunches, helping with homework and wondering why we signed up to help with all those clubs. It’s a magical time of year. We notice how much our children have grown, we trim the carefree summer hair, and dress them in new adorable clothes. With that said, it is time for the back to school shopping season to begin. There are many different things needed to purchase this time of year. From clothes and shoes, to back packs and school supplies.
Late summer becomes almost as big of a shopping event as the winter holiday season. For most places, when you enter your local box stores, you can already see the sale signs and displays getting ready to lure you in to buying all those extra boxes of crayons.
Here at American Stationery, we can help you get started with some of your back to school shopping.

Or use them to drop notes off in a colleague’s mailbox.
Email is great but sometimes we need a tangible reminder. Something to hold in our hand and remind us that the PTO meeting has been changed to 5:30.
