Plum Organics and My Recommended Afterschool Essentials

by | Oct 2, 2013 | Family & Friends, Sponsored | 24 comments

*I am excited to be a Featured Plum Organics blogger! Thanks to Plum Organics for sponsoring this post. All opinion and recommendations are my own.*

We are full-throttle into the new school year. We are doing lots of things, and much of those lots of things require running about. What do you keep on hand to help your after-school routine run smoothly? I make sure I have handy, resealable snacks (like Plum Organics Mashups), a Moleskine notebook, and colored pens.

Trouble viewing this view? Watch here.

I like Plum Organics Mashups because they are SO transportable and well… ORGANIC.

I like them even more because MY KIDS like to eat them. There’s nothing quite like feeling all prepared for an afternoon of running around and realizing the kids won’t eat the snack they need to make it through to dinner. What a pain! I like the Berry Mashups because MY KIDS LIKE THE BERRY MASHUPS. Ahhh… harmony.

Also, I couldn’t survive without my Moleskine and happy, colored pens. I use my Moleskine like a journal. But I also use it for keeping my gigantic and ever-revolving to-do lists in one place. Before I adopted the use of my journal for everything, I was a notecard and post-it girl. Those notes were only helpful when I could find them. How quickly they’d get lost or buried or mindlessly thrown in the trash. A lost note is not a helpful note.

Furthermore, my journal is a great boredom buster for the kids. My thoughts inside are not so private I can’t hand it over to Lucy to practice her spelling words, or for a bit of drawing to creatively and colorfully kill 10 minutes while waiting for brother, or sister, or dad. I honestly don’t know what I ever did before incorporating this notebook into my life.

How about you? What are your go-to after-school, lifesaving items? What can’t you live without as you tackle those very busy after-school hours… from rehearsals to practices to homework…
