It has been a while since I posted anything here so I have a little bit of updating to do! First off, I’m so excited to say for the past few months I have been working! I got a job teaching at a local Montessori school and I am so excited about this. Since I am now working full-time, Mackenzie has also had the opportunity to go to the same school where I work. She has grown so much since starting school and this has been such a great opportunity for both of us. Secondly, Koryn has been away for a little while now and our family will not be together again for a few more weeks/months.
We have faced so many adjustments and changes in the past few months but it has been better for our family in the long run. With all of that being said, today’s post is all about our back-to-school/work survival kit and favorites. Adjusting to working again and have a toddler in school full time all while being alone is so new to us and we learned a lot about what works and doesn’t work for our family.
The first thing we could not live without for school is essential oils! We use Plant Therapy oils and LOVE the roll-on bottles. The ones we keep on hand and use almost daily are lavender, nighty night, germ fighter, germ destroyer, and sniffle stopper! I get mine from Amazon but we also get coupons all the time from their site! Ebates is offering a 3.75% cash back right now and you can sign up using my link and get $10! Our nighty night and lavender are used nightly in our household.
The second product we LOVE are the planet wise reuseable ziplock bags. We have them in several pattern and sizes. These are perfect for school snacks and snacks on the go. We use their sandwich bags and snack size bags almost daily. Personally, we use the zipper bag versus the velcro ones but we do have some of each!
Our third must have is the Squeasy pouch! Mackenzie loves to eat applesauce and smoothies and this is the perfect item for this! These are so easy to wash and even easier to fill up! I was so tired of buying the applesauce pouches that you throw away so these made our lives so much easier and I can’t wait to get more!
These past two months have been have huge change for us but it has been so great. We have loved being able to get out of the house and Mackenzie is learning so much. I cannot wait until Koryn comes home and we can spend the holidays together as a family.
