I know it’s tough to believe that summer is drawing to a close. Long, hot days of family adventure and aimless fun are soon to be no longer, and now we begin to focus our attention on what’s to come.

And what’s to come is … school. Yep, you heard it here first. On one hand, it’s a bummer to send the kids back to school because spending quality time with family is such a joy and a blessing. On the other hand, the kids have a year of learning and friendship to look forward to, and some solitary mom time is starting to sound pretty good, isn’t it?

So how do you make sure you send the kids back to school looking stellar and feeling fully prepared to face the year ahead?

Make sure their bags are full of the art supplies and tech gadgets they need and that they are dressed to impress. And who better to entrust with choosing the coolest and most affordable items for your child than the one and only Ellen DeGeneres!

Since you probably don’t have her phone number, we can tell you where to go to shop her hand-curated selection of back-to-school essentials just in time for the new school year.
