Back to School with Five Star®

I received the following products solely for review purposes.

Two more weeks until school starts back here. Two more long, boring, whining-filled weeks. Little Miss Priss, the 10-year-old, goes into 5th grade this year and has just decided that she needs to be this trendy fashion-forward popular kid this year. Thanks to Mead and Five Star, she'll at least be armed with some pretty cool back-to-school supplies to help her focus on her education while she's trying out her newly-discovered sense of self.

The Five Star® Big Mouth Backpack with silver and berry accents is Lexi's new favorite thing in the world. She loves that the main compartment is big enough to carry her zipper binder and her 2-inch ring binders, and with the new patent-pending "big mouth" zipper, she's able to find all her supplies without having to basically crawl into her backpack and dig at the bottom. 

• Dual zippers for easy open and close.
• Handle on the top to hang backpack in a locker.
• Patent-pending main compartment opens wide to quickly and easily find supplies
• Padded front panel provides extra protection for tablets or other digital devices
• Super big main compartment can hold textbooks, binders, notebooks and more
• Interior pockets provide convenient storage for smaller items to keep pens, pencils and more easily accessible
• Side, exterior pocket is perfect for holding a water bottle
• Padded backpack back and straps provide better support when carrying heavy loads. Adjustable for comfort
• Backpack overall dimensions: 13" x 18" x 8"

We also received a couple of their Five Star Flex® Hybrid NoteBinder® notebooks. These are easily the coolest notebooks I've ever used. That's right, I had to swipe one for my own personal use. One thing that has always bothered me about binders is that there's really no way to bend the front back to make it easier to take notes. This new design has the flexibility of a notebook, but the rings of a binder. Even better, their patented TechLock® rings won't break or misalign - another huge pet peeve of mine.

• Patented TechLock® ring won't break or misalign
• Rings open easily to add paper and dividers (like a binder)
• Durable plastic cover folds over to lie flat (like a notebook)
• Includes: NotePocket® dividers, NoteProtector® dividers and 8.5” x 11" paper (college and quad ruled)
• 6 color options

Five Star® also offers Reinforced Filler Paper, which we tested out too. The triangle-shaped holes and stronger reinforcement tape help to resist tearing, perfect in the Flex Notebinder.

This year, Lexi may be worrying about boys and making friends, but I know she won't worry about staying organized and on top of her school work with these awesome Five Star® products.
