TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - Students shouldn't be the only ones excited over shopping for supplies this time of year. Back-to-school season is an ideal time for mom to take advantage of deals to get herself, and her home, organized for the year ahead.
With more styles and products available at this time of year than any other, Hilroy suggests moms take a second look at supplies and put them to good use in their day-to-day lives.
Expanding files: Today's expanding files far surpass the style and functionality of those from years past. Replaced with trendy designs and improved durability, expanding files are easy to take anywhere, and attractive enough to do so. Perfect for storing important documents and organizing bills, expanding files such as the Five Star® 7-Pocket expanding file with removable sleeves also are ideal for sorting kids' artwork, shopping catalogues, greeting cards and recipes.
Pencil cases and lunch bags: Pretty, functional, and easy to store and clean, pencil cases and lunch bags make ideal, inexpensive makeup bags, locker room totes and travel cases. Look for products made from recycled materials, such as the Hilroy Recycled Fashion Lunch Bags and Pencil Cases.
Zipper binders: One of today's hottest trends in shopping is couponing, and an easy way to keep track of and store coupons is with a zippered binder. Just one search for "coupon binder" on social video websites yields great tips on how to use a zipper binder and pocketed plastic inserts to quickly organize a stash of coupons. Look for binders with added storage features, such as the pockets and internal files in the Five Star® Premier Zipper Binder and Zwipes® Zipper Binder, to keep scissors and lists readily accessible.
Calendars and planners: The back-to-school season brings many additional commitments for families. One central calendar helps keep everyone's schedules organized and on the same page. Look for calendars with unique features, such as reminder stickers and meal planning guides, and pay attention to the functionality of how calendars can be displayed. Magnetic backings and new peel-and-stick adhesives, like that on the AT-A-GLANCE® WallMates™ Calendar, make it easier than ever to create "mission control" anywhere in the home.
