Handmade Back to School Supplies

Do you ever feel like you spend a ton of money on back to school supplies in August, only to have to replace half the items by December?

It seems like every year, you buy the kids school supplies and within just a few weeks, a binder breaks or a book bag tears.

It’s crazy!

So, this school year, why not make a conscious effort to buy handmade back to school supplies for your kids?

Handmade goods are known for being far better quality!

Plus, you know that special attention and care has been spent on each and every piece, so they’ll last.

Instead of wasting your money on supplies that you’ll be replacing in a short time, spend a little extra from the get-go and ensure that your kids school supplies will last all year.

Here’s some fun ideas…
