Back to School = Mama is broke

I am feeling amazed at the moment.  Amazed at the sum of school fees, school supplies, music group fees, not to mention those nebulous sports fees, the ones I always think about springing for but rarely do. Education can be expensive!  Which is why it is unlikely I will ever buy any of the following for my children.  Still fun to look at though :).

Check this out - OOTS! Eco friendly lunchboxes.  Yes, they are BPA free and all that jazz.  Mostly, they are well designed and good lookin'.  I would buy these for the kids and probably use them myself :).

Next back to school item of my dreams is a cultural icon in Japan: the Randoseru backpack, by Hideo Wakmatsu.  I can really see why it has achieved icon status!  Of course, I love it but I would be surprised if my kids would like it.  

I also found this navy color and I just had one kid vote yes.  Too bad!  Too expensive!  ;)
Now these are too cool not to share.  These are actually mechanical pencils, though they look like wood.  Even cooler?  They are different colors.  Loving it-

Maybe I could do the pencils.  

Maybe ;)

I have had my eye on the goodbyn for a while but haven't been able to justify the price to myself yet. I loooooove mechanical pencils! Those are too cute.

Here is the link but I am pretty sure you are the one who showed them to me in the first place...
