Back to school shopping guide from Cool Mom PicksWe know there are still a few beach days in your future, but consider this your gentle reminder that the first day of preschool, kindergarten or beyond is just around the bend. But, don’t worry, we’ve got your back and have put together our third annual Back to School Shopping Guide to help make life a little easier for parents of the littlest school kids.

We’ve been ignoring the laundry for days to make sure we found only the coolest gear for back-to-school season, whether it’s eco-friendly school supplies, or clothing, shoes and backpacks that will set your little scholar apart from, well, the pack–you’ll find it here.

And, finally. . .discounts. . . of course, we’ve got amazing discount codes, so don’t miss them!

So go forth and shop. And then be ready for some of the lovely peace and quiet that comes with school time.

Congratulations to Sarah J., winner of the $450 back to school prize package!
