Gear Up For School

When it comes to shopping for school supplies, I am like a kid in a candy store.

Although it's been years since I took my last final exam, I am always on the lookout for pretty notebooks, pens and organizers - only now I refer to them as "office" supplies.

School supplies have come a long way since I was in elementary school, when the fanciest thing I could find was a five-subject Mead spiral notebook that featured a different color of pastel paper for each subject!

So, I am super-excited to partner with Office Depot this year to show what's new for back-to-school.  From backpacks to cute school supplies, they have everything students and parents need to gear up for school.

For many kids, it's all about the backpack. Not only do they have all of the popular styles and high-quality brands like High Sierra, Jansport and others - but parents will love that all styles are now 30 percent off. (Photos courtesy of Office Depot).

The exclusive Divoga fashion collections have dozens of cute notebooks, planners, folders, binders, pencil pouches, rulers and other supplies/accessories - perfect for expressing your personal style and accessorizing your basic school uniforms.  I have already stocked up on several of these notebooks!  Here are a few of my faves:

Take a look at all of these cute items - along with some great back-to-school looks from Dockers - on this segment on the "Sonoran Living" show on ABC Phoenix:
