New Must-Haves for Students of All Ages! #MySillyLittleGang #BacktoSchool
From pre-teens to college-bound students, we have some new products that will assist in a smooth school year. Here are some new must-haves for students of all ages!
New Must-Haves for Students of All Ages!
I have a few new products to tell you about that are perfect for all students from pre-teens to those college-bound! I will start off by telling you about these great products, then I will finish off with some tried and true favorites.
Wrap Rage is a real thing. The struggle to open clamshell and other hard plastic packaging. Back to School means online shopping for supplies, dorm necessities, and all the new technology products for the student headed back to class! Slitit by Raeco is a simple, safe and hassle-free opener that will tackle any tough packaging in seconds!
I couldn’t believe how easy this made my back-to-school prepping (getting backpacks ready etc.). I cut down lots of time. I have been recommending SlitIt to all my friends and family, so of course, I had to recommend it to you too! SlitIt is great for dorm dwellers who order online and/or receive care packages and student home dwellers whose parents will need this. Slitit has a ground cutting edge that maximizes performance and cuts through the most challenging plastic in seconds-the more you use it the sharper it gets. This school season stop struggling and glide through tough packages.
Available on Amazon, the SlitIt website, or The Grommet. Price: $9.95
EKC Natural Deodorant-The Stink is Real.
How to make friends and influence teachers-HYGIENE! It’s your growing child’s best friend as he/she heads back to school. Naturally take the “stink” out of the student, as their bodies begin to change. EKC Natural Deodorant is the answer.
We have heard how dangerous having aluminum in our deodorants can be. Yet it surprises me how many name brand deodorants include this ingredient. After trying out EKC Natural Deodorant I have found that I love how well it works. Even my pre-teen who has tried many natural deodorants really likes this one! Plus we find that it is the best one to keep our body odor in check!
Another thing I really like about this company is that it is a non-profit company is devoted to educating and donating safe deodorant (1 tube sold=1 tube donated). Over 60% of the ingredients found in deodorants and antiperspirants are so toxic that they are banned throughout the world, but NOT in the US? That is why Dr. Jessica Benningfield decided to make her own line of safe deodorants for her daughters in her kitchen. EKC Natural Deodorant is organic, all-natural and made in the USA. It contains no harmful chemicals like aluminum, glycols, parabens, sulfates or zinc salts-some of these have been found in breast tumors! You can’t stop them from growing, but you can guide them to use healthy products as they mature. There are two scents available (lavender and original-coconut).
Available on Amazon, or the Evelyn Kay Club Website Price: $13/1 tube lasts 3-4 months.
NoteTower Monitor Mount – Note to self.
Get the revolutionary NoteTower Monitor Mount and keep your student de-cluttered, organized and highly productive! In a world of information overload, it’s impossible to keep all in one place.
I have the NoteTower Desktop Pro and I love it! It doesn’t take much desk space and it keeps everything I need right in my field of vision. This year I added the NoteTower Monitor Mount to my oldest’s school supply shopping list. He absolutely loves it!
Like the” high-tech” Cloud storage the “low tech” NoteTower physically holds paper stragglers (sticky notes, photographs, flyers, invitations, etc) in one place while giving easy access and visibility to all. With its innovative ergonomic extending arms, it can support most paper notes/documents in both portrait and landscape. The NoteTower’s clamp makes it easy to mount to laptops, tablets and thin monitors (includes a bracket for thicker monitors).
Keep your student organized this year with the NoteTower Monitor Mount on Amazon and the NoteTower Website. Price: $17.99
Airfree Tulip Filterless Air Purifier
This is definitely the best air filters I have ever used! I am very picky and very particular about my air purifiers, mainly because we use them in the bedrooms. This unit is silent which makes it perfect for me. We have one of these in every room of my house to “purify” the air. We have several different models, and I can tell you that Tulip is the best version of the air free filters.
The beautiful lights it has are perfect to use as a night light. Which my youngest loves! I like that you can also use it without any light at all. I also love how slim it is! No matter where I place it I know it will fit perfectly! This is definitely a product I don’t know how I lived without. I definitely recommend it, which is why it made it onto this list.
Most standard air purifiers use filters which capture mold spores and cause mold growth on the filter causing more issues for allergy sufferers. College students are too busy to worry about changing filters as most standard air purifiers require. Airfree is a new air purifier that sterilizes the air without the use of a filter and allows air to flow in and out while safely and effectively eliminating airborne allergens like pollen, dust mites, and mold. Airfree is the MOST TESTED purifier on the market. Airfree takes in our indoor air and uses high heat to destroy all airborne particles, allergens, mold spores, and microbiological antigens and returns it to the environment, providing you with clean, sterile air.
Available on Amazon.

Okay, now let’s get into the tried and true favorites that we have loved for a while.
Bostitch QuietSharp Pencil Sharpener
Even though we don’t use this in a classroom with three boys we sharpen tons of pencils. This sharpener will sharpen pencils quickly, quietly, and safely. It has a tamper-proof MagnaSafe shutoff technology smartly prevents operation when the shavings tray is removed. So, if the tray is removed, there’s no way to get the motor to run. This makes it the standard for safety in an environment with children around.
We like the 6-size selector dial because it will accommodate the various pencil and colored pencil sizes. I also really like that once a pencil is completely sharp, the blade cutters will pull back and no further sharpening can be done.
To ensure safety in the classroom, the tamper-proof MagnaSafe shutoff technology smartly prevents operation when the shavings tray is removed. So, if the tray is removed, there’s no way to get the motor to run. This makes it the standard for safety in a classroom environment with young children around.
The kid-friendly, easy turn 6-size selector dial will accommodate the various pencil sizes used in schools. Whether your classroom is full of elementary school students using a jumbo pencil or a Ticonderoga Tri-Write; or older learners who use standard pencils, this electric pencil sharpener has got you covered! And for ease of use, the Tip Saver Technology prevents over sharpening, extending pencil life. Once a pencil is completely sharp, the blade cutters will pull back and no further sharpening can be done.
The thing I like the most is that Bostitch Office also offers a 7-year warranty on this awesome sharpener. Have the peace of mind of knowing that if anything goes wrong, you know you can always trust Bostitch to get you back in business!

You may use it as a laptop stand, work stand, reading desk or for whatever situation you may need it.

OFEILY Lunch Tote
The main thing that I like about these lunch totes is that they are made of Fine Neoprene Material, the Fabric Keeps Food Hot/Cold. And the strong, flexible neoprene is both insulating and nontoxic, safe materials to keep your lunch free from harmful elements found in lesser quality, cheaper lunch bags. Sturdy, high-quality zipper ensures that your bag will be easy to zip open and close even when stretched to maximum capacity. This designer lunch bag will last years and will look just as striking years from now as it does today.
Bento Lunch Box/Meal Prep Containers
These containers offer total convenience with freezer and microwave safe containers up to a temperature of 120degrees or 248F, so you can plan ahead and enjoy a hot lunch on the go. Are you ready to stop throwing away single-use bags and containers? These BPA-free, reusable lunch box trays include individual compartments, are food safe & made to last. No more hand washing of delicate food storage containers. Just toss your Lucentee Bento Boxes in the dishwasher (top rack only) and they’ll be ready for your next meal. Unlike other Bento boxes, this Lucentee meal prep set is made for hungry kids and grownups, too. The large capacity easily holds enough food to keep off hunger on even your busiest days, with a capacity of 1150 ml or 39 oz.
