My Back To School Haul With Staples Canada

I love back to school time. I can’t help it. I’m a back to school junkie, and I love shopping for my kids and all the things they need. Whether it’s backpacks or pens, lunch bags or folders, Staples Canada has everything I need to send my boys back to school the right way.

One of the biggest issues I have with my boys is their backpacks. Kids, especially high school kids are carrying a lot more stuff in their bags than we did when we were school.

Nowadays lots of kids carry laptops, water bottles, team sportswear, and large 3 ring binders. My oldest son whose fourteen is famous for breaking apart his backpacks.

So this year we wanted to get backpacks that fit the bill and were suitable for the kids. Staples had everything we needed to check off on the boys back to school lists.

Staples really does have the coolest stuff for back to school. Lunch bags that are eco-friendly, water bottles that are reusable and dishwasher safe and backpacks at more than 25% off their regular price from brands such as Roots, Maui & Sons, Targus, Five Star, CCM and more. Plus they have young kids licensed gear and equipment from the hottest movies Disney Cars, Man of Steel, The Smurfs and various others.

Staples has everything to go back to school and they have knowledgeable staff to help answer every question you need in computers, cameras, laptops, printers, back to school deals, pens, crayons, pencils, office supplies, printing solutions and more.

We wish to thank Staples for allowing us to go on a shopping at their store, the customer service was great and we found everything we needed for the boys so they’ll be ready come September. Visit Staples Facebook Page for more deals and great back to school specials.

I partnered with Staples Canada. All opinions are 100% my own.

    They do have a lot of materials and a whole huge variety of brands too from Martha Stewart's home office organizing items to Iphone accessories and Crayola. I do a lot of comparison shopping and often find the Staples deals to be some of the best ones around.

    I have the same problem with my kid's backpacks! i like the one from staples that you have, and it is very affordable for a sturdy backpack.

      My boys go through back packs like they do shoes. It's awful and expensive! LOL 🙂

    We only shop at Staples for school or office supplies. One stop store for all our needs:)

    I love all of the locker stuff there! I wish some of it had been available back when I was in school (shhh…we won't talk about when THAT was!). Max only needs a backpack and lunch kit for Kindergarten so I haven't had to stress too much about school shopping. Next year I'm sure will be fun though 😉

      Awww your little man is heading off to kindergarten, that's super cool! Yeah they don't need much, and I agree we won't mention when we were in school but yes yes yes I wish I had all the cool locker stuff to help us organize. I was lucky to have a shelf to put my lunch on LOL 🙂

    I'm in the market for a back pack and I hadn't thought of Staples – thanks! I worry that her current backpack just doesn't provide enough support and cushioning on her shoulders. She doesn't use a laptop yet, but there are so many things in that pack – it's heavy!

      I know my son is this year using a laptop, but I too wanted a great back pack and Staples has tons, especially for girls (pretty colors and patterns) the boys ones are pretty sporty but a little plain for my liking. You have books, lunches, sneakers, change of clothes and so on. It's amazing we don't send them with suitcases! 🙂

      LOL! The sad part is I have seen kids with suitcases! (You know, with a handle so they can spare their back.) I think it makes sense considering all the stuff!
