And for every ounce of excitement I had for the new school supplies displays at Target or Walmart, my brother had equal or greater animosity toward them. My amazing mom would go to great lengths to shield my him from the glare of brand new notebooks, or the smell of freshly displayed crayons. Yes, in order to keep his summer happier (and ours by association) she would go the long way around the store to get what she needed and get us out of there content and none the wiser. Meltdown averted. Go Mom.
Another very important back to school "buy" was the all-important lunch box. That brings us to my top picks for lunch boxes this year, and though they will never top my plastic "Popple" one, these are pretty awesome. Plus, you don't have to be a kid to enjoy a well packed, highly stylish lunch.
Pottery Barn Kids.

Personalized! This might be my favorite. Get it at Girly Twirly for $36.00.
