Well folks, this is it. Chapters Indigo just launched their official back-to-school sale for 2018. And for the next two weeks, select school essentials are 25% off!
No matter if you're shopping for students who are just starting kindergarten or ones who are heading off to high school or college, there are a few things you should pick up (even though they might not be on your supply list).
1. Water bottle
It's important to stay hydrated throughout the school day, and a reusable water bottle is an absolute must-have. For older kids, I love the sleek design of these Fresco Twist & Go Water Bottles. A 20-ounce bottle sells for $22.50 (from $30) – and little kids can sip from a Klean Kanteen Sport-Cap Water Bottle ($20.99 for an 18-ounce one).
2. Bento box
Bento boxes make packing lunches much easier – mostly because you only need to have one container and one lid on hand. I personally love the Monbento Square Bento Box, since it has room to fit an entire meal, it's durable, and it's on sale for $33.75 from $45.
3. Lunch containers
If you're not going the bento box route or if you want separate containers for after-school snacks, separate containers are the way to go. Dash makes some pretty convenient Collapsible Silicone Storage Containers, which you can fold down as soon as they're empty. And right now, you can pick up a set of four for $26.25 from $35.
What good is a delicious lunch if you don't have a spoon or a fork to eat it? Monbento makes reusable cutlery sets that each include a knife, fork and spoon that you can easily slip into any of their bento boxes. They have stainless steel sets ($18.75 from $25), as well as plastic ones that are more suitable for younger kids (for $10.50 from $14).
5. Lunch bag
Once you have a water bottle and all those snack containers, you're going to need something to carry all of them. And if you want an option your kiddos won't grow out of right away, Chapters has this Packit Traveler Lunch Bag for $18.38 and a Top-Handle Lunch Bag for $15.
These deals run until Sept. 2, 2018 (just before the start of the new school year), but there's a good chance that some of the more popular items (I'm looking at you, bento boxes) will sell out before then. So if you see something you love, it's a good idea to grab it ASAP!
Orders over $25 ship free, and you can ship almost any order to a Chapters store for free.
