Back to School with Staples

StaplesWe love Staples!  It’s one of our MUST stops during the back-to-school season.  I love all the bins filled with not just amazing deals, but also amazing and cute selections!  They’ve got you covered with everything from basic supplies to computers.  I recently got schooled on how to select a new computer by their knowledgeable staff.  For a solid notebook for back to school, the HP Pavilion 11 TouchSmart was highly recommended to fit our family’s needs. It’s the most affordable HP touch-enabled notebook and is great for work and play. It’s also super affordable at $399.99.  I was eying the HP Envy x2, a convertible laptop/tablet, perfect for a woman on-the-go like me! For the times I’m traveling, I can quickly detach the keyboard and voila – tablet! And for the times I am working at home, it’s a lightweight and fully functional laptop. What’s also great is that there are two batteries, one for the tablet and another for the keyboard dock.

Teachers and parents can now find these items at select Staples stores – including one near you – and on
