Back to school: Replenishing supplies

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

News 12's Michelle Ross met with a lifestyle expert who takes the stress out of back-to-school shopping and shares the hottest, new items for kindergarteners up to high schoolers.

Limor Suss suggests online shopping to maximize the last few days off from school before it starts up again. With plenty of vibrant colors and designs available, kids can integrate their style not just into their wardrobe, but also into their pens, binders, staplers and so much more. Affordable outfits can easily be found at Burlington.

For writing tools, Suss recommends Crayola's new "Take Note!" line that includes washable gel pens and erasable highlighters.

Children's favorite cartoon characters can be found on binders and folders, available for 15 percent off through the end of the month from Avery.com.

For lunchtime, there are unicorn- or puppy-adorned lunchboxes that feature multiple compartments in an insulated space. There are also convenient products from Built New York, like a bento box for older kids.

And finally, thermal hydration water bottles can keep drinks cool for 24 hours or warm for six hours.
