Back To School With Mead Five Star® #STRENGTHNOTSTRESS

We love working with amazing brands that we have repeat projects with. Every year since I have been blogging I have worked with Mead Five Star on a review for our back to school guide and this year is no exception. They sent us some of their coolest stuff to show all of you for this upcoming school year.

I have loved their products since I was a kid in school. Their dependability and durability are a complete match to the superior quality. Trapper Keepers were just cool. They had bright colors and kept everything in one place. What's not to love?

Five Star® offers so many ways for students to stay organized and prepared for the whole school year.

The blogger program came with four awesome products to keep your student organized and prepared for the whole school year,

The Five Star® 3-Inch Binder New for 2018, with removable padded case, comes with a five-tab expanding file and so much more.

The 5 tab expanding file is built in on the outside front pocket. This is a great place to put all of the handouts like assignments, notes to parents, extra paper, and even completed assignments waiting to be turned in. The tabs allow for inserts so they can be changed as the classes change. The velcro flap keeps it all from sliding out. Awesome organizing!

The removable padded pouch protects tablets or small laptops and includes a puncture-resistant micro-mesh zipper pocket, for easy storage of pens, pencils, calculator, ruler, and all of the other smaller things. It can be taken out for easy toting in between classes.

The large 3-inch binder rings open and closes securely to add paper and notebooks for all of the classes for the year. The binder is a great place to store and organize everything for a students schedule.

This binder has an amazing 850 sheet capacity.

This binder offers a removable strap that adjusts for a cross shoulder or backpack style wearing. In so many ways this 3-Inch Binder can replace a backpack.

1" Inch Hybrid Notebinder

The Notebinder is a mashup of a notebook and a binder. When opening its cover, there are 5 pocket dividers. 2 of the dividers have short pockets with a corner protector and a pocket right on the divider. 3 of the dividers are full-length pockets with built-in tabs and flaps to keep the papers in.

The rings in the Notebinder are guaranteed to last all year! It is preloaded with 60 lined sheets and 20 graph sheets of paper and has a sheet capacity of 200 sheets.

1 Inch College Ruled Notebook

This one subject notebook is so much more than just a notebook. It looks like a notebook but has built-in folder pocket storage and a pocket for small paper storage like index cards.

In the back of the notebook, there is a table of contents, custom fill, and fold out- a reference guide for customized note taking.

Filler Paper

In addition to the awesome Notebook, Notebinder, and 3-Inch Binder, they sent along reinforced filler paper. The unique triangle holes and stronger reinforcement tape to resist tearing.  It allows for easy turning and resists ink bleed.

This is everything a student needs to stay organized and prepared for their class schedule this year.

  1. I remember the feeling I got every year, buying new school supplies, lol. Even though I didn't want to go back, I loved buying new notebooks, etc. Mead was always a favorite.

  2. I loved Five Star binders and notebooks when I was a kid! They were always the most durable and have the best features. I am so glad that they are still around for my kids to use now!

  3. this thing is so cool! i think i'll need to pick one up.
