Summer is drawing to a close, and families, teachers, and even people who don’t have kids and do not teach, are starting to prepare for another school year, and this preparation comes in the form of back-to-school shopping.

Aside from the dedicated teachers that struggle to make ends meet, there are also the families struggling to pay their bills and buy new school supplies for their children.
There are a lot of big, unwieldy, anxiety-inducing problems facing the world right now, but sending a kid to school with a new backpack and sharp pencils to start the year off right is a lot easier to manage than solving global warming on your lunch break.
