Back to School Survival Guide


Military Moms Blog, the premier online military parenting website, has created a mom-approved back to school survival guide!

Here at Military Moms Blog, there are few things we love more than providing the absolute best resources for military moms while supporting the businesses and brands we love. And with the school year rapidly approaching, we have put together this MilMB Back to School Survival Guide, a carefully crafted and mom-approved guide specifically sourced for military moms. 

Since we know how many balls busy moms juggle, we have hand-selected brands and products that we know our readers will love. From moms and dads, to children and babies – the Back to School Survival Guide is a curated list of the most needed family items!

Families also can see how they spend time online with Circle’s Usage feature. Circle with Disney even gives parents a pause button for the Internet. 



Say goodbye to chalkboard disasters and get beautiful back to school photos and memories with easy printables.

Plum Print transforms piles of children’s artwork into beautiful, custom coffee-table books.

Plum Print makes the process super easy; it sends a prepaid box to your doorstep, and you simply fill it with artwork. You then receive an online book proof to flip through and approve.

Clear the clutter while celebrating your artist!


Are you a Mom who appreciates comfort and relies heavily on humor (not to mention copious amounts of coffee) to get through your chaotic day?

Have you recently looked in the mirror (cheerios in hair) and wondered when you last had a shower, decent sleep, or a reason to put some makeup on?

Grins & Grace believes it’s time to be comfy, poke some fun at the chaos of motherhood, and live that sweatpants life proudly!
