I know it sounds crazy to say this, but one of the things my mom taught me that I'll never forget is not to walk out of the house in sweats. I know it sounds weird but it stuck with me.

Back To School-High School Must Haves

I always loved back to school shopping, and quite frankly still do. However, the transitional years are always the ones that are most exciting and scary all at the same time.
