BLOW Paper Shelves by YOY

We’re seeing the illusion of movement trending in furniture design, decor, fashion and photography. The latest spotting are these cleverly designed BLOW shelves that have been created with a romantic wind-swept concept from a Japanese 19th century woodblock print titled Travelers Caught In a Gust Of Breeze in Ejiri. Each shelf is molded from an A4-sized thin sheet of steel to resemble a piece of flying paper and together form a mesmerizing sight of papers blowing in the breeze.

Top Back to School Shopping Tips

stack_of_books

Ok folks here are our top selected Back to School Shopping Tips from http://www.parenting.com.  This is without a doubt one of those times where any little amount of help will do…

Hold off buying trendier gear like lunch boxes and pencil cases. Kids may love a version they find in July, but once they start school and see that their friends are all using another kind, they’ll beg you to upgrade them — and that only results in wasted cash.

Shop end-of-season sales. You know as well as we do that kids wear short sleeve polo shirts all year long, so hit the big summer sales and snap up discounted duds that can be worn well into autumn.

Stick to The List. The teacher’s supply list at the start of a new school year is daunting enough so don’t waste time and money on unlisted items. Extra supplies, while they may be cute, will probably never get used and just leave your pockets empty.

Head to the supermarket for basic supplies. Check weekly circulars for great deals on pens and loose-leaf paper, and get your weekly grocery shopping done at the same time. Bonus: buying everything in one place will save time and gas money!

Let your kids raid the home-office supplies, then personalize them in unique ways. For example, decorate inexpensive plain, white binders with digital photos by creating a collage and inserting the page into the plastic outer cover.

Host a back-to-school swap. Round up a couple of other moms with kids the same gender as yours but different ages, and host an annual clothes swap. Trade toys and books, too! You’ll save a bundle.

Plan lunch. When you’re in charge of what your child eats, you’ll save yourself money. Check the weekly circulars at your local supermarkets for sales. If turkey isn’t on sale one week and ham is, go for the ham!

Buy bright. Lost school supplies may be a given, but gear that’s hard to miss can stave off the inevitable. Pack all their pencils, erasers, and other goodies into a bright backpack or pencil pouch to keep them from disappearing.

Happy Shopping!
