Back to School

Starting or going back to school, college or university can be a daunting experience but the storage and organisation side of if doesn't need to feel like that. Tick off some of the back-to-school necessities on your shopping list with some products from our wide selection.


When it comes to packed lunches we've got a great selection to suit all ages. Our Lego lunch range is sure to be a hit with the littles, our colourful lunch box with the teens and our clear plastic airtight containers with those who prefer something a little plainer. We've also got drinking bottles, a banana guard, kiwi fruit keeper, cupcake box and more.

At school:

Organisation at school is really important to ensure that stationery, notepads etc are close to hand. We offer a few different pencil cases but two of them I especially love; one that attaches to the front of a notebook and one where the lid doubles up as a ruler and a place to hold your phone! We also stock a stationery organiser belt for the front of a notebook, a notebook tidy and a felt organiser with velcro ties.

At home:

Trying to keep a tidy home once the back-to-school routine is in full force is really important. With school, college and university comes extra clothes, bags, papers, books etc. Our backpack hanger is an ideal addition to any space allowing bags and pouches to be kept neatly in one place. If you're looking for something to sort daily bits and pieces into then our Really Useful tower is the one for you. It comes with 5 drawers making it ideal for organising items needed for each of the weekdays. I also need to shout about our magnetic weekly desk planner here as well which allows you to keep track of who has what, when and where! And finally, our wide range of file boxes, suspension boxes, fibreboard drawers etc are ideal for storing away paperwork and books whilst still looking stylish.

At APfE you are sure to find so many other products that will offer a helping hand when settling back into school, college or university, I've just picked out some of my favourites and what I think to be the most useful.
