5 Pinterest Boards to Help You Get Ready for Back-to-School

It’s hard to believe it’s almost time for kids to go back to school. Believe me. I know. My wife is a high school teacher, and there’s only days until she goes back to the classroom. Pinterest can be a great resource for helping parents and students shop for back-to-school items — from new clothes to school supplies. Beginning Aug. 1, the social network added a new feature that alerts you when the price drops after you pin a product pin.

Here are five Pinterest boards to serve you up some back-to-school inspiration:
