In honor of the glorious back to school season, I’m THRILLED to be offering a giveaway for a Five Star® 2” Zipper Binder + Expansion Pocket and the Five Star® Expandable Backpack.

I had to say YES when asked to review and giveaway these products because
1. I love school and office supplies
2. I love Mead and their line of products, especially Five Star & Trapper Keeper
3. I’m as interested in the products for myself as I am for my kids!

Let me tell you, these two products did not disappoint. Not only are they as durable as I’ve come to expect and appreciate with the Five Star line, but with ample pockets and thoughtful storage, they’ve truly made organization a snap.

Just check out the Five Star features:

FiveStar® 2” Zipper Binder + Expandable Pocket


oThe expandable compartment allows for quick textbook access and storage, while the stretchable bands allow for more storage capacity when extra storage is needed and zipped up when it isn’t.

o For enhanced portability, the Five Star® 2” Zipper Binder + ExpandablePocket features an adjustable strap that gives students the option of either carrying the binder on their back or messenger style –it’s their choice.


o To stay organized and efficient, the five-pocket expanding file creates additional storage for handouts. There is also a softly-lined, padded pocket for a tablet.

o Color options available: Red, Blue, Purple, Dark Gray

Five Star® Expandable Backpack


o The front pocket and main compartments of the Five Star® Patent-Pending Expandable Backpack expand to create seven inches of extra storage that every student can use.

o It has comfortable, ergonomic straps that distribute weight, allowing heavy loads to be carried with ease.

o The Expandable Backpack also features an extra-large main compartment to easily accommodate Mead® and Five Star® school supplies. There is a separate padded laptop compartment as well.


o Constructed from water-resistant materials, other features found in the Expandable Backpack include a patented curved zipper allowing for side access while hanging in a locker, an organization pocket for small items, and a side mesh water bottle pocket.

o Color options available:Berry, Dark Gray, Cobalt
