Thank you Master Lock for sponsoring today’s post.
The back to school season is upon us already! It is crazy. Summer flew by for our family, what about yours? We are starting our first official year of homeschool. We did homeschool preschool for two years, but it wasn’t regimented by any means. So this year we decided to purchase a complete Kindergarten kit from a Christian schooling company. It is official Kindergarten homeschool is about to begin.
I know that with schooling at home, we don’t have to worry about the safety of our daughter’s belongings like parents who send their children to a public or private school might have to. But we do take precautions to keep our home safe. Since our home is now officially school as well, I am thankful for the locks on our doors, passwords on our electronics, and safe for our personal effects that we own.

How do you keep your child’s belongings safe during the school year?
I can definitely think of uses for this lock!! Just day to day traveling around in the car–and all those valuable papers I have just lying around.
We will for sure be using this portable safe for travel. If my daughter was in public school, I’d let her use it too.

I could def find lots of uses for this awesome lock! Thanks so much for sharing!
With the way stuff gets stolen these days (no one is to be trusted), you definitely need a sturdy lock. Sounds like MasterLock is the way to go!
Stealing is becoming more and more prevalent in schools. It is crazy. If my daughter was in public school, I’d send her to school with a Master Lock for sure!
That lock box would be great for dorm rooms. I would even like to keep one in my car.
Wow, that master lock is so futuristic looking! They’ve come a long way since I was in school, haha. I agree with Angela about having that lock box in the car.

I don’t have to worry about this this year but I’m sure I’ll have to when my girl gets to middle school. She’s only in the 1st grade this year. Wow, locks have become so user-friendly.
These are great to have on hand for so many things! I could totally use one actually right now.
