No-tie shoelaces, penmanship projector and other gadgets for back to school

The new school year is officially upon us!

With the kids heading back to the classroom, that means new routines and schedules for the whole family.

From a backpack that converts into a crossbody purse to an alarm clock that will help you wake up, here are some seriously awesome picks you'll want to get your hands on.
