Go Back to School with Masterlock #MasterBacktoSchool

This post is sponsored post brought to you in partnership with Global Influence. All opinions are 100% my own.

You guys, I can't believe school is starting in just a few weeks! My little guy will be officially starting kindergarten, and the accountability of homeschooling "for real" honestly feels a bit daunting. Curriculum has been ordered and enrollment in extracurricular activities has been completed. There are still many lessons and days to plan out down the line, but we're ready for the most part. Our grand adventure is about to begin!

Since we're homeschooling, keeping valuables safe at school isn't really an issue for my family. However, we do have several outside activities where sports equipment and my own belongings may be at risk such as my purse and cell phone. Did you know that nearly half of North American parents admitted that their child has had an item stolen from them at school, with the most valuable being their cell phone?* Yikes!

For over 90 years, Master Lock has been providing innovative security solutions for your home, car, campus, store security needs and more. They are the world's largest manufacturer and recognized leader of padlocks and related security products on the market today. As your kids head back-to-school this fall, Master Lock wants to help families live more safely and securely by offering a great selection of stylish, secure, and customizable products to meet your needs. Your student will be back-to-school savvy with Master Lock.

After some really neat product releases in recent years like the dialSpeed digital padlock, this year Master Lock has introduced new colors inspired by the fall 2014 PANTONE Fashion Color Report. How fun!

Master Lock offers a lot of back-to-school gadgets. For a lock, check out the 1500eDBX dialSpeed Digital Combination Lock. With an electronic light-up keypad, this high-tech gadget even stores multiple resettable guest codes. It has a sleek, ergonomic design for one-handed, no-look operation for ultrafast entry to lockers and other equipment needing safe storage.

For older kids up to college age, the 5900D SafeSpace Portable Safe is the answer to keeping valuables stored and secure at school. We received this safe last year, and this year also from Master Lock, and I think it's the coolest thing! This is a personal-sized safe that can store your cell phone, camera, jewelry, keys, passport, sunglasses, MP3 player and other small valuables while on-the-go. There's an integrated cable that can be anchored to a fixed object, or can be used as a handle when carrying. The portability factor is awesome.
