Back to school is a stressful time for all parents, and here at CGMagazine, we understand your pain and have a neat CGM Recommends Back-to-School list for the 2023 school semester.

Every year comes in strong and goes out with a school semester. The same goes double for working parents, college students, and even working parent-college students. We here at CGMagazine understand very well how easy it is to feel strapped for time, so we have established a CGM Recommends Back-to-School 2023 list.

CGMagazine works with the best tech year in and year out, so it is safe to say we crammed for the occasion. This year we did the homework, so you don’t have to, and for the glorious 2023 school year, here is our CGM Recommends Back-to-School for 2023.
