It’s that time again: Back to school! I know it can be daunting, and not a particularly exciting time, but I find that if you make a day of it, to go out and treat yourself to some nice brand new school supplies, books and stationery. Having cute things to pack in your bag definitely amps up your mood and gets you more excited for back to school, than dreading it.
So today I’m sharing with you guys some things that I picked up recently, with a back to school theme!
Notebooks | I chose a smaller A5 notebook, and a larger A4 notebook, because I like to have plenty of writing paper, but also sometimes I’ll only want to make light notes for a project, but in other classes it’s better to have a larger notebook, where you can go into more depth. I also chose a plain lavender notebook, but I have decorated it myself with these cute stickers!Document Holder | I thought this little folder was not only really cute, but insanely useful. Normally I’ll have a few pieces of paper with important information on them, somewhere. That’s the worst thing, knowing that you’ve got a specific piece of paper that you really need, but you’re not entirely sure just where it is. So I know that this little folder will really help me out, because I can keep all of these stray pieces of paper in one safe place.
Academic Planner | If you’ve gotten to the point in school where you are no longer given a weekly planner, I’d highly recommend getting your hands onto one of these. They follow the academic year as opposed to a regular year, meaning they start in August instead of January, and end in July instead of December!Weekly Planner | I feel that maybe this particular item is a lot more useful for older students who are living on their own for the first time. This handy little magnetic pad can be put on your fridge, and you can write down your plans for the week. Be it classes, events either work-related or social, you can have a visual layout of what the week ahead of you looks like. It’s also available in a meal-planner version, meaning you can plan your meals for the week, combined with a shopping list section so you can shop for the items you’ll need for you planned meals for the week. (Very good for breaking your reliability on microwave and takeaway meals!)Pens, Pencils, Highlighters & Rubbers | These items are probably the most obvious to have. I just thought that these rubbers were insanely cute, so I couldn’t resist them!
And that’s it! I hope this gave you guys some inspiration towards what to get before going back to school. So let’s get excited for seeing friends and a fresh start!
