back to school essentials

Unfortunately, school is coming up…I start tomorrow :( Anyways, I wanted to give you guys a list of my back to school essentials so that you can make sure you have everything you need for school!

  • Notebooks – Five Star makes really good quality notebooks.
  • Folders – I highly suggest getting the plastic folders, not the paper ones! The paper ones rip/break much faster than the plastic ones.
  • Binders – Helps keep all your papers in one place!
  • Pens & pencils & erasers – Duh.
  • Pencil pouch – For the pens & pencils & erasers.
  • Planner – So you stay organized. I got mine from TJ Maxx, but Target makes really really really cute ones!!
  • Filler paper – Or loose leaf paper. Whatever you call it.
  • Highlighters – To help you make key ideas stand out.
  • Post its – Helpful when you need to jot down ideas.
  • Index cards – SOOOO GOOD FOR STUDYING.
  • Backpack – Almost forgot about this one, lol. Herschel and Jansport make really good ones.
  • Tide to go – If you’re like me and spill food on yourself 24/7, this will be a lifesaver.
  • Oil blotting sheets – So you always look fantastic. But you still look fantastic without these ;)
  • Mints/gum – Because no one likes smelly breath.
  • Tissues – You never know when you’ll have to blow your nose in class!
  • Reusable water bottle – Help save the earth♡
  • Portable charger – A LIFESAVER.
  • A smile – yeah, school sucks, I know. But you have no choice so just make the most of it :)
