Over the years through trial and error I have learned exactly what I need for a successful start to a school year. There are certain items that I have to have to stay organized while in school. Here is my list of school essentials:
Sharpie Pens. I'm kind of a pen snob and there are only a few pens that I will use. I love these pens because they write thick and don't bleed through paper. They also look really neat when you are rereading notes.
I love these Five Star notebooks because they are technically spiral notebooks but they have this amazing canvas cover over the spiral wiring so it doesn't get snagged on anything while in your bag and unravel. Amazing.
I love planners and calendars and agenda books. Forreal, it's kind of weird. I usually have two agendas that I use at all times. I really like this Lilly Pulitzer agenda book because its pretty, and it also provides sufficient space to write down everything you need to do. It also comes with pretty stickers and a place to write down important dates and addresses.
I love carrying a tote bag to class but there are some days when I can't because I have to carry so many books. I bought this backpack two years ago and can't complain! It's comfy and it usually has enough room to hold everything I need although there has been an occasion where I ran out of space. Overall it's a good backpack though.
You know those teachers that pass out a million handouts and expect you to keep up with them and be able to find them at any given moment. Yeah, those teachers are awesome. I found these divider tabs last year and love them. They are sturdy and allow for maximum organization of the millions of papers handed out.
I love index cards and I use them for everything, bookmarks, to-do lists, grocery lists, study notes etc. I keep these on me at all times and I love color coordinating my notes on my index cards
What are some of your need to have items for school?
