You have no items in your shopping cart.
This one's for everyone getting ready to go back to school - and in person! It's been a while since we've had to enter a classroom but I've put together a simplified list of some of my tried and true back-to-school necessities that I hope will help you get back into your groove this fall!
1. A groovy backpack to store it all in
This one seem's pretty intuitive, but as I like to say, you can't have anything without starting with your basics! Growing up, my backpack was my way of leaving my mark on campus so feel free to choose one that speaks to you :) Nowadays there are SO many fun prints, colors, shapes and sizes so the sky is truly your limit!
2. Stay organized with a planner
I remember I got my first planner back in middle school - ahh the good old days ;) They were provided to us at the start of every year and I loved getting a new one to fill up! This helped me find through trial and error how to best use one, and now it's the first thing I reach for everyday. You can find anything from a weekly planner to a yearly one, equipped with places you can jot down school notes, social & personal plans, to-do lists and appointments! This way you can stay organized all year long :)
3. A pencil pouch... that carries more than just a pencil
Now if only I had a dollar for every time I reach for my pencil pouch in my own backpack... I'd be pretty set! A great pencil pouch is truly the foundation for a great day on campus - stash it with your favorite pencils, pens, markers and highlighters, sticky notes (perfect to jot down things you might need to add to your planner later!), erasers, white out, ballpoint pens... you probably get where I'm going here. The point is, you can carry just about anything you might need in your pencil pouch!
4. Hydration is key, but make it eco-friendly
Did you know that drinking water is thought to help with studying, concentration, and scoring higher on exams?! That should be reason enough to remember to carry your H2O with you to school but in case you needed one more, there are hundreds of cute reusable bottles you can use! My favorites are the ones with a straw and they get bonus points because it makes it easy to sip on water throughout your class underneath a mask ;)
5. Stay squeaky clean wherever you go
Not much needed to say here, especially during these times! I carry a travel sized hand sanitizer bottle with me and some Clorox wipes to keep both my hands and my surrounding surfaces clean at all times. They also come in handy to wipe down your desk, writing tools, laptop, or water bottle if necessary!
And there you have it - the necessities for any great school year, simplified. It may not be everything you carry, but it's a great foundation and we can't wait to hear what else you include in the comments below! Like always, make sure to check out our latest blog post here!
