Back to School: Supplies

I thought that I would start off the first week of August by doing a back to school series. Today, I will be sharing with you guys my absolute essentials when it comes to supplies. Be sure to stay tuned this week for the rest of my back to school series!

1. A Backpack

Obviously everyone needs a backpack to carry all of their supplies in! I used to have a Northface backpack, but I honestly hated it because it was literally reflective. I always joked with my friends that they could see me coming from a mile away. To solve that problem, I purchased a new backpack that I am so excited to start using! It is from Patagonia and I love the way it fits and the overall style of it.

2. Pens

Since I am in college, I take most of my notes on my computer, but in some classes I take notes by hand. If that's the case, these pens are my saving grace. I'm not kidding when I say that they changed my handwriting. They are an overall thin pen that makes your handwriting instantly look neater. You guys have to try these out!

3. Expanding Folder

I've taken 15 hours each semester and am doing so again this upcoming semester. 15 hours means 5 classes, so a folder like this is perfect for keeping your syllabuses, handouts or anything else that your professor hands out. It is also nice because this never leaves my backpack, so I never have to worry about grabbing the wrong folder. I got mine in the $1 at Target, but regardless these are always really affordable!

4. Portable Charger

If you are to get one things off of this list, get a portable phone charger. My friends always joke that I would totally win the "phones most likely dying" award. My phone literally is always dying! But I started carrying this in my backpack and it has totally saved me. I charge it every couple of days, so when I need it, it is ready to go.

5. Emergency Bag

I would also recommend keeping an "emergency" bag with you. Next year I will be living in an apartment off campus, so I will no longer have the luxury of running home if I need something. All I do is use a little makeup bag and I fill it with all of my "emergency" items. I typically keep tampons, hair ties, Advil, tide to go, hand sanatizer, things like that. You will be shocked at how much you use this!

I know that you all are probably not looking forward to getting back into school mode, but I assure you that if you have these things, you will be a-ok!
