When I was a kid, my favorite part of the whole year was back-to-school shopping. Some kids loved summer break, others were all about Christmas, but me? Late summer all the way. It wasn’t about the clothes either. I was 100% all about the new notebooks, trapper keepers, crayons and pencils. I still am!
I was at Target last week giving major side eye to the school supply section. Why do kids get to have all the fun? You know what? They don’t. Being an adult is even cooler because I can buy all the supplies I want with no teachers to say what I can’t and can’t have or mom do argue with me over the practicality of a certain item (love you mom!). Let’s go school supply shopping ya’ll!
Here’s my must-have supplies this year:
–Pretty notebooks. I’m really old school—I still like to take all my notes on paper. I have a notebook (or two) with me at all times. Long live paper! Plus, with covers like these…they double as art. 😀
–Pens. Guess what? As a grown up, you can write in any color ink you want. Let that sink in. No more black or blue only (unless that’s what you want!). Pink, purple, sparkles…it’s all a-okay.
–Folders. You know, to be responsible and file things. Or just to look at.
–Pencil case. These are adorable and can be used for carting all kinds of stuff—I like putting make-up in them to throw in my bag if I’m running late.
–Tape dispenser. Okay, I totally own this and am obsessed. How cute is this little guy? Bonus—it’s gold!
–Stapler. Mainly because it’s gold.
–Scissors. So many cute styles, but these look great.
Who’s ready to go back to school (wah, or work?)? 😀
