My Favorite Items for the Back to [Grad]School

As you all may now know, I started my Master's Degree this year in January, and one of my favorite things in the world is shopping for supplies. Whatever I bought this year was a WIN. I loved and used everything that I bought (not like past years that I go crazy buying and then use only 50% of the stuff).

Who doesn't like shopping for school supplies? When I go to Staples, Office Max, or even Amazon.com, I go crazy like a kid in a toy store. I absolutely love everything that has to do with school, office supplies. It makes me sooooo happy haha! Anyway, less talking more showing…

Here are my favorites for school!

1. Swissgear ScanSmart Backpack - This backpack in particular is really convenient for me because I can use it for school, but also to travel. The main compartment is spacious and it has a social pocket for MP3 players (perfect for my iPhone 6) with a small opening for wire head/earphones. The backpack also features a pocket for sunglasses, one for supplies with pen holders, keychain and ID holder, an open-viewing compartment that fit laptops up to 17" with a strap to keep it in place, and it also has a padded pocket for tablets. On the sides there are mesh pockets to hold water bottles and also zipper pockets that are deep great for more pens or umbrellas, like I use it for.


2. Multiple Subject Notebooks - These are the ones I use (Mead Five Star). It is much more organized to only have to carry one notebook, versus 2-4 depending on how may courses you are enrolled in. Another option is binders, but I prefer the classic notebooks for taking notes. One of the pros of this particular notebook is that you can rip the pages, remove the border and you end up having a nice ruled sheet that doesn't look like it was originally ripped from a notebook.
