I know, I know it is is still technically “SUMMER” but I just get so excited with the whole back to school thing. Every year I get so pumped to buy new school supplies and re-invent my fall wardrobe.So I thought it would be fun to give you all a sneak peak of my back to school BACKPACK ESSENTIALS. I am generally quite a nosy person, so looking inside other people backpacks is fun for me…. am I weird?
What’s in my backpack.
I am in College now, so my packing for the day is a bit lighter than it was when I was in high school. I don’t have to lug around 4 textbooks, 2 binders, a lunch and everything else under the sun. For my schedule starting in September, I only have 1- 2 classes a day, so I have time to run home in between, letting me eat lunch at home as well as I can drop of books.
Having a planner is super important for me to stay organized and to make lists. I am a little OCD when i comes to lists, but they help me organize my thoughts of what I have to accomplished for day, week etc.
Mechanical Pencils, high lighter, glue stick, stapler.
Am I the only one that can’t stand normal sharpener pencils? I just hate using them. Since I was 10 year old I made the switch and I can’t say enough how great they are. Having a highlighter is also important since it is very handy for every subject. A MINI STAPLER is possibly the greatest thing ever. With this you can skip the long line-ups at the front of the classroom. And just to let you know in college there are no staplers to be found so they are pretty handy dandy.
Handy, dandy notebook.
Having just simple notebooks like this for each subject can really help you stay organized with your notes for each class.
Hand lotion is one of essentials to carry in my back pack. I have very dry skin so this is always great to have with me.
Having any form of moisturizer for my lips is essential for the fall and winter time. My lips can instantly get dry and cracked when I got out in chillier weather. Give this brand a try!
A pouch for your girly things.
Having any sort of a little pouch like this is essential if you are a girl. This is perfect to put your girl products in so you do not have to take your whole backpack with you to the washroom during class.
A healthy snack.
An essential that I carry in my backpack is always a healthy snack. I constantly am hungry, like a black hole. So bringing a snack with me, makes me lessen my chance of going to the wending machine for some chips. Blueberries are my favorite food ever what are yours?
Carrying a bottle of water with me at all times is essential for me. I used to not drink enough at school and get very bad headaches in the afternoon. Now I make sure to always have one with me, to stay hydrated and alert. Believe me it helps!
I hope you enjoyed!
