Three Back to School Essentials!

Whether you are going back as a student, teacher or parent, take a look at these three essentials to live a more organized life this school year!

Be Colorful!

Paper Mate has come out with these fantastic Quick-Drying InkJoy Gel Pens just in time for back-to-school! With vivid gel ink that dries 3x faster for reduced smearing, it’s like a party on the page where the smudges aren’t invited. If you are a lefty, you know the struggle; you take copious notes, turn the page and turn your wrist to see ink smudges all over your hand! No bueno! These brilliant gel ink pens brighten all of your notes and help to keep you super organized!

Write it Down!

Now that you have these amazing, colorful pens, you need a place to write down your notes! Make sure you have a sturdy notebook to write down homework, notes, lists, etc. I buy my notebooks from HomeGoods and Staples, but you can find pretty ones anywhere!

Stay Organized!

At the end of the day, you will need a spot to put all of your assignments, notes, papers, etc. Why not stock up on some pretty folders? I found these at HomeGoods and they are perfect for organizing my life! I wish I had something like this when I was in school!
