Top 5 Tuesday: School Supplies!

School is starting back up in just one week! Although I'm bummed that Steven has to go back to PA, I'm excited to get another semester under my belt AND...it's baseball season :)

I'm linking up with Rachel this week to share my Top 5 Favorite School Supplies!

1. Agenda

I wasn't as committed to my agenda in high school as I am now, but that's because I wasn't as busy. I am addicted to it during the year, now! This year I have the Lilly agenda. I like it but can see myself changing after this semester.  Of course I am oohing and aahing over an Erin Condren planner but I've also heard a lot about the ones from Sweet Tea Paperie! Decisions, decisions...

2. Pens

I have two absolute favorites...


I love using my Staedtler pens for my agenda. I have the larger pack so I have plenty of colors to organize everything in! Sharpie pens are AMAZING. They seriously don't bleed through the paper and they last for a long time. I love using these for notes/anything. I keep them in my purse, backpack, on my desk...everywhere. I just wish they would come out in more colors!

3. Post-its & Notepads
I have a slight obsession with post-its and notepads, just as I have an obsession with stationary. I think I could go the rest of my college career without buying any more, but let's be honest, I will!

4. Index Cards
When I have an upcoming quiz or exam, I always make flashcards. I really feel like they help! Not only do I get a good review as I'm writing down the information, but I then have the cards to take me with wherever I go for "on-the-go" studying, which is very convenient.

5. My Backpack(s)

Yes, I'm still a backpack girl! Every once in a while I carry a tote, but most days I use my backpack. This was the first backpack I used in high school/college:

North Face Jester Backpack in Red

Then, this past year, I got this Vera backpack! I love it and honestly it makes going to class 10 times better. The only down side is that there isn't a holder large enough for a water bottle. However, I love that is has a slot specifically for my laptop!

Vera Bradley Laptop Backpack in Folkloric

This morning I did lots of grocery shopping, errands with Steven, then came home and made Taco Soup that I found on Steph's blog! I am SO excited for dinner! Yum!

Now we're watching Moneyball. I saw it in theaters, but Steven hasn't seen it yet so we got it from Redbox.

Happy Tuesday :)


  1. I love my Lilly planner, too! And Folkloric is my favorite VB print. I love that backpack!

  2. you are featured on my blog today, make sure to stop by :)

  3. You are too cute! I never once got this excited over school supplies. ;o) But I do get pretty serious about my planners. I stay super busy and the only way I can organize everything is by having one heck of a yearly planner. I'm definitely looking to try out the Erin Condren ones, but I didn't know about them before I already bought mine for this year! :o(

  4. Your Vera Bradley backpack is in the same pattern I have been dying to have for a duffle bag. It's on my birthday wish list! Love it. I totally agree with having a planner, pens, index cards, post-it's...they make it all the better. For me atleast, so I'm with ya! ;)

  5. I NEED those pens for my new agenda too! Ditched my Lilly one for a new Sweet Tea Paperie one and it finally arrived- will be posting about it tomorrow! I hope it lives up to my expectations! Yay for school starting!

  6. So I've learned to buy good however early. I layout the sales pages and my kids' faculty provide lists along and take a look at to seek out the most effective spot to buy and I prepared to have discount school supply .

  7. Oh my gosh!

    I LOVE school supplies (to the point where it's a little weird) so when I saw this post it made my heart smile :)
