School Supplies I Can't Live Without

Hey cupcakes! Now that the semester has started, I have gotten back into the swing of school. I actually enjoy learning and studying, so I thought I would share my "must-have" school supplies with you all today! These all allow me to do really well in my courses, so I hope they will inspire you to work hard this year :)

~Planner: I am a huge fan of an actual paper planner to keep track of my homework, meetings, work schedules, etc. While your phone can send you reminders, I like to have my week and following week laid out in front of me so that I can plan out my time in the most efficient way possible. If you want to see what specific planner I use, check out my Setting Up a New Planner 101 post!

~Highlighters: Highlighters are a lifesaver when you are doing long readings! Instead of taking notes from my textbooks, I have found that highlighting them will allow me to remember the main points when I am studying for exams (make sure they aren't rentals though!). You can also get multiple colors if you like :)

~Blank colored paper: This may seem like an odd one, but I love to use blank colored computer paper to make study guides for myself. I find that the color makes my brain remember it more!

~Spotify: While not technically a "school supply", Spotify is my go-to when I need to buckle down and be productive. I love listening to music soundtracks or nature sounds to stay focused.

~Colored pens: Some of my professors will print out the slides for the day (or I will print them if they are posted online), which means pencil looks too bland on the page. Using colored pens in bright colors is super beneficial to me, as I am able to remember things better.

  1. I love proper planners too! There’s something about starting a new one that gets me all excited. I also adore pastel highlighters. They’re my new obsession x

    1. Oh my gosh, I don't have any pastel one! I should definitely get some :)
