I move into college in 10 days and I still can’t believe it. I haven’t begun packing yet which I should probably start doing! I have always loved school supply shopping mainly because it is just fun and a way to get excited about the upcoming school year. I did have a lot of stuff leftover from last year and I have already bought some things so hear is what I got:
Notebooks and Folders
I have never been one for binders mainly because they are bulky and take up too much space. I like to be organized and have a set of things for each class so I can keep everything separated. I got a notebook as well as a matching color folder for each class to make it easy to keep track of which supplies are for which class. I always get my notebooks and folders from the Five Star brand mainly because they last me the entire school year and are made of good quality plastic so they do not rip or fall apart!
I absolutely love writing my notes in pen mainly because it is easy on my hand and makes note taking easy. My favorite pens are the Pilot G2 gel pens in the .07mm tip. These pens glide and last a long time and are just my favorite pens to use. I got two packs or three black ones as well as a multi color pack because I do like to color code my notes!
I love studying vocabulary and terms using notecards because it is an easy and effective way for me to remember things. In the past I have used the app Quizlet which I highly recommend if you don’t want to lug around a bunch of notecards! It’s a free flash card app that has a lot of different subjects and flashcards you can search that were created by different people.
Scissors, Whiteout, Glue
I thought I would need these things just because you never know when you are going to get assigned a project or something where you need to get a little crafty. I absolutely love Whiteout mainly because I like my notes to look clean and mistake free.
These are one of the things I had leftover from last year mainly because I never really used them. This year I plan to use them to study and take notes from my textbooks just as a visual way to keep my information organized and informative.
Pencils and Pencil Pouch
I absolutely hate writing in pencil and will only do it when required to. Getting a pencil pouch allows me to keep all my pens, highlighters and pencils together and organized. It is easy to pull out in class and carry around wherever you go.
I mentioned in my dorm haul that I had got a planner, it is a simple Blue Skies planner in the pink marble design. I hope this will keep me organized and I plan to write down everything I need to know or remember in it as a way to stay on top of things and achieve my goal of getting a 4.0 this semester.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post and found it helpful!
