Supplies c/o Office Depot

So, here it goes. One last semester of undergrad until I am launched into the world of 9-5's and complete independence. I can't say exactly how I feel about finishing this chapter of my life, but I am determined to make this semester one of the best yet. This all starts with setting goals, getting organized, and preparing myself for the work that is to come. 

With six classes, two jobs, and one big city to tackle this semester, I cannot afford to neglect organization. The easiest way to get started is with some back-to-school supply shopping, a.k.a. every girl's favorite school-related summer activity. I recently picked up these adorable supplies from Office Depot's new collection that both satisfy my blogger aesthetic needs and keep everything organized for a successful semester:



1. Essential Paper Organizers. There is no doubt that a new school year means a new seemingly endless pile of papers on your desk. This is where the right binder-notebook-folder combination comes in handy to avoid losing any important documents by the end of the semester. I like to color-coordinate my supplies by class, making these white/gold products by Divoga especially useful.

2. Trusty Writing Utensils. Raise your hand if you also finish each school year with one out of the twelve pens you started with. In an attempt to break the trend this semester, I'm counting on these See Jane Work pens to stick by my side with their unique designs that add a touch of personality to my supply collection.

3. Pencil Case. Another way to ensure that you keep the utensils you start with is by using a durable pencil pouch. Keep your writing essentials in one place for guaranteed organization, and make a style statement while doing so with bold metallics. 

4. Binder & Paper Clips. It's always fun to add some personal style to your work, and this assortment of binder and paper clips does just the trick. I especially use these for combining documents from every new textbook chapter, and the addition of pops of color and metallics just makes that extra work a little more fun. 


What are your essentials for successful organization? Let me know in the comments below! I wish those of you getting back into school a fantastic new year!
