Prep School: School Supplies

True, it's August, but that also implies that it's back to school time-for both high school & college students alike.

While my school days are behind me {thankfully} I wanted to do this post for a few reasons:
  • Working from home/my desk I am always in need of desk supplies & necessities for my home office-Back-to-School time there is an abundance of cute supplies & lots of sales!
  • Share what items I always kept in my desk & back pack all through my schooling years to stay organized & get those As...ha ha 
  • Lastly, this a a collaborative blog post with Nika  {she's new to blogging} but has a darling IG feed & her blog, Prepnc24--&she's in school so be sure to see her school supply take as well!

As for my office supply & back-to-school picks scroll on!
  • Agenda/Calendar-I have a few calendars {no, I prefer paper opposed to digital} that I use for work & another solely for my blog-of course, Lilly has the prettiest selection   

  •  Pencils/Pens. Now is the time to stock up on pencils & pens-each year the selection gets cuter & cuter-can't let the kids have all the fun!

  • Backpacks. No, I don't carry a backpack daily, but having a roomy {&pretty} one comes in handy for toting blog /camera equipment as well as for travel. The quilted Vera Bradley bag pictured here I often take to NYC & other trips with me.  So, it's multi-functional.

  • Notepads & Card-Stock. I am always writing notes to myself & reminders so paper & paper filing systems help me stay organized.  & If you like colorful/preppy desk supplies, Southern Girl Prep has an assortment. 

Whether you're still in school or out hopefully you'll find these necessities helpful to staying organized & successful. Be sure to see Nika's post as well!
