It’s that time of year back to school .
Colorful School Supplies That Will Actually Make You Want To Study
The first day of school is a lot easier when you have school supplies that you love and a delicious lunch(preferably in a super-cute lunchbox). Similar to the way that cute workout gear can make you actually want to work out, colorful and unique school supplies just might make you feel more capable and ready to take on the day every time you leave your dorm room. From holographic scissors to multicolored highlighters, these picks will help you stay on top of your game all school year long.
Super Fluffy Shiba Portable LED Light ($17)
This mini light is so cute you might do a late-night study sesh just so you can use it. Since it runs on a 15-minute timer, it’s the perfect way to keep track of study sprints.
Amazon Basics Ruled Neon Flash Cards ($7)
Flash cards are one of the best ways to keep track of all your anatomy terms, history dates, and math equations. Grab a pack that’s multicolored to make studying more engaging and to color-code by subject.
Freshmage Stainless Steel Bento Box ($21)
When you don’t want all your foods touching, usually you find a way to stuff multiple Tupperware containers into your lunchbox. But with this bento box’s different layers and compartments, you can pack everything up in the same concentrated container that fits right into your tote without worrying about the food mixing together.
Outdoor Products Mini Mesh Backpack ($15, was $30)
Picking a neon mesh backpack means that not only will you have a place to house your laptop, all your textbooks, and your pencil case, but also you’ll have a trendy fashion statement. And since it’s mesh, it’s easy to clean, which is always a plus for us.
Acrylic Rainbow Multipurpose Scissors ($13)
A good pair of scissors is essential for both school projects and art projects. How else are you supposed to make sure the images for your bullet journal look pristine? We love the way that this pair’s rainbow stainless steel contrasts the clear acrylic handles.
Easthill Grid Mesh Pencil Case ($8)
Organize your desk with a mesh pencil case that keeps your pencils together *and* lets you see what’s inside. The front pocket will hold notes, coffee gift cards, and your favorite pens, and we love the way the lavender piping stands out against the rest of the bag.
Blue Sk Brit + Co Weekly/Monthly Academic Planner ($27)
When it’s time to grab an academic planner for the year, we recommend one that has monthly tabs to let you find your week easily, is untimed so you can customize your schedule, and has storage pockets — like this one!
Beast Hydration System ($38)
The best thing about this hydration system is that there are multiple options for your drink, all within the same bottle. Enjoy your go-to morning smoothie, or stay hydrated with a different flavored water every day, thanks to the infusion chamber.
Retro Color Index Sticky Notes ($4)
Sticky notes that can go right into your books will become your best friend. You can mark lines that will be important come midterm season and write little notes about the passage.
College Ruled 1 Subject Spiral Notebook Brushy Stripes ($3)
You’re going to need a notebook for class, so why not pick one that has a bunch of different colors? If you like to take notes on anything and everything, the pages have lines on the front and back, so you can write on both sides.
Three-Dimensional Lemon AirPods Case Cover ($13)
If you want something more than your standard square AirPods case, look no further than this citrusy design. It’s made out of 100% food-grade silicone and will have you daydreaming about lemonade all day long. Our favorite study hack? Pick your favorite album (we love Marvel movie soundtracks) and study until the last song without stopping.
Russell+Hazel Mini Bookcloth 3 Ring Binder ($19)
Not only does this binder have enough room to hold your English papers and your biology notes, but it also features a dry-erase interior that will let you make a new to-do list every day without having to waste a ton of paper.
Fluffy Pen ($13)
Channel your inner Cher Horowitz with a fluffy pen that makes taking notes way more fun.
Rifle Paper Co. Assorted File Folders ($16)
It’s always a good idea to have file folders on hand to organize all your paperwork. Get a variety so you can divide up your stuff based on syllabi, club forms, and the documents you’ll need forever (think passport and birth certificate).
Paris France Lavender Sticker Sheet ($4)
Planners feel more personalized when you have pretty stickers to decorate the pages, and this set will have your head in the Parisian clouds, even when you’re walking across campus. You can even treat yourself based on the image! Grab some macarons after a long study session or have a French-inspired brunch after your big test is over.
Pastel Highlighter Pen ($9 for 6)
Color-code green for names, blue for vocabulary terms, and orange for dates, or just use your favorite color to highlight quotes that speak to you. Either way, you’ll make the most out of these highlighters.
