It’s been a hot minute since I’ve had to shop for back to school. Nonetheless, that feeling of starting “a new year” in September never goes away. Even if you’re not in school, summer tends to be slower-paced. When September rolls around, the work usually amps up.
As a full-time freelancer, my schedule is always a little bit irregular, but a change is on the horizon. What you may have gathered from my Instagram stories lately, is that I’m on the hunt for a full-time job. I’ll explain all of that in another post, when I actually find a job. For now though, I anticipate that I’ll be having a fresh start at some point in September, too. I’ll be just like the kiddos heading back to school!
Despite no longer being in school, I still regularly use a lot of “school supplies.” Of course, at this point in my life, they’re just called “office supplies”. Everybody needs Office Supplies at some point, and with the amount of choice that some of these outlets have, it’s always either too hard to know what to get or too hard to not spend all of your money getting things that you don’t need! Even though I can buy office supplies at any time of the year, I still end up stocking up at the end of the summer. What can I say – I’m a creature of habit!
Believe it or not, one of the best places to shop for office supplies is Amazon. The selection is endless, they have the best basics, fun trendy pieces…and best of all, no crowds! (I can’t stand crowds when I’m shopping)
So, if you’re going back to school next month, or just want to stock up on some school-type goodies, this is the post for you. I’m sharing some back to school inspired must haves that I’ve found on Amazon. Some of these I already have (like the marble MacBook laptop case), and some are currently sitting on my wish-list.
