Back to School Haul - Supplies

So the lovely Cathleen and Nicole are hosting a month long back to school link-up called Bloggers go Back to School! I'm so excited to be a part of this because y'all know I love BTS so much. Definitely contact them for more information because it's going to be so fun. :)

This week on Bloggers go Back to School... Fashion!
Some of y'all right now are thinking Julianna, school supplies is not fashion. I would like to fight you on that statement. Do you remember the elementary school days where what character was on your folder was the biggest dilemma? Or who was on your lunchbox? Or did you have glitter pens or not? These problems don't stop after elementary school, people! They evolve. Do you use a school issued agenda or do you buy your own? Do you buy Staples brand binders? Do you have cool pencil case? Trust me, buying school supplies is a stressful process. Or maybe it's just me? Tell me I'm not alone!

This year I decided to do something a little different. For all my classes, except math, I decided to have a notebook along with a binder. This was so that all my hand-written notes stay in one place, and I've done this before with usually only one class, so I think it will work for four. (My Econ/Gov notebook isn't here because I kept messing up the cover.) All my notebooks are from Mead Five-Star, and I either got one or three subject depending on how often I think I'll be taking notes. Once school starts, I will do an organization post about how I take notes and everything.

Again this is a little different than what I normally do. This year I got a 1.5" binder for each class. Normally I get two binders and split my classes up, but I think this system will work out especially since of how my schedule is laid out. I always get my binders from Staples because they hold up super well during the school year. And don't worry about how to make the binder covers! I have a post coming up in two weeks. :)

Lastly, I wanted to show y'all this adorable pencil case I got from Staples. It's by the brand Paperchase, and I absolutely love it. I'm a sucker for anything involving anchors, so I knew I had to get this for my senior year. Everything from their Anchors Ahoy line is too perfect. Definitely be sure to be on the lookout for it at your Staples.

Obviously, I got paper and pencils and all the jazz, but this was all the fun stuff I wanted to show y'all!
