Whatever Wednesday: Your Back-to-School Shopping List

Whatever Wednesday

It’s Whatever Wednesday! And the whatever we’re talking about this Wednesday is back to school shopping!

Back to school shopping is my favourite kind of shopping. School supplies are the absolute best. And after being in school for over a decade, I know a thing or two about a school notebook or two. That’s why I’m going to give you my guide to the best things to have with you this semester so you’re on top of your school game, whether you’re in middle school, high school, or a university goof like me.

Let’s get guiding!

Back-to-School Shopping: The Only Guide You’ll Ever Need

Sticky notes

Sticky notes are a necessity for any semester, that much I am positive of. From marking up pages to making notes to shopping/grocery lists, what can a sticky note NOT do? I love to get sticky notes in colour themes or in funky designs or patterns because it makes you stand out in a yellow sticky note world. And that’s important.

Water bottle

Stay hydrated. I have made the mistake too many years of not having a water bottle with me in class. And when your throat starts drying up, it’s pretty embarrassing hocking up some liquid in front of your lecture hall. That’s why having a water bottle is so handy. This year I’m using a Hydro Flask to keep my water nice and cold all day long.


Surely this one goes without saying. You’re going to need a notebook. And one that’s going to last the whole semester/year. Choose one with lots of tabs (for all your classes), is durable, and maybe has something cool on the front. What better way to open up a conversation with your crush?

The perfect pen

Pens. I love pens. And having the perfect pen is so important. One that writes well, looks great, and fits in your hand perfectly. For the last year or so I’ve been obsessed with StabiloUK point 88 pens. They come in so many different colours and are so great for writing notes, jotting stuff down in my planner, and looking great on my desk.

Laptop case

In college it’s all about having your laptop with you. It’s very rare I see someone on campus not on their laptop. And if you’re going to be packing around your pricey equipment, it’s important to have it in an equally as great case. I mean, people buy high end baby strollers, so you can buy a nice laptop case, right?


What school supplies are your necessities for a great semester? If you want to know about any of the products I use that aren’t on this list, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll let you know!
