Back to college supplies you must have!

back to college

It’s back to school season, and we all need some stuff to get through our college lives. We need from candies to binders and even pens. Yeah, who thought we needed pens for college? That’s why today I’ll share with you guys my back to college essentials.

We all have different likes when it comes to school supplies. Some of us like minimalist things, all black and white, and others prefer pastel color items in their pencil cases. What’s a fact is that all of us search for the same things to survive the semester.

My top back to school essentials


I don’t know you guys, but I can’t stand those neon highlighters that were pretty popular back in the days. Neon highlighters distract me and make my eyes hurt, so I always use the pastel one.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Stabilo or a Zebra Midliner lover. What’s a fact is that you need highlighters to take better notes.


Binders are a most have. They are useful in so many ways. From being notebooks to keeping your class papers organized.

I highly recommend using a 1-inch binder for each subject in which you can keep all your notes organized. Also, you can divide them into two sections, one for your notes and another for any photocopy or homework that you save from that subject.


If you’re not a binder person, you’ll definitely need notebooks. I always recommend notebooks with thick pages so when you highlight or anything, the marker won’t pass the page.

Also, if you’re a binder lover, I still recommend a notebook, some subjects are better keeping them into notebooks instead of binders.


I used to live for folders with different colors for different subjects. I color-coded my subject from the beginning of the semester so I knew where to go and didn’t lose time looking inside of them. However, as I’m on a zero waste journey, I changed my folders to these eco-friendly ones.

I use dividers to keep the lessons separated so I won’t lose track of my them.


When we’re back to school, a new and strong backpack is necessary, well, maybe new is not that important, but strong is.

Carrying a laptop, tons of notebooks and other stuff can be harsh on your backpack (and could even break it). That’s why you need a strong and durable backpack.

I highly recommend this backpack since is cute, waterproof, resistant and have lots of space. It’s all in one!


We live in the 21st Century, we all need laptops for classes. From taking notes to doing homework, a laptop is important.

My advice to you is that you should always look for a laptop that will fulfill your necessities. Don’t look for price nor cuteness. Look for quality.


Gel pens are my life. My handwriting looks so nice with gel pens, and they can last forever if you get good ones.

I have different colors for different subjects. They look nice, I won’t have a mess on my notebooks and I just love them. However, if you don’t like gel pens, there plenty of options out there. So don’t get stuck!
