Summer flew by and now it’s back to school season. Campus is going to look a little different this time around though, as masks are required and you might even have online classes. That being said, there’s no reason you can’t be excited for the school year! You may not be sure what to buy to make it a safe and successful semester other than basic school supplies, but look no further! Check out these back to school must-haves to make this semester the best it can be.


Contactless Safety Tool

Yes, you’ll need a mask and hand sanitizer but let’s skip the obvious. Amazon sells a pack of two Contactless Safety Tools for just $9.99. These handy tools will make your life touch-free. Doesn’t that sound great? You can open most doors with the hook part of the device. With the tip you can press elevator buttons, key in your pin when you checkout at the store, and so much more. It’s an affordable way to bypass germs on the everyday surfaces we touch. This is a must have that could help keep you safe during this pandemic.

Bedside Tray

Chances are the majority of your classes will be online, which means some days you may not even get out of bed. Having a bedside tray is what you’ll need to make working from home bearable. Amazon has a wide variety of options to fit your wants and needs. If you’re willing to splurge, you can get a tray that has a cupholder, charging ports, iPad holder, and phone holder all in one. It can also fit your laptop and of course, snacks. With this nifty tool, you’ll never want to leave your bed!

Mystique Nano Mist Sprayer

As much as we try to wash our hands, germs can be inevitable. Mystique Nano Mist Spray is a portable hand sanitizer no bigger than your phone. You fill it with your preferred disinfectant and spray away! This is great for disinfecting laptops, phones, door handles, etc. You might want to get your hands on this since disinfectant wipes have been out of stock since March. What makes this tool even better is that it charges via USB. It’s so small that it can fit in a backpack, purse, or even your pocket. The Mystique Nano Mist Sprayer will soon become your best friend.

Tabletop Vacuum

Tired of cleaning up eraser shavings and crumbs? A tabletop vacuum is your easy solution! Amazon sells a wide variety of these portable vacuums for under $20. You can use them on countertops, couches, desks, keyboards, you name it. Regular-sized vacuums are a hassle with their overly-long cords. Tabletop vacuums are a fun way to clean up after yourself, with another plus being that they don't take up much space on your desk.
