5 Desk Must Haves

Confession time: shopping for school supplies is one of the last highlights of summer. Who can resist stocking up on sticky notes, cute folders and binders? Before you make your list and head to the store, check out five must-haves for your desk.

1. Planner | A planner keeps you organized, helping you managing deadlines, meetings and (most importantly) events!  Erin Condren life planners are an absolute lifesaver. Consider this planner your ultimate sidekick for the school year. 

2. Lip Balm | Don’t let chapped lips interrupt study time! I give this lip balm an A+ for effectiveness (hello, Vitamin E!). Keep one (or three) in your desk to keep lips in perfect condition.  

3. Stationary | There will always be a time when you need to jot down an important note. Whether you need a last-minute thank you card after an interview or a note to a friend, stand out with this stationary.  How adorable is that bow?

4. Pens | Back-to-school means back to writing notes, papers and more.  Make taking notes during lectures fun with these pens from Target.  Use the different colors to color code your notes, or use a different shade for each class!

5. Wireless Speaker | Make study time fun with wireless speakers!  Jam out to a study playlist while you type a paper, do your math homework or read your textbook for class.  Then, take a mandatory dance party break with your roomies!

Happy shopping, collegiettes ™!
