Show and Tell Tuesdays: Back to School

Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope all is well and you are having a great day so far! Today I am teaming up with Andrea for another fun round of Show and Tell Tuesdays.  This one is a bit different for me because I do not have any children myself and neither my husband or I are in school at the moment.  However, I can tell you what I did do while I was a student in my undergrad. 

The first {and most frustrating} part of getting ready for school was ordering all of my textbooks.  Thankfully, my sophomore year I came across this website called Chegg.  If you have not heard of Chegg and you are currently in college or will be going back soon, I would seriously consider giving them a quick glance.  It is a website where you can rent your textbooks for about 1/3 of the price.  If keeping your textbooks is not a big deal and you are all about saving money {like me}, I would for sure check it out! 

If I am honest with you all {and myself} I am addicted to school supplies.  There is nothing more exciting to me then buying colorful pens, notebooks and sticky note pads.  I am also obsessed with my Erin Condren planner.  If you have not heard of Erin Condren, I highly recommend you check her stuff out.  Throughout high school, college, and even afterward, I have used a planner.  There is something so helpful about having everything in one place + I get so much joy out of color coding everything in my planner to help me track what I am supposed to be doing for the upcoming weeks // months. 

Once I had my planner picked out, I made sure to pick up a few good notebooks, a three-ring binder and colorful pens.  I found while I was in college, that it helped to have a three ring binder with all of my subjects in one place.  On average I was taking between four and six classes, so I would keep all of the papers for every class in one binder.  Each subject had it's own divider (the divider had a pocket) and then a notebook for each subject.  

When I started college, this was not my method for organization, but as I got more comfortable with my schedule, I realized over time that I did better to have everything in one place.  That way things were not scattered all over the place. 

Also when I was getting ready to go back to school, I would stock up on granola bars and water bottles.  Often times I would be running from class to class, so this helped me not be starving when I was running myself ragged trying to get to all of my classes and work.  

Once I had all my supplies and books ready to go, this girl was a happy camper and ready to get the show on the road!
