Must-Have School Supplies From Erin Condren’s Back to School Collection
Erin Condren has always been the Mecca of planners and planner essentials but has also gained recognition for its other back-to-school supplies like laundry bags, pencil bags, and so much more — and they don’t disappoint. Their products are always high-quality and cute AF. As a college student, keeping up with classes and extracurricular activities is nearly impossible to do without a little help, no matter how hard you try (trust me, sister, I’ve been there; I’m there right now). Check out these must-have Erin Condren school supplies to get you through this hectic school year.
This is by far my favorite product in Erin Condren’s Back To School Collection. Why? Because it’s absolutely perfect for college students. It has six lines for each week day where you can put your assignments and their due dates. The layout is simple and easy to use — not to mention it’s super convenient when looking at your week as a whole. The months aren’t specified so you can start and end this planner whenever you want (although the one drawback is that there are only six months, not a full, nine-month academic year). Each month has a two-page monthly calendar and there are tons of note pages in the back. I highly recommend getting this tool to keep you on top of your assignments.
If you’re a loyal LifePlanner user and don’t want to switch or try out the Academic Planner, that’s fine; you can purchase the Snap-In School Tracker and get a few of the same features for a fraction of the price. With this add-on you can keep track of 14 assignments and their due dates in one place, as well as note high-priority assignments at the top of the page. At the bottom there’s a section for things to remember so you can write down a to-do list of sorts. I’d suggest this for someone who needs to keep track of their classes and assignments but doesn’t necessarily care about keeping up with daily to-dos and assignment tracking.
My favorite thing about the Erin Condren Jot Your Thought Journal is that the possibilities are virtually endless. Want to use it as a diary? You can. Want to keep it as a running to-do list? No problem. Want to write your class notes in style? Easy. No matter what your stationery needs, this journal can accommodate. It differs from Erin Condren’s regular journals because it’s much smaller and only has with 80 pages. The pages are thick so you don’t have to worry about the majority or your gel pens and markers bleeding through. Overall, this a great accessory for anyone — no matter what stage of life you’re in.
A laundry bag is an essential purchase for every college student (especially when you’re living in dorms on campus). You don’t want to get stuck carrying tiny portions of your clothes up and down several flights of stairs each week — while it can be quite the workout, it’s really not worth it. So get yourself a stylish and functional Erin Condren laundry bag with an extra thick strap to provide maximum comfort. They have an extensive number of design options for every type of person, so you’re bound to find one you like.
This monthly deskpad would be perfect to have on your desk, a wall in your apartment, or your in dorm room to keep you on track. You can write down your assignments, extracurricular activities, birthdays, etc. and also have room for to-do lists or even just doodles. This is a great complement — or alternative — to a LifePlanner if you don’t like having to carry around a planner all the time. The Metallic Monthly Deskpad goes from August 2017 – December 2018 and is a great addition to your back-to-school school supplies list to keep you organized.
We’ve all had a binder fall apart halfway through the semester and either had to buy a new one or treat the unraveling one oh-so-delicately. You can make sure you don’t have to go through this frustration, however, with Erin Condren’s new 3-Ring Binder. It’s super thick and durable, so it can withstand the constant opening and closing (as well as getting knocked and thrown around in your backpack). It also comes in two fabulous designs so you can learn in style.
When you purchase your Designer 3-Ring Binder, you should also get yourself a few Designer Pocket Folders. You can punch a few holes in these bad boys and stick them right into your binder to hold loose papers or even act as class dividers. You can’t really go wrong with whatever you decide to use these folders for. Like all other Erin Condren products, there are a ton of design choices. They’re also super inexpensive so your wallet won’t hate you for deciding to get more organized this semester.
Personally, I would use this clutch as a pencil bag, but you could put anything from your makeup products to snacks for class in this classy bag. It’s much larger in-person than I expected and would definitely hold more writing tools than you could ever need (while also holding a calculator). It’s chic and the inspiring text on the front will keep you motivated each day. The material is thick but also soft, making it both comfortable to hold and long-lasting.
Fill your Metallic Quote Clutch with these cute writing tools. You can color code your planner with Erin Condren’s Colorful Dual-Tip Markers (an Earn Spend Live fav) and write notes in your Jot Your Thought Journal with your Designer Pencil Set. Highlight important information in your textbooks with your Multicolor Bright Highlighter Pack and keep up with your Snap-In School Tracker Dashboard with these Wet Erase Markers. Their color options are beautiful and vibrant, and the prices for these school supplies aren’t so bad either.
Price: Prices vary
If you don’t want to have to keep up with a sticker book, or just want to get creative with your sticker colors, this Starter Stencil Sheet is great for you. The best thing about this new product is that if you’re really into stickers it could get expensive, but if you buy the Stencil Sheet you can have relatively endless possibilities.
