We all know how it goes. School starts in a couple of weeks, tax-free days are here, it’s time to BUY SUPPLIES! Party time, right? Right, no.
School supplies are a money- and time-sucking necessity that we wish just weren’t. But they are. You walk those aisles looking for a red folder with brads, 587 glue sticks, Crayola crayons in a pack of 48 only that comes with two Burnt Siennas…
Some part of you, though, sees those other shiny, trendy pencils, notebooks, and more… the ones that absolutely don’t comply with your kid’s new teacher’s mini power trip? Well, no one ever said back-to-school supplies were just for kids, right?
Here are our top 10 awesome “school” supplies found from and ordered from the comfort of our couch that we want, nay, deserve in our mom lives.
1. Sparkly Day Designer
If you don’t think you need this sparkly ass Day Designer to survive, I don’t even know who you are anymore. Be warned that “sparkly” is by no means the name of the specific Day Designer, just a term of endearment from the editorial staff here at NoFilter. SO SHINY. And it coincides with the new school year so… basically a life or death situation right here.
