School Supplies Season

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, but all my thoughts & opinions are my own. #pmedia #sharpieclearview http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

I typically am never truly sad as summer comes to an end because my favorite season is just around the corner. Oh, I am giddy like Tom Hanks in You’ve got Mail “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms.” Sigh. Fall. School Supplies. Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan.

When I walk through the school supplies aisles I hear the sound of dial up internet and the email exchanges between Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox. My hands instinctively grab the sharpies, high lighters, organizers off the shelf and they make themselves at home in my jars & baskets.

While walking through the aisles at Walgreens I found the best Sharpie Highlighters in the world I am sure. They are bright. Thick. AND have this clear thing that you can actually see what you are highlighting with (remember that instagram you all fell in love with?) Anyways, I figured I needed to get them for my blog organization because things that are in pretty colors are more likely to get accomplished!

MY BLOG ORGANIZATIONAL SUPPLIES:
Blogger Worksheets: Elah Tree
Washi Tape: Thatch & Thistle
Blog Binder: Emily Ley
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BLOG ORGANIZATIONAL TOOL?
  • I love this season too! I used to get so excited to choose my new pencil case for the school year 🙂

  • Omg. I have to stay away from the school supply section at Target. DANGEROUS!

  • I just fell in love with Tom Hanks all over again reading that quote from You've Got Mail. That is such a fantastic movie. And fall is my favorite!!! It is so cozy…like a bear hug from your best friend.

    P.S. this post may have convinced me that I truly do need those highlighters 😉

  • I agree, I love school supplies too! Love getting ready for the new school year with lots of little organizing supplies, colorful pens, & adorable binders!

  • Trysmallthings

    Love your post — you've got me all excited to buy some new school supplies! I've got a Kate Spade agenda that I love using for my blog — at first I thought it was almost too pretty to write in (like your Emily Ley binder!) but I've gotten over it and it's wonderful!

  • office supplies are a weakness of mine! now i feel like i NEED those highlighters. haha!

    my favorite blog organization tools are blogger worksheets & the new pens i just bought. [pilot G-2 pens]

  • Amy

    uhhh those highlighters are so cute!
    i am all about some new office supplies. i also love browsing through the college furniture at target hahaha.

  • ooo I'm giddy too! I love the idea of a blog worksheet so thanks for sharing. I am a highlighter and post it queen. They keep me organized!!

  • This post is so fun! I love school/office supplies!

  • Those highlighters are so awesome! I definitely need to get a few of them:)

  • I love schools supplies! It's so hard not to give in a buy a whole lot of things I don't actually need, however I do like to spoil myself with really nice pens! I only use the nice ones while journaling and rarely do I share them.

  • I need to go buy some supplies for blogging! I miss school supply shopping already. I just made a binder for blogging, and I just love being organized! It really makes me work more efficiently and keep track of everything. I also LOVE using colored pens and highlighters.

  • Nikola

    Those sharpies are awesome, and I'm absolutely loving that binder!

  • ashley

    I keep seeing those Sharpie Highlighters on tv. I want!

  • I love this post! I love how it came together and, for real, those highlighters look amazing! Also, You've Got Mail, adorable! Secretly wishing we can visit we visit New York!

  • I pretty much only use Google calendar and Google docs to organize my posts and important notes! I like Samanthas awesome blogger worksheets, though!

  • Felicia

    I just started reading your blog. I love it! I use my iphone calendar exclusively now and but really miss my color coded planner I used to carry in my purse.

  • Sometimesphotojenik

    Ahhhh I LOVE my pens! Something about a nurse and her pens. My hubby thinks I'm crazy for wanting to walk down the school supply section just to browse all the pens. From this post and all the responses my suspicion is confirmed that he's the crazy one- not me ???? yay for back to school specials!

  • These look amazing! I'm going to have to try them! I love paper notebooks and a good ink pen. I'm a paper gal at heart. It may end up online, but I love the art of handwriting. It's more relaxing. 🙂

  • Kayla Hollatz

    Um, can you come over and take photos for my blog? You have such great photography on your blog!

  • Okay, You really are the sweetest!

  • I love all Emily Ley!

  • I think just a girl and her pens! Pens are so magical!

  • I am all about browsing EVERYthing at Target!

  • Tom Hanks. Joe Fox.
