Back To School Stuff You Will Want To Keep. For Yourself.

It’s August and the back-to-school buzz is in the air. You know what I’m talking about. The emails about sports registration. The stacks of composition notebooks at Target. My inbox is flooded with back-to-school promotions and now there’s even a whole new category: back to COLLEGE. From what I’ve seen so far, let’s just say that my dorm room looked nothing like some of these set ups today. Do I wish I could go back to college? Not really. However, there are some pretty nifty items that I wouldn’t mind picking up for myself this season. Here are some fun back-to-school items you will want to have all to yourself:


Students need to make the most of their space. The Origami Foldable Multipurpose Desk from HSN allows you (I mean your student) to maximize their space when not in use! Honestly this is also really great for crafting, when you don’t have a dedicated crafting room. It folds up beautifully and the turquoise is SO pretty.


I’m in love with this lunch tote. If you’re going to through the trouble of making yourself healthy lunches to take to the office, then you totally deserve this fabulous Lug bag from QVC. The insulated interior helps keep everything cool during your commute.


Looking for a budget friendly way to give your office some love? Try one of these pretty swivel chairs from Ikea.


Well this under the brewer rolling drawer from Bed Bath & Beyond just makes the organizational angels sing. Don’t you agree? What a great solution for those K cups.


I have two words for you: Removable Wallpaper. That’s right folks, instant gratification for your walls. Sure it’s perfect for your college students’ dorm room. But just imagine how amazing your office or bedroom could look with a cool accent wall. Urban Outfitters has a pretty solid selection, including this Whismical Floral.


Bottom line? When you’re dashing through the aisles like a madwoman, keep your eyes peeled for time-saving, organizational solutions for you! Because an organized Mom is a happy Mom. Right?
