If you’re anything like me, it’s been years since you’ve been in school and yet there’s just something about back to school season that begs you to get organized! There’s nothing quite like a desk stacked with unmarred notebooks and a pencil cup loaded with freshly sharpened No. 2s to get me motivated. Just like spring, for me fall is one of those seasons where there’s a perfect excuse to kick the clutter and pick up a few pretty new things to help me stay on track and on time. So with the kids shuttling off to school soon (if not already) let’s chat about back to school supplies, shall we? We’re talking cute little additions for the kids’ back to school arsenal and plenty of pretty things to whip your desk or craft space into tidy, back to school shape. Here are 12 picks that I’m loving at the moment!
