Back To School Supplies Haul/Organization

 Hey everyone,
I'm starting my last year of high school (eeekk!!!) very shortly, and as much as I never really want to go back to school after 2 months of relaxation and fun, I always get so excited about back to school shopping! I went back to school shopping a few weeks ago and started organizing everything, so today I thought I would share with you the things I purchased and how I organized my planner, binder and pencil case!

 I got these two adorable 1.5 inch binders at Staples.  I only have 3 subjects my first semester, so I decided to get 2 binders and use 1 binder for 2 subjects.  I also custom made these covers myself with the course code of each class so I would know which binder was for what subject. 

 Of course, I needed a couple sets of dividers for my binders!  I like to divide my sections into hand outs and notes, homework, assignments and tests, and lined paper

I also stocked up on lots and lots of paper to last throughout the year and put one package of lined paper in each binder.

 I also picked up a locker mirror and whiteboard.  I already had a lock and locker shelf from last year, so I didn't need to repurchase those!

 My sister and I split a pack of flower magnets and a pack of round magnets so we would get 5 each.

 For some reason, seniors aren't provided with planners, so I went out and found this pink one at Staples.  I'm going to go into a little bit more detail of how I organize this.

 It's separated into monthly sections and each section comes with a monthly calender as well as a daily calender where you can write little reminders or your homework in,  The yellow tab flips to the monthly calender while the blue tab flips to whichever week it is. 

 I added a key on the front page to show which colour pen I use to mark down dates on my calender.  I find that using different coloured pens just makes my planner seem more fun and makes it something that I want to keep up with.  Below is an example of September's calender.  It isn't fully finished yet, obviously and I'm thinking of adding a different colour so I can mark down my work out schedule as well.

 Here's what the day by day sections looks like.

 This is the pencil case that I decided on this year.  Last year I used one from Aritzia and found that it just wasn't spacious enough for me.  I meant to take pictures of everything before I packed it away, but I guess this part can be more of a 'how I organize my pencil case/what I keep inside it' rather than a haul.

 In the front pouches I just keep extra staples, paper clips, sticky notes, reinforcements, my USB, and an eraser.

 I don't generally use pencils as I much prefer pens, but I decided to include a couple just in case I need them!

 I like to keep a large variety of pens. (You can probably tell I love my blue pens ;) 

 Some fun colourful pens!

Lastly, I made binder covers for my brother and sister as well, so I thought I'd include those here!
