Back to School 2015: Planners & Bags


EmilyLey Simplified Planner

August is better than January when it comes to planners for several reasons —

  • You get a second start at the “new year”
  • The best planners start in August!

I’ve done reviews of a few of my favorite planners here. I’m currently using the Emily Ley Simplified Planner, but have used the Erin Condren Life Planner and the Lilly Pulitzer Academic Planner in the past.


You need something to haul all those new supplies in don’t you?


Cinda B. I received this bag as a Christmas gift last year. It’s billed as a weekender bag but I use it whenever I need to carry a lot of things into work or have a lot of errands to run. The hard bottom means that it doesn’t fall over when you sit it down and the pockets around the side allow for lots of organization.

Madeline and Co. I am not in the market for a backpack (I get mistaken for a student enough as it is!) but if I was I know these backpacks would be at the top of my list. I love that a HS student designed the bag that she wanted — laptop pocket, cute interior, hard bottom, large opening. Plus, there’s nothing better than supporting young entrepreneurs!
