What's In My School Bag 2017

Wahayy - back again for another installment of what's in my school bag! These are one of my favourite posts and topics to read/watch, so I am so excited to write this. This year, I'm heading to sixth form, so the equipment I need is slightly different to what I would use in secondary school - I've gathered the things I think I need but I can always pick up more stuff if I have forgotten anything!

My school bag is the Dune Taupe Grained Tote Bag, retailed at £65.00 - I can't find it on the Dune website, but I bought mine for £39.99 at TK Maxx - buy here! I really like this bag, it's really big and roomy to carry all of my school stuff. It feels really good quality as well, so I'm hoping it lasts so I can use it for everyday life after school!

Here is a quick overview of what I will be carrying in my everyday bag; fineliners, felt tips, refill pad, A4 plastic wallet, pencil case, highlighters and a thermal flask. I find that all this fits really easily in my school bag, and it leaves plenty of room for my lunchbox should I feel like making my own lunch that day. The thermal flask is from Primark for £5, and I love it! I think it will be perfect for the morning's where I want to take a hot drink in with me!

I plan to write all my notes in the refill pad during lessons and put them into the plastic wallet after writing them to save them from getting creased and crumpled. Then, when I get home I can transfer these notes into the big folders I bought for each subject I am doing. This saves me from carrying all the folders with me in the day, and also allows me to have a lighter bag by not carrying several notebooks at the same time!

Look how cute these pastel highlighters are! I bought my pack of 6 from Ryman for £3.49 - again, I can't find the deal I bought them for online but try heading into stores to see what deals they have! I know that pastel highlighters are not a necessity, but I think they will be really useful for studying and organising notes. In terms of other stationery, I just bought some regular Bic biros (aka my favourite pen), some Wilko pencils, all in one rubber/sharpener and a ruler!

When are you going back to school? What's in your school bag?
