Back to School Supplies for Bloggers

It’s my favourite time of year again…back-to-school sales are in full swing!  I’m not in school right now personally, but that doesn’t mean I’m ignoring these deals.  In fact, lots of these are perfect for blogging! I’ve rounded up my favourite picks of school supplies for bloggers, available now at a store (or online storefront) near you!

While our links are to Amazon, you can pick up these items nearly anywhere!


Sure, our actual content may appear online.  But notebooks can be absolutely critical along the way!  Whether you’re outlining a new post, taking notes during a workshop, or just doing a brain dump, a notebook can hold all of your most precious blogging notes.  If you’re not one for digital notes, stock up while all kinds of notebooks are on sale!

A few picks:

Composition Notebook | Nifty Llama & Succulents Pattern*

Cornell Notes Notebook: Trendy Navy Blue Cacti & Succulent Print*

Composition Notebook: Kawaii Kitty Cat Wide Ruled Lined Journal*

Cambridge Limited Business Notebook*


If you’ve got a notebook, you’ve got to have something to write in it with!  Get some standard black, blue, and red pens, or go for a full rainbow to colour-coordinate your work.  There’s an option for every budget…and every blogger!

A few picks:

Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pens, Medium Point*

BIC Round Stic Xtra Life Ballpoint Pen, Medium Point*

Pilot FriXion Clicker Retractable Erasable Gel Pens, Fine Point*

Pilot Precise V5 Stick Rolling Ball Pens, Extra Fine Point*

Locker decor

Do you like to get fancy when taking flat lays for Instagram? Pieces meant to be locker decorations can be a super cute addition when you go to take that photo!

3C4G Locker Carpet, Turquoise*

Homecube Linen Cotton Fabric Wall Door Cloth Hanging Storage Bag Case 5 Pocket Home Organizer*

Daily Ritual Women’s Supersoft Terry Sleeveless Romper*

I’m using Google Calendar more and more, but I still use my paper planner like my life depends on it!  I love being able to see my upcoming posts, events, and even social media posts all in one place!  This is where those multi-colour pens come in, too–you can use one planner for multiple aspects of your life!

Flash Drive

Consider this a reminder to back up your blog!  One of the worst blogging mishaps is accidentally deleting or otherwise losing your content or website itself. You can schedule automatic backups and save them to the cloud or to a flash drive—or both!  An extra copy never hurt anyone.

A few picks:

TOSPLUS 2Pack 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive*

16GB USB Flash Drive 10 Pack*

SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Force Flash Drive*

Folders or Binders

Whether you’ve just started blogging or you’re a seasoned pro, chances are you’ll take a few courses and workshops along the way.  Grab some folders or binders to keep all those freebies in one place!  This is also great for any notes that aren’t in a notebook, or any other paper items you might need to keep on hand.

A few picks:

JAM PAPER Heavy Duty Plastic 2 Pocket School Folders*

Decorative Gold Foil File Folders – 12-Count Colored File Folders*

Samsill Fashion Color 3 Ring Storage Binders*

Avery Durable View Binder*

Classroom Decor

Like locker decor, you can likely find some classroom decorations that will look great in a flat lay or video backdrop. Get creative! If you can’t find anything you particularly like in stores, check out Pinterest for all sorts of DIY ideas that may suit your purposes.

A few picks:

Scratch Off World Map Poster*

Brushed Steel Lamp with Charging Outlet and Fabric Shade*

Teacher Created Resources Home Sweet Classroom Wall Decor*

Self-Adhesive Removable Wood Peel and Stick Wallpaper*

Bulletin and/or White Board

Keep a dry erase calendar, pin up a note to self, or create a vision board to keep you motivated and focused on reaching your goals!

A few picks:

Catalina Printed Cork Board*

Quartet Combination Magnetic Whiteboard Calendar & Corkboard*

U Brands Cork Bulletin Board*

Dry Erase White Board | 5 Magnetic Dry Erase Markers & Eraser*


This certainly isn’t a school supply that everyone will be picking up every year, but if you’re due for an upgrade and can fit it in your budget, back-to-school sales offer some amazing deals on laptops!

A few picks:

Apple 13″ MacBook Air*

Asus Chromebook C523NA-DH02*

Acer Aspire 5 Slim Laptop, 15.6″*


Short of maybe the new year, there’s no better time to start a bullet journal than the back-to-school season, especially if you’re blogging as a student! Pick up a journal (I prefer dot-grid, myself!), check out our archives and Pinterest for ideas, and get to work—your life will be more organised in no time!

A few picks:

Bullet Dotted Journal Kit*

Bullet Planner by Scribbles That Matter*

Moleskine Cahier Journal, Soft Cover, XXL*

Snacks might not be a standard school supply, but we can all use a little pick-me-up as we type away at blog content and social media posts!  Keep an eye out for back-to-school deals on snacks that are typical for lunchboxes and backpacks.

A few picks:
