Back to School season is here, so we’re rounding up our top 10 school supplies for 2019. The following items are on our back to school shopping list.
- Large Doughnut Macaroon
The large Doughnut Macaroon is our top backpack pick. It has a roomy interior plenty of compartments. And even a padded pocket that fits most 15 inch laptops. It’s made from durable corduroy nylon fabric which is sturdy enough for the backpack to last the entire school year. The Macaroon comes in two other sizes as well.
The Maruman Kurufit Binder.
This is a slim and lightweight binder option for students who like keeping their subjects in separate places. The flexible cover makes it easy to slip the binder into any bag or backpack. And it’s available in a variety of stylish translucent colors. Opening the rings is simple. Just unhook the White tab at the bottom and they’ll slide apart. You can fill the binder with Maruman paper or any compatible refill including the Kokuyo campus dividers for more organization.
Kokuyo Smart Campus Notebook.
To keep students backpacks from getting too heavy, Kokuyo came out with a smart campus notebook. It’s slightly thinner and lighter than the regular campus notebook. But the paper quality isn’t sacrificed at all. Like other Kokuyo campus notebooks, the paper is printed with a unique dotted rule style. This is handy for writing organized notes, drawing diagrams and making sections.
Cubix Round Zip Box Pen Case
The Cubix Round Zip Box Pen Case combines two types of storage into one. The side pocket acts as a pen organizer that lays flat when opened with mesh pockets and elastic straps to keep your items in place. The main pouch is nice and spacious, perfect for keeping larger things or pen sets. The pen case is comfortably padded to protect everything inside so students can toss it into their backpacks without worry. It comes in a variety of bright and neutral colors.
Zebra Sarasa Mark on Gel Pen
The latest addition to the Sarasa family, the mark on promises to be smudge free under highlighter. The zebra Sarasa line a fast drying gel pens has been a top recommendation for years. We put it to the test and the verdict, A plus. It holds up well under the modeled liner which is notorious for smudging gel ink.
Uni Jetstream 4 and 4&1 Ballpoint Multi pen
The Uni Jetstream for multi pen is our favorite multi pen for students who often need more than one type of writing tool. The Jetstream has one of the best ballpoint ink formulas on the market. It’s super smooth, fast drying and even waterproof. With the jet stream 4, you can have four colors in one or have an added mechanical pencil in the 4 and 1 version. Multi pens combine two or more refills in one pen body so you don’t have to dig around your bag for a different color pen.
Stabilo Boss Pastel Highlighter.
The Stabilo Boss Pastel Highlighter features six beautiful soft shades. The chisel tip has an extra two mm edge that is excellent for underlining important words. Plus, they have a four-hour dry out protection just in case you forget to cap them. If you want a thinner highlighter, the Stabilo swing cool highlighter offers the same soft colors as the pastel boss.
Pilot Delful Double Knock Mechanical Pencil.
The Pilot Delful is a great Shaker pencil to start with. It has a wide and comfortable grip, and the tip retracts into the body making it safe to carry in a pocket or back. We like recommending Shaker pencils to students because they’re so convenient to use. Simply give the pencil a slight shake to advance the lead. That way, you don’t have to read grip and interrupt your writing.
Sakura Sumo grip Retractable Eraser.
You can’t go wrong with any of Sakura erasers. But since it can get messy in a student’s pen case we picked the retractable sumo grip. The plastic case keeps the rest of protected and pristine inside a pencil case. The Sumo grip erases cleanly with minimal pressure making it easy on your hands and gentle on the paper. It’s long thin shape ensures that you will always have a sharp edge or corner for precise erase.
Kutsuwa Stad Ruler Set.
Whether it’s for geometry class or an art project, the Kutsuwa stad ruler set has everything a student needs. The black rulers and protractor have a slip resistant backing so they’ll stay in place while you use them. The measurements on the black rulers start at the very edge of the ruler getting rid of that gap that can get in the way of measuring some items. We hope you’ve enjoyed our recommendations to help get you through the school year. What’s on your back to school shopping list? Leave a comment below.
