Hey everyone! Today I’m going to show you everything that is in my backpack. I am home schooled so most days I don’t need my backpack. I do use it once a week for the co-op that I go to.
Also, I want to thank my grandma, who we call Bammom, for buying my school supplies this year. She’s great at finding the best deals and finding stuff I like 🙂 ! Are you ready? Let me show you what is inside my backpack this year 😀
This is my backpack. This will be my third year using it. It is really great quality. It is grey with purple and aqua accents.
Here is the back. The straps are padded which makes them really comfy and they don’t make my shoulders sore.
On the right side of the backpack there is a water bottle holder which I usually put my water bottle (not shown) and my ear buds.
This is the very front pocket of my backpack.
Inside of it I keep: deodorant, a calculator, index cards, my planner (not shown), and an index card that has my schedule written on it.
Next up is the long, middle pocket.
I keep my iPod (not shown), and my pencil-case in this pocket. The pencil-case is the perfect size for a glue stick, a stapler (this is great to keep in case you need to staple some papers together before handing them to a teacher), scissors, a pencil sharpener, highlighters, colored pens (these are so useful for organizing notes and my planner. They are my favorite stationary item), pencils, and colored pencils.
I also have this small pocket at the top of my backpack which is really handy for storing small things.
I keep a small zippered bag inside (not show) to hold what I call my essentials. Inside of that I put hand lotion, a toothbrush, tooth paste (not shown), wax for my braces, diaper wipes (these are so useful!), little picks to clean my braces which I really recommend especially if you have braces, chap stick, another brush cleaner thing for my braces, hand sanitizer, a hair tie, and two bobby pins.
Finally onto the main pocket!
First, we have all my science stuff. This year I’m taking physical science. I bring my textbook and notebook with me to class along with my binder.
On the side of my binder it says science and the front is a tag I DIYed.
Inside my binder there is my turtle folder and on the right there is my three-ring hole punch and my notebook. The three-ring hole punch is one of my favorite school supplies because you can use it right on the spot instead of stuffing your papers in the side of your binder. I broke my big hole punch (because I brought it to class every week) half way through the year last year. So I like that this one works the same but it way smaller. Also, it comes with a built-in ruler!
I also made these DIY emoji dividers. I was inspired to make this DIY from a Youtuber I watch. I love her videos and you should check her out. Her channel is MiniLucie13.
Next up, literature. I didn’t really DIY anything for literature and so it’s pretty boring.
Then I found a pencil and my mini hairbrush floating around in the big pocket.
Lastly, we have writing supplies. This year I’m taking IEW (Institute for Creative Writing). This is my binder with some emojis that describe me (like the camera one 😉 ) along with my notebook/textbook for the class.
Then we have my folder for writing, which I really like.
I also made more dividers for writing, using other emojis.
That’s everything that I keep in my backpack. Whew, there is a lot in there! It weighs 17.2 pounds. Though I think it was heavier last year :D.
What is your most important item in your backpack?
Have a great hump day 😉
I went swimming on Monday for Labor day. What did you do?
