university checklist backpack notepad list

MY BACK TO UNIVERSITY CHECKLIST

So it’s that time of year again where we need to get that checklist out and begin our “going-back-to-uni shop”. I live at home so this post is a run-down of all stationary bits+bobs you might find handy to have

Some of these things might sound simple, but just in case – here we are:

  • A laptop & laptop cover: I have a regular sized laptop (a hp one to be exact) where I do all my work at home. I also have a mini Acer laptop to take with me to class. I bought the mini-laptop in my second year of uni as I quickly realised 1) I prefer to type notes, & 2) My normal laptop is too heavy to take with me
  • Along with a laptop, access to wi-fi & a printer will also come in very handy
  • Notebooks – My personal preference is when the paper has punch holes at the side
  • Planner/Diary – I recently bought a weekly planner from b&m bargains and I must say, I’m very excited to use it. Even if you don’t jot down everything in your diary, I find it really useful knowing what needs to be done and for when.
  • Binders & Folders – These are helpful for any print-outs, question papers, old essays, example essays etc. It’s just handy having everything in the one place
  • Sticky tabs & post-its – I use these a lot in my course books. It saves you a lot of time if you keep tabs on what pages you look at the most or some important knowledge you don’t want to forget
  • Lastly – pens, pencils, eraser, stapler…the absolute basics. Even if you do type your notes, you never know when you’ll need a pen! And a stapler is always just helpful to have around to keep everything together.

There’s probably something I’m forgetting but if you have these basics you should be set!

  1. That’s actually a really good idea to get a mini laptop for school. I honestly never thought of that. I used to carry around my big ol’ laptop everywhere. Had to carry t separately from my backpack, it was a total pain! Definitely considering getting one for next semester. Great ideas in here!

What's your thoughts?
