My Backpack Essentials

Hello again! I cannot believe I've been posting as frequently as I have, but I hope I can keep it up! This is another post that was requested by one of my tumblr followers. Apparently people are curious about what I put inside of my backpack on a daily basis. I assure you I don't have anything fancy or remarkable in there, but I shall share the contents with y'all anyway.

Well, for starters, there's my backpack. It's pretty important, because without it, I wouldn't be able to do this post. It's a North Face Borealis backpack. I've had it since junior year of high school, and it still looks pretty new! I love it. Now, for what's inside... drumroll...

  • my notebooks and textbooks I need for the day
  • my Lilly Pulitzer agenda
  • a spare computer charger in case my laptop dies
  • my laptop if needed for the day
  • my pencil pouch (which is just a Kate Spade makeup bag)
  • pens and pencils
  • post it notes
  • post it tabs for marking pages so I don't have to fold down the corners
  • highlighters
  • earbuds that I store in a coin case to prevent tangling
  • EOS chapstick
  • Altoids (I'm obsessed and I go through a tin a week)
  • a water bottle
  • a collapsable umbrella since it rains in Florida a ton
  • my wallet and student ID
  • I always keep a spare pen in the outside pocket in case I forget to pack my pencil pouch
  • a KIND bar in case I get hungry in class
  • my car keys if needed
  • extra hair ties
  • flash cards (I rarely use them but have them just in case)
...and that's about all, folks. What are your backpack essentials?
