Ah, back to school time again. I used to love it as a kid, and I still love it as an adult thanks to my addiction to back to school supplies! Now that I’m older (ahem) and (slightly) more mature, I like to snag the hottest back to school supplies to use in my home office. And today, I’m sharing my current faves with you. Keep reading for the hottest back to school supplies you need in your home office!
The Hottest Back to School Supplies You Need In Your Home Office
There’s just something about back to school!
The temps cool down, then there’s the fresh smell of books and notebooks and notebook paper (don’t judge me…there are candles that smell like books), memories of shopping for new clothes and, be still my giddy heart, brand spankin’ new school supplies!
Today, I’m sharing the must-have back to school supplies that you need for your office.
You know a few of these have already made their way into my home office! 🙂

#1 Not Your Mamma’s Desk Organizer
I’ve had a strange obsession with cacti for awhile now….
This Cactus Cup Desk Organizer is the perfect cure for my obsession.
And how stinkin’ cute is it?!
It can corral all of my desk accessories including writing utensils, paper clips, rubber bands, scissors, and more.
#2 Give Me All the Planner Stickers
Another much beloved school supply that stuck with me into adulthood….
Now, there’s an actual grown up version called “planner stickers!”
No longer do I have to saunter nonchalantly into the kids’ sticker aisle and pretend that I’m not buying them for me. These are 100% authentic, legitimate, bona fide stickers just for
ME! uh, I mean for all of us adults. 😉
And check out the amazing (and affordable) assortment of planner stickers available on Amazon.
I’m loving this set from Peter Pauper Press!
And any stickers from Me & My Big Ideas are always favorites! I especially love this Create 365 Planner Sticker Pack.
#3 Pencil Pouches for Every Personality
No longer do you have to settle for boring green and black mesh pencil pouches.
I’m currently loving cylindrical pencil pouches. They’re so compact and fun!
And this black striped canvas pouch will help you hang on to the summer feels just a little bit longer!
And we’re back to the cacti obsession….
Fuel yours with this 4 piece set of pencil pouches decorated with various—and adorable—cacti!
#4 Never Enough Cacti
Yep, I have a bit of a problem, because here are more cacti-inspired school supplies.
Imagine how much fun it will be scribbling notes and sticking them all over when you have these fun Cactus Sticky Notes!
#5 For Your Inner Librarian (You Know You Have One!)
I miss the old-fashioned stamped date due library cards. I used to like to look back at the list of names of people who had checked out my current read before me and imagine what their lives were like based only on their names. It takes me back to elementary and middle school.
Combine that with the fact that for many years I planned on being a librarian and that I now lend out tons of my own books, and these Classic White Library Cards absolutely had to come home with me!
#6 A Clipboard Just For You
I love using colorful and cute clipboards when I’m not working at my desk in my home office. They make me mobile and provide a solid writing surface for when I’m working in the family room in front of the TV, in bed when I can’t sleep, or in the car while waiting to pick up my kids (this one is fading fast…my youngest gets her license this fall).
#7 Pencils for All the Fandoms
Star Trek, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, Star Wars….
Fandoms are everywhere these days! They bring us together through a shared interest and help us to celebrate the things we love!
Now, you can stake your fandom claim through imprinted pencils like these Harry Potter inspired ones.
Or this Star Wars inspired set!
There are thousands of fandom and non-fandom imprinted pencil options to choose from. The sets above are from The Posh Shop. Definitely check out their excellent selection, or search Etsy and be prepared to have your fan world rocked!
#8 A Plethora of Planners in a Rainbow of Colors
At the beginning of 2017 I discovered bullet journals and my life was never the same!
Imagine creating a completely personalized planner/journal/collection one page at a time….
That’s basically bullet journaling! There’s much more to it, and you can learn everything you ever wanted to know by searching Pinterest or Instagram.
My bullet journal has become part health diary, part memory chronicler, and part planner, and I’m totally and completely hooked!
The Leuchtturm 1917 with dot grids is my choice for bullet journaling, and they’re available in an amazing array of colors.
I started my first bullet journal at the New Year and am about ready to start a new one.
