It’s time for back to school and that can only mean one thing: school supplies!! As you know, I am seriously addicted to school supplies. Always have been. I was one of those weirdo kids that was in heaven, when it came time to shop for binders, folders, spirals, composition books, etc. I am a sucker for bright colors and good design. Combine the two and you can forget about seeing me for a few hours. These are the designs of my finds this year.

[ From L to R. Click image for more detail ]
Big Lots had these GREAT blank books (they are LARGE) for $5 apiece. I LOVE them so much! They’re made by Planahead and are hardcover, have perforated sheets, title bars and even a built-in ribbon bookmarker!
• I got this composition book at Office Depot. I love the combination of skulls and argyle!
• I found this colorful spiral notebook at Target. It’s made by a division of Mead, called Vision Licensing. It reminds me of the type of doodling I used to do in the 80’s. Love it!
• I got this owl folder at Target.
• I picked up several of these Fat Boy (a division of CarolinaPad) brand spiral notebooks at Target. Love the retro-look of their logo! Reminds me of old bubble gum ads.
• Another design of one of the blank books I picked up at Big Lots.
• Very 80’s composition notebook I picked up at Office Depot. Another CarolinaPad item, in the Times Square collection. You’re probably thinking I got this because it’s rainbow and rainbow=gay these days, but that’s not the reason. I’ve always loved rainbow-colored things, so this was a no-brainer. Simplicity never goes out of style.
• The beautiful rainbow-striped binder I found at Target.

I think the owl folder is my favorite!

I have the same problem/addiction as you. I’m trying to break the habit tho…I buy all these beautiful notebooks and then….they don’t get used, ever. 😦

My favorites are the owl folder and the one before it. That one reminds me of a Peter Max poster I had in the 70’s.
