Binders and Folders and Paper, Oh My!

The theme over at Heads or Tails today is "Supply."

School supplies make me giddy! The smell, the texture, the freshness, the possibilities!
Let’s go shopping! (Target has some great selections.)
3 ring binder with pockets in the front and back and a zip closure, navy blue.
Hot pink folder with brads and pockets.
Wide-ruled filler paper.
Colorful post-it notes.
A new package of ball-point pens.
A Sharpie in standard black.
A wireless notebook (I hate those little spiral-y thingies that fall out when you tear a sheet out of a spiral notebook.)

A new planner absolutely makes my heart skip a beat! I need to be able to see a week at a time and have plenty of space to write daily reminders and events. There has to be a place for names, addresses, and phone numbers and a month-at-a-glance. Oh, it has to be cute! Here are two I have my eye on from Barnes and Noble. Which one would you choose?

That’s it for me. Now, I wonder what the kids need?
(With this topic, would you really expect a teacher to write about something other than school supplies? I didn't think so!)

Thank you, Skittles, for hosting HoT!

  4. Purple? Did I see purple? I'd pick purple...anything purple. Can you guess that I like purple?

    It's really hard to believe that it's time for school supplies already.

    Have a great day [my HoT supply is posted.].

  8. My daughter is 6 and starting 1st grade next week. She went absolutely wild with the whole school supply thing. It was fun to watch, but not so fun to pay for. Oh well, at least she's excited about learing, I think...

  9. I love school supplies!

  10. I always liked the smell of crayons in school the first week.

    We were at Staples and I was mesmerized by the post it not selection!

    I agree on the wide rule paper rather than college ruled.

    Wireless notebook, I thought you were talking of a lap top computer.

    Have a great day. I like your little pink profile flower.

  14. I love writing supplies even though a computer holds most of my 'stuff'. Your post is great ~ I'm thinking the butterfly diary is choice!

  15. Your post almost has me smelling paste and crayons! Happy HoT.

  16. This year is the first year in a long time where I haven't had to buy school supplies...Two of my girls are done school, and the 15 year old wanted to buy her own...(my stuff just isn't cool enough..) and my one year old

  17. I subscribed to your feed! I love school supplies too, but I always want to buy new everything even though I still have new supplies from last year that I never even used. BTW, I would choose the butterfly notebook!
