Top 10 Back to School Supplies

Top 10 Back to School Supplies

November 22, 2019 100 By Stanley Isaacs


Back-to-school season is here, so we’re rounding up our top ten school supplies for 2018. Keep watching to see what’s on our
back-to-school shopping list. The large Doughnut Macaroon is our top backpack pick. It has a roomy interior, plenty of compartments, and even a padded pocket that fits most 15-inch laptops. It’s made from durable cordura nylon fabric, which is sturdy enough for the backpack to last the entire school year. The Macaroon comes in two other sizes as well. Be sure to watch our dedicated video to see an in-depth size comparison. The Maruman Kurufit it is a slim and
lightweight binder option for students who like keeping their subjects in separate places. The flexible cover makes it easy to slip the binder into any bag or backpack, and it’s available in a variety of stylish translucent colors. Opening the rings is simple: just unhook the white tab at the bottom and they’ll
slide apart. You can fill the binder with Maruman paper or any compatible refill, including the Kokuyo Campus dividers for more organization. For other binder options, watch our top binders video in the card above. To keep students’ backpacks from getting too heavy, Kokuyo came out with the Smart Campus Notebook. It’s slightly thinner and lighter than the regular Campus Notebook but the paper quality isn’t sacrificed at all. Like other Kokuyo Campus Notebooks, the paper is printed with the unique dotted rule style. This is handy for writing organized notes, drawing diagrams, and making sections.

that lays flat when opened, with mesh pockets and elastic straps to keep your items in place. The main pouch is nice and spacious,
perfect for keeping larger things or pen sets. The pen case is comfortably padded to protect everything inside so students can toss it into their backpacks without worry. It comes in a variety of bright and neutral colors. The latest addition to the Sarasa family, the Mark On, promises to be smudge-free under highlighter. The Zebra Sarasa line of fast-drying gel pens has been a top recommendation for years. We put it to the test, and the verdict? A+. It holds up well under the Mildliner, which is notorious for smudging gel ink. The Uni Jetstream 4 Multi Pen is our favorite multi pen for students who often need more than one type of writing tool. The Jetstream has one of the best ballpoint ink formulas on the market. It’s super smooth, fast-drying, and even
waterproof. With the Jetstream 4, you can have four colors in one, or have an added mechanical pencil in the 4&1 version. Multi pens combine two or more refills in one pen body, so you don’t have to dig around your bag for a different color or pen. The Stabilo Boss Pastel Highlighter features six beautiful soft shades. The chisel tip has an extra 2 mm edge that is excellent for underlining important words. Plus, they have a four hour dry out
protection, just in case you forget to cap them. If you want a thinner highlighter, the Stabilo Swing Cool Highlighter offers the same soft colors as the Pastel Boss. The Pilot Delful is a great shaker pencil to start with. It has a wide and comfortable grip, and the tip retracts into the body, making it safe to carry in a pocket or bag. We like recommending shaker pencils to
students because they’re so convenient to use. Simply give the pencil a slight shake to advance the lead. That way, you don’t have to regrip and interrupt your writing. You can’t go wrong with any of Sakura’s
erasers. But since it can get messy in a student’s pen case, we picked the retractable Sumo Grip. The plastic case keeps the eraser protected and pristine inside a pencil case. The Sumo Grip erases cleanly with minimal pressure, making it easy on your hands and gentle on the paper. Its long thin shape ensures that you will always have a sharp edge or corner for a precise erase. Whether it’s for a geometry class or an art project, the Kutsuwa Stad Ruler Set has everything a student needs. The black rulers and protractor have a slip-resistant backing, so they’ll stay in place while you use them. The measurements on the black rulers start at the very edge of the ruler, getting rid of that gap that can get in the way of measuring some items. We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing our recommendations to help get you through the school year. What’s on your back-to-school shopping
