school supplies!

  1. okay I am a major office supply geek to begin with, but I just can't wait to buy my school supplies for the fall. I already bought a very cool Nike binder. It's a 3 ring binder and it also has an accordian file built in, along w/ lots of pockets and pen holders. It's exactly what I needed so I went ahead and bought it. I am trying to wait until Georgia has their sales tax holiday to buy the rest of my stuff, but it is killing me. I want to go ahead and get it all now so I can play and get all organized! anyone else feel this way or am I the only office supply geek?

    If you guys are geeks so am I!!! :chuckle Not only can I not wait to buy my school supplies - I can't wait to buy supplies for my son!!! Good grief! Is there anyone else out there that gets excited when a new color of post-its comes out!!! My part time job is in a art/school supply store and I see soooooo many cool things there when I work I want to buy them all!!!

    oh man, i just saw a pack of post-it's last night that I wanted to get so bad! they were all pink, but each post it pad changed shades of pink from light to dark. they were just sooo pretty! i think I am gonna have to go get them. I also saw a highlighter that also had those post it "flags" built in, which I also thought was way cool. School supply geeks unite!

    At my second job - they have retractable highliters!!!!!

    Hmmmm...guess what I bought last Thursday when I worked???

    Those post-it's sound pretty cool!!! :angryfire It stinks that they are soooo expensive!!! I like the gold and silver ones.
    I'm so pathetic that for Christmas last year my b/f got me a post-it despenser!!! Boy does he ever know what I like!!!

    I'm also a geek. I went to Wal-Mart today and got the 25 cent notebooks along with 15 cent folders. I color coordinate my folders and notebooks for each subject. Nerdy, but practical. I've already bought highlighters, and a planner, with different colored pens for writing things like blue for assignments, red for tests, green for clinical dates, etc. I just can't wait until my bp cuff comes so I can practice on my hubby. :chuckle

    It is not an issue of being a GEEK, it is absolutely necessary, in order to keep up with all the information that will be given to you. Within each notebook, I suggest you add a calendar (full page type) to keep an at a glance view of what assignments are due.

    The funny thing about being will see the other student picking up on your system.

    lol. i remember in grade school when i used to be sooo excited about getting my markers, crayons, notebooks.. that was the highlight of the first week of school for me. but when i got to high school, getting new supplies seemed "eh.".

    now that im entering nursing school, i cant wait! haha. im so excited to get my steth, bp set, etc... im planning to buy my notebooks, folders, etc. in the near future too.

    Not only have I bought my school supplies and ordered my books, uniforms, and clinical supplies--I actually have my bag packed for the first day of school! My oldest daughter and I packed our bags last night. The 2 younger kids are NOT interested in getting ready for school yet.

    I'm not actually starting my "nursing" curriculum till next fall - I'm taking general classes this year. But I've already started buying book for nursing school. And I plan on buying my steth, uniforms, and anything else I can think of by next summer.

    That is a great idea about keeping a calendar to keep yourself abreast about what assignments are due. Thanks!!!!
