School Supplies: Part 1

A favorite back-to-school ritual is stocking up on new school supplies. Whether you need fresh notebooks or a new pencil case, there are plenty of colorful options on store shelves this year. Here are some supplies TFK's editors want in their backpacks. 


1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle 2 Pocket Portfolio, available at Target ($1.00)

Fans of the Nickelodeon cartoon can show off their turtle pride with this TMNT folder.


2. Crayola Wild Notes 1 Subject Notebook, available at Toys R Us and other nationwide stores ($5.99)

Write wild notes with this notebook full of ruled black pages. The included metallic marker will help your notes jump off the page.


3. Slap Ruler Bracelets, available at Target ($2.99)

With this ruler that you can wear around your wrist, you'll always have one on hand.


4. Fashion Angels Duct Tape, available at Target ($3.49 each)

Try making your own pencil case with colorful duct tape, available in assorted patterns.


5. BIC Brite Liner Highlighter Tape, 2 -pack, available at office supply stores ($5.80)

Like whiteout dispensers, this highlighter tape can be tricky to use at first, but it glides nicely over text and erases easily.


6. Bic Round Stic Grip Colors, 8-pack of pens, available at office supply stores ($2.75)

Brighten up your notes with these ballpoint pens, filled with assorted interesting ink colors. But remember to stick to traditional black and blue pens and pencils when taking tests!
