Back to School/Work Bag Basics

Hello friends, and Happy Friday to you all. Today I’m super excited to share my rendition of a “back to school” video – essentials for your school/work bag! Now, I’m a “far beyond” graduate: the perpetual student. I’ve endured primary school, middle school, four years of high school, four years of college, four years of medical school, and I’m working on my last four years of residency training (only 1.8 more years to go, baby!). While I’m not going to show you my backpack full of Hello Kitty and lollipops, I can show you in the most practical sense what some great things to carry in your book bag are — and indeed, my new favorite way to lug it all around. I hope you enjoy!

    I can’t tell you how many of these items I pinned to my Wish List! By the way are those filofax inserts the ones that come in the KS planner? Or did you buy them from another vendor. I’m definitely switching to the filofax for 2015…I even took a stab at making my own planner dividers with my sister’s scrapbook materials. Put a pick on instagram (pattyaizaga) a few days ago. Thanks for the inspiration. I now NEED a KS Wellesley so I’m on the hunt for one. LOL

      Hi Patty! The filofax has Kate Spade inserts – I like the paper better!

    I love the Whipping Post bag but I’m afraid it won’t fit my 17in laptop. Your thoughts? Would it work with a computer that big?

      That’s a good question that sadly I don’t know the answer to. But you can definitely email them to find out! Their website is I believe!
