To kick off the start of the Fall 2016 semester, embrace these wise words by Dr. Seuss…

“You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.”

So, steer yourself in the right direction with these back to school essentials.

We, the 224 interns, compiled a list of the items we deem as absolute must-haves for the dreaded return of school.

Let’s get down to business and talk about our top 10:

• PLANNERS - It’s hard to keep it all together with so many credits and extra-curriculars, which is why everyone needs this handy dandy tool. It’s perfect for keeping the mess you call your life organized in one place.

• GEL PENS – These throwback 90s pens make note-taking fun by adding a dash of color to your normally boring notes with these smooth, vibrant pens. Ultimately achieving major color goals.

• BACKPACK- Stray away from drab and get a backpack in a unique pattern or design. Grab 12 friends and you can even use 224 Apparel to customize your own. Say whaaaa?

• PORTABLE CHARGER- A game changer, I repeat a game changer. Everyone’s phone dies from time to time, which is why it’s time to invest in a portable charger to come to your phone’s rescue. AKA a life saver!

• COFFEE MUG- Nothin’ wakes you up quite like a hot cup of coffee, in a cute, little inspirational mug.

• TUMBLER- It’s important to hydrate when you’re on the go. Store your water in a colorful tumbler instead of a plain old plastic bottle. And save the earth at the same time ;)

• ALARM CLOCK- We all know it’s a dread to wake up in the morning and how easy it is to hit the snooze button. So why not purchase an actual alarm clock to help you get up or get a nifty high tech Alarm Clock App that monitors your sleep and wakes you up at the perfect time … well, maybe? (It’s worth a shot!)

• PENCIL CASE- Store all your pencils and gel pens in style with a trendy pencil case, like the Cactus one shown above. Not a cactus fan? No problem. There is a plethora of options to choose from. Make it a conversation piece!

• FLASH DRIVE- Projects, notes, papers…trust me, you’ll need one. Toss the dinky old flash drive aside and save all those bad boys on a head turning, yellow minion USB drive or whoever your favorite character is! You’ll be less likely to lose it.

• WHITE TEE- Everyone needs a white tee that pairs with anything and everything, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Which is why ours is the perfect addition to your closet with a white on white crisp look! Get your own White Tee now at ;)
