School Supplies We Loved When We Were Little [Photos]

I'd like to thank the 90s for fueling my love for school supply shopping. To this day, I get giddy at the thought of heading out to Target and Office Max in late August (all the pen possibilities!). But as I roam the aisles, I notice that things just aren't as jazzed up as they used to be.

Old School School Supplies

Back in the good old days, returning to school meant one thing: new school supplies! Colorful binders, cool erasers and general shenanigans made going back to elementary school that much more exciting. Lisa Frank, how I’ve missed you. Now, if only I could justify purchasing gel pens and bright colored notecards for college…

8 Under $20: J. Crew’s Having a Sale

One of my favorite places to shop before school is J.Crew. Everything about it is sophisticated, fresh and fabulous. But my only issue with the store is that all that sophistication doesn't come cheap. Sometimes I'll walk in, pick up a cute skinny belt for my new pencil skirt (from Marshalls...), look at the price tag and try not to strangle myself with it.

Talk about a brutally long scene of events.

Web Spy: Homeslyce

Pretty much every store has sales on back-to-school essentials this time of year, so you could just head to Bed Bath & Beyond or Walmart to pick up everything you need. But that's not always the best option, especially if you go to school in a major city like I did and you don't have a car. (Or if the people of Walmart scare you...) Let me tell you, lugging giant Target and JC Penney bags on to the NYC subway and bus wasn't exactly easy (or fun).
