I'm going to be focus on "college" tips and essential but I'm pretty sure that everything apply for any student who is going back to school. Also, I'm going to be sharing links to Shein Online Store, Dollar Tree, and Romwe Online Store. So let's start.


The supplies that I'm going to be mention here are the essential supplies that you must have when you're going to college. I'm going to be listing them below with a link to a place where you can buy them at low prices. Some of the things that I will be  mention here you can do it yourself, if you want me to do a video on how to do it yourself let me know in the comment section below. 

1. Board - This board can be for chalk or markers, I really prefer markers because it more easy and less messy. Obviously with the board comes the markers and the chalk. So I'm going to be list them below.

2. Pens, highlighters, pencils in different colors - I know that it seems super simple, because it is but they're essential even in college and  they would help you study much better, take better notes and be creative.

4. Color paper- In addition to the normal with paper and the one with lines, buy some color papers so that way you can organize your topics by color or classes.

5. Paper clips - Paper clips? That's right! They're very useful and you can put it and take it whenever you want which for me is more practican that the clips of the stapler.

9. Organizers - It's very important to stay organized because everything is more easy that way. I know is more easy say it than do it. Some organizer can be folders, fillings, pencil cases, paper trays, among other things.

Also, you will need a planner that you can carry with you everywhere. You can use one planner for all or use individual planners per classes or subjects, its really up to you.

11. Coffee mug to go & Water Bottle - They're very convenient specially in college because sometimes you would not have time to drink your coffee in the morning because you're late or have something to do so this things come very handy. You will regret not having one.

12. No. 2 pencil, sharpener and rule set - They're pretty simple and I know that much of you have them already but if you don't have it you should. Even though they're pretty basic they're essential especially when the mechanical pencil doesn't have tip, or you just forgotten or lose them.

13. Printer - It's pretty simple and obvious, but some people think that if they go to the library is more economic that buy the ink yourself when it's more cost-effective buy the ink and have a printer always accesible to you (specially if you're in a major that requires a lot of reading and projects). If you're living in a dorm or apartment with other people you can divide the cost between all and that way everyone save money. 

14. Pencil cases- I really recommend a big one and then small pencil case that can be inside the big one, so that way you can have everything organize.

Every person is different which means that what works for me isn't the same that works for you, but I will be making my best effort to share with you "objective" tips that can apply to everyone or almost everyone. I hope that they're very useful. Here are some of my tips:

1. Write down everything- During your class make sure that you write everything that the professor says or at least what you think is. 

2. Colors - when you're going to take notes and study use pen colors, color pencil, crayons, highlighters, color paper and everything that comes in different colors. Why? Because it will help you to memorize by associating color with topics and importance. 

3. Study place - when your going to study, make sure that the place you choose is a place without distraction. This is something that is different for everyone, but even though you can study with noises, make sure that they're too loud or distracted. 

4. Super size - it's better when you study with big things like a board in where you can write down everything and practice what you know and what you don't.

5. Organization - Use a different notebook, notepad or sections to write down your notes and do your study reviews. It will help you to study better and you can find more easy the topics or subjects. 

6. Study space - If your're going to make your own study space make sure to have a comfy and practical space where you can have all the things that you need near you. 

7. Prepare - Before think study with people make sure that you study alone and you know a good amount of the material. 

8. Team Work - Be sure to make some friends in your classes so that way you can do study groups in where you can share the things that you know and ask the things that you have doubts. They're pretty good, helpful and also you have a great time. 


1. Night light - You're going to need it, because when you're in college it's almost 100% guarantee that your going to stay awake all night. 

2. Coffee/tea maker - Doesn't need explanation. 

3. Desk/Table

4. Mini Fridge - They will be perfect to have your study snacks and drinks near your desk or table.  

5. Steam - Believe you will need it for those presentation days or interviews. They're super easy and super quick. 

6. Alarm Clock - But I have my phone!! Yeah but sometimes they just decide to died in the middle of the night, which means that we wake up late or never wake up for the class. I know, I  have experienced it myself! haha

7. Bath Shoes & Gown - Yeah would need them, specially if you're in a dorm where you have common bath. They're super comfy and practical. Also, they're part of the clothing essentials that you must have when you're going to college.

Clothing Essentials:

When we're going to start a new year at school or college we want to look good and there is nothing wrong with that, but I' m going to be sharing with you some clothing pieces that you should have in your closet that are more than "pretty" and "fashion", are needed.

1. Sweater & hoodies - They'e definitely are my favorites, because they're super comfy and easy to wear with anything. I usually have like 5 -10 including jackets so I can make different outfits. 

2. Jeans & Shorts - Super mega essentials for the day by day school outfits. They're pretty easy to combine or pair. I usually have like 5 jeans (including leggings) and 2-3 shorts.


3. Plain T-shirts - Super basic and necessary, also they're very neutral and you don't have to think much with what you have to pair it. I recommend have one of every color and buy some with more that one color on it. 

4. Sneakers - Super comfy, specially when you have to walk all day. More basic, white and black sneakers. 

5. Big Scarf - They have a more than one purpose, they can be use as a normal scarf or you can use them as a little blanket for the cold or if you want to study outside in the grass. Also you can add style to your outfit with them, pretty nice, right?

I hope that you like the post, if you do don't forget to share with your friends! I will be uploading soon a back to school video, so stay tune to my YouTube channel: Behind OPS
