What Every Student Needs

What Every Student Needs

So I did a post about what I take with me in my school bag every day and decided to do a more specific post about what items I always have in my pencil case. Since absolutely no one asked this what I carry in my pencil case and why you should always carry these items too. Here’s what every student needs:


You almost always have to write at some point every day even if you tend to type your notes. A pen and pencil is definitely a must have for students.

Highlighters- You never know when you need to highlight something. It really helps to have one with you though in case you need to remember something specific.

Paperclips- This one sounds a little random but trust me you’ll need paperclips way more often than you think. It always helps to have a few paperclips with you because you tend to get a lot of papers and it helps keep you organized.

Rubberband- Again you’ll need these way more than you think you will. It’ll help keep stuff together, work as a hairband, help stop you from yelling in public by flicking it on your wrist every time you’re frustrated…

Whiteout- It looks neater to use whiteout instead of cancelling something every 5 seconds. It just makes your notes looks more neat and help when you’re rereading them.


Clearly stationery is important whether you’re a student in school, college or university or even just someone who likes stationery. I’m one of those weird people who loves collecting stationery and thought I would leave a link to a post I really enjoyed that talks much more specifically about stationery and where to find the best kind.

  1. As a former educator I love what every student should have in their pencil case.
    Love this…Dr. Cynthia Viola Harris

    1. Thank you!!

  2. An empties out smelly marker to hide notes in to better hand around class under the teachers nose

    1. Haha of course 😜

  3. I’ve upgraded to a laptop so I hardly write anything down. I carry around a few pens and some highlighters. My highlighters mysteriously went missing/dried out/got chewed up by the cat so I really need to buy more highlighters. My favorite 4-colored pen also went missing and this time, I don’t think the backpack monster ate it. I think Timon monster or Beccasaurus took it.

    1. CW Pencils sells some awesome multi-color pencils and highlighter pencils. They can be purchased online.

      1. Thanks for the suggestion, Laci!😊 I honestly cannot remember the last time I bought something online. I might be a Millennial but I am quite old fashioned 😂

        1. The actual store is located in New York, that is why I mentioned buying online! And there is nothing wrong with that, I prefer buying in person too.

          1. Now that you mentioned it, I’m going to check out their website. The multi-colored pencils/highlighters intrigue me! 🙌 Honestly, I wish I lived in the US – if I did I would definitely be buying more stuff online!

    2. Yeah a lot of people use their laptops but I think it’s still always a good idea to carry around some pens/highlighters.

  4. I’m no longer in school but I still use pencils and carry them in a custom wrap that goes on my journal. I also carry a highlighter pencil.

    1. Yeah I think they are useful items to have even in general!

  5. “Since absolutely no one asked . . .” You’re funny Pooja!

    1. Haha thanks I’m glad you enjoy my sense of humor!

  6. what about a tiny stapler?

    1. That’s super helpful too but I prefer paperclips!

    2. Oh those tiny staplers are so cute lol!

      1. and quite handy!

  7. I absolutely love posts like this. I always carry a pen, highlighter, and my own DIY planner that I made because I have to write EVERYTHING down.

    1. Writing everything down is so helpful!

  8. Thanks it’s really helpful 😊

    1. Glad to hear that!

  9. Love it! Have any pencil case recommendations? I use a Push Case myself

  10. Love the article 🙂
