Back to School Supplies, Bags, & Backpacks that are ACTUALLY cute | Roundup

So if you know me or have been following me for awhile you would know I hate school…so this time of the year was never too exciting for me growing up haha! The only good part was back to school shopping! I love picking out new clothing, book bags, and school supplies. It makes school that much more bearable ūüėȬ†I posted on my Instagram story the other day that I was looking for a cute tote to use this fall. While looking through your suggestions and doing some searching of my I own I found so many! I was asked to share some of my favorites so I decided to make it a full post and add some other cute supplies! Check out my picks above with links below, you can zoom if it’s too small (I have bad eyesight and I was kind of struggling to see haha)!
