215 Comments on Jet Pens Too Cool For School Giveaway

  1. My favorite part about going back to school is getting the school supplies list and looking for stationary stuff in the store

  2. It was getting all my textbooks and exercise books ready – that meant wrapping them in plastic, writing my name and then putting them neatly in a stack. Then it was getting my school uniform, shoes and socks ready. I’m still in school (only that I’m a teacher now) and I have a similar routine, but this time, it involves more stationery that I don’t quite need but love to have. And that makes getting back to school all the better =)

  3. I loved getting everything organized and in its place…not that it lasted for very long. I also loved cracking open a new agenda book and listing all the fun things for that semester!

  4. My favorite part of going back to school is the introduction of a routine. I finally feel like i’m doing something productive again!!

  5. I looked forward to getting a new box of crayons (this was back in the day when the school provided all our school supplies). I loved coming into the classroom and finding my desk with my name tag on it.

  6. Smelling brand new pens, finding order in small things again after blissfull chaos of summer. And now, doing it all over again for my third child.

  7. I loved every bit of supplies from fresh new pencils, to loose leaf paper and a Trapper Keeper but notebooks, lined paper in spiral bound notebooks, that was what really made me squeal with joy!

  8. New school supplies – absolutely! This was pre-Target, when you bought your stuff in an old school bookstore that also sold office/school/art supplies. You bought pens one at a time … By high school I fell in love with the Shaffer ball points that my Mom used – refillable ink cartridges! Special stickers to decorate the folders and notebooks. The occasional denim-covered 3-ring-binder … Ahh!
