As usual, let’s start this post with an inspirational and somewhat comical post.

“Everything that irritates us about others, can lead us to a greater understanding about ourselves.Carl Jung

This post is really dedicated to the students that love buying supplies for college classes and want to stay organized with classes. I recommend these all to stay organized and succeed at the end of the semester!

I highly recommend getting a planner before starting each semester. Planner types can vary and can cost anywhere between $4-60. Depending on the purpose of the planner, these can really keep you organized with classes, assignments, quizzes, and big exams. Planners are available in paper and digital styles. If you don’t want to spend money on a planner, students can also use free calendars such as Ical or Google Calendar to stay organized!


I know this one seems silly, but you’ll be surprised at how many college students show up to class with one pen or only one pencil. If you lose that pencil you’ll be out of materials to write notes or do in-class assignments. As a pen snob through and through I recommend Muji gel pens! They are amazing!

Lihit Lab Aqua Drops Twist Ring Notebooks

The LihitLab journals from are so amazing! I highly recommend these styles of journals! They have a detachable spine so that students can add or take out the paper. No ripping required with these journals! These are super inexpensive and definitely comes in so many different colors.

Correction Tape + Eraser

If you’re like me and don’t like the traditional white out with applicator brush, I highly recommend the Tombow Mono 2Way Correction Tape + Eraser tool from This dual-sided tool is really helpful for correcting notes and is easy to have on hand. The site even sells refills so you’re not throwing away the tool after each use.

What tools are you guys using to stay organized during the semester? Let me know in the comments down below! Thanks, everyone!


Kayla Savoy

Hey there! I promise finding this author’s note and stumbling across my blog page is no accident. My goal at the end of the day is to hopefully get you laughing, encouraged, or ready to make a change in your life. Now back to basics. My name is Kayla Savoy and this is my second year here at Montgomery College. Although I transfered from a different Community college halfway through my first year, I decided to make the switch and study Interior Design here on the Rockville campus! My goal after graduating is to transfer to Marymount University where I will continue my path to becoming an Interior Designer!

In my spare time you might catch me walking along campus helping other students as part of my job as a Peer Navigator or hiding out in Macklin Tower playing the Sims 4! Although Interior Design is my passion for my ocupation, I have found comfort in designing stickers and writing on my own personal blog ‘Accidentally Fluffy.’

Hobbies aside, I know what it’s like to be a college student and see each phase and go through every struggle. I understand the late nights, the “I haven’t eaten in four days”, I even understand the procrastination and overwhelming desire to give up when classes get hard. I hope you view this blog as a safe haven and a place where you can get a quick laugh and not feel judged. I hope you feel empowered enough at the end of each post to search for the opportunities offered here at MC as well!
