    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on these folders.

    Promising review: "I've been using this folder for two or three months and I'm a college student with a lot of papers to carry. I was looking for something cute and easy to carry that would fit manila folders and overall keep my smaller folders from getting crinkly. This DID IT. I can't express how much I love this — I ordered a second one that's coming soon! I use manila folders for A LOT of things and even the divider on them fits below the strap that keeps this larger folder closed. Nothing gets crinkled or bent and it's great. I can throw looseleaf papers, folders, or even books or small notebooks in here. It's adorable and a great color as well. I highly recommend this folder (I got a lot of compliments on it too!)." —Alexa Viz

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in seven colors).

    2. An LOL-worthy tape dispenser in the form of a sloth wearing a sweatband as an inspirational reminder that we can all do anything we set our minds to. If this dude can manage to work up a sweat, you can sure as heck can meet that deadline.

    3. Fine-tip Totoro pens for anyone who wishes they could commute via cat bus.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These adorable pens have become my favorites because of the ultra-thin line of ink they put down. They don't skip when writing. The caps fit securely on either end so I don't worry about them coming off in my purse or losing them while I'm writing. I was pleased by how well each pen had been packed in its own plastic sleeve, so that if one pen had leaked it wouldn't have ruined the others. I'm glad I purchased these. They're such cute pens." —Radar626

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $9.88.

    4. A pretty jar of mini macaron erasers, because you're bound to make a few mistakes even if you're one smart cookie.

    urbanoutfitters.com

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are super cute correction tapes and are great for any stationery lover! Each tape was individually packaged. They're small and super cute! They fit into my pencil case along with other stationery items. I would buy these again. They'd also make a great gift for anyone who likes cute stuff for back-to-school!" —MEW

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $7.95.

    6. Charmingly snarky jumbo sticky notes to help you be a little more enthusiastic (and realistic) about your to-do list. My personal favorite part is how you can check "Completed" or "Retreated" at the bottom.

    amazon.com

    These notes get me.

    Promising review: "Honestly, I'm really not sure how I lived without these before. Being able to sit down at the end of the night and think about what you MUST do the next day versus what would be nice to accomplish is such a handy way of organizing things. It makes tasks feel much smaller and more manageable. This is my new favorite Knock Knock product — and that's saying a lot, because the brand has so much cool stuff." —Cynthia

    Promising review: "I bought these as part of a gift to my sister-in-law when she went to nursing school. She absolutely loved them and so did all her friends. She said they worked great, the caps stayed on fine, the colors were vibrant, the ink didn't leak through any of her book pages, and they were a fun item to have in classes. Everyone, including her professors, asked where she got them and wanted some for themselves. It's two years later and she's just about to graduate. She still has these highlighters although she wore out the ink in the yellow one, the rest are still working." —Pamela

    Promising review: "I keep it on my office desk to help clean off crumbs and dust. It's no louder than a hairdryer and has decent suction. It sucks up crumbs and dust without any problem. I've also used it on my craft table to suck up glitter and other small paper scraps, and again it worked seamlessly. It's a great little gadget to have on hand in several situations. I might just get another." —D. Phillips
