    1. A Panda Planner sticky notes booklet — which features three sticky note styles — so you’ll always have a convenient place to write down notes.

    The booklet includes 60 ruled lined notes, 40 dotted notes, and 40 blank notes.

    Promising review: “These work great for me. I love the handy folder pack to stick in my everyday bag. The sticky part is a good inch wide. And I can stick a note in my planner and move it as much as seven times without the sticky wearing off.” —Amazon Customer 

    Price: $9.97

    2. A superchic blouse with a cute tie-waist you can pair with all your favorite jeans and skirts.,

    Promising review: “After reading the comments, I decided to order this shirt in a size smaller than usual. I am 5'10” and about 145lbs. I typically wear mediums but I ordered a small. And I'm so glad I did. This shirt is boxy and large. But once you tie it with the sash, it looks perfect! I feel like I can wear this to work with a fun statement necklace and feel super comfortable while still looking put-together! I would highly recommend it.” —ARJTL 

    Price: $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors)

    3. A pack of Ticonderoga pencils to hold you down while taking notes, completing homework, or any other written tasks.

    Promising review: “You can't go wrong with Ticonderoga pencils. They always sharpen to a fine point and write well. And you can't count on that from some cheap pencils! I've had to throw out pencils because the lead was crooked inside the wood casing. That’s never a problem with Ticonderoga pencils.” —B. Whit

    Price: $5.97

    4. A set of gold and cement pots so you can dress up your favorite plants.

    The set includes three pots.

    Promising review: “These planters are clearly the most awesome planters on Amazon. They're stylish and always catch the eye of my house guests. The gold sparkles in the sunlight. One thing to think about would be the concrete material. It does tend to suck the water out of a plant, such as a succulent. So opt for an air plant, as the posting states. I’m very happy with these planters and considering buying a second set.” —GW 

    Price: $27.98

    5. A pack of college-rule paper so you won’t have to borrow any sheets from your bestie — at least for the first few months of the new school year.

    The pack includes 500 sheets each.

    Promising review: “This paper serves its purpose and fits in my binders perfectly. I have a preference for 11"x8" loose-leaf paper because of the area and margins. And this brand was the most reasonably priced for what I was looking for. I have no complaints.” —C.G. 

    Price: $9.50

    6. A pack of alcohol-free Babyganics hand sanitizer for keeping germs far away from yourself AND your little one.

    Promising review: “These are great! They foam up like hand soap from Target, and they leave your hands feeling nice and moisturized! I've always used Purell brand, and it makes my hands feel like the Sahara Desert. I hope this stuff is as effective at killing bacteria because I never want to use that other style again! Also, for you new baby people, order nine of these. You need one for the nanny, one for each car, one for each room, and one for the diaper bag. It's ridiculous.” —Dylan 

    Price: $14.59+ (available in fragrance-free and mandarin)

    7. An adorable set of headbands that'll have your baby's hair looking like PERFECTION.

    The set includes 20 bows.

    Promising review: “This is such a good deal! And there are so many colors! They fit my baby when she was 6 months old. She is 9 months now, and they still fit her. I’ve had no problems with wear and tear. They all look the same as they did when we bought them!” —Amy 

    Price: $10.88

    8. An Out of Print bag you can use as a pencil case or even a cute pouch to hold makeup or other loose items in your backpack or tote.

    Promising review: “This pouch is really a great size. It's made out of an almost canvas-like material. So it is sturdy but still looks really beautiful. I also bought the Prayers of Jane Austen book and it fits right inside, which is really convenient.” —Shann

    Price: $12.25

    9. A pack of medium-point Paper Mate Flair pens you can use for drawing, taking notes, or even decorating your planner.

    The pack includes 24 felt-tip pins. 

    Promising review: “Any teacher knows that Paper Mate Flair pens are our favorite! I cannot make it through my school year without purchasing multiple sets of these pens to use in my classroom. Not only do I love to use them in my classroom, but I also prefer them to write with at home or anytime. These pens are the cat's meow! As long as there are teachers, there should always be Flair pens!” —VLK76

    Price: $20.02

    10. A lovely set of gold ear cuffs so you can switch up your accessory looks without having to get any new piercings.

    Promising review: “I wear at least one of these almost every day. Sometimes I shower in them. I try to make sure they stay on well and are tight. So far, they have not changed color or oxidized, at all. I would definitely recommend this as an alternative for a piercing.” —LanguidJen

    Price: $11.80

    11. A set of Schoolworks scissors for replenishing a classroom with some easy-to-use and little-one-friendly cutting tools. The set includes 12 pairs of scissors.

    Promising review: “This is a great value for a bunch of rounded scissors for a group of kids. Plus, adults won't try to steal these from you because they are clearly for kids. But they cut well and work for most craft projects, including projects using fabric and fleece.” —Carrie O

    Price: $12.71

    12. An adorable lunch bag so you can carry your meals around in serious style.

    Promising review: “I just got this lunch bag today, and I couldn't wait to try it out by putting it inside the container I usually use to bring my lunch and snacks on. All of them fit! It's amazing. I love it! This lunch bag is so cute. It's made out of a good nice-looking fabric and design. I’d totally recommended it!” —Tatiana Martinez

    Price: $11.99

    13. A pack of three-ring binders for bringing some order to those endless notes, worksheets, and other important papers strewn about in different places.

    The pack includes four binders. 

    Promising review: “These binders are great! They are cheaper than what you can find at office supply stores and box stores, even when I used to buy the 12-packs at Staples. And they are very nice quality. The rings are very sturdy and really do hold an inch of paper without pulling open and losing sheets from the middle. They also have all the pockets I like in a binder, including clear sleeves on the spine and both covers and an inner pocket on each side. I use them every day for a full college semester, and they still work well and look good.” —TheColorNerd

Price: $9.89+ (available in three sizes and three colors)

    14. A simple sleeveless tank dress you can easily dress up or down for some fabulous looks.,

    Promising review: “This dress is exactly what I expected and was a perfect fit! I am 5’5”, 135 lbs, and 32DDD. I wear a size 6. It is a perfect fit. Having larger breasts, it’s hard to find a good fit. I will definitely be purchasing more of these dresses for the summer. They are made from a nice light cotton and are exactly what I was looking for.” —Gloria 

    Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and 44 colors)

    15. A pack of Bic highlighters so you won’t forget any important passages in your textbooks or while studying your class notes.

    The pack includes five highlighters. 

    Promising review: “These are exactly what they look like and what's described, just like then ones you buy at an office supply store. They worked great for me. I was wanting a thinner highlighter that was less inky, and these are perfect. They are thin and they do not release too much ink like other highlighters. And they don’t leak through pages.” —Jazz

    Price: $3.29

    16. A copy of Educated to follow Tara Westover’s quest to redefine herself after abandoning her survivalist upbringing for a new way of life.

    Promising review: “For me, this is a story about a family tragically undervaluing its daughters and overvaluing its sons. This is a sadly common story in American families, although the physical trauma makes this story so much worse and gripping. This has been an extremely thought-provoking read for me. And I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys memoirs.” —Beader

    Price: $12.99+

    17. A leak-proof Bentgo lunch box, which'll make sure your kid’s tasty meals are perfectly portioned and won’t make a mess in their lunch bag or backpack if the container gets tipped over.

    Promising review: “This is a little on the heavy side, but worth it for the durability. My 5-year-old has been using this for five months, and he loves it. And I love it, too. You can get creative, so he tends to get less bored with his lunches. It washes perfectly, no matter what I have put into it. I’ve had no mold issues, no cracking, no sealing issues, and no leaking. Yes, it is small. But it works perfectly for us.” —Monica B 

    Price: $27.99 (available in blue, green, and purple)

    18. A fierce galaxy backpack that’ll make every stroll around campus magical AF.

    Promising review: “This backpack is amazing! It came super fast, the colors are almost exactly the same as the picture, it's sturdy, and is actually pretty roomy! And it has a secret pocket in the back. I didn't notice it at first. But now I use it to hold my wallet and gum. This backpack is amazing.” —Jaycee

    Price: $25 (available in 16 styles)

    19. A Brown Sugar Bear saver, which helps keep moisture in your brown-sugar container for three to six months, so it stays soft and clump-free.,

    Promising review: “I bought a Costco-sized bag of brown sugar because we use it so much. I wanted to put it in a container. But I was nervous about it getting hard. I remembered my friend had one of these, and she said it worked. I was a little skeptical, but it totally works. I like that you can use it to keep things dry, as well. Soak it for 20 minutes in water to keep things moist. Or place it in spices without soaking to keep things dry.” —RJW 

    Price: $6.31 (also available in three other shapes)

    20. A pack of Elmer's glow-in-the-dark glue to take all your art projects to epic new levels — especially your next batch of homemade slime.,

    The four-pack includes two bottles of natural, one bottle of pink, and one bottle of blue glue.

    Promising review: “If you thought you loved the regular Elmer's glue, you are going to really love this! The glow-in-the-dark feature is fantastic. It's very useful for many projects. But what it's most fun for making is new and different slime. The container is the same as other glue. Simply twist the top and squeeze. Of course, if you are making slime, simply unscrew the top. I was pretty excited to try this out in the dark. As always, I need to know a product actually does what it says it does. And, yes, it does glow in the dark!" —Olivia

    Price: $15.91
