This year, I’m using this backpack from Vera Bradley. I find that it’s the perfect size to fit everything I need! So, let’s get into how I organize my bag.

Main (Big) Pouch

Here, I like to keep all the main school essentials such as my laptop, notebooks, folders, and binders. In addition to these, I keep my pencil case and planner there too. All the important things I need for school.

Second (Medium) Pouch

This is the most important pouch for me. This is where I keep my nail file, body spray, my laptop charger, iPhone cord and portable charger, Advil, and Pamprin here. So basically, this pouch has everything I could possibly need for an emergency.

Front (Small) Pouch

I keep my calculator and my pouch here. I highly recommend every girl has one. I use mine to keep small odds and ends such as hair ties, bobby pins, and feminine products, and bandaids here. Super helpful!

Side Pouches

Besides keeping my water bottle here (I use a CamelBak! Super great for staying hydrated), I keep my Apple earbuds, gum, and chapstick. This is a great spot for them since it’s so easy to grab something when you ned it!

One thing not mentioned in the breakdown is where I keep my hand sanitizer. I love, love, LOVE! the Bath & Body Works ones. Plus, they have super cute holders for them. I usually keep this on the strap of my backpack.

That’s it for my backpack essentials! Stay tuned for the next B2S post!
