• Back to School: DIY School Supplies Upgrade

    August 10, 2015 Kelly Baum

    I love back to school season! I may be going into my (hopefully) final year of college and I still love shopping for school supplies! Now, there’s a lot of supplies in stores that have really chic, adorable prints but they’re expensive-I have spending $5 per folder when they’ll wear out in 6 months! So, I decided to go to Staples, grab some of the super cheap school supplies deals, and do some of my own DIY school supplies upgrades!…
