While we’re spending more time indoors, it’s essential to create an environment that encourages learning, fosters creativity and inspires a positive space for growth, whether that’s inside the classroom, online or homeschooling.

Set up for success

at home

Whether you’re taking online classes or homeschooling, consider creating a workstation in your home. As inviting as the couch (or bed!) may be, putting together a dedicated study space will create an environment that helps you focus and work comfortably. Think bins or baskets to keep things organized, photographs or artwork to add a personal touch, plants for some greenery, and a desktop planner to keep you on track.

Here are a few ideas to help you create the perfect personalized set-up at home.

If you're a minimalist...

Streamlined, functional and multi-purpose items are important to your style aesthetic. Lean into your less-is-more philosophy with these picks.

At School

For those returning to the classroom, here are a few ways to stay safe, along with key items to help you navigate your school day safely and successfully.

Make your List – and check it twice:

  • Water bottle: We’re calling it BYOWB – bring your own water bottle. Luckily, there are plenty of designs to choose from to reflect your vibe and personality.
  • Lunch essentials: A cute and spacious reusable lunch bag lets you store your meal and stash your snacks. Be sure to pack your own reusable cutlery, too, for easy access and an eco-friendly, zero-waste lunch.
  • School supplies: Pencils, markers, highlighters and sticky notes will ensure you start off the school year in top form. Keep them together in a pencil pouch so you can reach for them with ease.
  • Mask: As masks become a part of the new normal, be sure to wear one and have one to spare – just in case! View a list of retailers carrying masks in-store and online and our PPE vending machine locations at Square One.
  • Hand Sanitizer: Stow away this hygiene essential in your pocket or backpack.
