Every year around the end of August, we find ourselves drifting toward the school supplies aisle
. Even though we've been out of the classroom for (ahem

So, if you're also feeling that same urge to buy a fresh pack of pencils right about now, take heart — we may have outgrown Trapper Keepers, but we can still spruce up our desks and hopefully capture some of that new-year-ahead energy. That's why we rounded up a slew of notepads, planners, pens, and office essentials
that are way
