As summer comes to an end, we all get excited to go back to school for various reasons which may include: seeing your friends every day, getting back into a routine, learning new things, and most importantly getting new school supplies! Buying a fresh binder with no scratches on it or a new set of color pencils is nice, but it is not completely necessary. Therefore, try to reuse your old school supplies. Maybe tape up the area of your binder where it is falling apart or sharpen your color pencils so they’re as good as new. You don’t need brand new supplies each school year or semester. Reusing notebooks, folders, pens, etc. will cut down on the amount of resources it took to produce these items as well as save money on school supplies you want, but don’t really need.
