It’s all so familiar – it’s the last day of school before the summer break, the last class is over, the weather is gorgeous, the summer holiday is within reach and everyone is (well, almost) packed up and good to go. Then before you know it, it’s time to fly home and shove on an extra-large washing from all the holiday cheer. Where did the time go?
So if you’re due back to school soon to resume your teaching duties, fear not – we’re here to make life a little easier. Here at Busy B HQ, we’ve gone through our latest collections and handpicked some top products to help you get organised for the new academic year. Rejoice!
To kick off the academic year right, you need something that’s going to help you plan work and home life all in the one place. In steps the Busy B 17 Month Busy Life Planner! Our new cloud blue planner runs from August 2019 to December 2020, meaning you can stay organised for longer.
– Week to view with space for goal planning
– Daily schedule pages for work and home
– Handy tear off lists for each week
– Space for planning ‘Our Week’ – great for keeping tabs on departmental activity
– A section for meal planning – keep the daily routine of lunch interesting
– Expenses pages – keep an eye on spend easily
– Space for simple note taking – for those meetings where you need your diary and notebook in one!
– Gorgeous pastel and foil illustrations and colours throughout
– Shimmering stickers to note important days or events (just for fun)
We love a notebook that makes an impression – and our gorgeous Busy Life A5 Notebook in Paper Leaf does not disappoint. It’s actually the perfect companion to the 17 Month Planner – this lined notebook has space for lots of notetaking, stickers, tear out pages and a section for undated monthly planning. A great companion to help you jot down anything you need during busy school days!
The pen – a teacher’s secret weapon! As we all know how many we go through in life (where do they go, though?) it’s always nice to have something new for everyday writing. Introducing your new favourite pen, the Busy B Stripy Pen & Gold Case.
Sold together to save handbag rummaging, this pen and case duo adds a little luxe to marking and notetaking. The ballpoint pen comes in black ink, with a twist open nib and gold detailing.
It’s nice keeping everything neat in the one place, especially when life in the classroom can get a bit hectic. We’ve got a range of great pouches for keeping everything organised, but our favourite has to be our large pouch in powder blue!
This pouch is a great size for storing notebooks, your phone or tablet, along with pens and pencils –an uber stylish desk accessory that does not break the bank. The faux leather pouch has a main zipped section for bigger bits and pieces like a tablet, and a smaller zipped section on the front for smaller notebooks and other stationery. It’s also great for taking along to any departmental meetings or teacher’s nights – everything you need in the one place!
For your time spent not in school, let’s talk about the important stuff – your next holiday! We have some gorgeous travel wallets for savvy travellers, but we think the Navy Travel Wallet is our favourite for a little gift from you, to you.
This faux leather wallet has a delightful spotty pattern with foil detailing, and plenty space for more than one passport and boarding cards. It also features a zipped section on the inside for any currency or extra bits you need to carry.
