Logitech M185 Wireless Mouse
Super affordable and straight to the point, the Logitech M185 gets the job done. It's a rather basic mouse for sure, but learners who are on a tight budget and are after the essentials (left and right clicks) should get a lot of use out of this one.

Coming in at less than $40, SanDisk's 512GB Ultra flash drive will be useful in holding a ton of your precious files and documents, without breaking the bank.

UGREEN 5-in-1 USB C Hub

You don't need to spend a ton for a good pair of wireless headphones, especially if you're just looking to listen in on some tunes in-between classes. The JBL Tune 500BT Headphones are a great choice thanks to a wallet-friendly price, long-lasting battery life, and more importantly, a decent-sounding setup.

After something a bit more discreet? Then the Soundcore P20i earbuds should suit you well, thanks to a very compact design that features water resistance, up to 30 hours playtime with the charging case, and decent-sounding bass.
