While Boston basically doubled in population this weekend—a feat that excites the 18-22 bunch and irritates the rest—there is some good news to satisfy everyone's need for office supplies. Poppin, maker of colorful productivity goods ranging from pencils to file cabinets, is venturing around the area with its first ever mobile pop-up shop. Today through Sunday, the truck can be spotted at 13 campuses (two to three schools per day) and is filled with back-to-school necessities in its signature 10-color palette. Shop on the truck or place an online order—either purchase method will yield a free gift, which is greatly appreciated after endless Target runs and blowing your budget on a U-Haul.
