Whenever I see Back 2 School stationary I get so excited even as a 19 year old. The best thing about going back to school for me was going shopping with my mum to buy everything I needed and more! However, towards the end of the year I’d be left with a pencil, a pen given to me by a friend from the “I forgot my pen” day all shoved in my blazer pocket.
So I have finished my first year of University and there was no reason for me to buy any stationary as everything was done on computers. Now that I have decided to take a different path and go back to college again (long story) I feel that I have an excuse to spend my money on stationary.
I went to Wilkinson’s which is one of my favourite stores. I love to look round the shop, dream about the items I’d buy if I had my own home and eye up the Pick ‘n’ Mix stand. It is also my favourite shop to pick up cute but cheap stationary.
Yes… you caught me! I really did buy pencils with the times tables put on there, they will be helpful by refreshing my memory. I haven’t done maths in a while so I can check my answers as I like to remember them off by heart rather than working them out. I love the note book saying ‘Do What You Love’ it’s really fitting for my situation at the moment due to my life changes, the size is going to be perfect to fit in my bag. I bought the ‘I really should’ to do list as I’m always creating lists so why not get a one with flowers on? The Thoughts, Ideas, Plans and Dreams notebook is so cute I had to get it. I can jot down notes for future blog posts and all different types of ideas as I am very organised and love planning. As for the other note book with the diamonds, I thought I’d take this to work with me because I’ll always need to jot down notes and again create endless lists. I love the flimsy notebooks from Wilko’s they always do these but in all different colours and patterns, I’ve had them before and the different styles are again so cute! And of course I bought two packets of pens because why not!
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, do you have the same love for buying stationary as I do? I could have said ‘cute’ many more times but I had to stop myself.
