Stationery Haul

With me starting my first year of university very soon, I happily embraced the opportunity to get myself some cute and practical stationery, and expand my existing stash of cute and practical stationery. I thought I'd talk you through what I've been buying recently, and the rest of my stash will likely make an appearance in the flat tour post I'll be doing in a few weeks.

Auchan Supermarkets, France:

From his holiday in France, my boyfriend brought me back a big lot of stationery. At the top of the photo are two Histoires De Filles ring binder folders, and the purchase of the one on the right was based very much on my name being Paris. Below that, the Union Flag-patterned academic year diary, which reads "I can't keep calm I have to study" has plenty of space to fill in important dates (it's a good job I know my basic French though!) I also received pencils, rubbers, highlighters and different coloured pens - which will all be great for highlighting revision notes and making revision posters!

W H Smith & Tiger:

From W H Smith's stationery clearance a few weeks ago, I bought a weekly planner, which conveniently has 52 pages to it. I intend to pin it to the noticeboard in my flat so I can easily keep track of my plans for each week. Speaking of 'pinning', I also cheaply picked up the adorable ladybird push pins pictured above.
Tiger is quickly becoming a favourite store of mine. Although not available in every British city, it's a great shop to take a trip to if you're ever near one as it sells all sorts, from homeware to stationery to novelty items. From my local Tiger in Leicester, I bought a memo block and from the Tiger on Tottenham Court Road, London, I picked up this green desk hippo - to hold my important memos in his mouth and to add a little more colour and personality to my desk.


Sainsbury's have recently offered some great bargains, with lots of stationery and homeware 'reduced to clear', something I have fully exploited. I bought some jumbo sticky notes; which I always find useful for revision and for general reminders, page markers; brilliant for keeping track of all the important parts in a text book or my notebooks, and several packs of uni-ball pens; which were reduced from £4 per pack to £1.30 per pack.


I didn't buy a huge amount of notebooks as I already have so many, and I generally tend to use refill pads in a ring binder folder, but these were what I did pick up new. I particularly love the Woodland Trust notebook on the right as it sports a very sweet hedgehog print and the money made from its sale goes towards the conservation of UK woods and trees. The other notebooks were bought from the clearance section of Sainsbury's.

So that's my new stationery for the year all sorted. What stationery have you been buying recently? I'd love to see links to any haul posts below!
