    So do I I think one of the things I'm going to enjoy most about going to uni is buying ALL THE NEW STATIONERY!

    I finished mine off last week in the French supermarkets, where they have the range of a WHSmith (maybe not quite Ryman) at the price of a Tesco.
    :excited: It's not just me who has a thing about French supermarkets! I went to France last year, and my mum and I (who are both massive stationery geeks) spent about an hour in the stationery section.

    The way to my heart is though good pencils and funky rulers. Also rainbow glue.

    French supermarkets?

    Did they have the super sales before school? My teacher told us about those
    Oh yes! Because there's no school uniform all of the sales for la rentrée are stationery-based.

    Going to the supermarket is one of the best parts of a holiday. It's the quirks, like the smell (ahh!) and putting the cooked sausage for dogs in with the cooked meats for humans (not so nice).

    We're planning next year's family holiday now and by the sound of it it'll be German supermarkets for me to get my fix in. Not quite so good, especially seeing as somewhere like Aldi is considered a fairly upmarket supermarket there. (But they have potato salad, and Milka bars at 90 cents each, and the reverse vending machines, I want to go back to Germany NOW!)

    Rainbow glue is the best. Also glitter.

    The French ones can be a bit variable, but not as bad as the Germans. If you're that wealthy as a country you don't need the cheapest and nastiest supermarket that's still legal. (Thankfully some of them are half decent though.)

    That's a sixth more than me! What language are you doing alongside it?

    Well, the Germans don't have the most patient of cultures so we found that sometimes it was easier to go straight for English (which they all seemed to speak very well).

    That's coming from someone who does French A2 and no qualifications in Spanish!
