Some of you might be the type to get through school with a single pen and a broken ruler, and others may have pencil cases full to the brim (me). But what are your top 5 things you recommend to stock up on for the new year of school?

Mine would have to be (left to right)...

  1. Muji gel ink pens: These pens are absolute beauties and have such a smooth writing flow, I could stare at them all day
  2. Zebra Mildliners: Highlighters but even better. They come in tons of pastel type colours that don't have the brightness of a thousand suns when you try to read the page. They also have a really useful double end, one with a thin point and one with a traditional highlighter shape
  3. Squared paper notebook: I'm a massive fan of bullet journals (check them out here and on Instagram and Tumblr) and love to use my Muji pens to make my own bullet journals. There's something so satisfying about using squared paper too...
  4. Pocket exercise books: I went through a ton of these in my revision, just writing down the answers to flashcard questions and using them to test myself on dates for History. The best time to get these if you want something pretty is in the sale in Paperchase, or in Wilkos or Sainsburys
  5. Flashcards: I used coloured flashcards so so much last year (when I counted them at the end I had hundreds), they look great hole punched and put in the front of a file to keep them with your notes

My wife got me this bad boy:

I love it! I always used to write in pen and made loads of mistakes all the time/my writing was illegible so my notes were a mess. But this is so nice to write with and the eraser is really good.

This little bad boy has been a life saver. Highly recommend this for attaching reminders when reading through dictionary/notes/books.

Sometimes I just go into Muji and stare at the stationery hoping they'll jump into my pockets :lol: I managed to bag a lot of desk organising stuff which I adore :love:

But my top stationery would be:
Bic Cristal Grip...
Spoiler:

I've been using them for as long as I can remember and still use them now. They last a pretty long time, and are fairly smooth and of course cheap

Can't beat a good quality pencil case, mine is a simple Paperchase one, but is pretty roomy and doesn't take up too much space

The Muji 180 degree ruler, much better quality than the other ones on the market tbh, mine has lasted a good two years (and counting) of solid use!
Spoiler:

Can't beat the Rymans bumper refill pad too, I always get about 6 or 7 in August
Spoiler:

And to go with the paper I always buy folders. So each subject has its own folder, with its own notes/work etc I always get a different colour per subject too!

These are the best, I used them in A-levels to write some hard/long words I need to memorise in biology and wrote all the chemical reaction in A-level chemistry, also those difficult math equations for integration or differentiation. I've actually either put them on the window or on my desk so they're always infront of me haha!

I take my pencil case, lines post it notes and A4 notepad with dividers to uni.

Pencil case:
4 black pens.
4 pencils.
I have stabilo fine liners and stabilo fibre. (10 pack each)
Staedtler ball point 10 pack pens.
Folding ruler.
Rubber.
Sharper.

A4 notepad with dividers.
I usually print out my lecture slides (6 per page, double sided) so it's not too bad. Then I make notes in notepad. I usually write what slide number it and what lecture number it is so I don't get confused. I honestly don't think folders are necessary for my course, it's just extra weight for me to carry considering I commute.

At home I have a lot of stationery, I have Staedtler fine liners and fibre (10 and 20 pack). I have a lot of lined post it notes.

Last year in staples, they had paper mate 10 pens pack in black ink and another one with red/green in it too. I brought like 20 packets for 50p each. So I still have 8 pens left over = 80 pens. For 50p each, can't complain considering it's 50p each.

The image I attached I brought for 90p each in Sainsburys.Name:  image.jpeg
