    I'm so freaking obsessed with stationary. I like buying stationary more than clothes or shoes or handbags or perhaps anything other than bedding and towels and houseware :o:
    Sadly I cannot rationalise buying more stationary for A2 year
    Looking forward to Uni shopping though

    JW what the best method for organising language vocab is? Personally I used a folder for GCSE but I have been tolod this isnt the best method.
    For Spanish AS I used a folder for my general work and notes and a tiny A6 notebook to write any new vocab in, which worked quite well

    do people actually use their diaries / school planners any more. I found it quite useful at GCSE because I had loads of subjects, and carried on at start of y12 using it, but by Christmas I didn't even take it to school any more. So do you guys use it in sixth form?

    I hope to pass my driving test by about January and when I do, I'll be taking four folders to college every day. I would just leave the one's i don't need straight away in the car. I think starting off, I'll have to use one lever arch folder.

    I'm getting mine from WH Smith, I think.

    I'm getting these:

    I started out by using a lever arch file like everyone else, but I really didn't want to carry it round all day, it was a pain.
    I ended up using display files. (Google it if you don't know the ones I mean.)
    They're so much easier to carry round as they're thin and lighter.
    Plus if you buy them you save on having to buy lots of poly pockets and having to make sure you hole punch everything.
    I just have a few different coloured ones, one for each subject. I'd go to cheaper stationary shops for these, some others like WHSmith are a bit of a rip off I've found.
    Just make sure you get the ones with lots of pages and you're sorted!
    Then with other stationary, you can get like a pack of 20 black biros for 99p in WHSmith, that'll get you through the year. A pencil, ruler, rubber, sharpener etc etc. Then a pack of highlighters and some other coloured pens and pencils.
    Also the biggest A4 pad of lined paper the shop does.
    A notebook and diary of some sort may be good aswell if you like to be organised

    Has anyone recommended a pencil case. Stationery is great WITH a pencil case.

    Is a spare can of red bull necessary or is it suddenly easier to stay awake in college?

    Paperchase have loads of pretty ones.

    In fact paperchase = the god of stationary shops. I buy all mine from there often color/design co-ordinated.

    I too love stationary shopping, tis' the highlight of my year :p:
