I’ve always had a huge love for stationery so this time of year is one of my favourites because of the back-to-school sales.
Flipfiles? Yes please!
Pens? Ooooh definitely yes.
Basically I justify things to myself to get some stationery.
By the way, a tip. If you want the kids to take care of the stationery, announce that it is all yours! They need to ask to use it (always say yes!) and pack it away in its place afterwards (separate from their stuff).
I do this and all the nice stuff lasts forever because it’s “my” stuff. It’s not really but it just means nothing goes missing or has caps left off the markers 🙂
I wrote this post in 2014 and I’ve been using those same 5 highlighters for the last 2.5 years. I’ve just started a new box.
These are still my very favourite pens. Pick and Pay has the pink ones for R20, and blue and green ones for R17 each.
and I still love these pencils. I washi’d them to make them even more fun 😮 Recently I bought myself some of those WOPEX pencil crayons (colouring pencils) too and they are so lovely to the touch.
Fun fact – each kid needed 48 pencils for school. I bought a combination of Staedtler and Bic, purely because CNA ran out of the Staedtler pencils. Ha!
Now tell me, do you have a favourite post?
