I’m a self confessed stationary junkie, and so when I find cute stationary I will buy it. I have my selected favourites, and I’m always using them. I use cute stationary all the time; when I’m revising, doing homework and just making notes – I have enough to sink a ship and figured I would share with you guys some of my favourite bits.
I love ring-binder folders, and I use them for everything; they’re so useful for storing my revision notes in for GCSEs and considering I’m in year 10, I assume I’m going to start to build up quite the collection! Wilko do such amazing, but cheap stationary and their folders are no exception. This one is so pretty, and I am in love with the gold foil writing ‘Hello Lovely’ – plus, it was only £1.25! I’m going to use this for English at the moment, and I’m going to gather myself a collection of pretty folders for each subject, it just helps to make revising that little bit easier!
Revision cards are so useful, however sometimes I find them to be a little small or flimsy feeling, so I like to use these Silvine record cards, which are only £1.00 for 100! They’re great for writing quotes on to learn, and then I like to stick them onto my wall so I can see them every day and they’ll ingrain in my memory. I like that they’re a clean white ruled card, and they’re not super flimsy either.
I’m a total highlighter junkie, and Stabilo Boss make the best highlighters. I love the skinny flash ones, because they’re so easy to fit inside pencil cases, and they’re easier to hold than the fatter chunky ones. Only, they run out quicker and don’t have as many colour options. The chunky ones come in huge packs of eight with really interesting colours, and I love them because they’re so vibrant.
On the topic of pens, I love fineliners. Staedtler do some great ones, and I really like to use these fineliners. They’re great for mindmaps, or writing notes in my planner.
Finally, possibly the most used out of all my favourites, my planner. Because all my homework for school is online, I love to keep track of it all in a planner like this cute one from paperchase, and then highlight it when I’m done. It helps me to keep track of everything I’m doing day to day, and I can stay more organised.
So, I hope you all liked these favourites. I’m planning on doing a whole huge post on revision and how I revise, although I know it’s not very apt considering GCSEs have started (how did they go, by the way, for those of you who’ve been doing them recently?) but better late than never right! Anyway, I have my Year 10 exams soon, so I’m trying my hardest to start revision for those and get decent grades, which is unlikely but we can pray!
