Stationary Haul


Going back to school is the worst but buying stationary makes it slightly better. I’m going to show you all of the things that I’ve bought so maybe you can use them as ideas of your own. If you want to links to what I bought it’s at the bottom of the post.

1.School Bag

Obviously you need a school bag. I bought mine when I was on holiday in Bulgaria the brand is Pentathlon but they don’t seem to have a website.

I have one file for each subject and they’re coloured coded with my textbooks (check out my file organisation post here). I bought all of mine from Wilkos for £1 each. I customised mine with washi tape so that they would all be different. This was a lot cheaper than buying coloured files.

3.Pencil Case

I bought this one because it is really big and it is part of Jim Chapman’s merchandise.

You can either have one book for each subject or you can rip out paper and put them into your file. Personally, I prefer one book for each subject because it means that my work is less likely to get lost.

OF COURSE! I like to have six because it means I have more scope to colour code things and who doesn’t want that?!



They help you organise your work as well. I explained more about them in my other post (click here).

6.Mini Whole-Punch

This is super useful, especially if you have teachers who constantly forget to whole punch the work. This one is very small and it can live in your file if it really needs to. However, they are only in green.

7.Mini Stapler

I like to staple worksheets that go together so that they don’t get lost. Also, I have a rule that if I stable 2 or more bits of paper together then I don’t need to use a plastic wallet because the amount of paper will prevent the paper from ripping.

I’ve chosen black as it’s the colour we have to use in the exam.

These are useful for drawing diagrams or just writing things in rough.

10.Rubber and Pencil Sharpener

To go with the pencils. Make sure you get a pencil sharpener with an end so that you don’t have to go to the bin to sharpen your pencil.

11.Glue Sticks

These are just useful to have!

12.Plastic Wallets


They mean that your work won’t get wet if it’s raining and they prevent individual pieces of paper from ripping out of your file.

13.File Dividers


These help to separate your work, which makes life so much easier.

Make sure you have this in case you make a mistake as it makes it much neater.

15.Plastic Folders

I don’t know what these are actually called but they’re basically plastic wallets but stronger (like a folder), which you can leave at the front of your file to store important work.

16.Revision Books


As I mentioned in an earlier post, I like to rewrite my notes and these are the sort of books I would use.
