A back to school stationery wish list

Whether you’re about to start a new academic year, a new job, or you just want to update your stash, you’ll love the goodies I’ve found this week.

Paperchase, Ryman and WHSmith all have fantastic offers to help you with your stationery shop. Paperchase have 3 for 2 across 250 items (including my fave Stabilo Pen 68 and swing cool pastel highlighters), WH Smith have £5 off a £20 shop, plus 3 for 2 on notebooks (including Leuchtturm1917), and Ryman have better than half price on loads of supplies. All three also offer student discount (WH Smith do this at various points throughout the year but Paperchase and Ryman are all year round).

The backpack and pencil case

The bag and the pencil case are probably the two most important purchases, as there are few opportunities to express yourself at school when you have a strict uniform policy. This attitude has stuck with me as I’ve grown up and I always go for something quirky. Paperchase have a great selection, including bundle options to make your shopping experience that bit easier.
