There is nothing I love more than new stationery. My daughters have inherited the same gene which is really lovely because its so fun when we have similar likes.
Yesterday we headed out to get back to school shoes and runners and to check out the stationery. They are at a school where all stationery is supplied so it's wonderful I don't have to hunt for obscure size lined books. We just get to do the fun things like buy a cute pencil case and some pretty pens. This year we are on a crazy strict budget so I was really dreading it.
BIG W is our place of choice for school shoes and lunch boxes. I bought the girls "No Name" school shoes there last year for $18 and they lasted all year and the girls liked them. This year we bought size 8 - eeek that is freaking me out I am a size 6.
But we saw some better ones on special from $30 to $10 so went with those instead. All popped on layby with their lunch boxes and stationery. I did have to get myself some nice new pretties though as I do have some projects on the go.
We flitted from Big W to KMart for stationery and for a grand total of $7.50 here are my goodies.
Highlighters 4 in a pack and pretty colours $2 Big W
Bic pens $2 Big W
Glitter Pencil Case $2 Big W ( for work )
Glitter Gel Pens 50c yes 50c for the whole packet from Kmart
Silver pencils $1
They are all sat ready for a year of crafting and planning.
