A University Stationery Haul

Hello friends and welcome back to another blog post. This post is a very exciting one as I am finally sharing my university stationery haul. I will be studying Politics and Sociology at Brunel University London and so over the last few months, I have been getting together all of the stationery I need.

Yes, I fully realise I may have gone slightly overboard with the amount of stationery I have. However, I am very much a stationery enthusiast so all of the things featured in this haul will be loved and treasured by me. You definitely do not need this much stationery (as far as I know) but I thought I would share everything nonetheless.

A quick disclaimer before we get started, there are a few things in this haul that have been gifted to me. This is not for the purpose of being featured in this haul. These are items that I have had for quite a while which I think will be useful for me at university.

With all of that information out of the way, let’s get started!

Filing Items

The top left, top middle and bottom left lever arch files are from Wilko, the top right and bottom right are from Tesco and the middle bottom is from Paperchase. 
The Expanding Organiser is from WHSmiths. 
The Subject Dividers and Poly Pockets are from Wilko.

I am a very organised person and so of course, I got lots of filing resources to help me with that. I got 6 lever arch files, one for each module, and some subject dividers. I got 3 subject dividers for now but they were very inexpensive so I know I can get more if need be. As for polypockets, those are for those sheet of paper that you don’t want to hole punch. There’s a lot in the packet I bought but again, they were very inexpensive so I can always buy more.

I also got an expanding organiser which I plan to use for important documents such as my passport, registration documents etc.

Pads and Post Its

All of these pads came inside a few of the Uniboxes I was very kindly gifted. Yes I know the top left one is not a weekly planner or a to do list. I’m sorry.

The Post-it notes are from WHSmiths. 

Over the last 8 months, I have been very lucky to be a brand ambassador for The Unibox. Because of that, I have collected quite a few pads of different purposes. There’s a weekly planner there, some to-do lists and a happiness pad. I know the latter has no correlation but I think it’s important to include in terms of well-being. I may not end up using them but they’re good to have if need be.

As for the post-it notes, I decided to get some because you can never have enough post-it notes. I plan on using these as to-do lists out and about and jotting down extra information.

Writing Material

 The muji notebooks came from… Muji and the Oxford Campus refill pads came from WHSmiths.

 These Paper Mate InkJoy pens came from Wilko.

At this moment in time, I do plan on taking my lecture notes on my laptop as I am quite fast at typing. However, I do think there will be instances where I take handwritten notes which is why I got some notepads. The oxford ones are my absolute favourite so of course I had to get them. I also have some muji notebooks because I like Muji notebooks and I think they could come in useful.

Pencil Cases

 Both of these pencil cases are from Wilko.

I decided to get two pencil cases for university. I’m not sure the rules of pencil cases in exams at university which is why I got a clear one as well just in case.

 The Tipp-Ex, Stapler, staples, labels, and the 2 in 1 sharpener and rubber are from WHsmiths and the sticky tack and calculator are from Wilko. 

The final few things are in the miscellaneous category. I got some binder clip and paper clips for paper. I know both of them will come in use when I’m at university. I also got some pins for my notice board that’s in my accommodation.

I also got this gorgeous paper tray from Wilko which I know will be of great storage use. I’m really excited to have this out on my desk.

I got some labels for my folders and other things I’m going to label. I also got some sticky related items because they are definitely of use. I got some tipp-ex for when I make mistakes, staplers and staples, a sharpener and rubber in one and a calculator. I may not need a calculator but I’d rather have it than think “Oh shoot.”

Anyway, that’s everything in my stationery haul! Thank you for reading.

Love Beth
