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!
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
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.
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.
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 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.
