Pens. Pens pens pens.


I snagged a cute pencil holder so that my purse is slightly cleaner.

I bought a small pile of store-brand composition and spiral notebooks from Staples for 50¢ each, which was fun. If you take care to get the ones from Brazil, they're nicely fountain-pen friendly, too.

A thing I went looking for but can't find any more are those fantastic, cheap, canvas-covered blue 3-ring binders that I used to get every year up through 7th or 8th grade. I miss them terribly, and *nobody* sells them any more. Which is confusing to me -- they were the *cheap* option when I was a kid. I'm a little jealous that you had a Trapper Keeper. :)


Unique binder clips and paper clips--brightly colored, oddly shaped, etc.

The little tiny binders with lined sheets at Staples. The pretty colored page flags from 3M. Hot Topic has some Lisa Frank stationary stuff for back to school, I might indulge. I DO have a Pusheen flying unicorn cat notebook I use at work though. :)


I take advantage of this time to get the big package of glue sticks on sale. They usually last until the following September. Also, love me some gelly pens!
