I always used to love September when I was at school.  Why?  Quite simply, new stationery! I love a browse round Paperchase.  I would much rather be bought a shiny new new notebook than a bunch of flowers.  So seeing as it is back to school time, I have dedicated this months five under £5 to my all time love of stationery.

 Five Under £5 Stationery

I am a fan of all things Caroline Gardner, especially these mini notebooks.  I have loads of them and find them so useful.  This set of three were from Amazon for £4.75.

I always have several lists on the go, and several different list style pads to write them on! This one was just £2 from Wilko

I also picked up the pencil case in Wilko for £2, although I’ve been using it in my handbag for tissues and emergency snacks for the kids.  The paper block is from Paperchase and was £5.  Really handy for all those notes I scribble down for the husband.

Another thing I have a lot of and use all the time is post it notes.  I use them a lot for work, and refuse to use boring ones.  This set was from Flying Tiger and cost just £2.
