Wilkinson’s (aka Wilko) without a doubt. It’s where I get a lot of stuff from. You could also try 99p Store or Poundland, the quality is often better than you’d expect. You could also look in Tesco. WH Smiths also sometimes has offers on Oxford notepads (my absolute favourites, but SO expensive) and other stationary.
If you want beautiful stationery for fairly low prices, you could also try Muji.
25p each for my favourite pencils ever isn’t bad either.
Stationery is something that gets talked about and fetishised a lot on studyblr in a way is sometimes not great (remember that super accurate post about nice stationery relating to classism?) but having the stuff you need to study well doesn’t have to be expensive.
I think it’s really fucked up how so many teenagers are alone and sad and having panic attacks in their room while their parents watch TV, and how a lot of those teenagers have had relatively normal childhoods, yet there’s this huge boom of depression and mental disorders, and its just dumb how we’ve turned into a generation labeled ‘reckless’ but really, we’re only reckless with ourselves
This is one of the best posts I’ve ever read

- Dad: Relationships are hard.
- Me: Try being in a long distance relationship. Try listening to her cry, but don’t hold her or kiss her, and text her to comfort her, because you’re literally 1,000 miles away and that’s all you can do. Try seeing her over Skype and only Skype, where sometimes the call drops and the quality isn’t great. Or how about planning a trip to go see her? But wait you can’t, because you’re having financial issues. Try explaining it to your friends, try telling them why they can’t meet her. Don’t even think of planning dates, because you’ll be the only one attending them. Try fighting with distance, that shit isn’t easy because you have distance on top of it. Try sleeping alone every night after hearing I love you and cuddling with a stuffed animal that doesn’t even do the trick because you know it isn’t her. That’s the really hard type of relationship.
- Dad: I think I’m going to cry.
- Me: Me too.
