I am an avid list writer. I literally write down every single thing I need to do at the beginning of each day and I love being really organised. Being a list writing obsessive means I love getting pretty new stationary to write all my to-do lists and blog post ideas in. I recently spotted some really cute notebooks in Wilkinson, with a pretty 50s style lady on them and I just couldn’t resist picking them up. Everything was so affordable that it quickly turned into a little haul!
The range I chose from features lots of pretty flowers and colours and some of the items have pretty sewing machines on them as well as ribbon which looks like tape measures. I would have bought absolutely everything and very nearly did, but then remembered a little thing called budgeting and just got the bits I needed! (This doesn’t mean I won’t go back for the rest next week!)
First up I got 3 notebooks. Two were just exercise book style lined notebooks, which I’ll use for lists and notes as well as for keeping track of recipes that I’m working on. The other is a thick paperback notebook with decorated pages inside.
The big notebook cost £3.00 and the exercise books were £1.00 each.
I love the idea of using the little sections to jot down ideas.
Next I got a weekly planner for £2.50. I use these to plan my blog posts and make sure I’m keeping track of all my blog admin. They also work really well as meal planners or for writing down children’s activities. I also got these cute drawing pins which look like buttons for £1.75.
I’m forever losing pens, so I grabbed these pretty pink ballpoint pens for 10p each as well as three mini notebooks, also 10p each to keep in my handbag.
Lastly I got a small notice board for my office, which I’m going to jazz up a little bit in a future blog post. The notice board cost £2.00.
I’m so happy with my little haul, which is making me feel inspired to get back on track with my blogging as I’ve fallen seriously behind in the last few weeks!
