When I was a kid, I loved the stationery aisles at Kmart. All those pretty pens and paper clips and sticky notes lined up in perfect formation inspired me to write and create. Those aisles spoke to me in a way that toys or clothes never did. Give me a 128-page notebook over a Barbie any day.
I’m not sure exactly why stationery is my thing, but I think it probably has something to do with spending a lot of time at my parent’s business when I was younger. Mum was (and still is) in charge of the accounts which meant the office stationery cupboard was full of lots of cool stuff like pens, highlighters, staplers, typewriter ribbon and carbon paper. For Mum, stationery was purely utilitarian, but for me, office supplies helped me to express myself. They were full of possibilities and potential.
I still peruse KMart’s stationery aisles whenever I can. I’ve been really impressed by the quality of their products of late so I thought I’d share some of my favourite notebooks and diaries.
I love KMart way too much, and their stationery has been SO good lately. I bought one of the tiny gold and white diaries for my handbag for $3! So awesome
I actually got the gold dotty A5 diary and black and white stripe with gold accents A5 diary too. They are so cheap!!
