I do realize there are many worse things in this world to be addicted to than stationery, and for that I am grateful! But today, as I order ANOTHER new folder (probably taking my total up to around 4,732) it finally dawns on me how much I am obsessed with notebooks, pens, diaries and highlighters.
Here are some of the items in my office that, quite frankly, I can't live without...

First and foremost is THE NOTEBOOK! I have dozens of notebooks in my house and office. My favourites are probably the A4 Pukka Pad project books but I don't discriminate, any spiral bound notebook will get my attention. Especially ones with subject dividers. Or pretty covers.
Every new idea I have for my business is promptly got underway with a new notebook. I recommend having a place to jot down ideas right by the bed too for inspirations that come in the night, it really helps with a good night's sleep!
Next up: THE PEN!
My latest must-haves are these Frixion rollerballs. They come is so many pretty colours (very, very important), they look cool and best of all they're erasable! These are the best option for me when filling out my calendar and wall planner because I can colour code stuff which helps keep me be more organized plus if I change my mind about something I can just rub it out and it doesn't mess up the whole page.
The other thing I am a tiny bit obsessed with is ring binders and box files. I love to have all my bits of paper tucked away in pretty folders and I'm such a sucker for good design.
I can't be the only one with this kind of addiction though I'm sure! Do let me know if you suffer with the same obsession!
