1. You have so many notebooks you can barely keep up.

Too many thoughts=Too many notebooks

2. Still, you can convince yourself that you need a new notebook at any given moment.

I absolutely love my new notebooks!!!! #stationery #cute #fun @HappyJacksonUK

Because no matter how many you own, you never seem to have enough.

3. Choosing a pen is a very important decision.

@geoffwake1 I do love coloured pens though. Nothing to do with ofsted. Just a stationery freak.

Each one alters your handwriting just a little.

4. So you like to keep an array of pens for every occasion.

You never know when a calligraphy pen may come in handy, after all.

5. You somehow manage to buy several planners a year.

I got a new planner and it's just so *sniffles* beautiful(,:

Once you've abandoned it for a month or so, the shame drives you to start again with a new one.

6. You have a preference over narrow or wide-ruled paper.

Ludwig why'd you give me wide ruled paper?!? Get it together dude

7. And it really bothers you when you get the wrong one.

when you ask someone for paper but they give you wide ruled

It's a struggle few people understand.

8. The only thing that makes going back to school worth it is the fact you have a legitimate excuse to buy new school supplies.

9. A freshly sharpened pencil is incredibly satisfying to you.

12. And you would NEVER let anyone borrow your favourite pen.

Other people just won't take care of it like you do.

13. Because losing your favourite pen is the most devastating thing in the world.

14. Messing up the first page of a new notebook or accidentally bending a page is frustrating as hell.

16. You remember your elation when you first used a fountain pen and the glory of buying different coloured inks for them.

Who uses yellow highlighters anymore when you have so many different options now? 😋🙉😍😁😳

20. Paperchase and Muji are two of your favourite shops.

22. And watching calligraphy is your very own form of meditation.

23. You've debated whether it's OK to spend more money on a piece of stationery than a piece of clothing.

Sure a jumper will keep you warm, but a new diary will keep you happy.

24. But the answer is always the same – of course it is. Because there's nothing quite like the feeling of productivity that buying new stationery brings.

Does anyone else agree that nice stationery is the key to productivity?!
