20 signs you are addicted to stationery

I have always had a massive passion for owning and admiring tons of different stationery. Literally I’m so obsessed with what stationary I own and I have so much of it. My favourite kind of sale is the back to school sales! where there is so much option of what you can buy!

For the love of all things Stationery…

I admit to owning a crazy massive selection of stationary but still always finding an excuse and reason to buy more. Especially notebooks. I store most things on my craft cart but I still end up spreading out to numerous boxes and drawers. Planners, Pens, notebooks, pads, There’s so much to need!

So here are my 20 signs that you are also addicted to stationary…

❥ Already owning enough stationary to keep you going for 10 years. It is still unavoidable to not buy something new every time you get to the stationary aisle.

❥ Randomly scrolling through Instagram, seeing some beautiful stationery, to then need to spend hours searching for the same so you can buy it.

❥ Yet again, Having brought a new pretty pen and you can’t use it because it doesn’t write very well, but you can not face throwing it away.

❥ Your ability to organise your stationery into 100s of different types. (Best, pretty, colour, size. etc.)

❥ When you are starting a new project so need to go out and buy new stationery. It’s not like you already own enough.

❥ You feel fury when the pen you’ve been using has seeped into the next page of your beautiful notebook.

❥ The collection of unused notebooks is already taking over your room but you just can’t help but buy lovely notebooks. They are all so pretty and maybe one day you will find a use for them all.

❥ When It comes to buying stationery gifts for others that you then like, you need to buy 2 sets because you have to own it too.


❥ You finally need to start a new notebook for your latest project, but before you can start you need to decide which notebook to use, which one’s gonna be perfect for this project. It takes ages to decide because you have way too much to pick from.

❥ Justifying buying a new notebook that is so pretty that you will never want to write in it. Which is fine, yep!

❥ All your friends and family tell you that you already have enough stationery, and you just can’t believe them.

❥ The house is actually already filled with the stationery that you own and yet your needing to make more room for the new things that you keep buying.

❥ And It is pretty accurate to say that you own more pencil cases then you do handbags. That’s OK though right?

❥ A feel a rush of excitement when you walk into your favourite shop s to buy stationary and they have a new range in.

❥ You constantly taking photos of your stationery looking rather admirable.

❥The idea of having a clear-out of stationery is mission impossible and most likely ends in tears.

❥ It is not actually your fault that conversations about stationary happen way too much when you are around. This just happens.

❥ More than half of your hobbies revolve around owning more and more stationary and reasons why you need to buy more. An excuse is an excuse, right?

❥ Understandably there is a separate place for boring plain stationery and it’s separate to all of the pretty stuff.

❥ Holidays and days out usually result in buying a fancy new pen in the gift shop saying where you’ve been.

    In this modern age of everything being digital it might not be a bad thing to be addicted to stationery. The personal hand-written note seems to be a thing of the past so I am all for this addiction. I still write notes for meetings in a marble notebook and then transcribe them into my PC.

    Girl, I love stationaries. Only because it is my dream job to work in an office. I can not count how many stationaries I have.

    You are not alone! I am also a stationery junky… maybe it is because I am a graphic designer. But really I have a few boxes of everything. From letterheads to envelopes I have it in case I need to send out an important letter. And all the different kinds of paper.

    I love this! I’m definitely guilty of buying too much stationery. Browsing stationery stores is one of my hobbies!

    I can definitely relate to having notebooks too pretty to use and keeping useless sentimental pens even if they’re out of ink lol. I’m definitely a stationery fanatic

    I too am still attracted to stationary and love to buy anything that looks creative. My wife is a bigger addict probably being a teacher and loves to gift to children in her class who perform well.

    I fear that I may indeed be addicted to stationary! I absolutely love notebooks and great pens (the smooth writing kind) and have probably spent a small fortune on this stuff. I regret nothing! lol

    I haven’t tried out ‘fancy’ stationary for everyday notebooks but your post has inspired me to do so. I typically keep notes in spiral bound notebooks however I wonder if I’d be inspired with new ideas and perspective if I chose something fancier?

    I don’t need to read this – I KNOW I’m already obsessed with stationery! I got to a point that I had to stop going in certain shops…. how many diaries, post it notes and highlighters does one person need? OK, just one more 😉
