Fill your children's backpacks with cool and colourful stationery this school year.
Stationery can make or break a kids' status in school. Fact. Well, at least in a child's eye. We think it's fair to say that kids love trendy stationery. They can boast about it to their friends in school and can make them oh-so jealous, so it's important for you to find the right back-to-school stationery to put a smile on their faces. (You'll be uber cool mum, if you do).
If you're on a tight budget and can't afford a designer satchel, that's OK. There are loads of deals out there that offer impressive value for money and will catch the eye of their friends, in a good way.

Stationery buying guide
Follow these three simple steps to find stationery your kids will love:
- Choose colourful items. Kids are attracted to bright colours, so choose stationery that features cartoon characters or their favourite colour. It might even encourage kids to open their notebooks to do their homework.
- Get quality items. Purchase products that will last at least a year. This will ensure your child's schooling won't be interrupted by broken spiral notebooks or misaligned binders.
- Find a reputable shop. There are countless retailers that sell stationery, so look for one that provides a combination of affordability, style and quality. The amount you need to shell out for pencils, pencil cases, notebooks and staplers will add up, so you want items that will withstand everyday use.
