TK Maxx Stationery Haul

I thought I'd do something a bit different today and post about my recent mini stationery haul from TK Maxx. I was actually only in there in order to peruse the beauty section but nothing was really catching my eye so I took a little wander around the rest of the store. I knew there had been notebooks in stock before but now the section has really grown to incorporate lots of books, crafts and even calendars.

I was actually in my element while browsing the shelves. Probably only my mum knows about my love for calendars as I ask for one every Christmas (Hey Mum - I still want one for Christmas ok, the one in this post is just for photographing purposes), but since I've started blogging I've discovered a new use for them...photograph backrounds! Floral/pretty calendars make great photo backgrounds for products so I picked up one by Caroline Gardner (no idea either!), which is full of pretty flowers and quotes. This one is perfect because it's light, bright and colourful but with enough room for placing products on.

I had a bit of a meltdown over the notebooks. There were so many pretty ones that I had to force myself to put some back otherwise I would have been in for a shock at the till. To be honest, I don't actually need anymore notebooks (who ever does?) but the two I chose were too pretty to pass up. The minty green one actually has a little note section and then peel off sticky notes on the other side - a stationery nerd's dream and not only do these work as notebooks but they're also good for blog photos as well - you can pop products on them to add a bit of height or just use them as something pretty in the background.

Really this shopping trip had two purposes, not just to fulfil my stationery desires but the items also double as blog photo backgrounds so I'd say all in all this was a pretty successful haul. What do you think?

  3. Buying stationary I don't need is a bad habit of mine, TK Maxx is a place I've never really thought to go to, but after seeing your adorable picks I think I'm off there right now!

  6. Oh you managed to find some beautiful things Cherry. I never seem to have much luck in TKMaxx at all, I find that it is a place that you have to keep going into on a very regular basis.
