Stationery Hoarding

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted on here in ages. For those of you who don't know I am moving away to university this Autumn and in order to do that I need to get the best grades which... is easier said than done... So basically at the moment I don't have much of a life, but! Never fear Snail Mail is still very much on my mind and I have been thinking about what to post now for a very long time and here it is!

The other day I was clearing out my stuff making a hopeless attempt at reducing the amount of things I have to leave my parents while I'm away at Uni and I found out I have a serious problem... I found boxes of unopened stationery I ordered from JanetStore months and months ago, folders of stationery I have made or printed off the internet when I first started and bundles of kawaii knick-knacks that I quite frankly have no idea where they came from. 

I have no idea what to do with all this stuff! In a way I want to sell some of it, I know that I will never use it all and I could really do with the extra money, however, I also feel like nooo I cant get rid of this stuff it's all so cute and maybe I will use it eventually.

So all in all this is a pretty pointless post but I thought you might like to see some pictures of my collection (and possibly what could be up for sale to you soon ;D)

Let me know if you would be interested in me selling any stationery in the comments below! Hopefully that will help me make my mind up a little bit ;D After all, if I miss it all, I'm sure I will buy tonnes more to replace it.

Have a lovely week!
