Getting the Best Value Stationery
Stocking up on stationery is a must for teachers. As we mentioned earlier, buying multipacks where possible is going to save you time and money in the long run. You will need to resupply on some items throughout the year though, pencils do have a habit of getting lost.
To make sure your stationery lasts as long as possible throughout the school year, here are a few tips to make note of:
1. Don’t take your multipacks to school
Only take 2 pencils and pens at a time. If you take the whole pack, often students will ‘borrow’ pieces of stationery that they have forgotten and you’ll likely never see them again. Take a pen that you will use and a back up and leave the rest safely at home until they are needed.
2. Keep your lids on your pens
We know, it’s obvious! But keeping your lids on your pens will stop them from drying out and will last a lot longer.
3. Buy high quality stationery
Investing in your stationery is important as good stationery will last a lot longer than low quality cheaper options. Luckily, Ryman is the expert and will always provide quality stationery that you can rely on.
4. Organise your stationery
Well organised stationery is less likely to get damaged. Keeping everything safe in a pencil case rather than rolling around loose in your bag is going to prevent breakages and pen leaks. Make sure you don’t over pack your pencil case though or you may run the risk of damaging the zip.
5. Keep your notebooks well organised
We all love a clean page to start writing on, but if you’ve got a page that’s only half filled with writing, use the remaining half of the page. Not being wasteful and using all of the pages given to you in a notebook will certainly help them last longer.
