random, i know, but a little thing i happened to notice in whsmith today that they're selling a lot of stationary for half price at the minute, presumably a "back to school" kinda thing. it probably won't have crossed most people's minds yet, but for those of you who're starting uni, if your needing stationary, buy now - come september, when we're gonna need it, it won't be half price any more!
Thats very good advice and so on topic.
I have to say that the same applies for bags and shoes too! You need a bag for uni and at least 1 pair of shoes/trainers
lol, i found out last year how much stationary can cost you - not something i want to repeat! & i like having pretty folders & being all organised.....but thats probably just me! & only applies to uni work!
also, you totally don't realise the impact that having to wear your own clothes (ie. not uniform!) every day has on your wardrobe. it gets boring soooooo quickly, cos the only comfortable option (this has been discussed with other mates from uni) is jeans, a hoodie, & trainers. that is, unless your one of those "arts & social sciences" students who is only in uni about 3 hours a day & who's first lecture starts at 11 so have got plenty time to get up & make yourself look pretty, in which case feel free to dress up in all your favourite skirts & dresses & high heels. us scientists, we go for comfort, & when you have leave the house at obscene times of the morning to get to your 9am lecture, you really can't be bothered faffing around!
My thoughts exactly. I just thought I'd tell you which clothes shops are having a sale at the moment that I know of:
Next Summer Sale(ends saturday)
Marks and Spencers
Etam ( in Hamilton anyway)
and for shoes and bags:
JD Sports(clothes also)
Most sales end before the middle of August so I'd recommend going to any of these sales very soon, particularly if you want the Pink Panther top at £7.49 from NEXT! I'm looking for the grey one. If anyone sees it get the asst to keep it for you, say you worked in the factory and will be back for it 2moro- then tell me where it is(Glasgow/EK/Hamilton only please)!
