My Favorite Place to Go Back to School Shopping

As a mom, the list of things that gets you excited seem to grow longer and longer as time passes. I guess it’s because you now enjoy even the littlest things in life that you once took for granted. That includes taking a shower for more than five minutes without one or two or all of your kids peering into the shower curtain asking when you’ll be finished. Or actually drinking your coffee while it’s still hot. Ask any mom… we’ve come to truly appreciate the simplest things in life we forget.
But one of the things that has always been on my list of simple joys way before I became a mother of two is school supplies shopping. Even when I was a student, one of the things that excite me about going back to school is the fact that I get to buy new pens, notebooks and all kinds of school supplies – too giddy that I’m more excited about the school supply hunt than actually going to school.
One of my not-so-new discoveries on the hottest spot to shop school supplies is SM Stationery. I discovered this way back with my sister when we were on the hunt for specialty foam boards we needed for our product flatlays. We searched all the other book and office supply stores but they didn’t have what we were looking for. It was only SM Stationery that carried them – in different pastel colors and even in different textures!
Let me take you on a virtual tour of my favorite finds here at SM Stationery. I tell you, it’s the best place to shop for your back-to-school needs. Plus, you get to add points to your SM Advantage or Prestige card (LOL, what is adulting? These things make me happy now! Hahaha)
One of my biggest finds: they carry authentic Smiggle! And not as overpriced as outside re-distributors.
Notebooks, pads in all sorts of prints. I love how organized the sections are. The OC in me makes it happy to go around without feeling the need to fix the shelves.
The art supplies section is fully stocked with pens and brushes I don’t see in other bookstores. Who else does a double take when they pass through aisles (right photo)?
If I were with Selene, I could leave her in this section while I went around because she is pen-obsessed. She loves writing in notebooks and making diary entries (reminds me so much of my young self!)

Super mom saver

This backpack already comes with school supplies and it’s only PHP299! One of the best finds for moms who don’t have time to go around and just need to grab a back-to-school item with everything needed.
I especially appreciate that they have religious books for kids because I’ve been teaching Tristan more about Jesus and his stories through an app. It’s hard to find children’s books about religion though so I like that they have this selection.
I remember the full set of Crayola I got as a present when I was younger and I tried to memorize all the colors. Carnation Pink, Cornflower Blue, etc. Time to challenge Selene nga.
School supplies shopping but make it fierce. LOL! Sorry guys, nakakainis ba.
SM Stationery section is one of my little secrets that I’m happy to share with you guys now. I even go here sometimes to look at all the cute office supplies as a way to destress. What is #MOMLIFE! For back to school, there is absolutely no other place I’d go than here as they are fully stocked on items (I hate hearing, “Maam out of stock na po), a wide selection of brands and the designs/styles of their items are just much more palatable to kids.
Have you done your back to school shopping, mommas? Anything here that caught your eye?

What are YOUR school must-haves?

    Same feels momsh! #Momlife 😅😅😅
    Kakatapos lang namin ni Zophie bumili ng things nya for school kaso dun kami sa bookstore (I enrolled her na kahit 3 pa lang kasi last year pa sya nangungulit na mag school, naiinggit sa cousins nya, di na keri ng powers ko makipagtalo, parang matandang sumanib sa katawan ng bata kung mangatwiran 😅😅). Hindi pa nasipat ng eyes ko yang section na yan sa SM. next time, mag check ako dyan, gusto ko sa story books section. Thanks for sharing.

    If you know me, you know I looove colorful pens and highlighters! I love color-coding my notes, my boring ol’ law books and cases. Super easy pa for recit since I know where to look na. Will definitely pass by one of these days.
    Sobrang natuwa ako sa pen aisle, that Crayola rack that looked like it has everything Enjo may want, and that bag with school supplies!!
    SM nga has got it all for you!
