    Why would I pay so much money for stuff that I’m gonna lose by the end of September?

  • Kira

    why would i ever pay 28.00 for paper clips. At the end of the day, thats all they are: paperclips.

  • Lo

    I have that webcam and I love it (:

  • Rae

    These are all cute. However, the Souffle pens aren’t meant for writing. They’re just meant for decorating. The Rilakkuma clips are definitely overpriced. Paper clips get lost so easily too, so I think that’s a bit too extravagant. I do want that mouse though. 😀



    • Liv

      Yes, Indeed. I already got all of my school supplies, and the entire purchase was under 50 dollars… they are not very fashionable, but a little d.i.y. could change that easily. School supplies aren’t supposed to be fashionable, they are supposed to help you get through the school and hold all of your supplies… I’m just sayin… 🙂

  • Alelia

    I think some of these things are a little overpriced but they r really cute !!!!

  • Stina

    is everythin in america that expensive?? dunno, im european, from the north, Estonia to be exact

  • Teddyclaire

    This stuff is soooo cute!

  • blueandyellow

    When I got this email, I got pretty excited. But this reminds me of stuff I would have liked in middle school, not college. :/

  • kate

    i don’t wanna be picky… but you can’t do calculus on that cat calculator. it only has the basic functions on it, so it’s pretty much worthless unless you’re in 6th grade.

    • jansku

      totally agree : /

  • angie

    that mouse is pretty slick, you should give it away on gurl,

  • Amara

    I love the rilakumma paper clips <33
