Collecting Hello Kitty Stationery Essentials – My Lifetime Hobby That Won’t Fade Out

Published on February 25, 2014, by in Sophie' Blog.

A Friend’s Reminiscing Blog

As I was busy tidying up all my personal belongings, a familiar box caught my attention!

As soon as I lifted the cover of the box, sweet memories of my younger years started to pour in. I cannot help but smile as I check through every piece of Hello Kitty stationery and trinkets that I have collected through the years. Those years when I was so fascinated with every Sanrio item that I saw displayed in my favorite bookstore and stationary shop. Well, that fascination hasn’t grown fainter until today. Truth is…I am still a Hello Kitty solid fan! And whenever there is time, I still skim through my collection of items smiling immediately upon seeing the cute face of the world’s most curious and friendly kitten.

Looking back, I can recall how I was so insistent on saving money from my allowance so that I can buy the latest Hello Kitty stationery on display. There were even times when I meet and hang out with my school mates and the other girls in the village where we live to share our most recent purchases to include in each of our collections.

With my collection growing so much, my fellow Hello Kitty fanatic friends are sometimes asking me to sell some of them. But not even once did I agree. Even until day, I have no plans of giving away my Hello Kitty collectibles.

All the items in my collection are precious in my sight. But I also play favorites, just like everyone else. Funny it may be, but I really value my stationeries and I took pride of this meager in price but big time in emotional investment collection.

As I slowly age in number, my desire to collect anything with Hello Kitty label did not wane. I make it a point to check online for purchase a particular product to be added on my very own treasured collection. I know that there is nothing wrong with doing this. Collecting Hello Kitty is a healthy hobby that I have started when I was a child and this won’t end there. I will grow older but would still continue adding a new piece for my compilation, regardless if it is priced cheap or reasonably pricey for as long as it appeals to me.

The Role of Hello Kitty Stationery in my Life

Perhaps, you are wondering, why I am so engrossed with collecting Hello Kitty stationery. Let me share my own personal reason for this fondness…

It’s no secret that stationery items have been available since time immemorial. The pen and paper precisely have been instruments to change the lives of many people. Isn’t it that the letter is written with the use of pen and paper long ago when emails, computers and the Internet still do not exist? Love letters, for example where written in a stationery and this helped my now husband to express his feelings towards me. It changed my life because without that love letter, I would not be happy living with my family, raising my kids and teaching them about the role of stationery in people’s lives.

Hello Kitty Stationery: Essential Pieces and Why I Continue to Collect Them

When you look into my Hello Kitty Stationery collection, you would notice multiple pieces. Allow me to provide you with insights on why I continue to have a collection of them.

  • Diary – Even if there are diary applications in cell phones, computers and tablets, having a paper-based Hello Kitty diary can let you see and write easily about your appointments. You can immediately turn to your diary to jot down important happenings in a specific day.

  • Pens and pencils

Although most of our tasks are being performed through the computer, eventually pens and pencils would always be needed for writing. From ball point pens to fountain pens, you will need to ensure that you have the right pens at home and in the office.

And to keep pencils from missing or basically lying around anywhere in the house or office, which can ruin the neat surroundings of the area, pencil cases are considered stationery essentials too.

  • Sticky Notes and Memo Pads

Memo pads and sticky notes are useful stationery items. I actually use these for writing down names and numbers when in a rush. When I need to leave a short message for my husband and my kids, I simply jot it down on a memo pad and put it in the refrigerator door. They easily retrieve it once they go to the kitchen.

  • Notepad

Notepads are useful. When you need to take down notes during a meeting, jotting down reminders when on the phone or writing down something out of the blue, having a notepad in handy would save the day. At times when you feel like being creative, keeping a note pad by your side is a good idea.

  • Folders, File Organizers, Document Storage Bag

These are stationery essentials because they help keep the paperwork organized. Having a safe place to keep documents, receipts and billings avoid misplacing small but important paper pieces.

  • Pen Holder/Desk Organizers

Also referred to as desk tidies, ceramic or wooden pen holders are designed to keep pencils, pens and other stationery pieces tidily organized and kept. Since it is usually placed on the table, this multipurpose holder also keeps small things close to hand when needed. With a desk tidy around, you would no longer need to waste your time and energy in looking for misplaced pencils, memo pads or scissors.

You see, if you carefully take into account the uses of the stationery items that I have mentioned, it would be easy for you to understand why I have cultivated my fondness for them since the first day I started collecting Sanrio stationery pieces. Indeed my Hello Kitty stationery collections are worthy to be referred to as stationery essentials.

 

And now…here I am…Starting to gather all the items that I took out of my favorite box. Knowing that one day, I will open it again either to add newly purchased bits and pieces, for my collection to grow in number or get some for our consumption.
