We’ve been on tumblr, seen those minimalistic frost white pencil boxes and plastic case pens. We’ve seen videos on DIY back-to-school tote bags, where cheery US youtubers tell us we can get tote bags from “the dollar store” for “a dollar or two”. In Singapore, however, these things can be quite expensive if you shop at Popular or ArtBox, but with Muji, the minimalistic japanese store, the perpetually broke school-goer can get her hipster supplies for cheap too.

Bestsellers from the stationery collection include their 0.38 and 0.5 black pens (judging by how fast their refills go out of stock), their thin lined notebooks which saw me through two years of speedy but neat note-taking (thanks to the smooth paper and thin line space forcing small penmanship), the ever-popular clear pencil cases ($6.90) and their tote bags at $2.90 with chops and stamps provided to decorate them.

Not only that, their food corner stocks the best under-the-table snacks for school, such as $1.90 marshmallows which are smooth and burst in your mouth, and crispy rice crackers that are lightly salted and extremely yummy. Muji really is every student’s budget school supply store.
