With July drawing to a close, you might be thinking about getting your hands on some back-to-school products that are unique, practical and fun. You might also be looking for some one-of-a-kind products for your home or office.

Fortunately for shoppers, MUJI,  the unique and diverse Japanese clothing, home goods, craft and decor store that recently came to Canada (and operates a location inside Square One) to provide shoppers with everything from summery linen outfits to unique snacks to stylish aroma diffusers, is working to make life more pleasant for students and professionals with its renowned MUJI stationery.

Just like the rest of the brand’s goods, MUJI’s stationery products feature excellent design and functionality. Whether you are a student or business executive, you can expect the same level of performance and quality from MUJI’s stationery line.

Shoppers looking for stationery are often looking for something distinct that they can call their own. MUJI prides itself on offering a vast array of products, including card cases, gel pens, acrylic storage solutions, manual paper shredders and more. You will be hard pressed to find another extensive stationery collection from another retailer that features a simplified aesthetic to complement functionality.

Products clockwise from left upper corner: Memo pad checklist ($1.50), calculator ($15), portable scissors ($8), retractable eraser ($2), low centre of gravity retractable pencil 0.5 mm ($8), mechanical pencil leads ($3), retractable smooth ballpoint gel ink pens ($2 each), acrylic stackable case 2 drawers ($29), recycled paper word card ($1), soft PP pass case ($3), aluminum card case ($7), aluminum glasses case ($12), hexagonal six-colour pen ($6), 3 colours ballpoint pen with mechanical pen ($4.50), acrylic pen stand ($3), handy shredder ($18). 

MUJI also works to ensure customers don’t have to worry about their favourite pens running out of ink or not being able to find the right size of paper for their binders. MUJI offers refill options for most of its stationery collection–priced individually at an affordable rate. Having refills on hand isn’t just convenient–it’s good for the environment, as the original product can be reused.

Globally, MUJI’s Gel Ballpoint Pens, available in a variety of point thicknesses and colours, are its #1 best sellers. In Canada alone, the brand sell tens of thousands of them annually (and at $1.50 each, their popularity makes sense).

Also among best sellers are MUJI notebooks, that come in various types and sizes. They can be used to take notes, to draw, or to stay organized, as MUJI has seen with the recent “bullet journal” trend.

Products clockwise from left upper corner: Recycled paper index ($3), Afforestation paper refill paper ($4), PP binder ($10) PP Cover double ring notebook ($5.50), afforestation paper notebook 5 PCS/pack ($4.50), backpack with side zip pocket-red ($49), high quality smooth paper double ring notebook grid ($5), white plastic eraser ($1), PP double pen case ($3), black plastic eraser ($1), correction tape ($4), glue tape ($4), recycled papers stickies index ($3), low centre of gravity mechanical pencil 0.5MM ($8), retractable eraser ($2), gel ink ballpoint pens-assorted colors ($2 each), mechanical pencil leads ($3), ABS Ruler ($1.50), recycled paper word card ($1), recycled pet cutting ruler ($6.50), afforestation paper notebook 5 PCS/pack–customized at in-store stamp station ($5)

According to stationery specialists at MUJI, a bullet journal is an accessible and dynamic form of organizational planning and no two bullet journals are alike, as every layout is unique and very personal. It makes planning easier and, ultimately, more fun.

MUJI works to offer tools that allow people to explore, to plan, and to create. The brand’s spiral-bound dot grid notebooks ($4.00-9.50), available in three different sizes, are a big favourite among the bullet journal crowd. The dot grid pages provide structure and uniformity, but also allow for free rein for the more creative types.

During the back-to-school season, MUJI’s product line flies off the shelves. Some of the biggest sellers include the company’s low center of gravity pencils ($8.00), polypropylene pen cases ($2.00-3.00) and the 5-pack afforestation paper notebooks that are available in two sizes ($4.50-5.00), which feature multi-colour spines (essential for distinguishing between different school subjects).

MUJI also plans on releasing some new products this season.

The company’s schedule and planner notebook series is about to hit every store. The notebooks offer daily, weekly, and monthly layouts and the planners cover the span of either the full academic or calendar year.

MUJI stationery, though very simple in design, allows for creativity. It’s ideal for anyone looking for both structure and fun. The best part? It’s very affordable!
