Stationery vs. Stationary: BBC Tutorial

A big thanks to @polomex on Twitter, who posted a link to this animated BBC tutorial on how to remember the difference between stationary and stationery.

Nifty Mnemonic:
  • Stationary with an "a" = "Attention!" (when soldiers stand motionless)
  • Stationery with an "e" = Envelopes
