Getting Ready for Work With Sanford @Shoplet

I received sample products from Shoplet for review purposes. All opinions stated are 100% mine.

School started back last week and it’s time for me to get back to work in my home office. We’ve had such a busy summer, that work will seem like a vacation. The first thing I did when school started back was to clean out and clean off my desk. The kids love getting into my pens and pencils and they disappear. By the end of their summer break, I have to do inventory on my office supplies. Seeing as how everything walked off again this summer, I’m restocking my desk with PaperMate Pens, PaperMate Mechanical Pencils, Sharpie Markers and PaperMate Correction Tape. In my opinion, these are must have items for any office, be it home or at work. Doesn’t that sound like a great Sanford bundle?

I could have a few dozen pens and not have enough. Why that is, I don’t know. Maybe it’s a secret obsession with great writing pens or maybe it’s because I know the kids are obviously magicians who can make dozens of pens disappear. The world may never know which of these is more likely.

So, the first thing I did was to make sure I had plenty of PaperMate Pens, by Sanford. These pens just glide along my paper and with minimal effort, thus helping my arthritis in my hands. They are retractable so I can carry them safely in my handbag. The kids also put a couple of them in their book bags. The handy dandy clip allows for pocket use. It has a nice rubber grip to it so even the sweatiest of hands can write without the pen slipping. They come in a variety of colors and the ink is a variety of colors as well. These pens are super affordable and have a 5/5 star rating.

The kids also put a couple of them in their book bags.

Next up, I stocked up on more PaperMate Mechanical Pencils. The kids use them more than I do but there are times when I need to jot something down with a pencil so I keep these on hand in my office. I love the triangular barrel design of these pencils because are super easy to grip and even when “arthur” is acting up, I can still write as painlessly as possible. These pencils are called Mates which I think it’s cool because it reminds me of Australians and their super cute accents…. “G’day, mate”. These come with black lead and the barrels are assorted colors as seen below. The pencils have a nice size eraser and I can’t think of a single con associated with these mechanical pencils.

I love Sharpie Markers and I have a growing assortment of colors. I use them for so many things and I keep them all over my home. In the kitchen I use them to label meats I put in the freezer. I also add dates to things so I’ll know when the expiration date is. They are easy to see, more so than pens. In my office area, I use them for my work organizer and calendar. There are too many uses for Sharpie Markers for me to name but I’m sure you use them for quite a few too, so you can relate to how important it is to have them on hand.

The PaperMate Correction Tape has been a lifesaver for me in regards to saving time and effort. I love it although I do think this might be my first experience with correction tape. After using it, I don’t want to run out of it. It’s one of my new must have office supplies. If you’ve ever made a mistake and had to redo the work, you should have used this correction tape. It works perfectly to correct single text or lines before you copy or fax your work. “Super strong white tear-proof film resists breaking and applies dry for instant corrections.”

    Okay, confession, pens are my thing! I love pens; especially colored pens, and I love organizing them. Probably one of my favorite things to do is organize!

    My daughter goes back to school at the end of August and I will be doing the same thing. Removing, restocking, and reorganizing. Here is to a great year!
