I’ve got 3 exciting blog conferences coming up (check out my sidebar) and I’m trying to think ahead on what to pack. When it comes to note taking, I’m old school all the way. Luckily Shoplet has all of the office supplies I could ever want or need. I selected a couple of different must haves for the different conference types and included some goodies for the kids as well.
Of course I need good pens to write with. That’s a given. And since I will be doing quite a bit of note taking, I picked pens that have an amazing grip. Paper Mate InkJoy Gel Pens do the job and they don’t smear which is a big plus. They keep up with all my writing and last forever it seems.
When it comes to highlighters, the brighter the better. I color code everything like I used to in college. I’m not sure why but it helps me get organized and it’s an easy way to remember categories. My new 4 pack of Sharpie Clear View Highlighters helps me take the guess work out of what goes where.
I don’t use a lot of dry erase markers on my stuff and I don’t think I will need them for the conferences but I sure do go through them for the kids. Not so much for Tyler than for the girls. He’s old enough to keep up with his schedule. We make weekly and monthly calendars while they are in school or I’d never know which way is up or down. They are involved in after school activities and because of the age differences, their events are at different times and usually different places.
For Alyssa’s dry board we use Expo Duel Ended Dry Erase Markers. She prefers these because they are small. She doesn’t like writing with big markers like Abby does.
Abby prefers Expo Magnetic Dry Erase Markers which is the perfect choice for her. She tends to loose things still and these were made for kids and adults like her, in mind.
I’m always gushing on and on about my finds at Shoplet because they’re affordable, reliable, and best of all, they have such a large variety of supplies including but not limited to cleaning supplies, medical supplies and office furniture.
Have you purchased anything recently from Shoplet that you’d like to share?
