Today let’s talk about my favourite 5 stationery finds.
I have written about three of these on the blog before but it’s nice to know if someone is still using the thing they recommended two years ago, isn’t it?
Right, let’s get to it:
Pentel 0.7 mm liquid gel pens
I spoke about them here and I included one in each Let’s Do This workshop pack, and the delegates agreed with me – these are indeed the best pens in the world.
I still love them.
Warning – if you use them at work, label your pens because they might find feet.
My favourite colours are the pink and orange, and the sky blue.
2. Staedtler Wopex pencils
I’m not really a pencil person but I bought this pack because the colours were bright and happy, and then once I opened the pack, I realised they feel amazing to the touch.
I’m a very tactile person and these pencils have a bit of stick to them and they almost feel magnetic when you grab the whole bunch.
Not that that’s a reason to buy a pencil, but if you like pencils, then I think you’ll love this part.
And then they write really well – dark colour, soft and smooth lead, and still strong.
I bought my pack at CNA for about R25.
3. Bic wax highlighters
I wrote a whole post on these and I still love them, so read all about them here.
4. Staedtler triplus fineliners
I see people colouring with these pens but I use them for normal writing of lists in notebooks and in my diary. My favourite part? All the bright colours…. and apparently they’re dry safe. I don’t know if that’s true but I’m not taking a chance.
5. Staedtler metallic markers
I wrote about these too before and they are still one of my favourites. I “play” with the kids when they draw and craft, and I doodle with my metallic markers, make cards, etc.
I found these recently at Pick and Pay on sale for R20 a pack – a bargain, I think.
