Whats in my pencil case?
So I have done my shopping, and I am finally all set (or as I might think, because best believe that if I spot a 50 % off on the stationary rack that I will be stocking up again) - It should be noted that these things are the things that I bring to school and that I have double the amount (or more) of each item in my closet, because of my “what if” thinking
In my pencil case I have the following
- Pencils from TIGER
- Pens from TIGER
- Highligters from TIGER
- Eraser from TIGER
- Pencil sharpener from TIGER
- Pencil case from TIGER
- Highlighters from STAEDLER
- Muji Gel pens (0,5) - in Blue and Black
- Muji Hexagonal twin pen (blue)
Now I am not the most “brand” oriented person when it comes to stationary (ofcourse I wouldn’t mind if someone gifted me a shit ton of muji pens, however they are not my go to) - most of my stationary is from TIGER, since it is cheap, it does its work, and it is so close to me that I can stock up and buy new ones all the time (the more expensive brands such as muji is only available for me if I travel) And one of my biggest pet peeves is changing the colour or the type of pen I have used in the same notebook or within the same topics.
One thing that I however do like to spent my money on is good highlighters, the ones from staedler are not that expensive, they sell them in my university for around 20 dkk for 3 of them. Which is a good price (the double price of the TIGER ones, however the colour is better and the last of the high lighter is longer). But I still use the TIGER ones for my written notes (which I will explain in my note taking routine which will soon be ready)
Only thing that I do however HATE that is in my pencil case, is my pencil sharpener! It sucks! It just ruins the pens and it is so inconvenient. So I might buy a new one soon.
It should be noted, that the muji stuff I use, are only for my journals. I dont take everyday notes with them, because as I said they are both expensive and they are not that easy for me to get my hands on.
What stationary can you guys recommend? And do you know a good pencil sharpener because I really need a good one!
