This tag has been floating around the last couple months. I really thought it'd be fun to do. I'm working hard on a project [you'll find out soon] that is taking up a lot of my time, and wanted to write an easy fun blog post today. Tags are great for that. This tag was originated by Anna Brim, && I give her full credit for coming up with this tag and it's questions.
||1} What pencil case are you using? I am using this owl pencil case by fashionstationary.com. It's a traditional style pencil case and holds exactly what I need without being too big. I like to keep it small so I can easily bring it with me when I go out && about.
||2} Why do you use it? Well I think I answered that already, but... I use it because it's compact yet holds everything I need. Plus it's supah cute!
||3} Where was it from? I picked this up at either WalMart or Target at the end of back to school season. It was clearanced and I knew I HAD to have it.
||4} Do you carry it out or does it stay home? Both. I throw it in my bag when I know I'll be doing some work either in my planner or my editorial calendar on the go. I also use it at home at my desk because it houses all my favorite pens.
||5} Show us what's inside: The above picture is everything that fits into my pencil case. I have 2 types of post-it flags. Several hello kitty paperclips. A binder clip. An extra oliblock clip. Extra lead for a pencil. All of my Pilot Frixion pens because they're my most used and favorite. Pilot Frixion highlighters. PaperMate flair pens. Several Sharpies. My Hello Kitty coleto style pen. Bic Cristal pens [I love these so much]. A teal LePen pen.
||6} What was in there you forgot about? Uhhh probably the random pens at the top right corner. I never use those.
||7} What is your most used/favorite item? Definitely my Frixion pens. I've become so dependent on them && the fact that I can erase my work... I'm afraid to use any other pen now. However, I've gone back through my planner and looked at past pages && the writing is wearing down a little. I might switch it over to a more permanent ink once I get brave enough.
||8} Now that you have gone through it, what will you leave out? Those random top right corner pens lol. I don't even know where they came from?
||9} How often do you go through & change things? Not real often because I'm pretty set in my ways. Those are all hands down my most used pens, so I don't change it up much. Maybe once I start branching out away from using Frixion pens for everything, I'll change up what's inside.
||10} What are your future plans for your case? New contents? What is on your wish list? Okay to "non-planner" people this question probably seems incredibly ridic && lame... I think it's a good question though. I haven't thought much about my future plans because this case is working out very well for me. I've had for over a year, carry it every day, and it still looks brand new. I don't think I'll ever wear it out. I DO however have a wish list item...
I would love to get my hands on the Kipling 100 pens pencil case. I haven't been able to justify spending $50 on a pencil case for myself though ahah. I take pride in being a frugal && non-hoarding planner addict. I work hard at keeping my hobby from taking over my apartment and my bank account.
