What's In My Pencil Case [Updated]


In 2014 I did a "What's In My Pencil Case" post.  I thought it was time to do an update.  Over a year is a lifetime in planner supply world, am I right?

I am currently using the Kipling 100 pen case in Platinum Metallic with the monkey "Claire".  I've been using for awhile now and I'm still very much in love with it.


In the top left I keep my Target One Spot pencils, highlighters, random gel pens, and my Faber-Castell PITT pen.  I use the pencils a lot actually and I keep several in there just in case I don't put one back.  They're cheap so I don't mind losing them if I take one out and forget about it.  On the right I finally took all my Staedtler Tripulus Fineliners out of the case they came in and added them to this.  I pretty much ONLY use the Fineliners in my planner.  So taking up room in the bottom section for the pen case of Fineliners didn't make sense.  Don't worry... I kept the original case too.


I utilize the inside of the pen case to hold random planner odds and ends that I might need for the week.  I take this case and my planner to work with me, so it's nice to have several other "on the go" planner supplies.  I will replenish this weekly after decorating my weekly layout.  I like to change out items that will match my current spread.


I keep page flags, post it notes, and a note pad that corresponds with my planner decoration for the week.  I'm already feeling Valentine's spreads [I know... it's not even February yet] so that's the theme in there currently.  I like having these for little notes and notations that might need added throughout the week.


I also keep an extra InkJoy in the bottom section.  My filofax has the twin to this InkJoy.  I like this pen for writing notes in my filofax, and it doesn't fit comfortably in the top section.  I also keep one of my Kate Spade binder clips in the bottom.  I always find myself needing a binder clip.  I don't like to use the erasers on my pencils because then they look ugly [it's a personal issue lol].  So I keep a full size Kate Spade eraser in my pencil case for when I need to erase things.  I also keep matching washi to the week's decorations.


Finally in the bottom I keep my little album of planner stickers.  I don't use a lot of planner stickers, but the ones I do fit into this little photo album.  I'm more of a stamper as you know, but sometimes you just need a sticker.  This little photo album fits perfectly in the bottom with my other accessories.  

I carry this Kipling in my work bag along with my Limelife Planner, my Domino A5, and my iPad.  It's the perfect combo for me to do my Blog and Etsy work when I'm away from my laptop.

I hope you enjoyed this update!  What do you use for your pen case?
