Pens, pencils, and notebooks, oh my! It's time to restock your school (and office!) supplies. Here's what's new and trendy this fall.
They're also a great affordable giveaway, starting at $0.55 each!
I suspect these will be a new standard, especially in households that might share highlighter-age school kids with smaller kids who like markers. They start at $1.48 each.
While we're talking about annotating and marking, what I like even better than markers are sticky notes. More than for leaving notes to coworkers, I like to use them to bookmark important pages in books. They're great for shared or library books, because comments can be made on the sticky notes instead of on the book itself. I like to have a variety of sizes on hand for different uses.
Prices range from $0.49 to $5.00 for simple booklets of flags, to large desktop caddys, to combos that include flags with rulers, highlighters, or letter openers.
Pencil and paper alone doesn't cut it for school anymore. We're well into the 21st century now. For example, I have a pen with a stylus on the end that I keep in my padfolio that also holds my iPad (with adjustable velcro to hold Nook, Kindle, and other tablet devices as well). Starting at $17.96 for the set.
But the biggest technology needed for school is flash drives. USB memory comes in a variety of styles now, including on pens, lockable, in fun shapes, and by reliable well known brands. 1GB seems to be the starting point in size now, and prices start at $5.83.
