Attn: Teachers and Students! Great Selection of Pens and Markers Found at Shoplet.com

Disclosure: I received the following item at no cost in return for an honest review.

Even though the school year has just ended, it's never too early to start thinking about school needs for the coming year. Where should teachers and students go to find the latest and greatest in pens and markers? Shoplet.com.

As a home school teacher, Shoplet has a great resource of school supplies, and that includes all the pens and markers that we need like Sharpie Highlighters, Expo Dry Erase Markers, and Paper Mate Inkjoy Gel Pens. These are items that we use often in our home.


We have several whiteboards in our home. One is used exclusively for countdowns to holidays and birthdays. I let the kids use their imagination with this one. The Expo Dual Ended Dry Erase Markers are perfect for them. These are a bit longer than your usual markers, but with the dual tips, they can use both a bold color and then switch back to black when needed. The chisel tips let them draw wide or thin lines. Also, the low odor ink doesn't create a stink.


This is why I love Shoplet as I have never seen these markers in a store before - the Expo Magnetic Dry Erase Markers. These have magnets attached to each and ever marker. I have another whiteboard on our refrigerator that we write on our meal plan for the week and our shopping list. Having a marker with an attached strong magnet right on the whiteboard, instead of in the drawer, is super handy. These, too, have the chisel tips which allow me to write on the board in an elegant calligraphy. If I make a mistake, there are erasers built onto each of the caps for quick erasing.

In my opinion, Expo, with their bold colors and low odor ink is the best dry erase marker out there, and we all love the selection we find at Shoplet.


One great item that students really can use are highlighters. I used them to highlight my notes all those years ago when I was in high school and college, and I encourage my kids to use them. Sharpie has really evolved since I went to school. These Sharpie Clear View Highlighters are the best! This highlighter has smear resistant ink. It doesn't smear the text in books at all (which drove me nuts when I was in school). These markers have a good chisel point that gives you precise highlighting for thin and thick lines. Because of the see through tips, you can be more accurate in your highlighting.


You don't have to be a teacher or a student to enjoy a good pen. One that has a premium ink system that has super smooth gel ink that delivers crisp, clean lines for effortless writing is what you will find with the Paper Mate Inkjoy Gel Pen. These pens have a larger barrel that were designed to fit well in your hand, and they won't slip out of your hand with their full body grip. I find that the gel ink dries quickly, and this is my new pen of choice to sign documents, checks, and correcting some homework, too.


As a homeschool teacher I need a wide variety of pens, pencils, and markers. I am so happy with the selection that I find at Shoplet. Shop Shoplet.com for all your office supplies, They also carry quite an assortment of cleaning supplies, medical supplies, office furniture, and everything else inbetween all at great deals with fast and free shipping on orders $35 and above.

Scotties and the June Feline Adoption Event Was a Tremendous Success

This information was provided to me by Scotties® Facial Tissues. This is a compensated post.

The month of June is National Cat Adoption Month. To help get support feline adoptions, Scotties® Facial Tissues by Royale® supported three rescue organizations along the east coast in an effort to place select cats and kittens into loving permanent homes.


From June 1-7, 2017 was a big event for cat adoptions. In a big effort to sponsor feline adoptions, these three organizations each received $5,000 from Scotties: the Animal Protective Foundation in New York; The Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Massachusetts; and The Humane Society of Tampa Bay in Florida.


During this first week of June, because of the generous donation from Scotties, all fees associated with adopting a cat or kitten were waived that these participating locations. All adoptable felines were spayed or neutered, microchipped, screened for temperament, and were up to date on all shots and vaccinations.


From June 1st through the 7th during “Scotties Adoption Week," Scotties was hoping to rehome approximately 100 to 150 cats nationally, but is proud to say that in 2017 alone over 400 cats and kittens have gone into loving forever homes. What wonderful news!


Since 2014, Scotties has had an ongoing effort to increase the number of cats and kittens to go to good homes. In the past four years, Scotties has found homes for more than 700 cats and kittens. According to John Robertson, Scotties Marketing Director, "Here at Scotties, we are delighted to see this program in its fourth year. We take great pride in helping hundreds of cats find the loving forever homes they so desperately need."


Are you thinking of a cat as a pet? If so, I urge you to choose one from your local shelter. You won't regret it.

Scotties Facial Tissues are kitten-y soft! To keep up with the latest Scotties news, be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter.



When The Unthinkable Happens To Your New Prescription Glasses - GlassesShop.com

Disclosure: I received the following item at no cost in return for an honest review.

The unthinkable did happen to my husband's new prescription glasses - the frames broke!


While he was walking between the house and the garage about three weeks ago, the frames just snapped. Luckily my husband has some very quick reflexes as he caught the lens before it hit the ground. His lens was saved, but the frames? Irreparable.


What to do? I contacted GlassesShop.com that day to see what could be done and found out they have an easy return policy. Because it was still within the warranty period of 14 to 30 days of receiving the glasses, GlassesShop.com happily sent my husband out a replacement frame along with a new lens case and lens cleaning cloth.


It was very easy for my husband to replace the lenses in his new frames - he just had to warm them up slightly under some hot water. His good lenses slipped right into place.

My husband is very happy with the easy process. I'm happy, too, as he did do a quick nerdy fix to the old frames while waiting for the new ones to arrive. Ha!

Many thanks to GlassesShop.com!

Giveaway: Sweese Mortar and Pestle

Disclosure: I received the following item at no cost in return for an honest review.

When we cook, we love to use fresh herbs and aromatic spices. We have moved on from using prepacked dried herbs and factory ground spices. Why? Because there is a huge taste difference.


Grinding your own herbs and spices means that you, and not some far away factory, are bringing out all the fresh flavors and oils. This delicious freshness will add so much more flavor to your dishes as it has to ours. Here's just a few of the items that we grind by hand: rosemary, anise, cloves, celery seed, cinnamon, allspice, red pepper...there are so many that we grind ourselves freshly for each meal that we cook.

Over the years, we have tried out quite a few mortar and pestle sets, but none can compare to the latest set that I have received. It's a porcelain mortar and pestle set from Sweese. With the porcelain mortar and a wood pestle, we find that we can more easily do a finer grind. The pestle is made of high quality original wood, healthy to use.

We find that this set not big and heavy. It's the perfect smaller size so we can grind just the amount that we need more simply. It can be used for grinding and crushing herbs, grains, spices, nuts, roots, tea or pills. This is an easy way to make sauces and dressings for dinner, or rice and vegetable paste for your baby. Pour out your ingredients confidently with the convenient pour spout.

Because the mortar is made of pure porcelain, it is stain-free, easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Since the pestle is made from wood, it does need to be hand washed. As with all my wooden kitchen tools and boards, I do, from time to time, use butcher block oil on them to keep them in top condition.


Using a mortar and pestle could not be easier. It's very simple and actually satisfying to use.

  1. Put your ingredients in the mortar and hold the mortar in place with one hand.
  2. Hold the pestle in your other hand with a firm but comfortable grip.
  3. Press the rounded end of the pestle down onto the ingredients and roll it against the mortar while applying firm pressure.
  4. Grind your herbs or spices until you have the grind that you desire.
Grinding your own herbs and spices brings a flavor and aroma to your meals that just can't be beat. A Sweese Mortar and Pestle set will help give your families better tasting meals.

GlassesShop.com - Exceptional Quality Prescription Glasses At Affordable Prices

Disclosure: I received the following item at no cost in return for an honest review.

Are you looking for inexpensive prescription glasses that come with an affordable price tag? Then you need to get yours at GlassesShop.com.

My husband has a very tricky eyeglass prescription as he has an astigmatism in both eyes, and because of that, the optometrist charges quite a bit for them. Since he is a residential contractor, a hands-on man, he does tend to go through his eyeglasses much quicker than what we would like. Getting inexpensive prescription eyeglasses that are quality made, and, of course, stylish frames is a goal of ours.


Where do we go to get his prescription eyeglasses?  We go to GlassesShop.com. Here we are assured that his glasses will come to us with the lenses ground to perfection with stylish frames. (I swear he actually loves getting the latest styles every year.)


This year's frames that he chose is Douglas Aviator. What a bargain these frames were for only $29.95. These frames are made of a high quality acetate material. The fashionable tortoise color and vintage aviator design adds a dash of mystery to a buttoned-down, professional look. One thing he really likes about these frames are the spring hinges.

What's also included in the frames? Single vision lenses! That's right. That tricky prescription of my husband's is included in the price of the glasses frames.


How were the lenses? This year my husband updated his prescription, and GlassesShop.com did the mose exceptional job at getting his lenses correct! From the first moment he put them on, these glasses were perfection. He didn't even have any adjustment time. They fit him perfectly, and he is very very happy with the comfort of these frames.


Included in the price of the frames is a  $129.00 Value FREE package

  • Single Vision Lenses (which I already mentioned)
  • Anti-Scratch Coating
  • Protective Case - very nice!
  • Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

My husband's prescription eyeglasses were of exceptional quality. Just think of the perfection in your own prescription lenses that you can get from GlassesShop.com - all with stylish top quality frames with optical technicians that will inspect your eyeglasses extensively before they are delivered. 


GlassesShop is an American owned and operated online retailer of  eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, and reading glasses. Since the website launch in 2004, they have delivered over a million pairs of eyeglasses while maintaining their standard of providing the highest quality at affordable prices.
