20140313_165823I was given the opportunity to review three Sharpie products from Shoplet.com and Sanford. If you didn’t know, Shoplet.com is a website that sells a variety of products including office supplies, promotional products, promotional shirts, and office stationary.

The first product I reviewed is the Sharpie Premium Pen. When I think I Sharpie, I automatically think of their fabulous permanent markers. I was pleasantly surprised to see an actual pen from this company. The Sharpie Premium Pen has several great features. The pen itself is made from stainless steel which gives it a sleek, professional look. The pen is also refillable. Just unscrew the bottom of the pen and replace the ink cartridge. The ink from this pen is also fade, smear, and water resistant. Another thing I liked about this pen is that the ink didn’t bleed through the pages.

The next product I received is the Sharpie Neon Permanent Markers. These permanent markers come in a pack of five and include the vivid colors of orange, green, blue, pink, and yellow. These markers can be used on paper, plastic, wood, and leather. My kids love these markers and have used them to decorate various items. I liked that these markers produced such bright and bold colors. These markers also glow fluorescent under black light. My son had some fun decorating a pair of sunglasses with these permanent markers.

The final product I reviewed is the Sharpie Metallic Permanent Markers. These markers are different from other permanent markers I have tried from Sharpie. These markers almost reminded me of several paint pens I have tried in the past. I loved the metallic gold and silver ink that these markers produced. The ink is also fade-resistant, water-resistant, and quick-drying.

20140126_161021I was given the opportunity to review two products from House of Doolittle and Shoplet.com. Shoplet.com is a wonderful website that sells a variety of products including office supplies, promotional products, promotional shirts, and office stationary.

The first product I reviewed is the Business Planner. This planner is great for keeping you organized and up to date on all your plans. I love this little planner. I am able to  keep track of all my appointments and write down when each of my bills are due. It helps me to never miss a date or payment. Each date slot in this book has plenty of room to write down what needs to be done. It even has time slots, so you won’t miss the exact time you need to be somewhere. I also liked that it has an expense record section to keep track of all your business expenses for the week. This planner is bigger than others I have tried, which makes keeping track of my busy schedule even easier.

The next product I was sent for review is the 2014 calendar. This is a large calendar that is meant to go on your desk to allow you to keep track of important dates. This calendar also helps to keep me organized. I like being able to just look down at my desk top to see what dates I have free or what times I have appointments. This calendar also has a large section for notes on the side which I have rarely seen with other desk calendars.

To purchase any of these products head on over to shoplet.com.

Master Caster Product Review

December 31, 2013

20131231_185204I was given the opportunity to do a product review of three Master Caster products from Shoplet.com. Shoplet.com is a wonderful website that sells a variety of products including office supplies, promotional products, promotional shirts, and office stationary.

The first product I received is the Rolling Wrist Rest to use while at your computer. This wrist rest is meant to give your wrist support and comfort while navigating your mouse and computer keyboard. I found this product to be very useful. It is one of those products where you don’t know what’s missing until you have one for yourself. The pad is quite comfortable and provided plenty of support for my wrist. I found that my wrist wasn’t having to bend quite so much with all the added support. I like how the wrist rest was able to roll anywhere I wanted it to go. Overall, I found this product to be a great addition to my computer desk.

The next product I was asked to review is the Furniture Touch-Up Kit. I was really excited to try this product. With kids around my house I have a few scratches that can use touching up on some of my furniture. This touch-up kit comes with five touch-up markers and three filler sicks. The markers are meant to be used on minor scratches, worn edges, blemishes, and imperfections. The filler sticks are for deeper scratches, gouges, nail holes, and cracks. This product worked really well in covering up small scratches as well as bigger imperfections in my wood furniture. The only complaint I had is I wished that it came in black too, to help with my black wood furniture. The colors this kit covers are walnut, dark mahogany, cherry, red mahogany, mahogany, dark oak, light oak, and natural finishes.

The last product I received for review is the Microfiber Gloves. These gloves are perfect for use during the winter. I have always had problems with using my smart phone with gloves on, and these microfiber gloves solved my problem perfectly. These gloves contain specially designed fibers that allow you to use touchscreen on any electronic with a touchscreen. They are also good for cleaning your screen without scratching. You can also wash and reuse these gloves without losing their full effect.

Medline Product Review

October 28, 2013

20131028_204659

Recently, I received four Medline products for review from the wonderful people over at Shoplet.com. This website sells a wide variety of products which includes office supplies,  promotional products, office stationary, and promotional shirts.

I was happy to find that Shoplet also carries an array of personal care items for your everyday needs. Here is a little about the products I received.

Cleansing Foam: This cleansing foam is meant to be a gentle cleanser to your skin. You can use it on your entire body. The foam is tear free, hypoallergenic, and non-sensitizing. This cleanser also provides added moisture to the skin while reducing redness.

The directions on this cleanser state that you are to spray it on the area and then gently wipe clean with a damp cloth. While I liked the mildness of this product because my skin is sensitive, I just didn’t feel like my face was getting clean enough. I have never used a cleaner that didn’t lather up and that is what I felt was lacking with this product. Also, I was conflicted about rinsing it off once I was done, since it says to use a damp cloth to wipe it off.

Nourishing Moisturizer: This brand of skin cream is meant to restore nutrients and hydration to your dry and cracked skin. It also promises to help maintain your skin’s natural moisture barrier. This product is also hypoallergenic and non-sensitizing.

The thing I liked most about this product is the smell. It is heavenly. To me, it smells like a mix between vanilla and cocoa butter, two of my favorite scents. The moisturizer itself is very lightweight and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy.

Hydrating Moisturizer: This moisturizer is made with a 24% silicone blend and is both breathable and water-resistant. This moisturizer promises to be long-lasting while nourishing dry and cracked skin.

I loved this hydrating moisturizer. From the moment I put it on it just felt different than any other moisturizer I have tried. This formula is thicker than I am used to in a moisturizer, but once it is on your skin you won’t notice because it doesn’t leave behind a heavy greasy feeling. I like the fact that it is water-resistant which is not something I see often with most moisturizers. Once again the smell is great with this product.

Flushable Wipes: These wipes can be used to clean, moisturize, and sooth the skin. They are completely flushable since that are made with materials that easily break down when flushed. These wipes are also hypoallergenic and alcohol free.

These handy wipes are good for use with just about anything normal wipes are used for. They do a good job of cleaning and leaving the skin feeling refreshed.

If you are interested in purchasing head on over to shoplet.com to check out these are their other great products.

It’s back-to-school time once again. That means soon we will be heading to the stores to buy school supplies for our kids. With all the products to choose between it can get a little confusing and overwhelming trying to decide which products are best. I was introduced to the Prang and Ticonderoga brands of product last week when I was asked to do a review.

Here are the items that I received:

Ticonderoga Pencils: The box says it all “The World’s Best Pencil.” I love these pencils. My kids love these pencils. The quality of the wood these pencils are made from is superb. You know how you sharpen a pencil some times and the lead keeps coming out of the pencil after it’s sharpened? Well, these pencils didn’t do that. Just that fact alone had me sold on this brand of pencil. The writing quality is great. Nice and dark color to what you are writing. The box I received came already sharpened which was an added bonus.

Prang Watercolors: I was able to compare these watercolors to another popular brand, and I saw a distinct difference between the quality of each brand. The Prang brand of watercolors came with a wooden handled brush while the other brand came with a plastic brush. The bristle part of the brush was also thicker on the Prang watercolors than it was on the other brand. As for paint quality, the Prang watercolors ended up being darker and more rich looking than the popular watercolors. The Prang watercolors also have extra deep pans which means more paint that will hopefully last longer than other brands.

Prang Classic Art Markers: Markers are something that my household uses a lot of with two kids. The problem usually is they don’t last long. They either run out quick with too much use or they dry out and don’t work because someone left the lid off the marker. Prang markers are designed to not dry out even when the cap is left off. The color quality is also great.

Prang Colored Pencils: These colored pencils were unique to any other colored pencil I have seen on the market. The Prang colored pencils are triangular shaped and bigger than a normal shaped pencil. This design is meant to provide additional comfort for smaller hands. When I was able to compare this brand of colored pencil to another popular brand, there was a noticeable difference in color quality.

All the above mentioned products can be found at Target, Wal-Mart, OfficeMax, Staples, Office Depot, Hobby Lobby, Kmart and other stores.

The people over at Dixon Ticonderoga have offered Coupon Sweeper readers an exclusive coupon on their Prang brand watercolors. Go HERE to get your coupon now.

Peanut butter is somewhat of a staple in my household. I usually buy two big jars per month. There isn’t much variety when it comes to peanut butter. You have either crunchy or smooth to choose between. When I was given the opportunity to review PB Crave I was excited to see that someone decided peanut butter didn’t have to be so boring anymore.

PB Crave comes in four yummy flavors. Coco Bananas with cocoa, honey, and banana flavoring. Razzle Dazzle with raspberry, white chocolate, cocoa, and honey. Cookie Nookie with chocolate chips and cookie dough flavors. Also, Choco Choco with honey, semi-sweet and dark chocolate. My favorite flavor is the Coco Bananas, but my family loves the Cookie Nookie the best.

Here’s a great recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge I found online that goes perfect with any flavor of of PB Crave. I made mine with the Cookie Nookie. Love!

Ingredients:
8 ounces unsalted butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound powdered sugar
To Make:
Combine the butter and peanut butter in a big microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Take out of microwave and stir. Microwave mixture again on high for 2 more minutes. (Use caution when removing this mixture from the microwave, it will be very hot.) Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. The mixture will become hard to stir and lose its sheen. Spread into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper. Fold the excess parchment paper so it covers the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool, about 2 hours. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
Here’s my finished product:

If you are looking for great desk organization products you should think about trying these great products from Deflect-o. Shoplet.com has a variety of Deflect-o products available for purchase. I was given an opportunity to review four of their products, and I have to say that I loved each and every one.

The first product I received is the Deflect-o Desk Cube. The desk cube lets you store several desk items including post-it notes and other small items. Personally, I use my desk cube to store important mail items that I want to keep track of so they won’t go lost in the chaos on my desk.

The second product I received is the Deflect-o Desk Cube with four drawers. This desk cube is great for storing small desk necessities such as paper clips, staples, rubber bands, among other items. The drawers are even long enough to hold pens, pencils, and markers for storage.

Another product I received is the Deflect-o Desk Cube with X dividers. I love this desk cube because it allows me to hold all my pens, pencils, and markers while keeping them separated and organized.

The final Deflect-o product I received is the Two Drawer Desk Cube Organizer. This cube has two larger drawers for storing a variety of desk items. I use this desk cube to store items such as scissors, white out, envelops, and many other things.

Overall, I really enjoy all these organization products. My desk is a lot more organized, and I am not able to find many things that I once had to waste time searching for in the past. Another thing worth mentioning about these products are that they come with clips that allow you to link the cubes together.

If you are ever in the market for office supplies, Shoplet.com has a wide variety to choose from and great prices. I was recently given the opportunity to review a few of their office supplies, and I have to say I was impressed with what they sent me.

The Tops Cornell Note Taking System Legal Pad is a handy writing pad that allows you to actually take notes on the paper without having to ruin your work. The pad has an area for your work as well as a large margin on the left hand side that allows you to take as many notes as you need. The product is unlike any other product I have seen sold in stores.

20130428_173824The Tops Idea Collective Notebook  is another great product sold at Shoplet. These high end notebooks are great for students and for people who just need a good notebook. I really liked these notebooks. The cover seems to be really durable, which I find lacking in other notebooks on the market.

20130428_173759The Tops Idea Collective Journal is a little journal that gives you a place to write down all your thoughts and ideas. This little book is great if you need something small to take with you on the go, or just something that will come in handy during different situations. I like that fact that this journal comes with a band to help keep it closed. This is great for privacy.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these products head on over to Shoplet.com.
