When I was a CM Consultant I loved their pens but due to price they are only used in my scrapbooks, never in my planners. Due to the propensity for lines to be changed, whether it be bold tip being cut, changing colours in a set or dropping the line to replace it with double ended I wound up with a large collection by taking advantage of specials.
Through my planner friends I discovered the Kipling 100 Pen Case and the lovely Michelle organised a group buy during a sale (check out Kipling USA's Facebook page for our feedback on our poor experience).
Anyway Today Kipling case arrived and I set about working out which pens to keep in it.
Do I keep my pens and highlighters I use for my planner?
Do I keep my CM pens in it?
Do I save it for something else?
In the end the best fit was my CM pen collection with 3 extras thrown in.
And so my lovely Typo case from Michelle remains home to my planner pens, with some washi stashed under them that won't fit in my washi storage.
My CM Fine Tips
My Round tips and Bold tips, a Red Eye reduction pen, 3 of the double ended CM pens & 2 ZIG Caligraphy pens.
2 black Sharpies for writing on my plastic flags, 3 frixons (need a black and red still), 2 4 colour pens, cheap red and blue pen, pen my best friend sent me and a set of 6 highlighters on top.
Under the pens is a stash of washi, mechanical pencil, correction tape, eraser and various mechanical pencil leads.
I allow myself this with what I can fit in it and the planner I need to take and that is it, the rest of my bag is for clothes and food.
