Well it’s day 5 of living out of coolers. Until last night the freezer still worked, yes, now we have more coolers. Thankfully the new fridge is arriving today! Yesterday I was at Target, salivating over cream for my coffee I couldn’t buy, and I noticed school supplies were already prominently displayed in their own Back to School aisle. Seems a little early to me, but I have to admit I love the possibilities a blank spiral (albeit a recycled banana paper notebook!) seems to hold: the fresh start, endless opportunities.
Since the weather finally feels like summer, I’m not quite ready to make the “back to school” jump. But, I thought easing into it with cool items for school, the office, or party favors was a nice slow start. So, here are two of my favorites always on my desk.
Eco-Eraser Sticks- these unique erasers are just too cool! They look just like a color pencil (even arrive sharpened like one), but it’s a recycled eraser. When the tip gets dull, just sharpen like a pencil. As you sharpen it, the color changes. Fun for under a buck!
Staple Free Stapler- no need to worry about little bits of metal jamming your shredder (and one less metal item manufactured from fossil fuels!), this stapler joins papers (4-6 sheets) with a “cut & tuck tab.” Available in six colors.
Daily Green Special: Purchase an eco-eraser stick (http://www.favortheearth.com/goodybags.html) and receive a second one for free! Just write “erase it” in the customer check out notes and we’ll add the 2nd eraser to your order.
