It's practical din naman in your case considering the tons and tons of materials to read  ;) It is also a way to liven up the pages. Actually kapag nakakakita naman ako ng ganyan karaming highlighters parang sarap magkulay este magbasa pala ng book kahit pa too technical ang content.

Here's mine pero partial palang. Ang dami kasi kung pipicturan ko lahat lol

Highlighters
Fountain Pens - di ko na mahanap yung iba
Muji Pens
Staedtler Pens
Smencils - ayaw ko gamitin kasi nakakahinayang mawala yung scent lol

And this is where I placed some of my school supplies. Halo halo na yung iba dyan: http://bit.ly/gYuXCF

Thanks for sharing sis! I love those staedtler pens too. Minsan alternative to highlighters na malalaki.

I love your organizer box too.

^^True. Konti na nga lang highlighters ko lol Dati sobrang dami pa. I buy backups para di na ko pupunta ng bookstore.

^Welcome sis :)

I have a filing cabinet pala lol Kasi ang dami kong papers na binabasa tapos tinatago ko sila for reference. Binilhan ako ng dad ko during my 1st year in law school. I already cleaned up that cabinet, ngayon nakalagay nalang mga important papers and magazines.

Ano pala yung mga unique office/school supplies na na-discover niyo? I remembered kasi yung magic clips, tuwang tuwa mga classmates ko nung pinakita ko sa kanila. Ngayon naman yung pen na nabubura. Ang hinahanap ko naman ngayon pero parang sa US lang available, yung pencil na after ilang minutes matutuyo siya into pen. Then I have that paper punch from Muji na pwede ikabit sa binder. This is what it looks like:

Then I want to go back to Fully Booked BHS kasi dun ko nakita sa lahat ng bookstores na napuntahan ko yung pencil case for the binder. May 3 ring siya so dun mo siya ikakabit sa binder instead of carrying a pencil case pa.

^Ay yang puncher, how much? I know I snub it in Muji thread pero parang gusto ko na niyan ah  :'( because I'm planning to make notes/reviewers on letter sized paper na rin inspired by this o : http://www.flickr.com/photos/yintungho/4478880250/in/set-72157622996502527/

Share ko lang ko from Flickr, multicolor Muji pens rin gamit http://www.flickr.com/photos/yintungho/3511825041/

Word cards lang "discovery" ko which all of you probably know already  :-[ http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/9172/wordcards.jpg I used it as word banks/vocab study for foreign language studies. Then nagtipid na naman ako that now I'm the one who's doing the cutting, punching and threading it with a ring fastener. Kaya lang after nun, parang wala na akong energy para magsulat.

Wala akong na-"discover" pa talaga, siguro besides the fact that I'm such a cheapskate, the primary reason is I only see the "functionality" of a certain item on the hindsight after I get to see someone use it. Yung sister ko who is in the same field as heatherette magaling rin sa mga "finds" na innovative and sa pag-organize (like she arranges thin pads of post-its in her scheduler/planner while I just stash them in my bag).

^I forgot na pero nasa P150 ata. Kahit mahal binili ko na kasi alam ko sa US lang meron nyan haha Nalimutan pa ilagay sa paperbag ko yan kaya binalikan ko pa talaga.

Yung word cards, I do mine in blank index cards. Ayun nga lang paguran kasi mag-punch ka pa ng holes. Naghahanap ako nung index card holder, wala ako makita sa mga bookstores.

I am practicing myself to write notes. Naghanap ako ng new way na mag-notes, hindi yung sulat lang ng sulat. I found Cornell Note Taking System. Grabe, sa sobrang tuwa ko, ginawa ko talaga yun pero di lang handwritten. I typed everything tapos tamang tama yung fillers ko which I got at Muji, walang lines so diretso print then kabit sa binder. Nakabili na rin ako kanina ng reinforcement rings. Hindi ko kasi alam saan ko nalapag yung collection ko ng reinforcement rings lol

Ang cute nga nung pens na yan. Mamaya nga dadaan na ko ng Muji para bumili ng bagong kung ano ano.

Weird pa tong room ko kasi I painted one section of my room in blackboard paint. So pwede ako magsulat dun ng important stuff na kelangan ko. Tapos instead na portrait yung nasa center ng room ko, nilagyan ko ng white board para magsulat din dun nung mga kelangan ko matandaan for school.

OT: Ang ganda nung handwriting nung may Muji pens haha Nakaka-inspire mag-handwritten notes. Naalala ko tuloy during an exam, yung prof huminto sa harap ko tapos natakot naman ako baka isipin na nangongopya ako. Biglang sabi ng "Ang ganda ng handwriting mo. Papasa ka na sa Bar"

Natawa mga classmates ko haha

^ hehe oo nga, they will not bother to read if illegible ang handwriting

Wee you are also using Cornell, I've been using it this year lang but tinanggal ko na yung lower box for summary sa baba (kasi nasusulat ko lang dun "good luck"), siguro applicable yun for first revision per chapter of the book. I'm using 3 columns for first revision and the more traditional 2 columns for 2nd revision. Hindi rin handwritten, nafrufrustrate ako kapag may erasure. Besides, schizo ang handwriting ko.

Sugurin ko nga yang puncher na yan bukas. (After googling, *ahhh, reinforcement ring pala tawag dun*  ;D)

Yung blackboard ganyan din yung room ng guy protagonist sa 500 days of Summer. Cool.

^Weee!!! Ako recently ko lang na-discovered si Cornell haha So far so good. Wala rin ako masulat sa summary box kaya lectures or very important notes nalang from the prof ang nilalagay ko.

^ Went there too kanina lang around 5:30 to 6, already bought na :P ayan na BI mo ako sa office supply, matatag ako sa make-up e. Madami pa nga stocks, and baka you are one of the very few na alam kung para saan yun because for me it looks like a plastic bookmark than a puncher. I have to ask the SA kung nasaan although I am suspecting na yun na nga yung "plastic bookmark" but I was still in denial. It's P285 and maliit lang pala sa personal kaya I can't believe na yun na yun as I toss and turn it, di ko makita yung "puncher" mismo. Nakita ako nung SA looking displaced siguro kaya kinuha yung sample to explain na natatakpan pala ng flaps yung puncher. *ahh, puncher nga*

Yung stubby click pens naman gusto ko but hanap muna ako ng alternative. Ang cute nga ng hex pens nila, parang candy yung colors.

Aiden, wala pang chronotebook. Baka kasabay darating ng 2011 planners.

^LOL! Andun ako ng mga 6-630. Yung puncher na yan, kaya ko siya nalaman na puncher siya kasi ang hilig ko manuod sa YT ng What's in my school bag video. Lahat ata ng students sa US may ganun kasi required sila to have a puncher in their binders. Nung nakita ko sa Muji, para akong baliw sa tuwa.

Nalimutan ko balikan yung yellow na click pen :P Yung black lang kasi nadampot ko. Babalikan ko rin yung hexagon na pens na yun. Ang ganda talaga sumulat.

naku, ang dami ko ding mga abubots! Medyo bawas na yung highlighters ko. From 15 pcs, down to 7 na lang. Shempre kasi yung back up ko kailangan din ng back up, hehe. Pati every size na ng Post-its. Literal nappraning ako pag nawawala ang aking beloved pink scissors! I used to have 2 5-tiered drawers para lang sa supplies ko. Pero now that i'm trying to downsize the clutter in my room, kinailangan ko i-share to everyone in our house yung mga hoards ko, hehe!

Now i know I'm not the only one who enjoys "office supplies porn", haha!

^^ hehe kaya I'm also looking for ways how to organize them kasi it is only then you can get to appreciate and utilize them effectively

^ yung sayo porn material e, it is better kasi it is "real" (i.e. you are from here and the products are undiscovered but accessible). Na-intriga nga ako dun sa pencil case for the binder.

Anyway, eto pa, in case not been searched. I do not like sweets, but this store is like a candy shop to me. *Drool*

http://www.flickr.com/photos/bettybl/2128374293/

Sana lang merong ganyan dito, I also like how it is organized. Parang even after a break-up, an office supply geek will surely feel better.

Hope I also get to post "real" pics next time.

since i'm a teacher, mas lalong nareinforce ang pagiging addict ko sa school/office supplies lalo na sa notebooks and pens. meron akong isang lalagyan na puro notebooks lang na walang sulat. tapos pag nasa fully booked or powerbooks ako, mas lalong tumatagal time ko kasi tumitingin pa ko ng notebooks. ang dami kong notebooks sa bag ko, different sizes. this coming xmas break, i'm planning to organize my stuff. na-inspire ako sa organizer ni sis Heatherette. lol. :D
