I am a pen addict.  I love pens of all kinds.  Ball point, ink roller, glitter, fountain, colored, black, blue, fancy, cheap, and even markers, too.  Each year (okay, a few times each year), I buy a new set of multi-colored pens or Sharpie markers to color-code my calendars, lists, and my life.  My husband teases me, but accepts that he has an easy out anytime he needs a small gift to give me.

I was beyond excited when I recently found a multi-colored five pack of Sharpie markers at the local dollar store.  Sharpies are usually much pricier (because they are the best), so I snatched up two of the five-packs before they disappeared.  I’ve been using these new markers for a few weeks now, but I was really disappointed that they just didn’t work as well.

I went back and forth with my reasoning.  ”Well, I guess you get what you pay for,” I told myself.  ”These write like dollar store markers.”  But then I’d argue back to myself, “But they’re SHARPIES.  The company didn’t know they’d be sold at the dollar store.  So they should work just as well, right?”  Unfortunately, no one won the argument since both voices in my head are too stubborn to give in.

Save Money on Event Planning

Whether we like it or not, we will all at one point have to wear the event planning cap. Why is that? Because we are human, and along with our humanity come life celebrations: baby showers, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, funerals, and the list goes on and on. I'm sure that I don't…
