Pen Log

Yesterday I bought a package of Papermate Profile pens. I really like them because they seem to fit in my hand perfectly. Plus when writing on lined paper (which I prefer) they write very smoothly with very little (in my opinion) drag on the paper.

But as I sat at my computer last night, I found myself wondering how long it takes me to completely use a pen. There are a few that I really like, that I tend to use up rather quickly though I do not think I USE them that often. This got me thinking that if I kept a register then I would know.

But then how would I remember which black Papermate Profile was bought when? I remedied that by putting the date of purchase directly on the pen bodies, being careful not to cover up any of the identifying marks (such as the brand or type).

Pretty will I be able to stick to it? We shall see, but if nothing else I will be able to see how long a pen has been in my possession which will still be pretty neat to know. =)

Do you have a favorite pen? And if so, tell me about it?


  1. Brilliant idea! Thanks for becoming a follower on my blog by the way. I really appreciate it ^_~

  2. I thought it was a neat idea! I will be adding a few more pens to that log tonight. =)
