Review: Office Supplies from CSN

I am seriously a HUGE fan of CSN Stores. They have everything! When I received an email telling me that I could review their products, I was really happy. I decided to stock up on office supplies. Working from home is great and I had been wanting to set up a system with the right tools. Now I have them!

If you ask me, organization is key.  Before receiving the following products, I felt frazzled.  I did have a system but it was a lot harder to keep track of everything.  Here are some of the items I received.  (If you would like to see more, go here.)

The Rolodex Mesh Pencil Cup Organzer with 4 Compartments is the perfect home for my pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, paper clips and post-it notes.  Everything has it's own little place which makes working a lot easier.  I really like the mesh design, it looks really good on my desk.

The Pentel R.S.V.P. BallPoint Pens are my favorite pens! I received a pack with assorted colors and now every time I go to write something, I feel like a kid who just got new school supplies.  I love the way my handwriting looks. 

Colors: black, blue, green, orange, pink, red, sky blue, violet
Visible Ink Supply
Latex-Free Comfort Zone

Sharpie Accent Liquid Pen Style Highlighters are amazing! I received an assorted pack of these as well and I use different colors to represent different stages my reviews are in. I love them!

Colors: berry, blue, coral, fluorescent green, fluorescent orange, Fluorescent Pink, Fluorescent Yellow, Indigo, Purple, Red

10 pens for $11.99

I prefer red pens when I'm making corrections, so I asked for Paper Mate Stick Ballpoint Pens in red.  I'm glad I did because I have gone through a lot of paperwork trying to get myself more organized and these pens came in handy.  The ink smeared a few times and it there were times I had to go over some of my writing but other than that, they're good pens.

The BIC Mark-it Retractable Permanent Markers in assorted colors write perfectly to label my binders and file folders.  These markers are wonderful because they write neatly thanks to the micro chisel tip. 

Colors: black, blue, green, red

4 for $2.69

I'm using Universal Manila File Folders to organize my papers from the past.  Each month I pull out what I don't need any longer and put the important papers into their designated folder.  They're thick so they don't rip easily.  I like that the bottom can be expanded.  I'm really glad I got them.

I also received some Envirotec Colored Hanging File Folders in assorted colors so that I could color code my blog paperwork and important documents. They are so pretty!  They are also 100% recycled which makes me happy. 

Colors: evergreen, imperial gold, royal blue, ruby red and warm violet
Tab Cut: 1/5
Letter Size


I had to have printer paper, so I picked out 500 sheets of my favorite Hewlett Packard Multipurpose Copy/Laser/Inkjet Paper.  It works like a dream.  The ink comes out perfectly whether I'm printing a black and white coupon or a picture of my nephew.  I've actually printed a few pictures of him on this paper and put it in a frame.  You can't tell that it's not photo paper.

Disclosure: I received these products free of charge in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% mine.
