Ink Drop Soup: Sanity Arsenal

All that glitters is not gold; all that is awesome in pendom need not cost arms and legs

It’s easy to gradually, incrementally get caught up in pen-envy until next thing you know, you’re dropping Grants and even Benjamins (or whatever colloquialisms are used for your currency) on fine writing utensils. Just wanted to pause and give a shout-out to the fact that there are still tons of fantastic products that don’t require budget-breaking behavior; all products pictured here cost me less than $5 per item (except the notebook they’re all resting on, which cost $5.99 plus tax).

For me, ideas/creativity seem to flow better out of common markmakers than the high dollar ones!

There’s just not as much pressure, I feel like. High dollar stuff makes it feel like there’s all these expectations. With cheap stuff, you’re less inhibited, you play around, and that’s when some of the best stuff gets made.
