With back to school just a few weeks away, its time to gather all the supplies my daughters need and get organized for a another year. A desk organizer is a must-have to keep my middle school daughter’s frequently used items easily accessible during homework time. We also need to purchase all the typical back to school items like pens, pencils, notebooks, and binders however this year we are going to purchase a specific brand of pens that is our new favorite!


Pilot G2 Premium Retractable Gel Ink Rolling Ball Pens make writing a breeze as they glide across the paper seamlessly. It’s no wonder the G2 is the #1 selling pen brand in America with all of its amazing features. The fine point and gel ink smoothly transfers onto paper and doesn’t smudge. Another huge benefit is the comfort grip so you can write for long periods of time at ease. If it’s your norm to go above and beyond or if you are an overachiever in everything you do, this is the perfect pen for you! One more stand out quality that we love about these pens is how long they last. Pilot G2 has been proven to be the #1 longest writing gel ink pen compared to average gel ink brands. No more episodes of having a pen run out of ink when you are in the middle of note taking or writing an important paper!
