You may not know this about me, but I'm a bit of an organization freak. You also would not know that looking at my house, but I have a very specific order to my chaos. One of the things I really like are labels, but I get bored of the same thing after a while. If you've ever tried to peel up a sticker label you know my pain. And most washable markers are anything but, as any parent can tell you. I was recently given the opportunity to try out some chalk markers, and they have filled a void that has long plagued me.
For those who have never heard of a chalk marker, it is basically liquid chalk in a felt tip pen format. You can use them pretty much anything that is non-porous, and they wipe away with just a damp cloth. The set I received is from Kitchen Supreme (available here for $23.84 with free Prime Shipping), and came with 10 different brightly colored markers and come fun chalk board stickers that I'm saving for when I replace my kitchen canisters next year. All of my markers are nice and opaque, so very different from your standard felt tip pens. Each pen came with a dual ended felt tip, so you can either have a chisel tip (my personal favorite), or a standard round tip. There were even a few extra ones included, which was much appreciated.
As you've probably notices, I only have 9 pens featured in my pictures. My bright pink pen has been absconded with by my son, who has hidden it somewhere in my house. These are great for practicing letters and numbers since they clean up so easily, so much better than regular markers or even sticks of chalk that get powder everywhere. If you have a little one I really recommend these for writing practice, the larger size of the pens also makes it easier for small hands to hold.
I've been using these to label things like my makeup storage containers and to leave myself notes on my mirrors or bedroom windows, but I see these as being something I use all the time. I may even bring them to work with me one day and redo our information board so it looks really nice. I really like these and I'm so glad I received them. If you are ever in the market for chalk markers or a new way to label things, give these a try. They are affordable, effective, and really fun.
