Being a college student is hard work and while I don’t mind hard work (I am a SAHM after all) I do detest on aspect of college—note taking! Aside from the obvious reasons for why I would dislike taking notes, I have carpal tunnel and that makes constant writing difficult and nearly impossible at times. Thankfully, I learned early on in my college career that you can highlight notes in your textbooks instead of taking notes (for most things anyway) and it has made my life so much easier! Since highlighters are such a necessity for college students I thought I’d take a second and introduce you to a NEW highlighter from one of my favorite companies—Sharpie!
“Here’s a back-to-school product worth highlighting. Sharpie is introducing the Sharpie Gel Highlighter—a unique entrée into the world of highlighting that promises to last long, resist smearing, and never dry out, even if left uncapped.
The new Sharpie Gel Highlighters are perfect for use on all paper surfaces, including glossy and thin papers as well as magazines. They also resist smearing on pen, marker and ink-jet printouts. A simple twist of the bottom advances the gel stick for long-lasting use.
Perfect for highlighting, writing, doodling and even drawing, the Sharpie Gel Highlighter is available wherever office products are sold. Suggested retail price for a 2-pack is $4.40. They are also available in Sharpie 3 and 4 pack marker sets for $6.59 and $8.79. Color selection include orange, yellow, pink, blue, and green.”

Since I use highlighters religiously for school I was more than happy to try the new Sharpie Gel Highlighters out and let y’all know what I think! I’ve used a lot of highlighters since starting college a few years ago and so far this is definitely my favorite! I love that they are gel! The gel makes highlighting easier and so much quicker than traditional highlighters because there is no smearing and no waiting for ink to dry—love that! I also love the fact that they don’t dry out, with 4 kiddos in the house who love to get ahold of all of my writing utensils it doesn’t usually take very long for my highlighters to disappear and once I find them they are always dried out…it’s awesome to know that these won’t dry out—even if my kiddos forget to cap them!
