I was so excited when the UPS carrier brought my latest goodies from Shoplet.com. I always have a lot of fun reviewing their products and especially their office supplies. My home office is slowly but surely coming together and having the best supplies in it from Shoplet is just too cool for words. I’m envied when I receive anything from them to review because just about everyone I know these days has a home office. It’s really fun sharing new review supplies with friends and family. I just don’t know how I got to be so lucky to be a Shoplet reviewer *grins*.
For this review I received the following products;
- 1. Roaring Spring Landscape Format Writing Pad-College Ruled
- 2. Roaring Spring Elephant PooPoo Paper (yes you read that right)
- 3. Roaring Spring Landscape Format Writing Pad-Quad Ruled
- 4. Roaring Spring Wirebound Notebook-1 Subject
- 5. Roaring Spring Wirebound Notebook-3 Subjects
- 6. Roaring Spring Environotes Sugarcane Notebook
We are going to start with number two, elephant poo. Get it? HA I had to do it.
This product really is made from animal poo. Elephant recycled poo. These scratch pads come individually polywrapped and I’m not sure what I was expecting when I opened it but let me just say I’m happy they are odorless. The paper is nice and thick and just so unusual and unique. I’m all about recycling even if it is elephant poo poo lol. I’ve had a lot of fun writing on this paper. I was surprised at how smooth the paper is for writing on it because it appears to be really coarse when you glance at it. It’s a nice thick pad and will last me for a good while. The inscription on the front makes me smile every time I read it “BELIEVE in yourself” & I also love the cute designs on the front as well.
What I like about this? It’s unique and made from recycled “stuff”. Just think of all of the trees being saved by using elephant poo in it’s place. All of the grass being eaten by elephants that is not digested provides the fiber needed as the base material in making this paper.
What I don’t like about this? POOPOOPAPER™ takes the “oo” out of poo! There is nothing I don’t like about this.
The next thing I reviewed is a Roaring Spring Landscape Format Writing Pad-College Ruled.
The first thing I want to mention is that I love the nice wide landscape format on this recyclable writing pad. Its dimensions are 11″ x 9 1/2″ and it has 40 pages per pad. I also love that it is college ruled. If I’m going to write a lot of notes I want plenty of room to write them on. Abby has been doodling and drawing all over this pad today and it is her favorite because it gives her plenty of space to play. The writing pad hasn’t come apart at all even with Abby’s playing with it. The papers are glued nice and tight into the top spine. It’s white so it’s easily readable after taking notes. It fits nicely in my drawers although when I first saw it I was concerned that it wouldn’t. Now I know what sizes I can purchase in the future to stow away in my drawers.
What I like about this product? It has a nice width to it providing plenty of writing space. Another plus is that it’s made from recycled materials.
What I don’t like about this product? There is nothing I don’t like about this product.
Next up Roaring Spring Landscape Format Writing Pad – Quad Ruled.
This is another wide pad which is quad ruled. The dimensions are 11″ x 9 1/2″ and it has 40 sheets. Ruling: Quadrille 5 sq. It has horizontal and vertical lines evenly spaced on each page. The paper is white and the ruling color is blue which is very easy on the eyes. This is a great pad for making graphs. I used this product frequently in college and I had to stay stocked up on it. This can be used for handwriting and charting numbers as well. This is another product that is made from post consumer recyclable material. The paper is glued into the top spine and doesn’t fall out easily which is a plus in my book. I like things that hold well being as I’m as clumsy and uncoordinated.
What I like about this? It’s made from recycled content and the colors are pleasing to the eyes. Usually when there is a lot of print on paper it is hard on these eyes. Not so with this pad.
What I don’t like about this? I love it, just perfect.
The 4th thing I reviewed is a Roaring Spring Wirebound Notebook-1 Subject.
I’ve hidden this from the kids lol. I love this notebook. Wait… I’m IN love with this notebook. There, that’s more like it. It’s so cute and blue! I love the blue paper. When I have a lot of writing to do it will be a cheerful notebook to write in. This notebook comes in 4 different colors, blue, pink, green or purple. This is a quality made Genesis notebook. It’s a 1 subject notebook with 80 college ruled sheets 11×9. I love the nice durable vinyl cover, it can easily be washed off. The paper has a perforated edge for easy tearing, don’t you just hate tearing paper out of wirebound notebooks that don’t have a perforated edge? My second favorite thing about this notebook is that it has a pocket inside of it and on the back of the pocket is another pocket. I’m a note taker and I have notes stuck everywhere.
What I like about this? It’s so “bluetiful” and it’s made from post consumer recycled material. It has a pocket and it’s perforated. The wire is not thin and easily bent.
What I don’t like about this? There is nothing I don’t like about it, It’s my dream notebook.
What’s better than a “bluetiful” notebook? How about a blue, pink and purple notebook. YES! Three times the fun. Color me happy.
My vinyl cover is purpleicious on this 3 subject notebook. You must know if I hid my blue one from the kids I’d have to put this one under lock and key. Okay well that would be a bit dramatic but it is one of my hidden ones as well. Who could not want to write when they have such a cute assortment of colors to do it on? This notebook is basically the same as above and I don’t want to repeat myself so I will just point out the difference which would be the amount of paper. With the 3 subject notebook it comes with 150 college ruled sheets. Each subject is a different color. Basically everything else is the same as the 1 subject.
What I like about this? EVERY SINGLE THING WEEEEEEEEEE…
What I don’t like about this? There is absolutely nothing I don’t like about this. <3 <3 <3
I always feel sad when I get to the end of my reviews for Shoplet. I guess because they always send the best things and I have a blast reviewing them. I’m already looking forward to the next review lol.
Without further ado, let me tell you about the last but certainly not least product I reviewed. The most amazing thing about this product in my humble opinion is that it is produced from sustainable sugarcane fiber. I love anything that is made from recycled material but when it’s a unique recycled material I’m just completely spellbound. The paper in this pad feels so neat. I received a black cover pad with white paper. The cover comes in 4 different colors, black, blue, green and red. The dimensions are 9 1/2″ x 6″ college ruled with 80 sheets per pad.
What I love about this? It’s made from recycled materials. It’s lightweight. It’s a really great writing pad.
What I don’t like about it? The sheets do not have a perforated edge. I really love perforated edges and this one thing might ordinarily prevent me from buying it in the future if it weren’t for the fact that the paper just feels so neat when I’m writing on it. It’s so smooth and it really feels like silk when I’m writing. I don’t like the feel of some paper, it’s dry and harsh on my skin when I have to do a lot of writing. For that reason I would buy this in the future. In fact I would stand in line to buy this product in the future. And of course because it’s made from a really unique material.
I hope you enjoyed my reviews as much as I enjoyed reviewing the products. Please share which paper notebook you would most likely purchase!? If you are looking for note pads be sure to visit Shoplet.com to select the best colorful notebooks.
