It's my second month with a planner subscription, which is ironic because I have nothing to plan in my planner! Lockdown is going well for me.

The Pen Pouch for this month came in Mauve.

Cotton Candy Gel Pen (Grey) ($2.50) - This is a 0.5mm black pen so I threw it in with husband's pens for work as he prefers the thinner pens and this one wrote so well!

Kaco PURE Soft Touch (Leaf Green) ($2.50) - Ooh I kept this one. It's also 0.5mm but it's such a pretty pen and it's a nice pop in my planner that I refused to give it away.

Smart Gel Ink Pen (Blue) (Unknown) - I don't typically use blue ink in my planner I do use it at work so this went in my work bag. This is 0.7mm.

Color Free Ink Roller (Royal Purple) (Unknown) - This is tiny at 0.38mm, the smallest tip I've personally ever used. I love the shade of purple that this is and it's nice and fine for my smaller activity tracker.

SHANDS Color Gel (Baby Pink) ($2.50) - I went back and forth on this, but I ended up giving this to my mom. I love how it wrote and would love other shades of this, but it reminded me of my mom so much that I had to let her have it. This is 0.5mm.

This bag was valued at $7.50 plus the two other pens. I'm starting to understand the subscription and that this is more about curation than value, and you're getting pens that are more difficult to find. I have fallen in love with the idea of this and will continue for some time. Plus, this is keeping me from wanting to buy too many other pens!

As always, let me know what you thought of this bag in the comments below!
