TOPS products from Shoplet.com review (and a giveaway)

Shoplet.com has once again sent me some wonderful things to review and share with you all! As I've mentioned before, they carry a wide variety of Office Supplies. Today its all about writing. I'm big on writing and taking notes on a regular basis. Whether its for blogging, my stories, or the everyday work and class notes - having a note pad around is an absolute must.
Shoplet sent me the TOPS focus notes note taking system (TOP77103) in both large and small size. They both come in 50 sheets. The small one is 5" x 8" and the large one is 8.5" x 11.75". The smaller one can easily fit into a medium sized purse. They are both for serious note takers. Date in the upper right corner, with Purpose underneath. Then the page is broken up into three sections: Notes, Cue Column, and Summary. Notes are in the main section. Write things you need to remember like you would normally. To the left there is the Cue Column where you can write questions or concerns you would like to bring up later concerning the things you are hearing in your class or meeting. This way you have everything at a glance and your questions won't get mixed up with your actual notes like they would on regular note paper. Or you could write reminders, key terms, and dates mentioned in the notes. At the bottom of the page is a Summary section. write a quick and concise review of everything above. This might be the most important things you take away from the whole lecture or the main ideas. I absolutely love the details! I'm detail-oriented and my notes take up page after page when I'm in a meeting or class. I want to remember every last little part since I strive so hard to do my best at everything. (Sounds cliche and stuck up, but what can I say?)
That's not all I got though. Shoplet sent a couple other goodies to share about. These others are the Idea Creative journals (TOP56874). form + function = inspiration. That's really what it does boil down to. They sent two sizes of this product as well. The small one is 192 acid-free pages in 5 1/2" x 3 1/2" size. It a stretchy band to keep it closed when its not in use. This is perfectly able to fit in a small purse and take on the go. In the back of this on is a yellow envelope for holding things like coupons or little pictures. I plan to use this as my shopping/work note book. The larger size (TOP56879)comes in a two pack bundle, each with 96 acid-free pages measuring 10" x 7 1/2". Great for writing! I love to write stories and poems in notebooks. And I go through one so quickly that I often do buy more than one at a time. This saves me time and money in the long run. Plus it ensures that I won't have to pause for long in between my ramblings. So go check them out! These were sent to me as promotional products to inform you all of just another cool thing they offer. And tell me what you think about them. I love reading everyone's comments!
And now for the fun part! I've decided to host a giveaway. Not from any company but straight from me! It's going to be just like any other giveaway. Except this time, after choosing a random winner I will get their information and ship the following prize directly from my home to theirs. The prize includes: TOPS focus notes note taking system (the smaller size) and a little goodie bag with Bath and Body Works Sweet Sinnamon Pumpkin 3 ounce body lotion, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin scented 1.3 ounce candle, and a Caramel Apple PocketBac anti-bacterial hand gel! See the picture below and get your entries in! Good luck everyone!!!

    1. You are very welcome! It's my hope that I write in such a way that everyone can make an informed decision before purchasing something they may not want or need. I have a few others on their way!

  5. I love the reviews.... I'm always looking at new products to try & buy but I stick with more of the main stream stuff... Though reading your reviews have caused me to find different brands just from the reviews.

    & I also need a new notepad... I just filled up my last one

    1. Awesome! I have to admit, some things I will stick to the main stream. Lately though, I have a desire to try things that will make a better life for my family and I. The Journey Bars for instance, I still like getting when I can and even my mom starting buying them after I shared some with her.

  6. I love words/reviews by a texas nerd, because I too am a Texas nerd who has relocated! I find most of the things that you blog and review helpful because usually they are things that I would consider blogging or reviewing myself! Thanks for the hard work! I am an avid list maker, and prefer lists that have several sections to them! I like a list where I can write out my to-do's, a section to the side for other notes, and a place to check them off as they have been completed. It was a sad day when I filled out the last page of my previous notebook that had all of those things! I am happy to see this product, because even if I don't win, I'll definately be placing an order :)

    1. That's amazing! Some of the things I have reviewed I actually did hear about from other media outlets. A lot of them were things that I'd seen on other reviews but they didn't have a lot of information about the product so I decided to review it myself. Sometimes I see something that I like so I check for many other companies to compare them with. Try letting them know where you heard about it. Sometimes companies want to hear things like that to know that they made a good decision on sending out the product to the blogger to begin with. 8-)
