Back to School with Storage.It

As August speeds along, and Labour day weekend looms not that far in the distance (yes, that's right, I said it - but you can choose to pretend that summer's gonna last forever - but it's really not, at least not if you're in Canada), and I might have mentioned that the end of the summer brings with it a need to stock up on shiny new things for Fall - a fresh beginning of sorts.  Well, for me anyway!

So over the course of the week, we're going to have a series of 1-day specials to celebrate Back to School 2010.  (We'll admit that they might not all that practical for your little students - but hey, big students and non-students love Back to School stuff too - even when there's no actual schooling involved!)  So watch this space, our Twitter (@Omiyage_ca) or our Facebook page for daily specials throughout the week.

Anyway, we thought we'd start with a product that is cute and clever! notebooks from Mark's Inc are essentially a notebook and pencil case in one.  Of course, they don't have to be just a pencil case! Depending on the size you choose, you could carry your cell phone, keys, bus schedule, spoon, granola bar ...

The cover of the notebooks is a large plastic pocket which zips closed.  The inside of the cover features an extra storage flap, card slots (2 in the small A6 notebook, 3 in the large A5 notebook) and a pen loop.  The included lined notebook is replaceable - which extends the life of your indefinitely.
