Teacher Gadgets: Tab Punch from We R Memory Keepers

Finally got my We R Memory Keepers tab punch in the mail today! It was a REALLY difficult find.*

The last week I was in Toronto for the summer, I drove to Michael’s and Staples. I called Scholar’s Choice and the lady on the phone had nooooo idea what I was talking about! While I have not taken up scrapbooking, I wanted this tab punch so that I could be able to flip through my interactive notebook easily.

Eventually, after reaching out to other Ontario teachers online, someone pointed me to Class Act, a shop in Oshawa. The owner helped me set up the order, gave me an estimate and mailed it to me in the north.

I love it! It’s so easily to use! It’s fabulous and perfect for my INBs! The punch itself cost $21 and the stickers are $6/12 pieces. Pretty pricey, which reminds me of labelmakers; the gadget is affordable but the refills are expensive! Normally, I wouldn’t justify spending this much for a mere tab on the side of a notebook, but after two full years of hard work – mind you, after already burning out from teaching once – I felt I deserve a little reward.

Plus staying organized should be fashionable!
