Unlike most highlighters with colors so bright you need to wear sunglasses just to look at them, the Uni Highlighter Propus Window Soft Color Set uses pastel colors that are bright enough to highlight important information but clear enough to see the highlighted words. The coolest part? These highlighters have two tips: a broad tip with a window perfect for highlighting long lines of text and a pen-like tip perfect for underlining and jotting down some notes. Highlighting with these will be like wielding a double bladed lightsaber. Get these awesome highlighters on Amazon here!


2. A post-it note that doubles as a divider? Um, yes please!

What’s even better is these tabs are large enough for you to scribble down some key points from each section.
