Get Reddit.

When I first started out it seemed like every question I had was answered in reddit. I love these groups and they are a valuable resource.

My Set-Up

These are the products I currently use and why. There are links below and they are linked only so you can find them easily. I do not receive any commission from them.

iPad 11″ Pro: I love my 11″. The size fits nicely everywhere, however my daughter has the 12.9″ and I love that too. It feels just like a regular sized notebook.

Apple Pencil 2: I tried other pencils before getting the Apple Pencil because I didn’t want to spend the money, but in the end nothing worked as beautifully as the Apple Pencil. (in my opinion)

*2020-2021* Supershieldz Anti-Glare Matte Screen Protector: 2 or 3 packs starting at $8.00+

Supershieldz on Amazon

Again, I didn’t want to spend over $30 for 1 protector so I did a bunch of research and I love this brand! We all have them on all our iPads. They go on easy. It’s been over a year and still works perfect and also does not wear down the pencil tip (also been using for over a year.)

*May 2021* Paperlike Screen Protector – 2 pack for $39.99

Paperlike Website

I was curious (despite the steep price) since so many people recommend Paperlike and I am quite impressed. The protector goes on so easily- just make sure to watch the video they provide. I didn’t think my writing could get any better since I loved my other protector so much, but it has! I have only had this for a couple of weeks, so I will update this as time goes by.

Pencil Grip: Amazon $9.99

Pzoz on Amazon

I had tried a couple others prior to this one, but the other grips were too thick and they suppressed the magnet. This grip is the best! It does go on hard, but just go slow and have patience.
