Lately I have been trying to accomplish two things at work: prioritising, and stopping people from taking my office supplies. Because of where my office is, people tend to just grab things quickly and then I have no paperclips, elastics, and thumbtacks. Henceforth, I set out to find things that people would recognise as mine!
Priority List Notepad, Marshalls
This was $4 at Marshalls, and totally worth it! I like that it isn’t a straight list, and has the high/medium/low options. Also, because there are limited spots I am forced to take a good look at my workflow and really prioritise. I would buy another one in a heartbeat!
Bow Paperclips, Marshalls
These were also a steal at $3 for 9 (as opposed to the Kate Spade version that are $10 for 12…) from Marshalls! They are fairly large (close to 2 inches) and hold a fair amount of papers. People know these are mine; all are still with me. VICTORY.
Bow Wall Pins, Michaels
Michaels seems to have a new section of “ready to give gifts”, most of it stationary (with some mugs and make up cases). I saw these and figured that they would also stand out as mine! I like that the bow gives me a good amount of pin to grab, and the pin itself is deep. Michaels for the win! (My apologies for the glare 😦 )
Do you have any particular stationary items that you use at work?
