Office or School Supplies – Get Organized

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… I’m sure you are all familiar with that great big box office supply store commercial with the parents gliding through the aisles while their children pout. It’s back to school time, and although many of us are not returning, it doesn’t mean we have to miss out on fun “school/office supplies.”

The thrill of new organizational material is unparalleled in my humble opinion. Sure, I get excited about a new top, but nothing compares to setting up my desk with a slew of shiny new pens or a pretty notebook (we all have our vices – don’t judge me too harshly). I’ve rounded up a few items that are sure to recharge your upcoming year and revamp your desktop.

1. This Semikolon Secretary Box looks great on a table top, but also does a great job of storing and organizing papers and small supplies. There have been times I didn’t have a drawer to store my things, and this sleek box beats the heck out of those little plastic drawer towers if you find yourself without space.

2. Who wouldn’t love this gorgeous gold and acrylic stapler? Sure you need function, but let’s get real – this is beauty and practicality!

3. Everyone needs a desk calendar. If you’re like me, you need a visual reminder of important dates. This Sugar Paper desk calendar is pretty, functional, and doesn’t take up a lot of space – a fun twist on the traditional wall calendar.

4. Keep all your important dates, events, reminders, and assignments together in this pretty Kate Spade agenda. I like the pen and paper approach to my personal planning because I am more likely to remember it (it’s a scientifically proven fact too).

5. Julep Cups are great for pen and pencil storage. These pretty cups do double duty as flower vases too, so why not pick up two to keep your desktop extra fancy!

6. Forget a signature scent. Try out a signature pen. Le Pen comes in a great variety of fun colors to give your notes that little something extra. I prefer writing in blue ink, and you’ll be hard pressed to find me writing in anything else.

7. Like making lists? Then you need a cheeky notepad for all your “Ridiculously Good Ideas.”

8. Every desk deserves a little bit of whimsy. Keep your writing and note taking fun with these Things We Love pencils.




Whether you’re a sticky note queen or slave to your spiral, there are office supplies for every personality. This is a great time to clean up the clutter, and commit to staying a little more organized this time around.
