It’s no secret that I’m a pretty big fan of office supplies. I’m actually a really big fan. I’ve been known to spend hours walking up and down the office supply aisle, where I’d marvel at everything from the pens to the notebooks to — yes! — the crayons. The colors. The shiny packaging. Needless to say, the whole experience was quite an intoxicating one for me.
And don’t even get me started on back-to-school shopping; even though I’ve been out of school for more years than I care to admit, I still find myself battling the crowds every August in a mad rush to snatch up colorful pens and pencils to replenish my stock. When I worked as a college newspaper adviser, my favorite part of the year was organizing my office for the coming semester, so you can imagine my excitement when Vistaprint asked if I’d like to do a round-up of my favorite office supplies. The online hub is a one-stop shop that lets you personalize everything from magnets to mugs to iPhone cases. Seeing all the good deals on Vistaprint products got me thinking about what I’d include in my dream office kit. Here are six of my top picks…
Pens with a personalized touch, starting at $3.74.
Stress balls for a little rest and relaxation, $44.99 for a set of 24.
Notebooks for all those massive to-do lists, starting at $7.49.
Note cards for writing sweet little notes, 10 for $5.99.
A unique mug for a morning cup of coffee — or, in my case, a morning kick of Diet Coke, $10.49.
And a polo shirt, for obvious reasons, starting at $19.99.
What about you, friends? What would you include in your Ultimate Office Supplies Kit? Pens? Lots of notepads? I’d love to hear!
