Darn Cute Desk Accessories
The increase in small business owners means more people working from home and/or having home offices. Thus, I have been organizing a lot of home offices lately in my business and in doing so, have come across some pretty cute paper organizing products that my clients use. Also, I've had to search for some products for my clients who don't use such pretty stuff.
Thought I would share some…
The following are from www.SeeJaneWork.com
Pocket Strip Wall Organizer
Frog Tape Dispenser
Sickeningly Stylish Thomas Paul Pencil Cup
You would get ANY job, promotion, campaign or proposal if you walked into a meeting with your notes in one of these Veneer (yes, you read that right) File Folder!!!
You know your pile is too big and unsteady if a paper weight rolls off of it... so get a really cute one to encourage you to keep papers low to surfaces.
Adorable Paper Weights
The products below are from www.GreenerGrassDesign.com
Don't know how these Zoo/Pet rubber bands maintain their shapes, but they do. I have seen these even at Staples and Office Depot too, so look around for the best price.
Very clever little bookmarks.
These file folders have a quote from Robert DeNiro in the movie Taxi Driver--quite appropriate (and humorous)!
These made me smile too:
Also love Pylones. If you haven't seen their website (or their stores in NYC), their stuff is very colorful and whimsical.
A paper clip bird in the hand is worth...
Piranha Pencil Sharpener
Crafters will appreciate these Magnetic Scissors.
Do your own google search for original office supplies and make organizing your desk FUN!
