Hi, It has been a while since we had a thread like this... Thought with back to school time it would be great to bring it back up. Friday I completely reorganized my desk. Everything is neat and tidy (for about a minute :lol: ). I put all my office supplies in containers, with labels. You should see it, it is beautiful! (says the ocd part of me ) By doing this, I finally have a drawer available for "personal items". So.... what is a necessity in your desk? Can be for you, or for the kids. Here is what I have -paper clips -velcro -o-rings -butterfly clips -magnetic clips -other various clips (small clothes pins etc) -magnet tape -note pads -stickers -Sharpies (regular & fine tip) -vis a vis pens -rubber bands -staples (for all three, regular, heavy duty, and staple gun) -3 hole punch -brads -my pens -tape (masking, mailing, and scotch) -ruler -nail clippers -homework passes -index cards -page markers -post its -erasers -zip ties -correction tape (this is a must!) -highlighters -stamps for the kids papers I am planning on buying: -tide to go pen (lifesaver!!!) -advil -feminine supplies -cheapo calculator -safety pins -various snacks for me Sooooo... anything to add to the list?
