I your day is off to an awesome start!
We talked on Thursday about How To Stay Productive even when you don’t feel like it. I told you about how I LOVED pretty office supplies! I also talked about how pretty & functional are a must for me! Even though my office space is still under construction (ugh) I still TRY to keep my desk clutter free and often use my office supplies to help me with that.
So with that being said I wanted to share a few of my favorites and where to purchase them at:
1. Desk Calendars
I Heart Pretty desk calendars! I always try to do a search close to the end of the year for the type of calendar I’m going to use for the upcoming year. I found this one by Ashlee Proffitt through her feed on Instagram. She has the cutest shop! Another reason for me choosing this calendar were the scriptures that she has placed on each month. So every day I’m reminded of the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness of His Word. That is enough right there to get you through any hard or unproductive day!
2. Pretty Pencils
I love pens as well as pencils, but I hate the way pen marks look on my paper if I happen to make a mistake. So whenever I’m out and about I may see some of these beauties and just grab what I can. Some of my favorite places to find cute pencils are the dollar spot at Target, ( they have the cutest things ! ), TJ Maxx ( I’m a Maxxi -Nista !) & HomeGoods. You may have to go diving sometimes, but I’m sure you’ll find some nice office pretties!
3. Journaling Cards
I love journaling cards, but not for what you would think! I keep them on my desk just to keep me motivated. I also keep them in my planner. I use them as dividers between the different sections of my planner. They are just so bright & pretty when I open up my planner! It makes me want to be productive & plan something!
They come with kind of cute sayings. My favorite brand is by Heidi Swapp. I may be partial, but I think her scrapbook supplies are THE BEST! They have a variety of colors and they’re pretty! I purchase all my supplies from Michaels. Plus you can use a 40% of coupon if they’re not already on sale. You just can’t beat that!
4. Storage Boxes
I Heart cute storage boxes! Now you don’t have to buy Kate Spade boxes unless you just want to. I have cute storage boxes that I’ve bought from HomeGoods & Target, but when I saw these boxes, I knew I HAD to have them. See, pink & orange are my two favorite colors in the whole wide world along with black, white & gold of course! At least that’s the way I justified it to my husband when he asked why I needed to spend $50 on boxes! MEN! Seriously, these are some of the most sturdiest boxes I have ever had. They are very well made and to me worth the money I spent for them! Oh & pay absolutely no attention to the card not pushed down inside the card holder on the pink box!
I Heart cute notebooks & notepads! They just make the everyday mundane list writing like something so special! This notebook comes from a set of three. Here are the other two:
I love the colors on these notebooks plus I got a pretty good deal on Amazon. I like notebooks & notepads with inspirational quotes on them. It gives me a little extra umph throughout the day!
So there you have it! These are just a few of the things I love to keep in my office. As I stated before, you don’t have to spend a ton of money for things to be beautiful in your space.
Get a few items that are unique to YOU & then you’ll be well on your way to making a inviting, creative & productive space just for you!
