Happy Halloween!!

Today is a day that we put extensive planning into at ReStockIt. We have a committee and three Halloween-mad employees who delight in the ghoulish, the macabre, and the downright creepy. We don’t just throw a party either; we have activities planned for at least three days prior to the actual day. We have costumes…

Storm Aftermath

When a terrible storm has blown through your area, whether it’s a hurricane, tornadic cell, or a blizzard, not only do you need to be prepared for the time while the storm rages, but also the aftermath. I’ve blogged before about storm preparedness, but what about storm aftermath? Once the danger of the storm has…

Light the Way

Wednesday is Halloween, a night for fun and candy. Little ghouls and ghosties, along with their (hopefully costumed) parents will dominate the streets in neighborhoods across the country. Except for the trick or treater’s going to malls, then this blog doesn’t apply. Safety is the name of the game, even with visions of Jolly Rancher’s dancing in…

Horror Movie Survival Tips

You know how, when you’re watching a horror movie, you turn into an armchair survival quarterback? You know what I mean, even if you don’t know the term armchair quarterback. “What are you, stupid? DON’T GO INTO THE BASEMENT!!!” and “For the love of God, WHY would she go into the woods!?!” and the currently…

Clorox and the Cleaning Soldiers

There’s nothing in the world that smells as fine as white clothes pulled fresh from the dryer. More than colors, whites smell like…sunshine. The detergent, softener, and most importantly the bleach all combine to make the clothes smell heavenly. I never mind washing the white clothes. Clorox is more than just bleach, however wonderful said…

Trivia Wednesday – Candy!

Americans eat a lot of candy. A LOT. Not as much as Denmark, but we consume about 25 pounds PER PERSON every year. Even over cakes and cookies and other confections, candy is ranked number one in how we get our sweet tooth to shut up when it cries out for something sweet. Chocolate is…

Avery Binders and Reviews Gone Wild

I love Amazon.com. The site is one of my favorite places to shop (besides us!) and I get great deals on everything I’m looking for. Also, you just can’t beat the “sample” choice in the Kindle store, which has contributed to the 40 samples I currently have to slog through on my Kindle app. The…

Achhoo! Flu Season is Upon Us!

They are sounds we’re all familiar with this time of year- snuffling, sneezing  coughing…and we all run in the opposite direction from where the sounds are emanating. That is definitely not something that you want to be around, and you find that you’re donning rubber gloves just to hand paperwork to your afflicted co-workers. That’s right…

Top Ten Movie Monsters

Top Ten Movie Monsters It’s Friday (TGIF!) in October, which means that it’s Freaky Friday! Every Friday in October, I will bring you something ghoulish and disturbing for your reading pleasure. Today’s blog is about monsters. Yes, monsters, the top ten (according to ReStockIt anyway) to be precise. Although there are a lot of worthy…

Cubicle Decorating

When I left the world of big box retailing and moved into e-commerce, I found myself with cubicles of bare fabric. Not drab gray, but still, nothing exciting. I was used to having activity and sounds and windows, so the transition was a bit…shocking. I wanted to hang pictures and calendars, but I didn’t really want to…

Horror Movie Trivia Time!

In keeping with our spooky Wednesday trivia theme, today’s topic is horror movie trivia! I know not everyone enjoys the feeling of being curled up in a dark room with a pillow to hide your eyes and a scary movie on the television, but its one of my favorite things to do! Especially if its…

You want your business to be as professional and “put together” as possible, especially when you’re handing out business cards, or shipping product, or even mailings. You could go…
