First-Aid Kit Basics

I have a confession to make: I am prone to accidents. Not like car accidents, or other indelicate accidents nor am I clumsy. I just have…accidents, because I rush all the time. This means I have a lot of bruises and cuts and scrapes, and keep a ready supply of band aids at hand. I…

Office Supply Nostalgia

Today’s offices are so efficient that most of them don’t even use paper anymore. Everything is digital, and some are even moving away from CD’s and moving to online cloud storage to communicate with other businesses and clients. USB flash drives have become so inexpensive that they are now the portable storage of choice. Who…

And Now for Something Unusual

It’s no secret we at ReStockIt love office supplies – we work for an office supply company! Binder, file folders, pens, organizers, printers…we love it all. We love to personalize our desks too, with toys and figurines and funny posters or magnets. Sometimes though, we have to break from the ReStockIt inventory and find funky…

Who’s Calling Please?

I love phones. It’s one of those collectible things, I guess, but I love them. I hate answering them, and I am not one of those people that could talk for hours on a phone, but still, I love them. I was going to do a retro office supply blog today, and I will still…

The (Power) Cords That Bind

We are living in a digital age, that’s no secret. Computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming systems…all around us are digital products that keep us connected. And have lots of power cords. Power cords are essential (obviously) and you need a place to plug them in. Unless you’ve built your home to include an insane amount of electrical outlets,…

Top Five Teacher Essentials for the Classroom

Even though it’s a school holiday today, I thought that I would talk about the top five things that a teacher might need in their classroom, besides the mental strength to deal with children of all ages. Especially nowadays, teachers have to supply a lot of their own classroom materials, and that can get pricey….

Five Packaging Supplies Essential to Building a Fort

When we were kids, Saturday mornings were fort days. We turned the living room sofa into our own personal fortress, complete with a bulwark and moat. The cushions of the sofa and the sofa itself were the walls, the loose pillows the bulwark, and a blue table cloth the moat. We fought imaginary invaders, from…

Correction Fluid Do-Overs

With the invention of Liquid Paper in the 50’s (originally called Mistake Out), we have been correcting our typing and writing mistakes with alacrity, and thanking Bette Nesmith Graham (Liquid Paper’s inventor) for her bad typing skills and inventiveness. Granted, with our technology today, correction fluid use is becoming obsolete, but I still use it…

The Humble Dinner Napkin

Today will be a brief departure from the norm, and will be mostly pictorial. I wanted to have a little fun with a basic staple of dining tables everywhere – the humble dinner napkin. The beauty of the dinner napkin is that it is so versatile when it comes to being twisted, folded, and mutilated…

2013 Flu Season is Upon Us

It’s been a bad flu season so far, and some experts think that it will only get worse in 2013. By the end of 2011, only 849 flu cases had been reported, but that number increased exponentially this year to 22,048 cases! That is a LOT of sneezing, coughing, and body aches across the country!…

May I Borrow That?

There is nothing more exasperating than to reach for your stapler and find that it has grown legs and walked right off your desk. Or your tape dispenser. Or your hidden stash of sticky notes, which were obviously not as well hidden as you thought. Or, holy nightmare, your favorite pen is gone! I’ve compiled…
