It’s football season people! Are you a football fan? And I don’t mean a “football” fan, I mean a FOOTBALL fan. A rabid fan, the guy (or girl) who paints their face team colors, and flies the team flag from those little obnoxious car flag poles.Then you need a Team Brute garbage can from Rubbermaid….

The New Kid

Once upon a time, in an office much like your own, there was a new kid in town. At first, he didn’t realize there was something different that set him apart from the others, but they knew. Where they were metal and box-like, with a white glossy sheen, he was round and smoke-colored. When towels…

GoJo – Not Just for Mechanics Anymore

I remember growing up, my father always had the orange, gritty GoJo in his construction trailer. And at home on the sink, for that matter. Although he was a general contractor and not a mechanic, he learned from his mechanic friends how well the stuff worked, and it really did get the grime off. My mother loved…

Rugged, Reliable Rubbermaid Receptacles

See what I did there? For anyone that reads this blog, it’s apparent that I don’t do things normally. Well, normal for the average home owner. I pick up tips and ideas from businesses and incorporate them into our home. My Rubbermaid kitchen storage is straight out of the restaurant kitchen. My husband is a…

Picnic on Earth Day!

Monday is Earth Day, a day to raise social consciousness about our lovely and bountiful home planet. I could go into the politics about Earth Day, but I really don’t want to ruin anyone’s day. I’m not the best environmentally conscious person out there, but I do try to be cognizant of my and my…

Clean Bathroom = Happy Customer

Every minute of the day that your local business’ bathroom is not clean is another chance to give a local, longtime customer the bad experience that will prevent him from coming back. Normally there is no way to tell whether you have lost customers on account of a dirty bathroom. In the same way that…

The Products That Help Heal

Close to a year ago (or maybe over a year ago now), we brought on a new line – medical supplies. We started with the basics, but now we’ve grown the line so much, that a doctor’s office can almost fully stock itself just with our medical supply line! We do have bandages and ice…

Fun and Funky

I like to showcase cool desk decorations and office supplies; even if it’s something we don’t carry, because part of enjoying your work is being able to decorate your home away from home. One of my favorite things to use is magnets! You get funny, witty sayings that bring a smile to your face. I…

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…

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!…

It’s Flu Season! Be Prepared!

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 folks,…
