Officially,unofficial Kick!

Although the first day of summer is still a few weeks away there’s an undeniable change in the climate that confirms:  Winter has finally passed, spring has sprung and gone- now things are heating up. 

Keeping Germ Free In The Office

FedEx recently conducted a study where they began putting sanitizer stations in their office as a test to see if less employees came down sick. The results were an absenteeism decrease. The study concluded that Purell hand sanitizer decreased the spread of germs in the office as well as reduced the amount of sick days employees…

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 Incredible Can of Canned Air

Canned air has become an office staple for cleaning your keyboard, dusting your CPU tower, and blowing all the dust bunnies off your desk. You’d be hard-pressed to find an IT department that doesn’t have a case or two lying around, and if they tell you they don’t have any then they’re lying to you….

Back to School Shopping Starts Now!

When you see the back to school displays in the stores, you know that summer is half way over. Or you realize that retailers are an overzealous lot. Stores are filled with big yellow displays full of pencils, pens, pads, protractors, small refrigerators and computers. Almost anything in a store can be considered a back-to-school…

Cinco de Mayo!

Planning a party for Cinco de Mayo? What a better place to get your party supplies! No matter what type of party you’re planning, we got the goods for you! Wine glasses, margarita glasses, plates, servers…we got it all, and probably stuff you didn’t think you needed. I’m not a “big” party planner, meaning I…

The Art of Silverware

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – I love art work that uses unusual mediums. Not just art work either, but repurposed items too. Give me a tin coffee can and the best I can do is nail it to some driftwood and call it a planter, so people who can turn flatware into…

Don’t Be a Dull Person!

We all know how to finish that sentence. Even though its been around a long time, most of us equate it with a smirking Jack Nicholson with crazy eyes, and frankly that’s not a look I’m going for. Its been proven that a little bit of “play” during the work day makes for a more…

Spring has Sprung (finally)!!

Ah, spring. Days of warming, and nights of mildness, with flowers and trees starting to bud. No doubt about it, Spring is a beautiful season! Seedlings are being planted in the north, and down here in the south, they are being transplanted into the outdoors, reading to spread cheer to all. I love gardens and…

Pen Addicts Unite!

Ah, pens.  Nothing in the office supply world quite engenders a heated debate like pens. People are serious about them, okay? And don’t get me wrong, I’m not condemning. I have been in more debates about the merits of Papermate versus Pilot than you can shake a stick at! I love my pens. I have favorites. I get angry…
