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…

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…

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…

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…

Back to Work!

For most of us, it’s the first full work week in 2013. A lot of companies and businesses were closed on the 1st, and maybe got out of work a little early on the 31st, or were completely lucky and had a full four-day weekend! Regardless, last week was a short, chopped-up week for a…

Office Gift Exchange Ideas

With the holidays in full swing, many offices are having gift exchanges and there is usually a monetary amount to adhere to, so what to buy? Especially if you don’t know who is going to get the gift! Why buy a bottle of wine when there is a chance that it’ll go to the office…

Calendar Time!

On desk calendars everywhere, there is a little notification on the last date block in November on the calendar, reminding you that it’s time to buy your calendars for next year. Nothing like a reminder that another year is over and a new one is just beginning. But New Year’s brings a new beginning, and…

Smead and Organizing Tips

It’s no secret that I love to organize. My desk at work, my desk at home, my drawers, my car…I’m just organized. Well, it’s more like I have an addiction to organizers and files…it’s sad, really. I’m always looking for better, smarter ways to organize. Then someone pointed out to me Smead’s website. And they…

Boredom is the mother of all invention

Albert Einstein once said that “Necessity is the mother of all invention” and I partially agree with him. MacGyver is a great example of that principle. Not many people are in the necessary situation to create a defibrillator out of some candlesticks, a microphone cord, and a rubber mat. I also believe, however, that boredom…
