I cannot guarantee any of those will stimulate you to work harder but I know you will feel joyful if you surround your desk with cute and whimsical office supplies.
Be Kind to the Earth
Grass Roots is a good source. I found a mini blue box that fits in the palm of your hand and recycled binders there.
Did you know that you could repurpose the ring metals affixed with two screws and t-nuts instead of putting them in the trashcan when the corrugated cardboard binders are too worn?
Besides the FILEX folders, the Task clips are pretty cool. You can get the Utility Clips (Do, File, Send, Read), the Timing Clips (Now, Tomorrow, This Week, Someday), and the Importance Task Clips (Urgent, Important, Can Wait, Trivial).
Give a future business owner the Decision Kit to get her or him started in the new role. Cavanelli puts in tin boxes two office essentials: paper clips and mini clothespins. Use the clothespins to display photos, postcards or brochures along a string.
