When I'm not working as Editor-in-Chief at Feather, I work in an office and getting supplies delivered is one of the highlights of my work days.
I think my obsession comes from my love of organizing. When I was a student, I was always looking for a better way to organize my class notes and handouts. As an editor, I'm always looking for new ways to keep our staff organized. At my job, I spend my free time looking for better ways to manage with our filing system so it's easier to find things.
While I'm sure most of you find office supplies dull, who says they have to look boring? Sure, I have to deal with the standard black metal stapler and silver paper clips at work, but when I'm at home it's a completely different work area.
I love to use bold, bright office supplies in my home desk area. If I'm spending hours at my computer drafting emails and writing articles, I should at least be able to write notes on my cute desk cards or staple printed documents with my pink stapler.
If you think office supplies are just the most boring thing in the universe, these bold items are a great way to get a little joy from those mundane organizational tasks.
