FIRST JOB, NEW CAREER, REACH FOR THE STARS

I just got an SOS  text from my daughter- she was setting up her work desk in her new cubicle, in her career. Along with the thrill of the new job, she needed to quickly assemble a workable space where she didn’t have to search or borrow.

I never considered the necessary supplies one might need for a cubicle- it seems so automatic to me. Let me share the list I compiled, along with my new favorite pens. I must admit I have a weakness for particular writing instruments.

Here we go:

  • pens (My new favorite: pilot friXion erasable gel pen- get black, red and blue set. These Pilot Frixion Point gel pens are super- extra fine points are my go, too. Let them dry a bit after writing and they are erasable- too cool. Available at Staples and Amazon.)
  • pencil, small sharpener, eraser
  • highlighter
  • white out tape runner
  • paper- white ruled pads are good. just get letter size
  • pushpins/ thumbtacks
  • variety of bull clips
  • planner/calendar on wall, or desk
  • post its
  • scotch tape
  • scissors
  • ruler 12 inch is fine, just good to have a straight edge
  • rubber bands
  • paper clips
  • Sharpies, 1 black fine point, 1 black extra fine point
  • Adhesive file folder labels- to recycle/ reuse those once and done manilla files
  • P- touch labeler, some folks swear by it, if writing is illegible
  • pencil cup if you do not have a drawer to lock in

And with the mandatory file drawers, you will need:

  • file folders – look and see size in file cabinet letter or legal-get plain manilla ones-  will use many
  • command hooks for your cubicle, depends upon wall material
  • pendaflex to hang your file folders
  • small white board to hang, markers, eraser
  • desk sorter

FOR YOUR LIFE, FOR YOUR FAMILY, FOR YOUR HOME, BOTH INSIDE & OUT, LET’S GO!
