5 Office Supplies You Should Have

Think about the office supplies you use every day. You might do a good job of ordering sticky notes, staples, and pens, but what are some other office products that you might forget? Here are a few things you might miss, but should have in your office.

A Physical Calendar

Even if you use your phone as your primary planner, it’s a good idea to have a physical calendar at your desk. Desk Pad calendars or wall calendars will allow you to see everything right away.

Portable First Aid Kit

Whether it’s a paper cut, or an injury that’s a bit more severe, be prepared. Look for a kit that contains at least bandages, antiseptic wipes, and gauze pads.

Labels & Labelmakers

Have you looked for other supplies and have no idea where they can be found? Consider labeling different drawers and cabinets in your office and breakroom so employees can quickly find what they need.


They’re not just for hanging papers on a bulletin board. They can also be used to create great decorations for your desk, and much more. Check out this post from Lifeaspire to get a few ideas on creative uses for pushpins.

Cable Clips

Your desk probably has lots of wires around it from your phone, computer, and other devices. If you find that your workstation is a mess, you can pick up some of these to tidy up the appearance of your workstation.
