How To: Make the Most Of Your Office Supplies

How To: Make the Most Of Your Office Supplies
January 31, 2008 Alison Faulkner

Or! How to beautify your cubicle with no more than what the supply room has to offer!

I’ve made myself a little friend out of your two standard sizes of paper clips! Finally, someone to laugh at my jokes!

A breakfast treat identified: blue post-it note, tape and sharpie.

A menagerie of woodland animals made from leftover muffin boxes and my favorite Pilot Precise V5 pen. (Extra Fine)

Not only a fun way to give your stapler a voice, this leftover scrap of paper secured with tape also serves as warning to the type of coworker who would dare to steal your stuff!

And most importantly, post-its can also be used to express your true feelings. This will really give you a sense of self in your cube.

I hope this has inspired you to beautify your space! Please feel free to share your suggestions or comments.

Well I guess I’m…back to work? Ha!

    Helloooo, Alison. Perhaps you should come visit my cube and help me fashion some recycled woodland creatures for my booth. Hoops & Yoyo need more friends.

    you might be able to make a profession of this. revamping offices with what they have in the storage room. i think we are onto something here…
