How To: Make the Most Of Your Office Supplies

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!
