Get Organized this Holiday Season with Staples + $25 gift card Giveaway!

It's been about 8 months since I started my new job. I have been so busy since I started that it has only been in the past few weeks that I started organizing my office to make it look like an office. Our facilities manager put up shelves for me and I started adding file cabinets as well.

It is starting to resemble a real office although it is more like a huge room with 2 desks and a conference table. The other desk is sometimes used by our interns. But at least my little corner of the office is starting to take shape.


Luckily, I am a fiend for office supplies and office accessories. If you saw my collection of sticky notes and pens, you would think I am crazy. I also love accessories and love having cool stuff on my desk.

I was thrilled to receive a new line of acrylic office tools to help me get more organized. The collection included a desk organizer, wall file, a letter tray and file holder. I had not even fully opened the box when my hubby snatched the file holder for our home office. He loved the blue color.


I took my other accessories to my office. My co-worker wanted my wall file holder because her area is tiny and she has nowhere to put stuff. I let her have it because why wouldn't I share the wealth? She needed it more than me.


I took the desk organizer and the acrylic file folder holder. The file holder works well on my makeshift credenza and it is now my new inbox. The desk organizer is a dream come true because it can hold all my pens, glue and giant markers and pens.

I love these new Staples desk accessories. I need to buy more. And I am putting them on my Christmas list!! If you need office accessories or are an office supply lover like me, then head over to Staples and check out this collection of supplies or any of the other collections and office supplies you can find at Staples. The prices range from $7.99 and up and are worth it!

You can like Staples on Facebook or follow on Twitter.

Because I love my readers, I am also giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky person! That way you can head over to Staples to get your own accessories. Just enter below.
