I’ll be starting a new role in my company soon, same account and location just a different suite. I’m in the process of moving and thought what better time to share my office necessities with y’all than now.
Multi-colored writing utensils – No, I’m not just referring to black, blue and red pens. I live a colorful life and my writing utensils should match. My desk caddy is overflowing with so many colored Sharpies, hi-lighters and regular ink pens.
Two monitors – I didn’t realize how much I needed this until I worked from home. Oh my gosh, those things are a life saver! It makes things that much easier to do my job when I can have my inbox on one screen and our accounting system on another.
Sanitizer – Working in such close quarters with other people means that illnesses spread like a wildfire. I have a few co-workers who have younger kids so if something’s going around at their child’s daycare there’s a chance that it’ll spread to the office. The easiest way to prevent that is to keep hand sanitizer at the desk and use it constantly.

Reusable mug – I have a monogrammed Yeti that stays filled with ice water, and a couple of reusable coffee mugs (travel and regular) at my desk. They’re cute, serve as a reminder to stay hydrated and it’s easier to walk around the campus with those than a Styrofoam cup. And it doesn’t hurt that using these reusable mugs is better for the environment.
Spotify – Or what ever music service you like. I can’t work in silence so Spotify is an office necessity to me.
Phone Charger – One of the perks about having an iPhone 5S for a work phone is that I’m able to leave a charger at work. Both my work and personal phone use the same type of charger and this helps when I need that little bit of juice for personal phone before heading out for a night on the town. Gotta keep it charged so I can tweet, ‘gram or snap my outings.
Supplies that matches my personality – A high-heeled tape dispenser, pink office caddy and business card holders, bright colored post-it notes and clip boards are just a few of the supplies that are on my desk.
It’s the little things that make me smile and make my day. What about y’all? What are some of your office necessities?
