I love office Supplies!

Mondays about Me!!

I know, I know, I'm a writer, of course I love office supplies!

Well, that's not exactly a secret - but I'm going to tell you about the office I absolutely have to have at my desk while writing!

Pencils! I love writing in pencil, even more than pen! I love sharpening wooden pencils to a perfect point and them writing with them until they are very dull! When I was younger I use to write with my pencils until they were so small I couldn't fit them in a normal pencil sharper anymore. I Always used up all of each pencil until I couldn't sharpen it, or until my teacher told me I had to throw it away and get a new pencil (which happened more often than the first)

Now, to be fair, I love Pens too! But I'm very particular about my pens! I love these ones:

That's right! I love colorful pens! And the kind that actually write smoothly is a huge plus!

These are essential for me! I have over 2 dozen of these little half size legal pads sitting around my house, office, bags/purses, and who knows where else. I use them for everything. To jot down quick notes or to write out full ideas before going to the computer and typing. I always have them with me.

Now, let me be clear about this next item. I have been corrected again and again .... I know some of you call these Post it notes, or sticky notes, but I have, and probably will always call them Stick-it Notes. So no need to try and correct me, I already know what the rest of the world things, but since I know I'm right, I try and refrain from correcting the rest of you  ;)

I use these all the time when writing. I like to print up a page and use the different colors to mark us dialog or action, words that I over use, or moments that I don't find believable. Then I can focus on them, one color at a time, and begin to clean up my writing.

These are used quite frequently, even though I have stick-it notes. I have been amazed at how often I reach for my 3x5 cards to separate ideas and research topics, addresses for prizes, and many other random things. You would think I could use either these or the stick-its, but I use both, very frequently!

I just love staples. I'll be honest, I have a blue stapler, and it has colorful staples inside! I love colors! But blue is my favorite and half my office supplies are blue, the other half are multi-colored so no other color can try to dominate the rest. They all know blue is the king!

And last, but certainly not least, I love these little suckers! I cannot believe how often I have to use them (and yes, when I'm not using them I have been know to clip them together into shapes, just like everyone else).

So there you have it, my must haves in my office. Is this all of them? Absolutely not! But they seem to be the most common used items in my office space so now you know a bit more about me and my weird little world ;)

Happy Monday!!


  1. Yes, all the items I love and use, too, but there is something about pencils over pens. Something about that eraser that frees me (is it psychological?) to write more, I really like the feel!

    1. It's true, there is something very enjoyable in writing in pencil. When I was younger I always wanted to write with pens because only adults got to do that. Now as an adult I love my pencils instead!
