  • A new job, a new office: which supplies should I get? What am I missing?

    I am setting up a new office at a new job. It lookes like I will have 3 main work spaces: one office in a university, one office in a hospital, and my home office. Both work offices are brand new. Home office needs major restructuring. I was thinking of making an exactly identical system in all 3 offices. It will include

    Desk, filing cabinets, computer connected to printer.

    An inbox with 2 levels:
    1. Inbox
    2. Planner (calendar, contacts, daily food tracking checklist)

    A labeler.
    A billboard; on it: the workflow chart.

    4 drawers:
    1. Tickler file drawer: 31 days, 12 months = 43 folders;
    2. Alphabetical filing for all things (administrative, personal, project support material)
    3. Alphabetical filing for articles drawer (I use a lot of reference research articles to read)
    4. Drawer for extra clothes, office and technical supplies and snacks.

    In drawer 4:
    1. Tylenol for headaches
    2. Toothbrush and toothpaste
    3. Extra clean files foldesrfor easy grabbing and use
    4. Extra pens, pencils, eraser, sharpener, ruler, notepads.

    Post-it notes.
    A small writing pad.
    A large writing pad.

    A cup for:
    1 pencil,
    1 pen,
    1 eraser,
    1 pencil sharpener,
    1 ruler.
    paperclips.
    stapler.

    What else?
    Thank you!

      I like to have an Outbox (or, in your situation, more than one) for stuff that needs to move from one site to another -- from University to Home, for example.



      Cheers,
      Roger

          Kelly, why is it so frustrating to get a free article? I have wasted one hour inputting redundant info and still no joy this ordering process is steering me away from your site.

            I know, I'm sorry that our free article system is not as easy as it could be. The marketing team is working on fixing that.

            I've attached it here for you instead.
