I’m starting a new job and since we’re working from home for the foreseeable future, I’ve done a lot of reorganizing and setting up a home office in my dining room. My space is small, so this presented a bit of a challenge. In searching for storage solutions, I definitely fed the real cookie monster by virtual window shopping. It was during this search that I came across some small business great finds that could blow that first paycheck before I even receive it!
I want to start off in a clean, well organized environment, so of course that means that some things needed to be donated, while others needed to be stored. I didn’t want to just toss a bunch of items in a storage container without a way to label them, but labeling the outside of a box doesn’t exactly give you an inventory of what’s actually in there. Enter my first great find, Outlinx Smart Stickers. These handy little stickers use QR Codes that create a digital inventory you can access on your phone. No more searching through your storage containers to find that holiday platter and more importantly, no more purchasing labels that have to be replaced over and over as the contents may change. There are so many uses for this product; you just have to check it out!
Do you find that you go through a lot of sticky notes at work? I know I use a lot of them to keep frequently called phone numbers handy or special information that I need for a short time and they’re great for to do lists or office supply shopping lists. Over time, they lose their stickiness and I end up taping them to the bottom of my monitor or I lose them altogether. So, to solve this problem, I’m thinking that a reusable sticky note might be just the thing I need. mcSquares Stickies – dry erase sticky notes seem to be a really great option. They come in a variety of sizes, stick to almost any smooth surface and can be reused over and over. Plus, mcSquares will plant a tree for every pack sold, you’ll be doing your part to help save the environment! How’s that for a win-win?
No office would be complete without a calendar and mcSquares has a solution for that too! mcSquares Stickies Dry-Erase Bright Calendar is also reusable, and the included Tackie Marker erases with water so you won’t accidentally erase anything if you need to move it to another location. As a lefty, this is really helpful too – because I won’t be erasing as I’m writing!
Each of the mcSquare products comes with a Tackie Marker, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t include them in my list of small business great finds. There are a variety of colors, chisel tip and fine and magnetic, so I can add color to my notes too!
I’m sure I’ll need a notebook for training and I think the Rekonect Magnetic Notebook would be perfect. As I mentioned, I’m a lefty, so notebooks are a pain for me to use. With the magnetic spine though, I can take a blank page out – write what I need to and put it back in the notebook. And because the pages can be removed, I can move them around and reorganize them as needed. I absolutely love this!
Now that I’ve shared all these small business great finds, I should probably get back to setting up my home office. All of the products mentioned here can be found on Amazon Launchpad, a section dedicated to helping new entrepreneurs and start ups succeed on Amazon.
