I went out for my annual end-of-the-year shopping spree today. Sometime at the end of December, I like purchase all new office supplies< for the next year. So out go my old calendars, date books, and anything else with “2007” printed on it, and incomes new 2008 stuff. I bought a desk blotter/calendar for my computer area, refills for my appointment book, several packages of fresh pens, a box of envelopes, and new file folders for my 2008 paperwork and receipts. I already have a 2008 Outer Banks wall calendar that someone brought back for me as a souvenir from their vacation, so I’ll be looking at beautiful scenes of lighthouses and boats all year long. In addition, I recently restocked my supply of staples, paperclips, rubberbands, and inkjet printer cartridges, so I didn’t need to buy any of those things today. I now feel completely organized and prepared to take on the new year!
