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!
