Tips for Organizing Your Home Office

As we gear up for the holidays, now is a great time to stock up on office supplies.  Many office supply stores are offering major discounts on some much needed office supplies such as paper, desk accessories, printers, computers, etc.  

1.  Pens, pens, pens.  Stack pens and pencils upright in an old coffee mug.  Be sure it's a mug you don't plan on drinking from as ink and lead may accumulate in the bottom of the mug.  I love this clear mug because I can see my fave pens at a glance.

2.  Stop making paper clip chains and make use of some of those fallen magnets from your fridge or pick up a few magnets at your local dollar store.  Check out this pack of smiley face magnets which retails for a whopping 97 cents.  

3.  Keep commonly used files close.  I love these vertical file organizers because I can see those files I use commonly at a glance.  Place those files you use most often in the front.  

4.  Use a desktop organizer with pockets like this Artistic Executive Desk Pad Organizer with Storage.  This organizer features a cover that lifts so you can fill it up with office essentials like pens, paper clips, staples, etc. The cover can be closed to keep your desktop neat and tidy.

5.  Accordion files are great for organizing multiple items.  For example, use an accordion file to organize client contacts and emails or even monthly invoices.  I keep a alphabetical accordion file and labels on hand to store correspondence from contacts. 

Shoplet.com is a great place to shop for items to help you organize your home office.  Be sure to visit them at www.shoplet.com.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
