One good thing that has come from dealing with COVID is working on my office and scouting out home office decor finds. I’ve been working from home now for three years but never did a proper clean out and organization but I have no excuses now and all the time in the world. Sigh…
I’ve found so many great potential decor items for my office on Amazon I thought I’d share some finds today just in time for tax-free weekend. Plus I get a little sad every time I see all the school supplies at Kroger since both my teenagers are doing online high school and college (!) from home. I miss shopping for school supplies!
A great basket or bin
We don’t have much closet space in our older home so I am always looking for great bins and baskets. This rope basket is a nice neutral for magazines, throws, etc.
Reed diffuser or candle
I’m starting to use candles less and less and opting for “cleaner” ways to make our house smell nice. I have this reed diffuser and love it. It has a strong sugary/tropical scent and lasts a long time. Capri Blue also has an absolutely amazing candle that is pricey but worth it as a special splurge.
I have a smaller version of this bamboo desk organizer minus the tiny drawers (cute), but these are great for adding extra storage space. My l-shaped desk doesn’t have drawers.
Leather desk blotter
Right now I’m using a natural wood and black metal desk we’ve had for years. It’s pretty minimalistic and still works great so I’m keeping it! However, the surface is getting worn. These leather desk blotters are great for protecting your desk and they look nice. They also serve as a mouse pad.
A witty to do list
I love making old school, handwritten lists. This Productive AF notepad is awesome.
A snazzy stapler
You know how you need a stapler and can never find one when you actually do? I am pretty old school sometimes when it comes to brands, and Swingline has been around forever. I love this gold stapler! It’s also currently half price – it’s so cute I would actually enjoy stapling!
I have an old school four-drawer filing cabinet but I do keep a few key folders in a bin. Speaking of old school, the usual file folders are pretty utilitarian but you can find some really fun ones! I also love these gold and leopard file folders.
Pretty paper storage
I have some of my girls’ more recent school papers in a magazine style storage box like this but mine is not this pretty!
The prettiest tape dispenser ever
Again, if you’re going to have office supplies why not have cute ones? Love this pretty floral tape dispenser.
A fun vase or planter
I love to have flowers or a small plant in my office and Amazon has tons of fun planters ranging from whimsical to minimalistic. I love this small vase!
I also literally just had this side table arrive today. Love it! And my 15-year-old daughter was able to assemble it very easily. I don’t want a full coffee table in my office but wanted a small laptop table for the sofa area.
