Do you think you know what you need for your office?

This blog post could be a lesson for many and a reminder for those who automatically assume they know all when it comes to setting up a new office for any business.

It was in the year 2000 when I set up my office for my mathematics-training center. As I said, I thought I new all about buying office supplies online and went about doing just that.

On the first day of my office, I spent nearly 4 hours (intermittently) on the telephone to order a myriad office supplies that included (don’t laugh at me):

  • a mini waste basket,
  • two shelves to store whiteboard marker pens,
  • business card holder,
  • a handy telephone book,
  • a box a rubber bands,
  • tags for tying up answer papers,
  • paper cups
  • a wall clock.

When I originally bought whiteboard and other paraphernalia of all the big office supplies, I prided myself at my efficiency.

When you next order office supplies online, you better visit and browse through their big catalog. You won’t miss anything.
