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 officesupplygroup.org and browse through their big catalog. You won’t miss anything.
