First and foremost I’ll like to confess being a stationery hoarder. Therefore my idea of must have items might seem unnecessary to some. I decided to keep the essentials at 3 in order to keep the list short and to the point.
In my opinion having a presentable mouse pad is a must. Not to mention owning a customized one for yourself. I for instance have several to choose from depending on the season, occasion or my mood. At the moment Erin Condren Mouse Pads are my favorite. They cost anywhere from $10-$12, and by using this LINK you can save $10 on your first order.
Another staple to have for decorating purposes is anything in gold, rose gold, bronze or platinum. Since I do need a hole puncher I chose one in a beautiful gold color. Kate Spade, Target and even Michael’s have a wide variety of stationery items to chose from. This particular hole puncher is from Michael’s and can be bought with a 50% off coupon.
Finally a set of worthy pens is an essential. I personally recommend trying out different single pens before committing to purchasing a set. So that you don’t end up with 100+ pens like myself!
Generally speaking the essentials I shared today are useful to anyone. A student, assistant or even a house wife can benefit from owning any of the 3.
