OE Staff Shares Their Favorite School Supplies

The new school year is just around the corner … time for pencils, notebooks, scissors, rulers, and other school supplies. We thought it would be fun to share a handful of our staff’s favorite office and school supplies. What’s great is that ALL of the supplies they mentioned are available through our catalogs and online store!

  • One item I can’t live without is my Bic® Wite Out Correction Pen. It dries smoothly so there are no lumps, and helps me keep my documents and planner neat. I keep pens in my desk and bag, so I have one available whenever it’s needed!
  • I recently bought a high heel shoe tape dispenser. It’s stylish, fun, and really functional. It represents my girly side and my daughter laughs every time we use it. Who would have thought that a tape dispenser would be so entertaining?
  • Hands down, the greatest office supply ever created is the envelope moistener. You never have to taste that nasty envelope glue again! Whether you’re paying a couple bills or sending out hundreds of holiday cards, I highly recommend you spend a few dollars to add one to your supply cabinet.
  • As a parent, there are so many school supplies that I absolutely love! One of my favorite products is Crayola washable tempera paint. They have great color choices and it’s awesome for color mixing. Here’s a tip for some painting fun … mix tempera paint with liquid starch to create your own finger paint!
