Once again, Teacher Appreciation Week is upon us. This is the time of year to think about your teacher (or your child’s teacher) and be thankful that teaching is their job and not yours. This year, you can do better than simply buying a gift card. A rockstar teacher would appreciate something nice for the teacher’s desk, or maybe a nice rockstar keychain. Here are the best rockstar desk organization supplies out there:
Of course, many of us would rather just give a gift card and be done with it. There is nothing wrong with that. Teachers will appreciate you making the effort, they certainly expect that from their students!
Everyone is looking to control their clutter. I’ve heard there are extreme minimalists that don’t have this problem, but I don’t know any. (I would think that for an minimalist the clutter problem would actually be worse, but anyway). In the spirit of controlling clutter and finding new, fun, and different ways to keep the clutter monster under control, my latest organization-crush is lunchboxes.
Lunch boxes. Not just for lunch anymore (but still useful for lunch too).
A lunch box is the right size and shape to fit on a shelf, tabletop, or inside a drawer to keep small things together and neat and tidy. Some places you may not have thought of using a lunchbox to keep small things:
Makeup table: I like a lunchbox inside the drawer of a makeup table for lipstick, makeup sponges, or other small tools.
Bedside table: for small things that collect on the bedside table like eyeglasses, keys, coins, etc.
Desk: for sticky notes, pens, paperclips, etc.
Hobby/craft area: for various small things
Music studio: for guitar picks, extra packs of guitar strings, cables, etc.
Since lunchboxes can close, they keep all these small things out of sight. This is also an opportunity to have some fun with the lunchbox design and show off more of your personality than a plain desk organizer.
Then sometimes, you really need a lunchbox just to hold your lunch. This one looks like a Marshall amp head:
