In case you need a few life-saving tips to keep you organize and ready for the worst-case scenario in the office, we’ve got you covered with 8 things every working women should keep at her desk:
Nothing is worse than getting to work and your phone dies! Don’t be that girl asking your co-workers for a charger everyday. It’s likely that your phone is huge part of your job so always stay ready. To save yourself the headache and cash, always have a backup charger at your desk.
It happens to the best of us. You’re eating your lunch at your desk, multitasking different projects, and your food decides to splatter on your white blouse. You work near a mall or shopping center, so you go grab a blouse on your break–total waste of money. The easiest way to solve this inevitable mishap is to have some stain remover at your desk. There are even stain remover pens available now that won’t take up a ton of space, and work just as effectively.
Want to be the office hero? Keep some lady products stacked at your desk. If you’re in an office full of lady bosses, someone’s bound to need a feminine product when that time of the month sneaks up on you. It’s essential to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. Head to your local Target or Walmart and stock up on some products for your girl-caddy at the office.
Of course, we couldn’t leave snacks off the list. We all need snacks for extra fuel during those long work days. Some snacks that are great for keeping at your desks are pretzels, granola bars, nuts and water. You won’t regret having things to munch on throughout the day.
Work can be stressful and after work cocktails are a must at times. You never know what your work plans may bring. While most would tell you to keep a pair of flats at your desk, we’re telling you to keep both flats and heels available at all times. Could you imagine being sent off to an important meeting in your not-so-new pair of sneakers? On the other hand, maybe your super dressed up and want to go for a walk on your lunch break– that’s where those sneakers come in handy.
Just about every office is freezing all year round– go figure. Keeping a neutral sweater hanging on the back of your chair when you get chilly is a life-saver. We can’t tell you how many times, we’ve been in the office cold as ever, wishing a sweater could save our arms. Trust us, you’ll thank yourself later.
