The New Year is already in full swing, and unless you have the tools to keep you organized, you're bound to miss something important.
Shoplet.com, is a company that I've been working with for a few years now, that sells office supplies online. They recently sent me a few business products to check out for 2014.
House Of Doolittle Two-Color Monthly Desk Pad Calendar
The first item is a 2014 Calendar for your desk or table that is quite large and easy to glance at to plan out your entire month's worth of activities.
I put this little (well, big) guy on my computer desk, and it's a great way to quickly jot down appointments and notes - and if you have a more detailed note to write, there is an entire vertical "notes" section on the right of the calendar.
One of the silly little features I appreciate are the black tabs on the bottom corners of the calendar, that you tuck the ends of the calendar down into, which prevent them from getting all "flippy" and worn out looking. Hey, it's the little things that make big differences.
Be sure to look up Shoplet.com if you're looking for other types of Office Stationary in 2014, as I've shopped around and honestly they have AMAZING prices on most of their inventory!
House Of Doolittle Weekly Business Planner
The second item, also from House of Doolittle was a Weekly Business Planner. This planner gives you lots of space for more detailed appointments for each day of the week, rather than the larger, monthly, at-a-glance sort of calendar.
There's a great section at the end of each week for expenses, and has columns for each day, broken down into categories of expense, such as:
- Misc...and more
A family or mother could really use this weekly expense record next to their week of activities to facilitate budgeting, just as easily as a business person would need to keep track of their company expenses.
One thing I didn't like is that there wasn't a monthly calendar layout at the beginning of each new month in this Business Planner. I'm a fan of being able to visualize the entire month's appointments, in addition to the weekly layout.
In addition to 2014 Business Planners and Calendars, remember when you're in the market for some Promotional Products for your company, blog or hey even a family reunion (think "Grayson Family" mugs or Funny Logo Promotional Shirts - Shoplet.com has a really nice quality and selection of items to personalize.
Thanks Shoplet and House of Doolittle for the opportunity to check out your 2014 office supplies to keep me on track!
