I'm one of those people who believes that having special pens and the perfect notebook makes me more productive. Having matchy-matchy things on my desk keeps it feeling uncluttered.
That is why I am working on filling up my So Not Niche shop on Zazzle with a variety of office sets...to help you find your new favorite accessories and kill it as a work-at-home creative!
Today I have a new office supply collection to share with you!
The other day while was outside working at one of my lame gardening attempts, I snapped a picture of the sky with one of our soon-to-be-gone trees silhouetted to one side.
When I played with it later in PicMonkey, I liked it so much I thought it would make a pretty nice set of elegant, matching office supplies. I'm probably biased here since I took the photo, but really, I do think it turned out pretty.
Using Your Office Supplies to Motivate You When Working From Home
But matching or themed office supplies are one of those simple, affordable tricks that help me feel more productive, so I feel they might help you too.
It is hard to focus on work if your space is cluttery or feels disorganized. Even if your office is super tidy, a million different colors, textures, and patterns can make it seem cluttered after awhile.
Having just 2 or 3 things that "go together" in amidst all that other stuff can really help get you psyched up to work. It just feels official, you know?
One of my favorite tricks is to keep a few items on my desk and inspiration wall that are the same colors as my blog.
If you are having problems getting motivated to work on your blog, I really suggest trying this color psychology trick. You can use anything, pens, mugs, notepads, a candle...
Your brain just learns to connect those colors to "work", (and then it associates work with income, and remembers how well it likes shopping...because that is how brains function.)
Don't Work Harder, Work Prettier!
Work is a lot more fun when life is prettified!
So, don't disappoint your brain. Find a few items around your office that go with your website or business colors (or patterns) and place them in view while you work.
And then head to my Zazzle shop and check out my growing collection of unique office supply sets, created just for busy, one-of-a-kind entrepreneurs like yourself!
