As a kid, I was always excited for back-to-school season, as it typically meant getting all new stuff. As an adult, I pride myself on having cultivated a collection of supplies that only need replenishing, not replacing. Some of these items are used more frequently than others, but they all work together harmoniously and keep me prepared for nearly any office related task.
The bullet points are the generic versions of the items I own, and if you are looking for a complete office supply checklist, I hope you look no further. The photos link to blog posts on each of the actual items that I own and use - with personal notes and links to purchase the items.
If you know of something better that I should be using, please let me know.
