The first product on my list for organization was binders. I received a 1" AVERY-DENNISON Economy Round Ring Binders. They are very durable and they are the perfect size for my paperwork that I use as a reference when I blog. Plus, I love the colors!
175 sheet capacity
11 in x 8 1/2 in
I also have a Suede Finish Vinyl Round Ring Binder to use for my finances. I like that it has pockets because I like to keep the bills that are due in there and then once they are paid, I hole punch it and put it in the fasteners.
175 sheet capacity
I'm using TOC 12-month Dividers in my binders to make things easier. I love how you can use them in landscape or portrait. So far, they have been a big help because I have information on books that don't even come out until November and it's great to be able to look in the binder and get right to the paper I need.

I get so much mail on a daily basis and now I have the Side Load Letter Desk Tray perfect place to store it until I can put it where it goes. I use the top one for products and press releases for Readaholic and I use the bottom for It's My Life. It saves me a lot of time. They are a little flimsy but other than that they are a nice addition to the top of my desk.
holds letter paper
The Manual Lightweight Letter Opener with Steel Blade is awesome! I use it for letters and even for big boxes that I get in the mail. It goes right through paper and tape, even packing tape.
The CANON USA LS-100TS Compact Desktop calculator has come in handy with work and on my bills. It's a basic one so I don't have to worry about switching a function or anything. I like that the numbers are bigger. My husband has a calculator and the numbers are so small that I can't even use it. My hand always hits buttons that are beside it. This one is big enough to see but not so big that it looks weird.
4 1/8w x 5 1/4 d
Comes with battery
You have to have batteries if you are going to have an X-ACTO Compact Desktop Battery-Operated Pencil Sharpener. I'm partial to Duracell because in my experience, they last a lot longer than other batteries.
4 AA batteries
Even though I usually write in pen I decided to go ahead and get some Blackstonian Pencils. I used to hate using pencils because the tips would always break off and the erasers wouldn't work right. These pencils are great though. I haven't had any issues with the tips breaking and the erasers work like a dream.
12 No. 2 pencils for $.89
The Universal Products Paper Clips have come in handy for papers that I don't want to mess up by stapling them. I like to clip all of my paperwork for hair products together and makeup products together, etc. These paperclips work great.
I finally have a stapler. A Swingline Durable Full Strip Desk Stapler that can staple up to 20 sheets. I put this to the test and it really did work, so I'm happy with my little burgundy stapler.
