Below is a list of five must-haves for your office – even if you are not a techie!

Must Haves Office

1. Digital smartpen:

Digital smartpens allow you to record audio and convert your writing into digital format to load on a computer.

Some pens even allow you to pick a point in your recording by selecting one of the words from your notes, which will automatically link you up with the exact spot in your recorded spoken conversation.

You can also transfer your audio to written word that can then be saved and/or emailed. Most digital smart pens can be used with either Mac or Windows. This is an amazing gadget, especially for someone who takes a lot of notes at meetings or presentations.

2. Portable all-in-one printer:

If you are someone who travels a lot and needs to print out documents, an all-in-one portable printer may be just the gadget you are looking for. Many of them are small enough to fit easily in a travel bag and offer batteries so that you don’t need to be plugged in to print.

Also, many printers that are wireless enabled, which allow you to connect with Wifi to the printer. Many printer manufacturers make apps for Android and iPhones, as well. Finally, you may want to look in to printers that can support cardstock, as well as photo or label paper.

Those that do support these, as well as regular 81/2 by 11 paper, should have a special setting, such as “cardstock,” or will have specific paper that is created just for that brand of printer.

3. Self-stirring mug:

What this gadget does is self-explanatory—it literally stirs your coffee with a motor that works at the press of a button.

There is a propeller at the bottom of the cup and when you press the button, the coffee – with its added cream and sweetener – is stirred.

Most of these mugs are also stainless steel, which is not only easy to clean, but it keeps your coffee warmer for longer.

4. Privacy filter:

The privacy filter keeps people from seeing what is on your screen – which can be a boon if you are traveling or have a lot of people in your office.

Many of them are angled, which allows you to see what’s on your screen, but not the person next to you.

Most are easy to attach and remove, making them portable – or you can adhere them to the monitor with adhesive strips.

The privacy filter also adds a layer of protection from dust and scrapes to your computer screen. Filters come in many sizes and will even fit Tablet and smartphone screens.

You can put the shredder in your pocket or in a purse or briefcase and it doesn’t use electricity so not only is it environmentally correct, but it simple to use.
