My home office space is always a space in which I spend a lot of time in and I’m always looking to add to it. Not because I’m not satisfied with it, but because I’m obsessed with stationary and all things office. I’ve added a few new pieces to my office space and wanted to write an updated post. You can check out my first post regarding my office space here. Although Home Goods and TJMaxx are my go to for everything when I’m in search for something new for this space, surprisingly they were not the stores in which I found my latest pieces. Here are the newest pieces, where I got them and links to similar ones for you add to your office space.

The first thing I bought to update my office space was a three shelf cart with wheels. I needed something to hold paperwork that couldn’t fit in the two drawers in my desk. The black color fits perfectly with the black legs of my desk, and the wheels are great for easy movement for when I want to clean or when I need to move my office space items around. I bought it at Aldi, that’s right ALDI. I had to put it together, but I managed to do it on my own, so it was really easy.
Next I added two magazine holders that my mom was given. She thought I could use them, and she was right. Although they were a dull green and beige and I needed to spruce them up to fit my office décor. In came gold, blue and green paint and some paint brushes that I had around my house. I painted them in gold first and streaked in the blue on one and green on the other. I wanted them to look a bit antique so I left streaks and used short brush strokes.
The next items I got were also from Aldi! On a separate trip I found an office kit that came with an accordion organizer, folders with four of each design, thumbtacks, paperclips, and binder clips all in the colors and designs of the folders. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I did an unboxing of this and got responses expressing surprise that I got all this in one kit and that I found it at Aldi! Yes I did!
Also new to my office space were a pen holder and trinket holder that I received as a Christmas gift. I believe it is meant for beauty products, but the colors go well with my office décor and they came in handy for holding pens and the paperclips, binder clips and thumbtacks that came in the office kit I bought from Aldi.
Also a gift for Christmas from my little cousins, was a phone stand and charging station, surprisingly also in gold, perfect for my office décor. I use this every time I do an IG story or live where I need to talk. It has been a very useful item, even though I didn’t know if I would use it when I got it. I have! So I thank my little cousins and my aunt for getting me such a useful gift.
The printer is also new in my office space. I got it for free, yes completely free! I am a part of the National Consumer Panel, and had racked up enough points to order it before Christmas of last year. I need to find a printer stand, preferably with extra storage. So that is one of the next things on my to-add list for my office space.
Moving on to my oil diffuser. When I was in Florida for Christmas I came down with a small cold. At one of my aunts house there was an oil diffusor in the bathroom, which my aunt insisted on me using as I took a hot shower. And it really did help! So when I got home I purchased a small oil diffuser from TJMaxx. My favorite oils to put in are Eucalyptus and Sandalwood, which I recently found at Hobby Lobby. For some reason I find it helpful to put my oil diffuser on when I’m writing towards a major deadline.
It is said that in small spaces you should use every inch wisely. With these four corkboards, I think I’m doing just that. They came two in a pack with self adhesive stickers at CVS. I use them to get paper work off my desk and to hold momentos.
Lastly, I just bought this keyboard rest a few weeks ago off Amazon. I looked in a few stores and it seems fashionable wrists rests are not sold or they are sold with a mouse pad. I need the wrists rest for the tendinitis in my arms, wrists and hands and I don’t need a mouse pad. The blue and white goes well with my chair and the rest of my décor. Here are similar ones as well.
