You’re running to a meeting at your AZ office space with a fresh cup of coffee in your hand. Whoops, your power walk had a little too much power and some coffee splashed up on your shirt. And, come to think of it, coffee breath isn’t the best way to greet your client. Wait … did you remember to put on deodorant today?
On top of keeping up with your workload, it can be difficult knowing what items you should have at your “desk arsenal.” Don’t worry, we’re here to help. We have a list of the essentials you should keep at your desk at your Arizona commercial office.
Nothing can dampen a one-on-one client meeting like onion-, garlic-, or coffee-breath. Since there is no nice way to say “your breath stinks,” you have to take matters into your own hands. Keep floss, a toothbrush and toothpaste, and mints or gum at your desk to ward off bad breath.
Cold and Flu Season
When those bugs start to make their way around your Arizona commercial office, you’re going to thank yourself when you have hand sanitizer at your desk. When you’re sick or dealing with pesky allergies, it’s important to have a box of tissues handy so you can kindly sneeze into a tissue — your coworkers will be thankful.
Keep an extra phone charger at your desk. You should also have a pair of earbuds, especially if you’re in an open-plan office.
In addition to items to keep your breath minty, you should keep some additional toiletry items. Deodorant will come in handy on those crazy mornings you forget to put some on or need to freshen up. A bottle of lotion is a must in an Arizona commercial office to fight dry skin.
Keep Your Outfit Pristine
A stain removal pen can save you in a pinch. If you have a pet, make sure you have a lint roller at your desk.
Save Your Bland Lunch
When the office kitchen is all out of forks, again, it’s important to have some extra set of utensils handy at your desk. Plus, keep your favorite condiment, like hot sauce, mustard, or salad dressing to liven up your lunch.
Help I Have Blisters
When those new shoes aren’t as comfortable to wear all day as you thought they would be, you’ll be thankful to have a box of blister bandages at your desk. Plus, you should have a pair of comfortable shoes to slip on after a client meeting or for walking a few blocks to get lunch.
Odds and Ends
Keep a sweater, sweatshirt, or a blanket when the office gets too cold for your liking.
A pain reducer, like Tylenol, can help when you feel a headache creeping in.
Save some energy-inducing snacks in your desk to help you get over a mid-day slump.
A compact umbrella can save you on your walk to your car during the Phoenix monsoon season.
It’s easy to get dehydrated at your Arizona commercial office space, so it’s important to have a refillable water bottle to drink from throughout the day.
