5 Work Must Haves

I was off this weekend, so it automatically was a great weekend. We spent time with family and friends and house hunted, it was pretty much awesome. Oh, and since I was off, I figured I would let you know what it is that I can not be without while I'm at work (or at home, if we're being serious!) I usually carry a bag with me that has my lunch and a few other things that I might need, but these five things are items that if I didn't have, I would feel totally and completely lost without.

Blue Sky Planner
I love my planner. It not only organizes just about everything I need at home with practices, appointments, blog posts, and what not, but it helps me keep track of my work days, what holidays I may work, in addition to the hours that I have worked. It makes it that much easier to remember for my time sheet and also what days I may have requested some leave. With this planner, I can buy the refill packs and keep using it. It's not some fancy planner, but it works for what I need it for!

ID Badge
I've gone through three of these since I've started and it isn't because they aren't worth having. To be honest, I have broken two of them because when I do rounds at work, I use it to keep my hands busy. I can't seem to not keep them busy (my hands that is.) Of course, for obvious reasons, it's also something great to hold my card I need to get into different areas of the jail and I could hold my ID if I wanted, but I usually keep that elsewhere so that it isn't lost. 

Bubba Keg & Straws
I not only keep this thing with me at work, but also at home. I find that if I have something 'pretty' I'm more likely to use it. I found this Bubba Keg at Walmart on the clearance rack and bought a pack of the rubber straws to go with it and haven't put it down yet. It holds 32 ounces of water and I usually drink three to four of the a night! It keeps me hydrated and I don't drink so much coffee at night so that I can sleep in the morning. I love my pretty little Bubba Keg!

Orbit Wintermint Gum
Yet another thing that keeps me from eating so much at night when I may have down time. It also helps to keep my breath so fresh haha. I also keep Tic-Tacs, but I like gum better because it seems to last a little longer than the Tic-Tacs...

Pilot G2 Pens
These pens are my absolute favorite. I don't buy any others because I just don't like them. I buy the extra fine ones and they have been the best. Everyone has their own preference, but I think these are awesome...I also realllllyyyyy like click pens click. click. click.

What can't you live without at work?!

Today I'm linking up with Bella and the City, Let It Shine,Weekending, Monday MadnessGrateful Heart, Meet up Monday, and Mingle Monday.


  1. Totally agree! And the cuter your supplies the better haha!

  2. Without my badge, I can't get anywhere, so I must have that. I try to have mints of some sort on hand so that I don't snack so much during the day! And I absolutely must have a freshly sharpened Ticonderoga pencil. Oh, and I've broken a few badges too - when they get stuck in the car and I slam the door on them. Oops!

  3. I am obsessed with Pilot G2 pens!! which reminds me I need to buy a new pack.

    I can't wait for my Happy Planner to get here!! I think it's crucial to keep track of holidays, paydays, time off and those other to do's that you need to get done because your brain can't store it all sometimes lol.

    I need to get a cuter lanyard for my badge cuz the one I have doesn't hold onto the actual card very well.

    This was such a cute and creative post. I may have to share on a future post what my must haves for work are :)

    Thanks for linkin' up! xo
