being MVP: Spring Home Office Organization Tips @Staples

Spring Home Office Organization Tips @Staples

Disclosure: I received the filing cabinet and pair of chairs from Staples for review. All opinions are my own.


When I first got married, the 2nd bedroom was a home office/guest room which was nice because it was spacious. 8 years and 2 kids later, the office is now a nook on the 3rd floor. It's a relatively small space that became cluttered with files and knick knacks. Since I didn't have room for the huge executive chair, I resorted to using a small stool from Kenzie's table. It was time for a spring cleaning!




I like to think that I am pretty organized but once you add all the important things for two children, it becomes a bit overwhelming. My plastic file bucket broke during the move yet I kept shoving things into it without actually putting them into the file folders because I became lazy. In line with Spring, the pastel hanging file folders gave me the motivation to tackle the paper. From my tiny little plastic box, I threw out 2 bags of paperwork and manuals that were no longer necessary. It only took a few minutes to label the tabs which makes finding something really easy.


These fit perfectly into the Poppin File Cabinet ($199.99) from Staples. I love the contrast of black drawers against the white cabinet. It looks chic and the round corners make it safe for my kids who were inquisitive and wanted to dig around in it. From first look, it seems to be compact however once you start filling it up, it is very spacious (16” x 20” x 24”). There are 3 drawers that can easily fit file folders, craft supplies, important documents, office accessories and more. You can even lock the cabinet if you want to secure the contents.

What's neat about this file cabinet is that it seamlessly slides underneath our desk therefore maximizing the office space. Keeping important files organized is definitely important so you don't have to dig through a pile of dusty paperwork (like my Hubs when he was looking for the title to his car just the other weekend!).


After using my Poppin cabinet, I decided to revamp my desk at work with some new accessories since they order from Staples exclusively. However, since we order from a specific catalog that didn't include Poppin products, I have smoke acrylic desk accessories which are also awesome. Since my Poppin fix wasn't complete, I popped on over to my local Staples store and picked up a few Poppin office supplies thanks to Hubs.

The pieces are really affordable and you can keep it monotone with your favorite color or go all out and feature the rainbow hue. How amazing is my gold poppin notebook? I am definitely headed back soon to stock up on more fun Poppin items because they make the top of your desk feel zen and decluttered.


We have always purchased the executive leather office chairs from Staples but since our new office space was tight and I didn't want to accidentally roll down the stairs when lounging, I wanted something different and fresh. Who knew that Staples carried such a variety of accent chairs that were modern and unique? We mostly shop in store and purchase on impulse and I never thought of using an accent chair for the office.

I am converted after sitting in the Baxton Studio Dario Chair ($230.99/set of 2). I've seen similar chairs pop up all over my Instagram and Pinterest feeds. I just had to attach the legs and Kenzie couldn't wait to sit on it. She did claim one as her chair in the living room. The plastic is durable and the steel base makes it study. I can easily curl up on this while I work or sit straight with back support. This is a much needed relief after slumping over Kenzie's stool for over a year. Don't get scared about straying from the usual office chair.


I begged Hubs to put up the art that I've had for almost 2 years which I love because of the H for home. I eventually want to put up some neat shelves that I saw at Staples for additional storage. My mother-in-law refreshed my dying orchid with a new one. Can you believe she gives me orchids all the time? I'm a lucky daughter-in-law. My home looks so organized and clean and I am so motivated to work here because I am now calm and free of clutter. I've always been wary of white but don't you think it opens up my tiny space? I just need a new laptop......

Make sure to Connect with Staples on Facebook and Twitter.

What do you think of my space? Are you organizing your home office for spring? What items do you want from Staples to help?
