The end of the year is always a busy time for everyone at work - trying to get all the bits and pieces sorted before the year’s out as most of us have at least a few days off. And that’s not to mention worrying about getting everything done outside of work.

Despite the fact you probably have a million and one things to do, it’s important not to forget about getting ready for next year as well. If you don’t get a jump on things, you could start the new year feeling somewhat under prepared, which isn’t an ideal way to kick things off.

Here are some office supplies and other items that can help you get organised for the new year.

Calendar making supplies

We all have calendars on our phones and computers nowadays, but sometimes you just can’t beat a good wall hanging calendar. By using a traditional calendar, you can quickly and easily see what you have planned rather than having to flick open an app, find the right day or month, etc. They’re also more attractive, allowing you to use your own images and personalise them.

Here at JFK Binding, we have a range of calendar making supplies, including calendar hangers and hole punches.

We also have a great calendar starter kit, which includes a binding machine so you can quickly and easily make as many calendars as you need.

ID Supplies

The new year is a good time to take stock and ensure that all of your ID supplies and processes are all up to date and relevant. It’s also a time that many businesses take on new staff, which means that you’ll need a fresh stock of ID accessories - items like lanyards, ID cards, card holders, etc, are all important to have just in case you need them.

Check subscriptions

It might also be worth double checking any subscriptions you currently have. Subscriptions that you took out at the start of the year might be about to end, so rather than having to deal with that after it’s happened, it’ll save time and effort by doing it in advance. Check things like anti-virus software, computer package licences, even magazine subscriptions, as these could all lapse.

Office cleaning supplies

The new year is a time that many people start to take better care of themselves and generally turn over a new leaf, so help them out by giving the office a good deep clean. This gives everyone a clean and tidy place to work to kick off the new year.
