This Week’s Obsession: Card Wheel by Real Simple

In case you missed last week’s post, allow me to catch you up to speed- I geek out on sexy office supplies (double word score for anything that can save me time) and have decided it’s high time I actually gave some blog love to my favorites.

‘Tis the season for networking- between end of the year get togethers and holiday soirees, I feel like I have booked most weekday evenings through December 31. My biggest issue, above and beyond finding heels I can wear for more than two hours, is gathering and holding onto business cards.

Enter Real Simple’s Card Wheel, which I bumped into while perusing the office supply section of Target. It became, in fact, the first thing I ever bequeathed to my summer intern Shelley. Small enough to fit in my purse (regular and mini party size mind you) and when I finally head home, I’m all but guaranteed the cards are in one spot. And more importantly, they are devoid of any wine stains. 🙂

It may seem small, but I’ve saved a tremendous amount of time but this one simple change in habit. The best news- I recently found them at Target on clearance so make sure you head to your nearest one soon.. that is, before I buy the rest of them.

Until next time,
