I’m sure most of your drawers are full of the obvious “life savers” : toothbrush, mints, advil, bandaids, hair brushes and maybe even a nail file. But consider some of these less obvious essentials.
1. Dry Shampoo: I like this T3 - Orlando Pita because it is designed to blend in with your hair color instead of making it look gray (available in 2 colors: one for brunettes and another for blondes). For those of you that aren’t familiar with dry shampoo, it’s magic! Its a hair product that takes all the grease out of your hair and makes it look as if you just washed it. Oh, and it smells good too!
2. Standard Black Blazer: you never know when you will get pulled into a meeting with clients or the Big Boss and you can never go wrong with a black blazer (just hang it on the back of you chair - it will save you one of these days).
3. Nude-colored bra: Not that I am speaking from experience or anything, but imagine the day that your bra strap breaks and you have to go searching for a safety pin all over the office. Instead you can just grab a spare bra that you discretely keep inside your desk drawer and change into it in the ladies room.
4. Nail Polish Pen: I love how my nails look on the first day after a manicure. But after pounding on the keyboard for a day or so my nails start to chip at the edges. This pen is great for small touch ups. But ladies please don’t use this at your desk. This is a bathroom only product - just like the bra!
What did I miss? What kind of “life savers” do you have in your desk?
