7 Stationery Items You Need To Work From Home

Pens And Highlighters

The humble pen is essential for everything from taking quick notes to writing out your weekly schedule. Besides a regular ballpoint pen, there are various types you can look at including gel rollerball pens, fountain pens and markers.


A notebook is a great tool to help you keep track of your ideas, meeting notes, tasks, meal plans and calendar. The kind of notebook and how many you need will depend on the nature of your work.

Files And Binders

If you deal with a lot of printed documents, having a few files and binders can keep them organised. Box files and folders are great for keeping various documents without structure in one place, making them suitable for odds and ends of a specific project.

Wall Memo Board And Post-It Notes

If you take down a lot of ideas or have multiple things on your to-do list, it’s a good idea to invest in a wall memo board. That way, you can quickly jot down important ideas or notes and stick them up somewhere easy to see. Invest in multi-coloured post-it notes so you can colour code your notes.


Fasteners such as paper clips, staplers and bulldog clips are essential stationery in Perth as many people use them to easily separate and keep their documents in order. If you deal with printed documents or regularly send letters, you need the right fasteners in your office.

Desk Organiser

When you’ve accumulated a good amount of stationery in your Perth home office, you’ll need a desk organiser to keep them all in one place. After all, you wouldn’t want all your stationery cluttering up your desk or going missing. You can even look out for organisers that hold books and letters.

Printer And Printer Ink

A printer is crucial in any home office. With it, you can print important business documents, letters, mockups or flyers. Get a printer with a scanner and Wi-Fi connectivity as these features will make your workday a lot easier.
