So, you sit down at a job and you have an almost empty desk. The only things you have been given are laptop, docking station, monitor, keyboard and mouse. Ive collected some things from the storage cabinet and ordered an ergonomic keyboard, but what do I need for my desk. I can order whatever I need (within reason). My boss has already said he will approve all reasonable desktop items. So, what can't you live without at work??

I need a small clock by my desk at home when I am working, so I dont completely lose track of time! I also need two calendars, one monthly and one for the year.

Hmmm...well, looking around at my desk I see:

Pens, notepads, 3x5 cards, sticky notes, paper clips, stapler & staples, kleenex, file folders, small bulletin board (I want a whiteboard).

This

And a phone, tape, calculator, penholder, in/out box so people know where to put stuff instead of just dumping it anywhere on your desk...highlighters, whiteout, binder clips, vitamins, calendar, ruler, scissors, nail file, and a ponytail holder.
