In my drawer

I've started keeping a little stash of supplies in a desk drawer at work, for all those times that I've wished I had something handy and didn't. So far, I've compiled:
  • EO's organic lavender hand sanitizer.
  • An assortment of Yogi teas (green, echinacea, ginger, etc.)
  • Burt's Bees honey lip balm
  • Extra hairbands, bobbie pins, and a miniature can of hairspray
  • Mini-pack of Herban Essentials towelettes (perfect for a mid-afternoon aromatherapy pick-me-up!)

I plan to add:

  • Band-aids and moleskin (handy when breaking in new shoes...)
  • An extra pair of opaque black tights (I wear these all winter under dresses and skirts and tend to get runs mid-day...super annoying!)
  • Kiss My Face olive & aloe moisturizer
  • A variety of fun greeting cards to jot notes to friends over my lunch break or for co-workers' birthdays
  • A bar of high-quality dark chocolate

Do you have a stash of any kind at work? What do you keep in it?

Nice post. I live in Mumbai, India and the rains here are really bad. So during the monsoons, I usually keep a change of clothes. Then there's ofcourse that pair of heels to change into once you get to work, a moisturiser, a packet of green tea and artificial sugar. A BIG pack of tissues and ketchup!

Trail mix, compact mirror, glasses cleaner, Yerba Mate, kleenex, hand sanitizing gel, floss, band-aids, Pepto-Bismal, Ibuprofen, napkins, silverware, condiments, sugar packets, and the pride and joy:

A Burt's Bee's kit (similar to this one: http://www.burtsbees.com/other/gifts-kits-merchandise-kits/essential-body-kit.html) which contains almond milk hand creme, hand salve, lip balm, beeswax/banana hand creme, lemon butter cuticle creme, milk/honey lotion, aloe/buttermilk lotion, all in delightfully small containers.

And usually a bar of Trader Joe's dark chocolate with hazelnuts... but I have yet to replenish my stash this week!

PS: Don't buy any dark chocolate til you see your gift package tonight!
