If you don’t already know, I run my brand out of my house. Luckily I've upgraded from storing inventory boxes stacked in my hallway and stored under my Ikea bed, to a Harry-Potter-like closet, so I actually have a small space now! But, I still need my essential supplies that help me keep going and help me run Emma Lou on an everyday basis.
If you have a brand or just want to elevate your work from home setup, I’m going to share a list of my all- time favorite work essentials.
✿ Thank you cards I always like to write a personalized note for each order. I love receiving them when I order something online, and I always feel so special. So I love to do the same for all of the lovely people who support me!
✿ Felt Pens I love these pens! These are what I use to write my thank you cards with and pretty much fill my notebook with. This pack comes with like 12 pens and I put one in every purse, backpack, and always stick one in my notebook- so good.
✿ Laptop Stand Hunching at my desk became the norm for me, and I was starting to slouch everywhere I went. This laptop stand helps me sit up straighter and is so much easier on my back. Makes me feel a little more professional too.
✿ Keyboard & Mouse Some people might be annoyed by this sound this keyboard makes, but TBH it’s so soothing for me. I love the feeling of typing- you know? This keyboard also comes in so many cute colors. I got the blue and white one and love it.
✿ Wardrobe Rack this is ESSENTIAL for all of my pop up shops for me to wheel my clothes in and out of where I need to set up. It’s nice to display my clothing on two separate racks too and people love it.
✿ Sign Holder I love these sign holders because this is where I’ll put payment a method graphic, a little more information about the brand, and then a price menu. It’s helpful for people to do a scan-through of what your brand encompasses so they can learn more and hopefully you’ll gain a customer!
I hope these products are helpful for you and your work from home situation!
