Before I went on vacation to Cartagena Colombia, I set a goal for myself. I wanted to come back to a really happy and motivating workspace. While I do have a shared edit suite downstairs, where I spent some time doing post production, I sit in my cubicle for a big part of the day. This is what my cubicle looked like. What a disaster RIGHT?
I have awesome coworkers and they make sitting in this area so much fun, that I never realized how boring my workspace looked. We are always sharing pens, candy, and especially gum! So when I found out Extra® Gum Polar Ice® now offers a 35 -Stick pack, I knew I had to pick up a few for the office. Also, this inspired me to give my whole cubicle a makeover.
I picked up the new Extra® 35-stick pack at Walgreens, It’s super easy to find in the candy/gum aisle or at checkout. They are under $3 and perfect to share with friends, family, and co-workers. I love that it has more gum than usual packages and it comes in a durable and recycled package. I even kept one in my purse during my trip to Colombia.
After Walgreens, it was time to go buy decorations for my cubicle. I headed to a discounted department store. I found so many fabulous things. Planners, penholders, mason jars, picture frames and much more. I was all set and excited to start decorating! I began with this corkboard and some photos.
I liked the color of the board, but I felt it needed a little pattern, so I decided to add decorative tape around the edges.
What do you think Littlefinders? Seriously decorative paper tape was one of my best finds! And there’s nothing more inspiring that having photos of people you care about in your work area. I also left some space on the board so I can add some motivational quotes and goals of mine later on.
I was feeling good about making the decision to re-decorate my cubicle. Next, I wanted to add some color! I have glass rather than cork so I decided to use wrapping paper. It’s super affordable, colorful and it won’t damage the glass! I cut the paper to fit each section and it made a huge different. On top of it, I put some of my certificates of achievements and a couple of other photos.
Now that the glass was done, I needed to organize the desk part. I wanted to add some motivational books I brought from home. They’re good for a quick read on those days you are feeling down or great to share with coworkers.
These are some of my favorite books. My desk was starting to look good!
Now, I don’t know about you, but I have a ton of miscellaneous things on my desk (emergency birthday cards, chargers, USB drives, etc.) to keep everything organized I found this awesome box in the shape of a book. Not only does it keeps everything tidy, but also serves as decoration!
Speaking of keeping things organized, a planner is the number one thing you need to have a successful workday. I recommend getting something fun and inspiring like this one. Some fun folders might also help you keep your days organized.
A pretty container to hold you pencils and pens can inspire you to be productive. For my container, I simply added some decorative tape to a mason jar to give it some life! This is also the perfect way to share with co-workers
I also switched my old black stapler and USB drive for these cute animal shape ones! How adorable right?
Now you can’t forget to stay hydrated, especially if you are spending 8 hours at work. I thought this pink water cup matched my desk perfectly!
Finally, my favorite part of decorating my work area was my big mason jar full of Extra® Gum Polar Ice® . I used three 35 pieces packs and it filled up the whole thing! My coworkers were so excited when they got back from meetings and saw it. I think it’s not only the perfect way to share, but also to fight those sweet afternoon cravings. Plus it might get some brownie points with my coworkers ;). #GIVEEXTRAGETEXTRA
So this is the final product. My cubicle looks awesome! What do you guys think? I am so happy with how it turned out and I feel it’s going to make my workdays a lot more enjoyable. Plus when I need a little something sweet for me or to share I have my mason jar full Extra® Gum Polar Ice®
