Tip #1: Label EVERYTHING!
You know that feeling when you first get a label-maker and you just can’t put it down? Revitalize your office and give yourself an energy boost by picking it up again. Go through old folders that can be re-purposed, finally stick a label on that junk-box you threw together on the top shelf, and label the spines or covers of your notebooks for easy reference.
Tip #2: Start Nesting
Sounds odd, right? Nesting is basically the act of purging the things that distract you and clutter your office, while finding homes for the necessary items like your pens and pencils, folders and notebooks, and other office items. Putting things in their rightful place on a daily or weekly basis will keep your office tidy and you’ll finally remember where you put that darn business card of a friend you’ve been meaning to contact.
Tip #3: Add a Pop of Color
Whether it’s a nice, bright file folder, or the funky lamp in the corner of your office, remember to have a couple vivid hues surrounding you to brighten your mood. Try to keep all the colors cohesive though, as we’re not suggesting you work in an office decorated like Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (unless you’re an avid fan). If you work inside the majority of the day, color will remind you to smile from time to time. (And don’t forget to actually pop out for a walk around the block a couple times a day – nothing is better than exercise and a bit of fresh air.)

For other ideas on how to use dot paper, check out Bonnie Jean’s guest post here on our blog, The Joy of Dots.
I have filled up thousands of pages of notebooks with what seems like every kind of paper.
Most wilted under the weight and wear of all the pens and glues I put on them. Many of the bindings stretched or fell apart or at least became misshapen. I have been enamored with graph paper of all types but most lines simply want to be more prominent in the drawing than I want them to be.
Enter the Rhodia Dot paper. It loves my pens, smooth but slightly textured, the dots are ready to be a surface — a subtle ground to hold the drawing but not interfere with the story the image tells.
Just as quickly, the dots can be a starting place for a new drawing. They can be used to create an open space, a surface that allows the first pencil marks to open up the space on the page to become its own new world.
Finally, in a drawing with curves and organic shapes, the dots become invisible to my creative eye and are a silent partner in the creative process. In this world of dots on smooth slightly textured paper, the dots can vanish under the lines of my pen and become the structure of a drawing.
Thank you Rhodia Dots.

I’m so excited to get this planner and get organized. I didn’t get a planner in January and am excited for a fresh new start in August; ready for a great rest of the year!
Dated August 2012 to July 2013, Rhodia’s Academic Weekly Planner is the perfect go-to datebook for paper-loving students and professionals. The sewn binding allows the Rhodia WebPlanner to lay flat when open, and the matching elastic closure keeps any loose notes tucked inside when closed.
Printed in crisp grey and orange, the Rhodia 2012-13 Pocket Weekly Planner has the week (Monday through Saturday) on the left, and a large grid area for notes (plus Sunday) on the right. The Large Weekly Planner is slightly different as it has the whole week (Monday through Sunday) on the left, and a whole grid page on the right for notes.
See your plans clearly on the white, 90 gsm, acid-free paper and easily go to the week in progress using the tear-off corners. Keep track of your essentials with the classy Rhodia 2012-2013 Academic Weekly Planner! See all our Academic Planners on EPC here!
